{LOOKBOOK} A PERSONAL SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

For my Project: Get Dressed this week I wanted to play around with textures but in a monotone way.  We all know that my favorite colors are black and white, and I'm far too messy to wear all white.  So I threw on my leather leggings, suede knee high boots, a black t-shirt and black skirt.  Ladies, if you only take one thing away from my blog, let it be this: 
LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS.  COVER YOUR BUM.  
I might have a t-shirt made with that saying.  I could probably write it off on my taxes as charity.

Forever21 t-shirt, Forever21 skirt, Charlotte Russe leggings, Kohls boots, Charlotte Russe scarf
White House Black Market earrings, New York and Company ring, Kohls watch




I'm looking directly into your soul.

Thanks to my costar, The Leaf, in these photos.

I actually love this look. I had a co-worker comment on a shirt I paired with leggings. His opinion was I appeared to be going to the club.

Fashion Fail.

Ha! Isn't that the truth?!? I can't stand when girls wear leggings like they're pants! Even on the skinniest of chics, it's just not all that flattering. lol

You look amazing, girl!! I love the sheen on those leggings. The all black looks smokin' on you!

Super cute look! And you are soooo right.... leggings do not equal pants, and no one wants to see your behind in public!

I'm in college, and this is the outfit of nearly EVERY college girl. I hate it. Even if you are skinny and can pull it off... you shouldn't. Leggings are acceptable when worn under a dress/skirt, no other time.
I love this outfit though! Leather leggings are daring! Do they get sweaty? (Even though it's Pittsburgh in Feb[although it's been oddly warm lately!])

I agree 100% Cover the bum, Leggings are not pants :-)

You look lovely! Back is my Fav color too!

Girlie Blogger said...

Fantastic outfit. Love black on black.

You and the leaf both rocked this photo shoot.

And THANK YOU, leggings are NOT pants. I actually yelled that at a woman in front of my job the other day. It wasn't my proudest moment, but I was pushed to my breaking point.

I'd buy one of those t-shirts. I'm all for wearing what you want, when you want, but leggings are an alternative to tights, not trousers! You might as well wear jeans as a hat. They are not interchangeable items of clothing!

I really like this outfit and I adore those knee high boots; am still looking for the perfect one for me, no such luck yet :(
