Oh hallelujah! Houston got the memo and now is just showing off with temps getting in the 50s tonight! And perfect timing because I have a fun post for you today- something a little out of my comfort zone, but worth giving a try – faux leather leggings. But not just any faux leather leggings, these are by Spanx and we all know how I’m a fan of those!
A couple years ago, I went to a girls’ sushi dinner and one of my very stylish friends, Angela, wore faux leather leggings with a long tee shirt, cool accessories and looked fab. That outfit stood out in my mind and I even created a collage look but never bit the bullet to try them for myself until I was gifted a pair of Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. #thankyou!
So, let’s talk about these faux leather leggings. First things first- fit. At first I didn’t think I’d be able to even get them all the way on, and worried I should’ve ordered size Medium instead of Small. They weren’t quite as hard to get on as my regular undergarment Spanx, but still a bit of an effort to pull them up over your hips. But, once I got them on, they felt perfect! Not too tight at all. Maybe XS would actually hold me in even better, but I’m happy with how the Small fit.
While I was out wearing them, I didn’t feel them pinching or pulling and they were easy to forget you’re wearing! The Spanx part does make you feel quite secure though. Nice to camouflage any lumps and bumps you might feel self conscious about.
Another black sweater that caught my eye is the layered look sweater that gives the illusion of a button-down underneath, without the bulk of an additional shirt. The white part at the bottom is all there is.
