Hello!  How is your week going? Have you ever worn Spanx?  I've wanted to talk with you about these faux leather leggings from Spanx for quite some time because I love them so much!  Spanx were created by entrepreneur Sara Blakely.  I saw her in an interview once and have been a fan ever since.  She's a truly inspirational woman (as you can see here, she even includes an inspirational tag on her leggings). Recently, I found out about her faux leather leggings and immediately began searching for these ultimate leggings. When I tried them on, they were everything I was hoping for and more.  I think the reason why I love these leggings so much is because it has this amazing faux leather fabric that smooths out the lumps and bumps and the shaping waistband is built in.  Nice!  The material on these particular leggings are even thick enough to wear as pants, but thin enough to wear under anything.  I loved them so much that I purchased them in both black and wine for the winter season.  It's always nice when clothes work with your body.

What do you think about wearing leggings with shaping capabilities?   


Last year, I was wishing for a blue velvet coat and then shortly after that, I found this embroidered blue velvet coat from Nanette Lepore.  It is so pretty and I love the puffy bell sleeve details. This embroidery is so delicate and goes perfectly with these highly embellished beaded suede boots from Donald J. Pliner.  Statement sleeve details are also a huge trend right now.  

What is your favorite kind of statement sleeve? 

Hope you have a Wonderful Week!

  2. I really like this outfit on you. I've heard of Spanx (who hasn't) and while I liked the idea behind this brand, I'm not sure have I actually seen any of their original products here (I suppose there are available online anyway).

    There are a lot of similar brands, but I think in many ways Spanx was first- and even revolutionary. I think I saw some documentary or show about it, even if I'm not sure have I seen or known about the actual founder- but I'm not surprised that it was a lady. Has she maybe been on Oprah? I seem to remember Oprah talking about Spanx.:)

    Anyway, these leggings seem fabulous. I don't have a pair of faux leather leggings and I just realized what is missing in my closet:):).

    btw I'm a big fan of this trend of statement sleeves. I think it's just gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Ivana. She was on Oprah and I saw her in another interview more recently speaking about these fabulous leggings. I've seen a lot of different types of items online but I agree with you, Spanx is transformational and revolutionary. It's one of the best investments because it can be worn under tunics, tees, dresses, midi skirts, and as pants. Hope you try a pair, they're Awesome:)

  6. Gorgeous outfit, Joanna! And wow! I wouldn't have thought these photos were taken at night. Very cool! I don't own any Spanx, but I do want to try some. And your coat is so stunning! I love it.

    I hope you're having a wonderful week, Joanna!

    1. Thank you Lindsey. It was the last photo of the day and the amber colored street lamp was shining down on us. I haven't tried any other items from Spanx, just the leggings. They would probably even be good for a Catwoman costume for Halloween. If you get them, I'd love to see your post:)

  10. I used to have a pair of these leather-finish leggings and I wore them with EVERYTHING! They are so versatile- and I'm sure the Spanx ones are super flattering! Love your coat, too! I think blue is my favorite color for velvet pieces.

    1. Thank you Laura. If you get the chance, you should try them. This is an older coat, so you may be able to find one for resale online somewhere.
