My next item in this Fix was a pair of luxe leggings. They are by Liverpool and are actually called pants (but trust me, they are leggings!) titled "Kennedy Skinny Pant". But, I can see why they are called pants because the quality is less of a legging and more like a pant. They have faux pockets, a faux zipper...so they look like pants. But the material is a very thick Spandex type as you can tell by the way I'm stretching the material away from my leg in the photo below.
I am crazy in love with these leggings/pants. For years I wore those cheap, thin, cotton leggings that cost about $7.00. Then a few years ago I bought my first pair of black dressy leggings by Worthington from JCPenney. They were such a huge step up I decided never to buy the cheap kind again. I loved how I could wear those dressy leggings as pants and not to have to worry so much about them being immodest. But these leggings, are even so much better than my Worthington pair. They are thicker, stronger, and the faux zipper/pockets make them look like I'm wearing skinny jeans, not leggings. They also have a very high rise, which is a great attribute for Spandex leggings, for it sucks in my tummy tight! I can not say enough about the quality of these leggings! They come with a hefty price tag of $78 but, they are so worth it! The color of leggings I'm wearing is called "Eggplant" which is a perfect fall/winter color. It's darker than a burgundy, but it offers more color than black, grey, brown, or blue. I really love this color.
I carried a black handbag from Liz Claiborne (old) to coordinate with the black sweater.
For footwear, I chose grey suede booties to "brighten" the outfit a bit since every other item I'm wearing was dark.
So what do you think? Did I make the right decision to send the sweater back and keep the leggings? What would you have done? I'd love to hear from you!
I received 5 items: 2 tops, 2 sweaters, and a pair of leggings. I kept one top and one pair of leggings.
Skies Are Blue "Finnie Tie Neck Peasant Top":
Leo & Nicole "Jaelynn Cotton Blend Ribbed Open Cardigan
Daniel Rainn "Koda Split Neck Blouse"
Status: Returned (but I kinda wish I kept)
Overall, I thought this was another great Fix for me. There was only one item I really did not like at all (the striped cardigan). I loved the floral top, I only sent it back because I have too many dark floral tops in my closet already. The striped cowl neck sweater was super cozy, but gosh, I hate the way stripes look on me! The peasant top was the best item in the Fix: such an original piece! And the leggings are top quality, I would love more in different colors!
