In the frigid winter in New York City, sometimes it is just not realistic to wear a dress or skirt out at night that will expose your bare legs. Sometimes, ladies, we have to wear pants when we go out.
Last Friday night one of my best friends and I decided to head over to the Top of the Standard (The Boom Boom Room), notorious for enforcing strict dress codes. Also notorious for the Solange-Jay Z elevator incident. I decided to wear my new (fabulous!) 7 For All Mankind leopard skinny jeans, paired with a black pleated flowy blouse, a statement necklace, and my favorite Kate Spade nude pumps. I am a sucker for leopard print, and when I tried these jeans on it was sort of a joke. As it turns out, they are super comfortable, versatile (dress them up dress them down) and they are a statement piece in their own right. Every time I wear these jeans out, I get a lot of complements on them. Surprisingly, they elongate your legs, too, especially when paired with a great pair of stilettos.
