Comment on In Praise of Jeggings. No, really. by Jeannine.

I love jeggings as a more stylish alternative to wear under long, tunic-like tops. When you wear regular leggings under those tops, you get the vaguely uncomfortable “I forgot my pants” look, and wearing straight-leg jeans somehow doesn’t give the right silhouette (my butt refuses to fit into skinny jeans of any size, but I realize this is not the case with others…)

In any case, I’m for them, in certain situations.

Why Dressing Up Is Not a Crime of Fashion
I think people assume that skirts are unwearable in winter, & I get comments all the time asking if I’m cold, but you’re right — thick tights & tall boots can be warmer than jeans, especially if the jeans are made of thin material, or are “fashionably” ripped.

Why Dressing Up Is Not a Crime of Fashion
This often happens to me, not only when I dress less casually, but also, strangely, when I change the makeup I’m usually wearing. Red lipstick instead of my usually coral? Different eyeshadow? Different blush? I must have a “hot date” or “party” to go to after work! Even worse if I happen to wear fun, new makeup and a skirt on the same day.

I love that silhouette. Very classy. I also like the cutout on the back (easier to see when you follow the link). All you need are a pair of green shoes, and you’re good to go!

Ooo… Very pretty. I almost want to run out to my local fabric store and see if I can re-create it.

I kind of wish there was a poof thingy on both shoulders. Otherwise, it’s a lovely floaty fabric. 🙂
