geekiviews: Jean Leggings by Joe’s Jeans


Jean Leggings by Joe's Jeans

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 and  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.  It makes me angry.

Breaking Down The Buy Design Outfit

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.

The leggings are Member’s Only.

The shoes are Nine West, a Balenciaga knockoff I’m told. I lived in these sandals last summer and plan on doing the same this summer.

Purple Clutch is YSL.

The feathered headpiece is from KC Hats (998 Bathurst St). I never imagined that the headpiece would work without hair, but I was proven wrong in the studio and I left the studio with it in a bag.

i want: Alexander McQueen leggings 

Eiffel Tower Leggings - Spring 2009

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.


Skeleton-print Lycra leggings, Crystal print leggings, Eiffel Tower leggings, Alexander McQueen Eiffel Tower top

To be totally badass I would love to pair the Eiffel Tower leggings with the Alexander McQueen Eiffel Tower top and a pair of Metallic shoe boots.

I got: Members Only Liquid Leggings

Members Only Liquid Leggings

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.

Loving the leggings from Threeasfour’s Spring 2009 Collection

The leggings from Threeasfour are awesome. More pictures from all angles are on the Threeasfour website.

I’m digging this bodysuit also. It would be perfect under a sheer layer. More pictures from all angles are on the Threeasfour website.
