Trend of the Year - 2009

Popsugar reported today that the trend of the year was Leggings and I must say I completely agree!

They said, "Leggings have been around for a while, but in 2009, they made a mad comeback. Face it: everywhere you turned, limbs were dolled up in leggings. Some basic, a few crazy, many cropped, lots of long. Jeggins even had their own cult following and outshone regular denim. Catwalks, streets, malls, and boutiques all embraced the comfy chic trend. Long live the legging!

I've considered selling the new Free People Jegging coming out early spring....but will you pay $68 for a pair?

A tuck in the back that rests in the small of your back allows for a most flattering look. Even the stars like this one, just ask Halle Berry and Ashley Tisdale who were spotted wearing it! $98

And prepare to be noticed with this sheer slip in sequined mesh with brightly colored adjustable straps and a low scooped back. Take any outfit to the next level by slipping it over a strapless dress or putting a colored bandeau beneath and wearing with leggings. $68

Me and Louise are at our last show of the season, Bizarre Bazaar. So far so good, 2 days down and 3 to to go. We've got a great sell rack that is quickly dwindling and I'm getting a Free People shipment that should arrive at the show on Sunday.

On a side note we ate a Noodles after the show tonight and man was it good. =)
