I received a package containing a pair of Zip Ankle Jean Legging in Black by Joe’s Jeans from Holt Renfrew PR just before Christmas. Jean Leggings were never something I would have tried before this package arrived. I hate to say it, I’ve drunk the koolaid, I like them.
When I pulled them out of the magenta bag, they looked a little small. I’ve come to realize that you need to buy them smaller than you think. They are denim and do stretch a bit. They are comfortable, it was the first thing that surprised me. They are like wearing non-denim leggings. The fabric is stretchy and soft. The zippers on the side make it easy to put on and remove.
I checked out the stash at Holt’s. They have a ton of different styles included distressed denim, acid wash andÂ tie dye. The price range is $116 – $140. The pair I have are $128. I thought it was hilarious that the distressed denim ones cost $140 even though from a production standpoint I can understand.
I hate the term jeggings and you’ll never hear me use it.Â It makes me angry.
I was very impressed with my Buy Design Outfit that I thought I should dedicate a post to it.
This the best full body shot I have at the moment. I happen to love this photo also.
The fur caplet is Bear. Yes, you read that right Bear. I don’t own it. It was rented from a great vintage shop call The Refinery (588 Markham St.). I enjoyed every second wearing that caplet. It also was the focal point of my outfit.
The top is Greta Constantine. You can’t see the back, but it’s basically non-existent on this shirt.
I was a fan of Alexander McQueen’s print crazy Spring 2009 collection. These leggings are so amazing and so expensive. I hoping they are like hand printed or something like that. They are made from lycra and very beautiful in person.
I wanted Members Only Liquid Leggings back in July of 2008. They were priced at $98.00 (yikes!!!) and available at Urban Outfitters. Today I found them on sale at Urban Outfitters for 20 bucks. Score!!!
They really do feel a little weird. I don’t anticipate they breathe much, but they aren’t as bad as the American Apparel versions. I can’t help but love them, they are so obnoxious.
