I’m going through a major rocker chic phase in my casual wear right now (which will all end abruptly when the D.C. humidity begins to rear it’s ugly head). It’s a direct result of two items I purchased over the winter holidays: My Rich & Skinny Wax-Coated Jeggings and my Ash Virgin Leather Sneakers. These two items have taken over my wardrobe and everything is styled around them. There’s been a lot outfits like this:
Denim: Rich & Skinny Wax Coated Legacy Jeggings / Ash Virgin Sneakers / Michael Kors Runway Watch / Le Chateau Ring / AE Favorite T (similar here) / J.Crew Keeper Chambray / Talula by Aritizia Exeter Blazer / Rayban Aviators
My observant readers might notice that I lost a button on my blazer half way through my photo shoot. =/
I get a lot of stares when wear these two items together. Actually, the shoes themselves generate a lot of attention (a completely unexpected reaction when I purchased them). But worn with these jeggings, I get a lot of “looks”. I’m not sure if it’s “WTH IS SHE WEARING?!” or “Damn, that’s cool.” I’d like to believe that it’s the latter, but I don’t really know, nor do I really care. I just feel totally bad a$$.
Have you ever purchased an item that was a total “game-changer”–an item that completely affected your style (for good or bad) or found yourself constantly planning all your outfits around it? I’d love to hear about it!
