An observation while waiting in line behind a woman at Marshalls the other day:
Woman in line: *on the phone* "Girl, you wouldn't believe what I've found in Marshalls just now?" A pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans! $20 girl. I got a deal!
I wasn't trying to be nosy or anything (she was talking pretty loud), but the pair of jeans she had in her hand were not 7 For All Mankind. They were Seven7 brand jeans that could be found at Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Sears, etc. Now there's nothing wrong with Seven7 jeans, I love them. I think the fit is great and they have some cute styles. But, don't confuse them with the 7's we've seen plastered on the behinds of many celebs and found in many high end boutiques. They are not the same, they are not affiliated with each other. I remember my fashionista aunt had on a pair of Seven7 jeans that I complimented her on. She told me they were 7FAM until I saw the Seven7 logo on the back of them. She swore up and down that they were from the same company. Ok, if you say so. Now, someone mentioned to me that they've seen 7FAM jeans at Stein Mart for about $100, so if you want to score a pair, check to see if your local store has them. Not necessarily in a Cheap Chica's budget, but hey, I guess it's better than paying $200+ for a pair of jeans.
That is all.
