Fashion is important to a woman from a young age, but while we are more prone to experimenting with our looks when we are young, with age comes experience and knowledge of what body shape you have,
Not that it is easy to find a good pair of leggings. I went to the usual haunts of H&M, Topshop, Zara-no luck, and I mean NO luck. I saw some cool looking ones at Selfridges by Les Chiffoniers but the prices started at £230. Come on!!! And then I stumbled into Uniqlo. And for under £30 I found them-a grey pair and a black pair with the lace edge. They are easy, comfortably soft and make me feel good. I also, thanks to a friend of mine who is a stylist, have a ‘going out’ pair of Noir leggings. They were much pricier-I still feel guilty thinking about it!!-but they are very hard to resist-black, stretchy, kind of looking like jodhpurs and very cool. They pull a look together very effortlessly and make me feel like a womanly girl.
One last thought-I recently saw Victoria Beckham wearing a pair of her own design, with the zippers at the back. Now, where can I find a pair like that, at a fraction of a price? If you know, let me know….
