Thrift Shopping Got Me Started

I would have never thought I would spend $300 for a pair of jeans until a few years ago when I decided to splurge. When I was growing up, I used to buy all of my clothes from thrift shops; I think this is how I fell in love with designer clothes and clothes that were made well.

With thrifting ingrained in me, even now, a $300 pair of jeans seemed like an extravagant gift to myself, but a few years ago, I purchased a pair of AG jeans. The look and feel of these jeans made them my “go to” pair in a closet that was often filled with beautiful jeans, but not comfortable ones. I had nearly 20 pairs of jeans in my closet!

What is it about AG Jeans that make me feel so special?

I began to think about all the money I have invested in trying to find a jean that not only looked right for my body type, but a jean I could feel as good in throughout the day.
AG Jeans are worth every penny because they fulfill two MUSTS.

I decided to bring the AG line into Allure this past summer.
As customers began trying them on, we watched them fly out of the door! We had to quickly reorder within a week of arrival and now they are our best selling item at Allure

So, now that we love them, let's dive into JEAN-UCATION to find the right style and fit for you!

I will go over how to choose what jean is right for your body type.
