No Pants Dance Off

February 22, 2010

Go Gorgeous Gal is totally going to disown me!  Yes I know leggings aren’t pants, but sometimes I just don’t care. Faux pas or not, I’m going for it.  My professional boy toy also said I looked like a movie star so I can’t argue with that!  There is a genetic syndrome that runs in my family called Hyper-Excessive-Celebration or “What the HEC?!”  Which is exactly what we said when we decided to take the hubby out for new job celebration #2, see celebration #3 tomorrow.  Like I said, excessive.

A great scholar once told me “Po Po, Po Po Zao.  In Portuguese it means ‘bring ya ass.'”  I really took that to heart.

I think I should have taken a cue from Coco Chanel and lost the headband, which I did seconds after taking these pics.  At least I had the sense to loose it before going out in public.  I think I am biting the bullet on cutting my hair this week if time allows, but look how pretty it is!


I kind of cheated because, unfortunately, I was preparing for a funeral when I made this list.  I bought this blouse at Zara for “dressy all occasion wear.”

Swing Coat: Jasmin Sola

    I love this outfit!! Leggings aren’t pants… but they’re totally fine when you’re not wearing with a hoodie/north face jacket and uggs…… That’s like the college wear of the year…. 🙂 But you totally rocked this! Your hair is gorgeous by the way!

    congrats to your hubby on his new job! perfect reason to celebrate multiple times! This outfit is really cute, and yeah…yeah…legging aren’t pants, but I think when they have texture (velvet) or a bit of shine to them, like these do, they are very wearable.

      Thanks Jenn, You put it perfectly! I think texture does make a difference in deciding if leggings are pants or not.

    Leggings as pants: totally okay
    Tights as pants: totally wrong

    I have to agree with Ra
    leggings are totally pants, especially those leggings you are wearing in these pic’s. I wear my American Apparel ones that are just like yours all the time with shorter tops an T’s and have had no complaints.
    I think the complaining about the ”leggings an pants” thing was started by people that couldnt pull it off and are jealous 😉 These people annoy me!
    Your amazing legs in those shiny leggings make this outfit the sexiest Ive seen in your blog and I hope you keep wearing em this way and posting.
