The J. Crew story made me facepalm earlier this week. I know I should avoid shopping there, but they are the only place I’ve found that make jeans that fit my body perfectly. :-/ It’s hard to give up a fantastic pair of jeans.

On a happier note, Bryn’s story was incredible. It left me grinning and speechless. So brave. :)
