Hi Amanda! My wife gets shopping anxiety, and I would like to take her to a store where she can just put on a great pair of jeans that fit. She just recently outgrew her Levis Bold Curve Skinny Boot 34's which were her favorite pair, from my understanding that's the largest size they offer in-store? I don't want to take her to do their silly measurement song and dance just to have them tell her they don't carry her size. Do you have any good recommendations for in-store jeans shopping? Thanks!
What about a department store like Nordstrom or Macys?
I’d recommend Nordstrom first as they provide such amazing customer service. You of course might spend a little more than Levi’s prices - but they carry amazing brands like Kut from Kloth, James and NYDJ up to size 16 in their “straight size” section and have an amazing selection of plus size jeans in the same brands as well. Additionally they do on-site tailoring! I highly recommend them
Macys carries the levis plus size jeans in store - though in my experience they don’t have as great of customer service and sometimes the plus size section of macys can feel very removed and isolating. In addition, they also carry the Style &Co jeans which are a personal favorite of mine.
I hope this helps!

Please forgive my ignorance. I am a new fan to your blog. I LOVE your style and you have inspired me to be more adventurous with my style (Hello, Skinny Jeans!!!). I have noticed your tags on postings are "queer" and "femme". Is your partner S transgender? I feel ridiculous for asking. But I was curious if you identify as queer, even though your significant other is male.
Hi - glad to have inspired your style!!!
I am queer, as is my partner S!
As much as this blog is an intimate peek into my life, I feel odd telling S’s story here. I do let y’all have a look at the both of us sometimes and i’ll share our together stuff, but his background is his own to tell and since he’s not speaking, i don’t feel super comfortable talking too much more about his identity.
As a general statement, I would just like to say that if you ID as queer, you’re queer - regardless of the gender identity of your past/present/future partner(s).
I really am 34. I stay out of the sun. I don’t have kids. I dress the way I want. I’ve lived so many lives.
