I bought a pair of wide leg dark blue trousers with a white pin stripe when I was a junior in high school. I think I spent around $18 for them. I wore the heck out of them in high school. And college. And after I got married then lost my baby weight after I had my son. I wore these pants for about 15 years until I finally let them go. Mind you, they weren't faded, they still had every stitch and had to rip or tears. I only got rid of them because after I had my daughter, I'm having much more trouble losing this baby weight and don't know if I'll ever lose this weight. I've bought bathing suits made by this brand that lasted years as well. I live in the south and it's warm enough for us to go swimming pretty much every month except in November, December, January and February if you can make it through the 15 minute's it takes your body to adjust. I wore the heck out of those bathing suits too. I love how their bathing suits are cute and playful whether you want an itty bitty bikini to show off or a tankini and boy shorts to cover everything. Their denim jeans are the only of a few brands that offer jeans that are real, thick denim and not the thin stiff with elastic sewn into it that stretches and just doesn't fit right after a few hours. I most recently bought a leather belt, it's called a Pilgrim Belt. It is real, thick leather with a square belt buckle. I love it! I only payed around $30 for it but I know if I had found the same quality at the Mall, it would have been priced at $100. I most definitely have recommended my friends go to Target when looking for close instead of going to the Mall. They have so many great designers!
