Proof that patience pays off in the end when it comes to shopping trends - I had been lusting over the leather legging trend for a while now--since winter, actually, when they're actually more practical--but could never dream of affording real leather pants. I wrote about resin-coated denim as a great alternative, and bought a great pair by James Jeans which I need to have hemmed before they can debut on PSS. But then I spotted these liquid leggings on Victoria's Secret website, and for $42 they are such a great alternative to genuine leather. And vegan friendly, if that's your thing.
The only downside? They're HOT in 100°+ temperatures! I just had to pair them with this gauze-y tunic I've had for a while now...so admittedly, I changed right out of them the minute this outfit shoot was over. They were great all day before that, though, indoors! :)
I finally bought myself a fringe necklace by Leilanni Land. Totally a statement, and totally got me some attention both entering and exiting the Eclipse movie (which, by the way, was full of jaw-jutting, and moody, sullen stares - I loved the books but KStew is just a terrible, terrible actress!).
One of my new favorite lipstick purchases (shall I do a favorite lipstick roundup post? let me know in the comments!) is L'Oreal's British Red. It has hints of blue in it which makes teeth look whiter, a must for any red lipstick, on any skin tone in my opinion!
I tucked my leggings into my booties for a seamless look. Who needs thigh-high boots??
Here's a fun little video of the shoot, I hope you like it! Should I keep doing these for outfit posts? Let me know in the comments section! Music: Frou Frou - Shhh
And, just for Pretty Shiny Sparkly readers, since I loved my necklace purchase so much, Leilanni Land is extending a $5 off offer code "PRETTYSHINY" - just enter it at checkout and the $5 discount will be refunded to you after the purchase. How sweet it is!
