rock and republic, gone cheap.
Yeah, I am still in shock over jeans that I used to save for MONTHS to buy and stalk the Rue La La and Gilt Groupe websites to buy at $119 (instead of their usualy $215 or $180) are now only $50 (on sale) at Kohl's!
1) I am mad that I once paid a lot of money for jeans that I felt were worth that much because their fit was so awesome and they were long enough for me to wear heels with AND they didn't stretch out as bad as other pants. So, are they still going to be quality jeans at that new price?
2) I feel like they aren't special anymore. And no, not because I'm a snobby-snob and think "oh man now the poor people can have them too", but because they were something I used to WORK for..
....and yes, if I'm honest I liked people thinking "oh, that chick can afford some R&Rs" (sue me).
3) If they can be sold that cheap, does that mean I can get all my money back for the three pair I own at a much more expensive price?
Apparently, Rock & Republic filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and they are saving themselves by giving Kohl's the sole right to sell their line now.
Call me a snob, or whatever you want, but I am disappointed.
