Is it Chic or just plain Cheap?

by Migdalia Rivera

I recently came across these leggings in Bloomingdale’s Book, under the Hot buys section.

The first set of leggings is from Bloomingdale’s, with a retail value of $118.


I found a similar set of leggings on Amazon. The second set has a retail value of $19.98. Note, I wasn’t able to capture the picture of the gold or black color leggings but you can view them on the site by clicking on the link under the picture.

What do you think? Does it look Chic or just plain Cheap? Is this a fashion hot buy as Bloomingdale’s stated? Let’s hear your thoughts!

You gotta be able to wear it…

@ Yoly: It’s true, you can’t hide anything in those colors! But I have to admit I still think they look cheap and feel that Bloomingdales was wrong about this “Hot” buy.

The $118 leggings are made better. The $19.98 pair wrinkle and gather. That being said, they both look cheap…not in the financial sense but trashy. LOL

I agree with u all.. You have to be “able” to wear, meaning no fat on the legs..LOL Not for me..definitely..lol Anyway, I hate leggings..it reminds me of when I was still carrying the extra fat after I had my son and my jeans weren’t fitting me.. I felt fat and all around awful!!

@ Lisa: In those pants you couldn’t have anything with fiber! You’ll bloat and everyone would see LOL

I could not pull these off. To wear something like this you need to feel super super confident. Good luck to those who can.

Cheap. Colors are awful and the materials don’t look great either!
