Bits and Pieces: Black And Gray
November,08 2013 |
If these leggings don’t scream sass – I don’t know what does. I found them recently during one of my daily online window shopping excursions and immediately pinned them to my must-buy pinboard. While I have been wanting to invest in real leather leggings, I have such a hard time finding ones that fit me well as a gal under 5’4″. Most are too long, too short/high in the rise, and gape at the waist but fit me in the hips. Le sigh – the trials and tribulations of being a NORMAL woman. But I grabbed these faux ones the moment I saw them and while I am slightly in between sizes (S and M), I kept the M because they are a tad more comfortable. I think 10 years ago, I would have kept the small instead and been uncomfortable every time I wore them, so it’s a good thing I found them years later. The more ya know. And topping it off is my new infinity scarf that I cannot get enough of, and wool fedora that surprisingly keeps me much warmer than a traditional beanie. Finally we cannot bypass my favorite piece of all – the cape! I have had this cape for at least 4 years and wear it without fail every year over and over and over. It’s so easy to throw on with a pencil skirt, jeans or leggings – it makes any outfit a bit more fancy. I like to live by the motto – ‘when all else fails, put a cape on it’. Do any of you have leather/pleather leggings? What brands/fit are your favorite?
