13 Principles

As I was browing the internets, I cam across a great pair of jeans by Hudson. The name of the style jumped out at me because it was my own- Krista. My name isn't extremely rare but it's not overly popular either. I know a few other Krista/Christas but I went all through grade school, high school and college without having any others in my class or even the school (save my entire university; there were surely others that I didn't cross paths with). Because I went all those years with a name that wasn't odd enough to be ridiculed but also unique enough to not require an attachment of my surname's first initial, I felt like a true individual, lucky. I appreciate names and their meanings. Despite not having any idea if or when I'll ever have children (someday, hopefully), I find myself thinking of original but classic names quite often. A dream job for me would be to give unique name to products like clothing, jewelry, cosmetics or nail polish. It's very rare for me to see a product with the Krista moniker attached to it. When I do (I think it may have happened once or twice before), I'm instantly intrigued.

I appreciate quality pieces and don't mind spending a little extra if I know I'm getting something that is made to last. My Dad always taught me to read the label first- not the designer but where the product was made. Italy is always a sure thing. Jeans, for me, aren't one of  the things I splurge on. I'm perfectly content with my Levi's from the department store. I actually snagged a black pair for a few dollars on major clearance at Macy's last fall! Levi's were the first and they do it right to this day. Most high-end designer jeans actually make me laugh. I don't want a bedazzled horseshoe on my ass and I surely don't want to pay hundreds of dollars for its "designer's" namesake. But these Hudson Krista Super Skinny Jeans are tempting.






As I continued my research on the illustrious jeans that seem to be sold out, I came across a promotional video from Hudson. The media highlights the brand's 13 principles. While it's certainly not Gandhi, I quite enjoyed its message.
