Win a Free Pair of Perfect Fit Jeans from Eddie Bauer!

Finding the right pair of jeans is one of the hardest shopping endeavors ever.  For me, flared styles tend to work best since I'm smaller in the waist and fuller in the hips.  But thanks to Eddie Bauer's new denim line -- which launches online and at Eddie Bauer stores everywhere Aug. 6 -- I've found a petite pair of straight jeans that fit my curves perfectly.

After compiling feedback from thousands of women, focus groups, trunk shows and hours of fine-tuning, Eddie Bauer created new fits based on three body types: Truly Straight (rectangular body shape), Slightly Curvy (modified hourglass body shape) and Curvy (true hourglass body shape). Truly Straight and Slightly Curvy denim is available in Short, Regular, Long, Petite and Tall in sizes 0-20; Curvy denim is available in Short, Regular, Long, Petite and Tall in sizes 2-20 as well as 16W-24W.
Made with premium StayShape denim, the jeans focus on Shape, Stretch and Slimming.  Developed in partnership with Cone Denim, an American company founded in 1891, StayShape jeans fit like a glove and always maintain their shape.
Everything She Wants is giving one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of Eddie Bauer's new perfect fit jeans.

  1. My name is Chelsea, I'm 23 years old and need a new pair of jeans because I just lost a lot of weight and no longer fit in my jeans and don't really have money for a new wardrobe. Thanks.

  3. Hi, I'm Beth. I'm--ahem--early 50's (cough) and my figure is changing. I was an off-the-rack size 5/6 all my life--from teen-age until about 2 years ago. I've become curvier and am having a lot of trouble learning how to shop for what seems to be my new permanent shape.

    Right now I'm doing an internship at school full time so I'm not making that much money. All I do is wear scrub outfits so I haven't been shopping in awhile. I'm still looking for that perfect pair of jeans. thank you!

    I'm Michelle and I'm 46 years old. Wish I could say it was because of weight loss that I need a new pair but alas the opposite is true. Right now not one of my pants fits comfortably and while I've managed not to move into the extra plus size department, I know I need a larger size than I used to wear and something with a comfortable waistband. Lately, I've been wearing sweatpants rather than my "I-can't-breathe-without-pain" jeans. Finding a pair of jeans that not only looks good but is comfortable can take an Act of Congress not to mention a full-blown melt-down in the middle of the store.

  6. My name is Cheri, and I am 20 years old. I need a new pair of jeans because I rarely find a pair that fits me perfectly. I drift from almost 3 different sizes. Jeans often are too tight around my thighs yet are wide around my waist. I would love to finally own a favorite pair of jeans I love. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I need a new pair of jeans because I haven't had a "new to me" pair for at least a year. I can never find a pair that suits me so I stick to my old and very worn jeans. I could go out and buy some new ones, but it'd be super nice to win them instead!

  20. My name is Erin, I'm 28, and I need a new pair of jeans because I've never, ever found a pair that fit and flattered. In college, girls would make fun of me because my jeans were too baggy in the rear, and now, the few pairs I have are pretty lame. I don't feel confident in them and lousy jeans can spoil an otherwise gorgeous look.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

Celebrate the Holiday Season with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in New York City

Watching the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater makes me proud to be a Black woman. This ballet company is graced by dancers of color who can tackle any technique or dance style. But whether the choreography is rooted in jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop or ballet, they do it the Ailey way, which means they move with so much culturally rooted soulfulness and swag that I find myself marveling at their languid form and fierce footwork. In my lifetime, I've seen the Ailey company perform at least a dozen times and each time I picked a performance that included Mr. Ailey's beloved "Revelations." I will never grow tired of witnessing this jubilant homage to the Black Southern Baptist church. By the end I'm always standing, singing and clapping along with the rest of the audience's Amen chorus. Yes, rock a my soul in the bosom of Abraham ! Like most theatrical events and performing arts programs, this is Ailey's comeback season after going dark in 2020 due to

Spring Cleaning: Clean Out Your Closet and Earn Extra Cash

Remember clothing?  As much as we love our athleisure, we can still recall what it was like to wake up and put on something other than hoodies, T-shirts, joggers and leggings. And now that coronavirus vaccines are available and we're resuming some sort of normalcy, we look forward to traveling again and meeting up with fellow vaccinated family and friends for brunch and outdoor fun (still wearing masks and socially distancing in public spaces). We also look forward to refreshing our wardrobe.  But if you want to make room for new garments, it's time to declutter and find a new home for the clothes, shoes and accessories you haven't worn in a season. Donating to a thrift store or charitable organization is always a good option.  For certain items in new or nearly new condition, however, you can also earn some cash by selling them at a consignment shop.   Here are several e-commerce and retail consignment shops we love: thredUp  makes cleaning out your closet easy.  Simply re
