I did it! I bought the leather leggings. Along with a load of other stuff from American Apparel. I'm so super excited, you don't even know. I'm just on the edge of my seat waiting until they come in the mail. Online shopping is god. Here is an inventory of
all of my purchases.
1 fuchsia + purple striped
2 black cowl neck sleeveless shift dress
3 lavender tulip skirt
4 navy tulip skirt
5 white tights
6 sheer hot pink tights
7 black knee socks
8 sheer hot pink knee socks
9 "leather" leggings
10 (not pictured) purple tights from Urban Outfitters
So the second after I sent in my order, I rushed to my room to concoct some potential outfit combinations with my new clothes. After about 20 minutes, I ended up with three pages of madly scrawled words. I swear, these things I bought are so versatile, especially the socks and tights.
I bought a size up in the striped t-shirt so I can wear it a bit oversized over the leggings. I would never wear just leggings with a normal shirt- gives me the chills just thinking about it.
I'm so happy that I got the black cowl neck dress- I found about 233,257,889 ways to wear it. A while ago I bought some AA tights in bright fire-engine red and haven't worn them yet, because of both the searing hot weather and the lack of my clothes that would match them, but I can totally put it with this, as well as all of the other tights that I bought.
My recent Urban Outfitters skirt epiphany (yes, I've mentioned it too many times) has taught me how much I love high-waisted skirts. That's why I bought the two tulip skirts. I get excited just thinking about the navy skirt (you know what, OR the purple. I'll be bold.) with the pink socks! I love the knee sock look now...
And don't get me started on the leather leggings. I'm just too thrilled.
p.s. My apologies if my shopping rants don't interest you.
