~SATURDAY MUSINGS ABOUT TIGHTS~
I’m wearing tights around my house all day today in hopes that, by the end, I like them. Which I currently don’t.
Apparently, I have a predisposed aversion to black tights because my “collection” includes two pairs of brown, one red, one white, one grey (currently wearing) and two pairs of not-public-appropriate thigh-highs in stripe and fishnet. Do I hate myself?
So far, I can say that tights are just more-annoying-to-put-on leggings. I am a fan of leggings, so this holds promise.
Plus, I’ve eaten like 150 cupcakes in the last 48 hours and control top feels like a big, constant hug.
Earlier today, I made a
mistake choice to get challenged: I offered to be a personal shopper.
Yeah, I retweet myself - no shame.
What can I say? I love shopping, and more than that - I love shopping for other people. Ask Jen! We go out and I completely forget that I’m wearing clothes at all and would perhaps enjoy to own some more… Instead I wander the aisle screaming “JEN! THIS? YES? NO? YES? YES! OK.” And friends, I want to scream across the proverbial store at you, too. Pretty soon after posting, I had the darling Jaime of Denim Debutante (and mastermind behind Debutante Media) clarifying my terms. What a profesh. Eventually, I had my task:
Done and done.
Alejandra Sky Rhoda Leggings: $22.50
These are 94% modal and 6% spandex - the most modal-y leggings you’re going to find under $50 (these are 50% off, too)! They’re available in a basic black, or basic grey.
That’s a long product name, but I like the words in it! These are 86% micromodal, 10% silk, and 4% Lycra. I’m big fan of high-waist leggings like these - so much more comfortable, and so much less adjusting. These also come in ivory.
If you want something a little more intense - check these! Faux leather on the front, 49% modal, 49% cotton, and 2% elastane on the back. Look at you in your edgypants.
These are your best pick, Jaime! Not only are they made by awesome, ethical fashion company, Alternative Apparel - but they’re comprised of 47% modal, 47% pima cotton and 6% spandex. They are available in brown or light-ish grey (concrete).
For the rest of you, a question:
I’m on the hunt for modal/pima/supima cotton leggings for under $50 - wish me luck, and stay tuned for a post!
Oh, and I’m so ready for more requests! If you would like me to post about something you’re searching for with a bunch of less-than-$50 options - let me know! I’m on it.
