The Strong Suit x #ExpressU9:00 AM
Let's start with jean shirts! I love them. They are seen in about MOST of my Life's Styles posts and they are amazing versatile pieces of clothing that everyone should have in their wardrobe. Luckily I was able to grab a jean shirt and place some super cute patches on it. I already have two jean shirts and a denim jacket that I rotate through, so of course I was happy to add another one to the collection! If I buy another jean shirt I might have a serious problem, but this one was for the free! How could I resist? Now onto my feelings about jeans.
If you have been a reader of The Strong Suit for some time then you know that my relationship with jeans has had its ups and downs. In my Denim Days post I mention how I literally hated jeans for a while. The only pants I wore (to mother's dismay) were leggings and quite frequently. Jeans were uncomfortable and constricting to me until...I got a summer job where I was made to wear them. I decided when shopping for jeans that I would aim for a higher price range because maybe fast fashion jeans just were not working for me (sorry Forever and H&M still love you). I was right! I bought to pairs of Express jeans for $40! Hooray for clearance sections! Ever since then I realized that I did not have a problem with jeans, I had an issue with the quality of jeans.
Did It happen if there's not a Polaroid to document it?
Overall I really enjoyed the DIY-Denim event and it really made my love for jeans and Express grow even the more! I love the ambassador program because people get to represent a brand on a local level that does not include trying to get sales. The event was fun and people were genuinely excited to see the products and try on the jeans they liked the best. It was also great to decorate our denim goodies and take our minds off of the slowly approaching midterms haha! I am so grateful to my campus ambassadors Ali, Emily, and Jalen for putting on a great event!
