Luck can be good OR bad....call me crazy but I prefer good! And does that positivity automatically make one, lucky? According to some studies, luck can be skewed in your favour based on your month of birth or easy to pronounce last name (That leaves me out)! And did you know, the European Research Council gave a biochemist 1.7 million dollars to study serendipity in science? That's possibly some fabulous luck right there! I'm usually just happy if my fitted sheets stay on my bed after a hard nights sleep! Possibly I should wish bigger? But starting from the bottom up, let's look at some ways to co-ordinate your lucky leggings.

Leggings! Sort of the pop tart of the wardrobe. They're comfortable, look nice and easy to grab and go.  A super simple pulled together look for the cooler evenings that approach, is the hooded pullover, together with the patterned leggings, adds a little bit of something different to the usual grab and go of jeans.

While we are more compelled to save our leggings for working out, doing yard work or snoozing; with a few slight additions they can be camouflaged into a bit more of an upscale look. These two prints can work so well. Similar lined patterns that produce a creative yet symmetrical look. The kimono has a bit more colour to draw in other accessories such as jewellery or even an infinity scarf.  Worn with a long t shirt or turtleneck and belted and knee high boots, distracts from the casual vibe of the leggings.

While, the mixed prints trend has been around for a few years, it remains one of my favourites to play with. Recently I received a compliment from 'the boss' for marrying a plaid jacket with a rose scarf. If that's not luck I'm not sure what is! It worked by (as above) pulling in one common colour, and two diametrically apposing patterns.

Leggings are great as a bottom coordinate, as a fashion extra or under something for added warmth. And on that note, I'm cold just looking at her bare, lovely legs. I wear them under dresses, maxi and dress/tunic length all season long. And I find it maximizes my wardrobe choices when I cycle as I don't have to be concerned with over exposure, nor am I limited to pants only.
 
 
 
If we spend lives wishing and not doing then we possibly enjoy a life of dreaming and not enjoying the experiences that go along with the trying. Because in the experience of try and fail we often uncover something unexpected. A lucky discovery that we didn't know we wished for.

I posted only a segment of what is in store, merely a few ideas of what can work with what, to possibly spark some ideas. The in store staff are absolutely wonderful and inspiring at being able to create looks that work.

What has two legs but can't walk?

25% off...leggings! FOR 4 DAYS - March 29 to April 1st.

The argument continues. Are they pants or leggings? Think of it this way...a shopping cart has four wheels, but it's not a vehicle. And if driven down the middle of Granville Street, would elicit police presence. And, well...leggings worn as pants should also (IMHO)! So, unless you're Olivia Newton John filming Greese and it's 1978 or you're a 14th century military Scotsman heading into battle...me thinkest the leggings shouldst remain as leggings! Albeit an almost essential fashion garment...just they are not so much pants! Let's explore some great ways to wear them.

Love love love this sweet, uncomplicated look. The printed tights provide some interest, while the shirt just provides a basic backdrop to the graphic pattern. The shirt, the kicks and pulled back hair gives it a little retro feel. Add a little cardigan and you'll look like cotton candy wouldn't melt in your mouth!

Brushed print leggings (5 patterns to choose from) - until April 1st $18.75

worn with 'BE COOL' basic white shirt - $55

Totally looks pulled together, even with a mid length t shirt. In fact leggings look great paired this way with the addition of the long open front top creating balance. Keeps it from looking like you're exiting from a gym workout, which, by the way is not only great but admirable! Since style is not so much the goal in that case, this helps refocus the look back to fashion.

Orange full length bamboo legging (6 colours) until April 1st - $27

worn with - Emma's closet open knit cap sleeve top (black or navy) $59

She has the look of an angel that just floated down from the dubious clouds above! The tights are perfect for this beautiful top, providing a subdued backdrop.

Orange capri bamboo legging (5 colours to choose from) until April 1 - $25.50

worn with - M floral tunic top $89

Ah...the old married couple, the tunic and tights....completely inseparable and always get along! Nauseatingly perfect together! So easy to accessorize as well, pulling the focus from either is easy to do by adding pendants or a scarf.

Orange capri bamboo legging (5 colours to choose from) until April 1 - $25.50

worn with - PURE tie sleeve tunic dress (bahama and denim) $119

and - KW ethnic scarf with tassles $39

So if you wear them to your pole dancing class.....they're not pants! If you sometimes fall asleep in bed with them and don't notice....they are not pants! If you've worn them with a jog bra...you probably rock that look..... BUT they're still not pants and finally if you could envision wearing them 'a la Kardashian style' to church with a see through top, they are not pants, they are leggings (and maybe a fashion fail as well)!

And to answer the riddle...what has two legs but can't walk? WELL...IT'S DEFINITELY NOT PANTS!
