Buy-of-the-Week: Side Stripe Legging
What it is: Side Panel Ponte Legging
How much: $79.00 (I bought them online on a day sale, getting them for $39.50)
Why I bought them: When I go shopping for myself, I gravitate towards dresses and skirts. But, it's my casual wear that is looking a bit tired. So, I've been keeping my eyes open for casual wear that is comfy and has personality. Everybody needs a good pair of leggings but, it seems to me, leggings are pretty boring. So, when I saw these, I wanted to give them a try! I bought these leggings in navy and am liking pairing them with classic white Adidas tennies and over-sized sweaters.
The fabric is comfortable. The stripe down the side of the legging is a 1 1/2 inch wide grosgrain ribbon, lifting the look of the legging. I am concerned about the ponte shrinking and the ribbon puckering in the wash, so I will hand-wash these and hang dry them. But, it's worth the extra care for a "fun" pair of leggings. I give them 5 stars!
