Imogene+Willie Garage Sale This Saturday

Posted by on Thu, Mar 8, 2012 at 3:37 PM

Listen, I've been known to save for months to buy shoes that cost as much as my rent, consider $300 sweaters "a steal," and hoard T-shirts that are, on sale, still pricey enough to confound my boyfriend, who subsists mainly on Army surplus and Target. But I don't buy a lot of clothes — maybe four or five pieces a year — and I tend to wear the same thing over and over again. It's just that I prefer that same thing to be something really, really nice. Still, I was apprehensive about buying jeans from Imogene+Willie. For some reason I equated the high price with fanciness, and fancy jeans are just the worst.

But back in January I caved, and let me tell you, I totally get it now. I wore them every single day for the first two weeks I had them. I'm wearing them right now. I'll probably wear them tomorrow.

If you're curious about I+W but apprehensive about dropping a chunk of your paycheck on denim (or are already a fan), check out the garage sale in front of the store's location at 12th Avenue South and Sweetbriar on Saturday. From 7-11 a.m., they'll have sale jeans — I've been told pairs that retail for $225 and up will be cut to a relatively affordable $85 — plus design samples, denim seconds, and vintage culled from their archives. Note! It's in-store only; no email or phone sales. And it's first come, first serve — no early birds.

And if you want something that makes you feel tough and glamorous in a 1980s Justine Bateman kind of way, go with black Hazel jeans.
