*Plus size readers, reader (and mega-hotness) JRo left a comment yesterday about Forever XXI’s denim leggings from their plus size line called Faith, and she loves them!*
After wearing these yesterday, I think they are more of a pant. Now the OTHER pair, the $20 pair, those were skin tight and very much a “jegging” as the kids are calling it. But these are more of a pant. They are made of a very stretchy, but stiffer fabric and they have a slim fit, but lots of room. In fact, they are almost TOO forgiving for my tastes. (I like it a bit tarty, what can I say?)
See? Very flattering, yes? They hit right about the ankle and on me are maybe even a bit short when I sit down.
What’s interesting to me is that these were the cheaper pair, and yet they are also the more sophisticated pair. Much more of a grown up version of skinny jeans. They have a hidden side zip. That’s way more grown up to me than my standard jegging with the elastic waist.
No pockets, just a clean back.
OK, so you guys know me. You know I am all about handmade and I love jewelry and bags by artists, not giant corporations…but man, do I love these…
These pictures do not even do them justice. They look like I happened upon them at an estate sale, they are jut stunning. I have a mirror set up in my cube (so I can see you walk up behind me when I am wearing headphones and not get the bejeezus scared out of me, not because I am The World’s Most Vain Girl) and I won’t lie. I stared at them all day yesterday. And I am wearing the gold version today. I planned my outfit around them. Both days.
I’m going to have to replace these soonish. I am not looking forward to it.
I adore these and even though they are just cheap old Payless shoes they have been some of my favorites. And I am going to have a hard time replacing them with anything but another pair. I mean, the color, the buttons, the shape…it’s all perfect. At least I wore them out instead of being afraid to. Do you ever do that? Have something and love it and know you can’t replace it, so you just never use it? Keeping it like new forever? I hate when I do that. I am trying really hard to break that habit.
