Snag it! Demetria Legwarmers in grey

I'm not sure about anywhere else in the world, but the weather here in NYC has been wack. Two weeks ago we had 60 degree weather, and the next day it snowed. Yesterday, too, was BEAUTIFUL, and then today was chilly. Why, God, why?!

As winter refuses to go away completely, I'm releasing my last pair of legwarmers for the season, the Demetria legwarmers in 2 tones of grey. Now, usually Demetrias are slouchy, but this pair is more tight-fitting. I ALSO tend to go for brighter colors, but I wear so much black with pops of color, I figured I might as well make something that can match nearly anything. Ergo, I present you with this pair. Check out their listing on etsy, and snag them for yourself!

In related news, the Alexandria legwarmers are in today's showcase! Look at them go!

Snag It! Alexandria Legwarmers in dusty rose

I'm super stoked to present the latest addition to the legwarmer family, the Alexandria legwarmers in dusty pink! A few posts ago I talked about the new colors for spring, and I got so excited about dusty rose that I immediately ordered some yarn in that color. Here's what came of it!

Adette and I were able to sneak outside today and take a few photos, so I'm excited to finally post them on Etsy. She says these legwarmers remind her of strawberry shortcake, and I fully support that description. They fit quite nicely and are oodles of fun to wear. Not to mention they make your lower legs warm and cozy, particularly in this schizophrenic weather!

Check out our Etsy listing for these Alexandria legwarmers, and snag them for yourself!

Swooning Over: Jumpsuits

At first I didn't understand, and then they started cropping up everywhere. The more I saw them, the more the cuter ones started rising to the surface, and now, I see them everywhere. And you know, that's not a bad thing.
Born in the 60s and revived in the 80s, the resurgance of the jumpsuit makes sense, as it seems the latter part of this decade is all about probing the 80s for anything that HASN'T already been milked for all it's worth. It can also be referred to as a playsuits, and there's a version called the catsuit (which is skintight, and I'm still deciding if I'm ok with that).

It takes certain body types to successfully pull off jumpsuits, and I'm comforted by the fact that the likes of Freddie Mercury and Goldfrapp have donned them. A few weeks ago I hung out with Lani, the co-author of Sugar Rock Catwalk, a fashion/style/cool-stuff blog, and she, too, was wearing one, giving me faith that normal people can wear them with confidence, too! And hey, with affordable options like those from I'm Your Present, I'm hoping a jumpsuit is in my near future.

The images above are from all over the internet, adding to my conviction that these things are two seconds away from blowing up (the fact that Lani was already wearing one proves she's a psychic). Here's a guide to those pics:
