In really liking the ones in the shops atm, but im a bit scared of looking like dorian from birds of a feather.

Worth buying or not?

Down thread I made a joke about not wearing my leathers with a blazer and blouse in homage to the Cilla pic. Betsy then said 'unless you plan to reunite long lost family memers' - tickled me!

Amber huh?

Am bored witless in hospital and planning to reunite long lost family members has given me one of my few genuine lolz of the day.

Ill try a few on first, the pic of posh makes her thighs look chunky, so ill see.

I was thinking of teaming them with my new biker boots

and slouchy jumpers, hardly ever go anywhere in an evening anyway,

I agree def daytime

MrsCampbellBlack Mon 30-Sep-13 16:10:23

I bought some last year and haven't worn them much to be honest. I prefer them for day rather than going out - ideally with cashmere jumper - the type the white co do.

Not massively dorian but its a fine line.

unles you plan to reunite long lost family members

AmberNectarine Mon 30-Sep-13 15:22:47

Shit better not wear them with my longline blazer and polka dot blouse...

they are just SO SO

I have a lovely pair from Freda at Matches. They are really lovely soft, thin leather and feel great to wear. They are more like skinny jeans than leggings and are a slightly looser fit on the leg. I am 28 so hopefully not quite into mutton territory yet. I wear them with plain tops (i.e Grey marl tee or tight fitting long sleeved v neck) and spiky heels for nights out. May try the chunky knit look for day, though footwear has me a bit stumped as most of my winter boots are black leather...

noddyholder Mon 30-Sep-13 15:12:15

I would look hideous in them! Plus i think they are already over (sorry) In winter a well worn pair of fryes or forget it they will look like jane mcdonald with most other things. Having said that my mate wears a v old pair with plimsolls and somehow looks good on her

BetsyBidwell Mon 30-Sep-13 15:09:11

but they always do that with trousers - show them with bare feet which is only practical for about 2 months of the year....
