I’m convinced that when the Color Gods were formulating colors I came to mind when they made chartreuse. Nothing or no one can stop me from believing that
fact! When I saw the Louboutin Pigalle 120 in chartreuse my heart fluttered in delight but then reality hit. It’s no secret that I can’t fit designer shoes (I wear an 11 and their 11s fit more like a 9.5) but on top of that I fail at walking in platform-less shoes. So, I erased the shoes out of my memory or tried. But then people, ShoeMint decided to make their own chartreuse, patent leather, 4.25 inch pump that just so happened to have no damn platform. So, I ordered them… judge all you want but I figured it’s best to have an $80 dollar shoes that you can’t walk in than a $700 dollar shoes that you can’t walk in. They arrived and were nothing short of perfect and to top it off there weren’t as uncomfortable as I thought they’d be. Winning.
I got these leggings from ASOS over a month ago and I’ve already worn them three times. They’re perfect… well, somewhat. One thing I expect when buying pants that aren’t made of a thick/heavy fabric is some wicking (those little lint balls that form of knit garments after some time) and maybe a little thinning of the material. Upon my initial inspection I noted that the sequins were attached with very delicate threads which made me question the durability. Sure enough the first time I wore them there was a trail of sequins behind me because of my thighs rubbing. I expected that so it was no biggie. However, the second time I wore them I did a ton of walking and the sequins ended up tearing into the fabric on the opposite thigh, leaving a hole. I was disappointed that there was a hole in my new $60 dollar leggings but I became pissed when the sequins scratched at my inner thigh leaving broken skin. It was like chub-rub times 10. Don’t get me wrong I still love the leggings, obviously because I’m wearing them for a third time but I do feel that ASOS could do a bit better with the construction next time.
This look is pretty basic but I did want to show what the leggings looked like on since I received a few emails about them. I also wanted to show off my new, amazing shoes. There’s no crime in that right?
