Do you ever buy an item of clothing and then wake up the next morning, look at it and laugh? Kinda like Coyote Ugly but with clothes...?
Um, yeah. I bought sequin leggings. And I bought a hairband made of fake hair. Maybe nothing crazy for others but not my regular...
The headband I'm excited to wear. As long as my rootage is dyed within the same range, the braid will make it look like I put effort in when I didn't. I'm just not the fake hair/extension girl. Ok, fine. Truth be told, all I wanted in highschool was one of those clip-on ponytails but thank goodness, I was broke and could not afford such luxury.
But sequin leggings? That's sooo out of my comfort zone. Maybe I bought them because Sasha looks so cute in the ad campaign...
Either way, I challenge you to look through my archives and you will find nary a legging. I think I've worn them out 1.45 times (.45 for a friend's casual bbq down the street, does not count as a full wear). I admire Erin from Work With What You've Got, she always works what she's got in leggings and looks dynamite but I just can't seem to take the plunge myself. Well, until now. We all know I love sequins, so I guess I'm going all out. I was a little stumped on how to actually style them up for daily wear and on my body type (avoiding emphasis on the thighs...), but yesterday I spent some time playing my favourite game, Dress-up in Jentine's Closet, and I have a few ideas.
But I'm very open to suggestions, in fact, I need them...lovely readers?...and while you're at it, what's your closet's Coyote Ugly?
PS. Go to Linda's blog and hassle her because she bought the leggings too and is going to return them. Friends don't let friends return anything sequin.
