On nights like last night, smiling with friends and gallivanting around town, there is nothing better than a comfy pair of leggings to run around in...but even better than that, is a gorgeous piece of art, printed onto a pair of leggings like the ones from Black Milk. These Purple Galaxy leggings are a picture from a NASA satellite of a galaxy far, far away....Simply magical.... :)
Black Milk and its creator James Lillis, are a truly wonderful and unique company. Every pair of tights, leggings and dresses are made to order and just for you with loving care and creativity. The fact that the quality of the imagery as well as the construction of the clothes is so perfectly and carefully created makes them really seem like they are a couture piece of clothing, something no one else will have ever seen before. And while walking around Toronto, the looks, smiles and compliments I got while wearing my leggings did indeed reaffirm this idea. It's nice to be wearing something that amazes and that no one has ever seen before, or perhaps even thought of before. Igniting imagination and inspiration is such a wonderful part of fashion. I was totally inspired by the colours and textures in this image and went right to my work station and started creating a star themed collage.
I really did feel like I was walking around on a galaxy of star and comets swirling around my legs. I almost felt as if I could fly away! These leggingss are so amazingly detailed and the pattern/image is so powerful that pairing it with anything but a plain black top seemed like the wrong thing to do. But for me, plain isn't something I do very often so I was kinda hesitant about the whole thing. I tried pairing it with another skirt but it just seemed too busy... So, I threw on a simple long black tank top and a few silver and white accessories and in the end, I really felt that it didn't feel plain at all. It was the most comfortable thing and such a simple outfit but one that was awesomely magical. I thought my halo headband I made was a great combo with this outfit since it really exemplified that out of this world, ethereal feeling. And when you're feeling down or just feeling like you need a change (which is totally my mind set right now) there isn't anything better than escapism and if you can do that through your fashion, you are a lucky little girl. It's like living out those fairy tale ideas of magic, flight and wishing upon a star that we all dreamed of...once upon a time.
To anyone interested in buying tights, dresses or anything else from Balck Milk, let me tell you, if you think $75 is too much to spend on tights take these comments into considerations. The piece you're buying so made just for you, not from a line of millions of other tights. It is an almost one of a kind pieces, since every pair is printed on the fabric and the colours may change slihtly so every pair is just that tiny bit different. The imagery in the tights is impeccable, so detailed and incredibly coloured. It does feel like wearing art on your legs. The quality of the tights is amazing and they are sooooo comfortable. This will be a piece of clothing you wear over and over again and which you'll love to wear since it will be something that you really will feel like no on else can rock or has ever even seen before. Totally worth the price tag and more!
