pretty + cheap

leggings or a venti skinny vanilla latte?

In the winter, I wear leggings constantly: with my rain boots, my snow boots, my UGG boots… oh and with my Nike sneakers to the gym. Its no surprise that my fave pair is getting a little, shall we say, faded from wear and tear. I’ve had such a hard time finding new ones, though, because prices for leggings at stores like American Apparel or Express, for instance, start at 25 dollars. And to be honest, I wasn’t impressed with the quality of the leggings that I tried on at American Apparel… shhhhh.

All I have to say is thank goodness for Forever 21 because I found a pair of long (but not toooo long) black leggings for $4.50. That’s like, less than the price of a fancy schmantzy Starbucks latte. They’re basic, they keep me warm, they’re the perfect length (I’m 5’4” ish), and because they’re nice and inky black the effect is quite slimming. Love it.

    Um, OK… venti skinny vanilla lattes are my drink, I’m mildly obsessed with leggings, and I’m all of 5’4″. Are you me?!

    Love it. And, p.s., thank you SO much for the sweet comments about Feather;)
