As the perspiration glistens on my skin while commuting downtown only to be greeted by indoor temperatures equivalent to those of the Arctic, I dream of fall. Because I hate summer. Yeah, I said it. Hate may seem like a strong word even though there are a few things I enjoy about summer – al fresco dining, the giddiness on the faces of city dwellers, street festivals. But none of those things make up for 90+ temps, not knowing how to dress appropriately for work and the ubiquity of flip flops.
I dream of layers, boots, hats, scarves, darker, richer colors. So as I dream, like a lot of you, I surf. No, I do not surf the waves, I surf all of my favorite fashion sites for fall clothes that inspire me whether I can afford or fit them or not. During one of these dreams, I came across a fall item of clothing that made me calculate how many meals I would need to miss to squeeeeeeze myself into it and if selling my eggs was actually a viable option.
That dreamy item of clothing is the Victoria Beckham midrise leather legging. It is perfection. It gives you the comfort and easy wear of a legging while stepping it up several notches in luxury and kickassery. And unlike other leather leggings that tend to be on the low rise side, the rise in these bad girls is high enough to be easily worn by those over 20 with several cans short of a six pack.
And since I’m dreaming, I thought of ALL the ways I would wear ‘em. A debauchee can dream can’t she?
