In today's vlog, I'm highlighting my favourite purchases from my recent trip to New York Just a couple of notes:
- My enthusiasm about the "Holy Grail of denim leggings" and "the perfect Thanksgiving pants" may have eclipsed my attempts at being articulate. The "bulge" I talk about is that annoying bulge that a zip fly creates over your abdomen when you wear longer tops that cover your skinny jeans.
- As much as I love how the drawstring waist on the Uniqlo denim leggings feels, I hate the way it looks. These leggings can be worn as pants, but only with longer tops or tunics that cover the waist.
- The video compression may have obscured the leggings and made them look a lot darker. For a better look, here they are on the Uniqlo website. They're $19.90 US.
- I have a pet theory based on the Pythagorean theorem that the heel height (a^2) a woman can tolerate is based on the length of her foot (c^2, or the hypotenuse). Since I have small size 6 feet, in my experience I can't do heels more than 3" high, and even then the sole needs to have some sort of platform. Hence my remarks about the Prada heels being an engineering miracle.
