238. Lulu Leather?

Although I’m not a fan of Lululemon (mainly because I think their clothing fits small children), I do love their April Fool’s Day spoof about yoga mats and pants is pretty brilliant. Check it:

*Note to self: Show up to my next yoga class in these Club Monaco Tasha Leggings and lay out a bear skinned rug while gnawing on some beef jerky.


221. The Big 3-3

Just wanted to share a few pictures of my fabulous birthday/Valentine pancakes and mimosa (Clinton St. Bakery’s Raspberry Chocolate Chunk with caramel sauce, it’s also Pancake Month) and seriously rich hot chocolate (The City Bakery’s Love Potion Hot Chocolate, it’s Hot Chocolate Festival time). Apparently, New York City makes up for the fact that it’s February by throwing amazing food and drink concoctions at you. It’s okay to drool. In fact, it’s encouraged.



Also, the Gap currently sells yoga pants for children…in case you were wondering. BTW, these were definitely called “leggings” back in 1991 (when I shopped at Gap Kids):


*Note to self: Befriend a child yogi. Ask about any tips he/she might have on how to fit into a child’s size yoga pant.

195. There’s Weather On My Pants!

So, I’m pretty sure that if I had stepped onto my high school campus wearing these storm-themed leggings I’d basically be committing social suicide but apparently they’re all the rage (at Urban Outfitters, at least). I couldn’t help but notice that these epic pants (appropriately called “Cosmic Leggings” by BDG) were paired next to a wooly mammoth coat. You know some 16 year-old is going to take her SAT’s in that outfit and feel better for it. These stretchy thin pants were just one of many pairs covered in random images ranging from wolves to skeletons. All I know is, if I tried the Cosmic leggings on, that lighting strike would appear much larger. But, then again, maybe that’s the point? Regardless, I will not be finding out.

But you know who would benefit from this look? Hipster babies.
