It’s sweater weather and I am finally ready to put away my summer clothes. Having grown up in Winnipeg, fondly referred to as Winterpeg, I prefer warm weather and lightweight clothing. However, after a while, I tire of wearing the same dresses and skirts and long for some newness. And that is exactly what I found when I shopped at The Primp Boutique in Rochester Minnesota. I was “lured: into the store by the cute window display. There I found myself with a great selection of fabulous jeans, all priced between $60-$70! Ok, I said to myself, I am hanging out here for a while. I chose a couple of pairs of straight-leg versions and then laid eyes on one of the sales associates who was wearing these boot-cut jeans with the raw edge bottom. I loved the way they looked on her, fitted through the waist and hips, then easing out loosely all the way to the bottom. She is very tall (5’10) and I am very not…5’3! I was doubtful that they would look as good on me, but she encouraged me to try, and I am glad that she did. This is a newer style for me (although I am fairly certain I had a pair of these in 1977, who knows? Check out the reels I did which show off the jeans from all sides, HERE.
One of the huge bonuses of shopping in Minnesota is that there is no sales tax! That allowed me to buy a couple more $66.00 cropped sweaters and another pair of $66.00 jeans…oh well!
