Denim Dilemma: A Shopping Experience

After my failure to find jeans when I went shopping for summer clothes, I psyched myself up to spend a day doing nothing but denim shopping. I knew it would be frustrating, and could possibly end in failure. This is why I psyched myself up for it. To read the results of that trip, check…
