Leggings....now at ME & Blue.
Back in the late '80's, I discovered leggings (yes, that's me in 1987 -- on the right. In the leggings and bubble skirt and crazy thrift store hat...on the left, my friend Debbie wore the bike short --- a variation of the leggings). I'm talking the leggings that I found at the 'Units' stores, the 'Multiples' stores, and the ones that I made by cutting off the feet of old hose. I was so into the trend that one semester I was introduced to a guy who had seen me around campus and said..."You're the girl who always wears leggings outside of the Communications Building." This wasn't a compliment. I was obsessed. And then the trend died. And then the trend came back a few years ago. My rule is to move forward, don't repeat the past, and feel good along the way. Fast forward. 2009 - the new ME & Blue in Venice, CA. I'm designing my own line, and my customers are asking me, "What do I wear under these fun sheer tops & dresses?" Uhhh. Leggings. Now available at ME & Blue. Made in the USA. Seamless, flattering and only $30. I'll never wear them, but my customers who didn't abuse the trend back in the day will. I'll gladly outfit them!
