Hey family!!!! I’m back. I had a wonderful whirlwind adventure this weekend taking in all D.C. had to offer for Inauguration!!! Though I was unable to capture Peacock quality photos of the madness, I can wrap it up by simply saying bottomless Mimosas, motion sickness intensified by food poisoning, Hookah, seeing Barack Obama sworn in for a second term, pulling a “It Happened One Night” move to catch a cab and a Biz Markie- DJ’d West Wing Inaugural Ball. And though I was without internet access during this time, and forced to neglect you, I must say overall, it was a great four days.
To announce my return, here is the newest installment to Season 3 of “Style Pointers.” In this episode, Princess divulges her opinion on the untold rules of wearing leggings as pants.
ed. note. I am a woman with a really round, full booty. I love my butt. My grandmother says I came out of the womb with a butt, and I am compelled to agree. When I was a little girl, I hated wearing jeans because they were uncomfortable on my booty toot. God Bless my mother because I had every single color pair of “Stretchy Pants” (what I affectionately called them) and still have a love for them to this moment.
With that said, I do not fully agree with the tips of my opinionated friend. Personally, leggings were made with booty in mind. I am not ashamed of my booty, and wear it proudly like a badge of honor. So to put it plainly, yes, I am one of those women that wear short crop tops, sweaters, jackets, etc… with my leggings. I have a far larger gripe with the transparency of some leggings versus covering your butt in them. Take a moment and thoroughly examine your leggings. If you can see through them, then you really should have on a longer top to avoid being able to see your undergarments. Or you can do like me and double up. Doubling up leggings is a great idea if you have a little cellulite (if you have a little junk in the trunk, chances are you have or had). NO BIG DEAL!!! Double up your leggings to provide more coverage (no see-through situations), support your lower body (acts like Body Armour/Spanx), and you still look great because your body looks smooth. And ladies please be advised: leggings and tights are not the synonymous. Tights are a thicker or textured version of panythose and not to be worn alone. Leggings are specifically designed to be worn as pants.
