We all know of the dream people tend to have about showing up in public without pants on….and while this real-life legging phenomenon isn’t quite full-on, gonna get arrested nudity, it’s getting pretty darn close. I know that people have varying attitudes on this and that my opinion isn’t quite as well respected as that of, say, Dear Abby or Joan Rivers & her fashion police cohorts. After last week’s outing to my new favorite LA watering hole, Sassafras (no sarcasm there) though, I need to put this out into the world….
LEGGINGS ARE JUST A LAYERING PIECE….
I’m not even raising issue with the style of these (I’m pretty sure though that this is not what Vogue had in mind when they said ‘stripes’ are back….hmm did they say that at all???). No, really the issue at hand is if :
a.) this girl asked her friends their opinion of her outfit and they said yes, it’s okay
b.) has she fired her friends yet?
Let’s go back for a minute to when you were in 2nd grade, would your mom have let you wear your favorite white leggings without your skirt over top of them to school? (Note: I use the term ‘favorite’ loosely because it simply means they didn’t itch and have the elastic that has loosened up so much that they fall down to your knees by days end) She let you go out of the house with your frizzy hair and lame puff-painted shirt that you had made on vacation in Daytona Beach—but she wouldn’t let you go sans bottoms…
Think about it.
