Familia, Randomness

On girl pants (and leggings)

I spent most of the weekend with Lori. We were abandoned by the rest of the family for the holiday weekend (except the grandparents and Danny, but they always do their own thing). On Saturday, her boyfriend came over and grilled some chicken for dinner. The next day, Lori and I went shopping, swimming and then drove over to the Hollywood Bowl for the Death Cab for Cutie, Tegan and Sara and the New Pornographers concert.

On the way to the show, we talked about leggings.

“I like them because I can wear a long blouse or something over them during my ‘fat days’,” Lori said. “And you can still look dressed up enough for a night at the club.”

I nodded. “I just wear them under short skirts.”

“Exactly, they’re supposed to be worn under something, not as pants. Women at the gym do that. You can totally see their chonis. They make it worse too by wearing something white, at least wear black.”

I laughed and agreed that women should ask a friend or family member to do a simple check for the opacity of their leggings.

“You should put out a notice on your blog,” she said.

“I’ll do that.”

We parked at Hollywood and Highland and started the half mile walk up the hill to the Hollywood Bowl. We followed several other concertgoers and kept up our fashion commentary.

I pointed at the couple up ahead, “I think I know what happened. They were probably getting ready for the show and he told her, ‘babe, I don’t have anything to wear tonight.’ I’m pretty sure she offered him her pants.”

“I don’t understand why guys wear such tight pants. They’re not even that comfortable. And this is coming from someone who wears tight pants and doesn’t have the same issue as guys.”

“Yeah, it’s too hot for summer. Denim doesn’t let you breathe.”

“At least they’ll save money on birth control in the long run.”

  1. opacity? I had to look that up! Keep in mind that many of your readers are former ESL students. We dont be knowing what opacity means! 🙂

    Regarding your post: All I have to say is that I am all for ‘legging’, especially legging that involves women showing their chonis.

    But I completely agree with you on the men wearing tight pants thing.

  2. Oh my goodness I was just talking about this the other day! It is getting out of control. While walking to my masters class at Florida International University I saw 10 girls wearing completely sheer leggings with bright thongs underneath and short shirts! Why? Leggings should def be worn under something or with a shirt/dress that covers the butt. And what is with the leggings under short shorts! Tacky 😦
