Leggings and Colors and Tights, Oh my!

Reblogging this from one of the blogs I follow, What I Wore.

For the month of February We Love Colors is giving all What I Wore readers a 10% discount on their fabulous 80 denier nylon/lyrca tights and leggings plus free standard shipping in the US using code “WHATIWORE”

Free shipping! Say no more. I definitely plan to order a couple pairs of tights. Jessica of What I Wore said she's never snagged a pair! That would rock.

I'd Try That: Collars

Saw this post on WishWishWish and it introduced me to something I've never thought of in the way they are shown here: collars. I think they would be fun to spice up a plain t or simple dress. I will be on the lookout for one or maybe attempt to make my own. I found a couple tutorials if you're DIY inclined.

Red Lips

I've always thought my lips were too big to accentuate them even further with red lipstick. The only time in recent memory I can remember trying the look was for Halloween a few years ago, but seeing a high school friend of mine via her blog rock the look has totally inspired me. We have similar skin tones and it looks amazing on her. She's such a beauty though. Anyway, I've read NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella is the way to go. I will have to head to Sephora and test it out.

I'd Wear That: Funky Chic

A look from one of my favorite blogs, Orchid Grey.
I really like the mix of patterns between the skirt and the scarf.
Her hair is fab too!

Thinking about getting a pair of these before my upcoming trips to SF. Reviews say they're comfy and cute. I can also feel good about buying them because TOMS is an awesome company.

Their movement:

One for One

TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.

Scar-Jo rockin' the black canvas TOMS. I would pair mine with a much cuter outfit though. Sorry SJ!

Celeb Girl Crush: Zoe Saldana

She just keeps getting prettier. I think her appeal to me stems from my being able to identify with her look. A somewhat unconventional, brown-skinned Hollywood beauty. In her words, "Look at me. I'm skinny, I have a big nose, no tits and no ass, but in a room full of beautiful women, I would still leave with the most gorgeous guy." She insists confidence is the key to her sex appeal.

I love her hair in the above pic from the red carpet at the 2010 Golden Globes. Credit.

Currently Coveting: Stripes

The above is my favorite outfit right now. Want. Credit.

I love this. I own a similar striped shirt and shorts I could make work in this outfit. Credit.
