Ok, I must go back and correct something. Although I am more than happy that the mod look is making an appearance, I must declare my opinion on leggings. Leggings are a great great thing. They provide you with comfort and security knowing that you can wear a short skirt and not have to worry about bending over or perhaps something else (semi NSFW). They also keep your legs warm, much warmer than plain old panty hose. And come on, leggings are fun, didn't we all wear them in the 80s? But there is one thing I am strongly against.



Leggings that are lined with lace at the bottom. NO NO NO NO! Please don't fall into this trap. Even though it seems like a "cute" idea now, I am more than positive this treacherous look will be shamed upon in a few months, perhaps weeks. They were never cool in the 80s, and they won't be now.

Try to keep it simple and purposeful. Why not try a nice ankle length cotton legging, like these:


$28 from American Apparel


or if you're short on cash try these:


$4.99 from Target


Remember people, staying classy is key. (I feel really flamboyant saying that!)
Okay, here it goes. First post.

I am going to jump right into things. This blog is an anonymous blog. I will give you some information about myself though, I am an avid shopping addict. Although I don't really have the money to shop, I do go on many websites to check the latest things that spark my eye. I am not expecting to really create a following, in fact, I doubt anyone will find this blog of any interest. It's more of an outlet for my addiction.


So on with it.


I find it interesting that the whole "mod" look is making a reappearance. I remember 3 years ago in New York, H&M was all the rave for Mondrian jumpers (dresses not sweater) and leggings, but it's all coming back again. It seem that this time around it's much more classy looking as opposed to the silly looking. Some things that have hit my eye.

I think I'll just leave it at that. Beautiful, beautiful classy looking jumpers, that will probably end up looking silly within six months.
