My Latest Obsession: Faux Leather Leggings!!

In my December GlossyBox I received a voucher for the online store The Iconic. Even though it was one of those vouchers where you have to spend over a certain amount to get the discount I still thought it was worth checking out the site as I hadn't heard of it before. 

I'd been loving leggings lately so thought I'd check out what they had on offer. That's when I stumbled upon these babies. I instantly knew I had to have them and a few days later (the site offers free shipping which is pretty quick - esp for those in the Eastern states) they arrived. This site has become one of my faves for online shopping, the free shipping is awesome and they have excellent customer service. When ordering these leggings I decided to order two sizes to make sure I got ones that fit well and when I returned the ones that were too big I got a prompt refund and a personal phone call advising me that my refund had gone through, which I thought was good of them. 

I'd mentioned my little obsession on twitter recently and the lovely Priyanka from TwinxNTraks asked me to do an OOTD. So I thought I'd share with you the outfit I wore last night for my soon to be step-sister Josie's 21st!



Top: Cream Sheer Shirt from Factorie $29.95
Pants: Stella Biker Leggings from The Iconic $54.95
Shoes: Brown Leather Sandals from StyleTread ~$30
Necklace: Forever21 ~$5
Bandeau: Black Lace Factorie $4.95


And here is the makeup I wore on the evening :)


Face: Mix of Covergirl TruBlend and Borjouis Healthy Mix Serum Foundations
Concealer: MAC Studio Finish
Powder: MAC MSF Natural Light/Medium
Bronzer: Nars Laguna
Blush: Matte Brownish-Pink out of my 10-pan Blush Palette from Ebay
Highlight: Revlon Skinlights Liquid Illuminator with Nars Albatross to set
Eyes: NXY Jumbo eye pencil in Milk as a base,
Urban Decay Sin, Toasted and Hustle Eyeshadow,
Face Of Australia HD Liquid Eyeliner,
NYX White Eyeliner pencil on the waterline &
Napoleon Perdis A Whole Lotta Lashes Mascara
Lips: Models Prefer Ultra Lip Gloss Pencil in Nothing To Hide

Another recent obsession of mine is the Model's Prefer Ultra Lip Gloss Pencils. I got my first when I became a Priceline Sister Club and have since bought two more. Look out for a review on these coming soon!

Would you guys wear Leather pants/leggings??

Hope you had a great weekend!

I like your necklace. It's a great way to decorate that shirt.

Hannah said...

Aww thanks Candice!! xo

Hannah said...

@Girlie Blogger Thankyou xo Yeah I love how the black on it ties in with the pants :)

Vita said...

Ummm...I'm a bit too body-conscious (and middle-aged dammit!) to wear the leather-look leggings but I'd love that necklace!

Hannah said...

Aw I dunno, I reckon you could rock them! My legs are probably my least favourite feature but I find these slim them down a bit. Yeah I love the necklace! Got it from Forever 21 a few months ago so its probably not on there anymore :( but they have heaps of stuff similar!

I myslef have been searching for a great pair of faux leather leggings!! These look great :) so are these comfortable? Do they run true to size?

Hannah said...

Thanks Stacey x

@Anonymous This pair are great, they have panels so they aren't all "leather" They are super super comfy as well. I ordered a 12 and a 14 to try the sizes and 12 fit me like a glove and I'm usually a 12 or a 14 in bottoms so they are quite true to size xo
