For Leina

The Swap went really well, I think. More on that later. But for now, I have some pictures of the sparkle butt leggings. I decided to style them with the vintage Spice Girls tee, because Leina loves them as well.

I loved this look. A bit Glam, a bit Casual.

The tee is not really as faded out as it looks, but it is pretty faded. I cut the neck and arms to give it a bit more edge.

These leggings are so thick I was totally comfortable wearing them as pants. They do get a tiny bit baggy over the course of the night but not horribly so.

This is one of my all time favorite Spice Girls promo shots.

I’m still crazy for the Talon necklace. It just seems perfect with everything.

I added all these spike to this clutch. It took forever, FOREVER and it gave me blisters, but I love the way it came out.

You can just about get a house key, a drivers license, a credit card, a gloss and a blackberry in there. Bare minimum for me, but I can handle it.

Sparkle butt looks great.

Where did you find the spikes? I don't know where to look for them and keep coming up empty handed when I try.

Thanks!

Sparkle butt! such a great job of styling them. And that clutch amazing! I just got that jacket recently and am in love with it - I love the military style but on my side of the world it is impossible to find anything like that so had to snap it up when i saw it on the site!

I love those leggings and I am not even into shiny things. This would also look great with the vintage t, boots, butt leggins and a military blazer or fitted blazer

Alannah said...

That is one of my top three shots of the Spice Girls too! That was my laptop desktop pic forever,

So glad the swap went well--I hope you'll post more details about it!

Love the sparkle butt leggings & they look great on you!

XOXO

I'm mad at the Spice Girls...I didn't even know when they decided on the dates for the Toronto show...it was too late to get tix..also uber expensive and I heard they lip sync'd the concert...bitter? Yes!

BAM,
I got them at http://studsandspikes.com/ and they were pretty affordable. I also got a bunch of studs but have not been inspired by them yet.

Linda,
I will give you the ticket thing. You had to sign up for a lottery for the chance to buy them when they went on sale. We signed up for multiple cities and ended up with one lottery code each. . Only a few people qualified, Alannah got Vegas, and I got LA. They sent you a code that gave you the right to TRY and get tickets. Then we tried to get tickets and we both got pretty good ones so we went to both shows. I have to say though, THEY DID NOT LIP SYNC! That is total bull. They sang every word. And it was AMAZING. Like a religious experience. Both nights.
