American Apparel Leggings

Before diving into my infant legging spiel, I must tell you that Groupon is doing $25 for $50 worth of merchandise at American Apparel today. What’s that you say? Need to know what you should buy there? Oh! Let me tell you!

So. I am all about little leggings for Wita, but have had the hardest time finding pairs that are:

1. Good colors

2. Solid (as in NO PATTERNS)

3. Without trims involving lace, bows, teddy bears or some shit

Hello, American Apparel! Check out these perfect little numbers.

That’s right. Cute and simple leggings. End of story. (Buy them.)

No kids? Oh well, let me introduce you to this little ditty.

Chambray shirt dress! Although, seriously, WHO OVER THE AGE OF THIRTY IS GOING TO WEAR THIS AS A DRESS??? The thought of me picking Wito up from school in this getup (especially the sheer socks and pumps!) makes me convulse with laughter. And fear. But! Pair this shirt with the Gap skinny cords and some cute ballet flats, annnnd we’ve got a winner.

So, let’s do the math. Buy the Groupon for $25 which gives you $50 bucks at AA and purchase the shirt for $62. So, you are really only paying $37 total for the shirt! (OR 4 pairs of leggings for the price of 2!) Good God, am I a mathematician or what??

(Please prepare yourself for a I Think I’m in Love onslaught over the next month. Holiday shopping gets me in a tizzy.)

    The shirt dress looks like a night gown without pants underneath. AND, it reminds me of a blouse that I ordered from BR that has mysteriously never arrived. Must have.

    MUST HAVE those baby leggings. Somehow I ended up with a pair of leggings for the baby with owls, squirrels AND acorns on them.

    I don’t know either.

    Just saw this deal; can’t pass it up.

    Um, yeah that would definitely stand out in the suburbian land of sweatpants that I live in:).

    some of my favorites. we did them w/onsies from there as pjs-still do b/c they last for ever! i also love the target brand when they don’t add adornment-they wash up the best! circo i think.

    I will say – I did purchase a pair of AA leggings for my daughter a month back but I L.O.V.E. love Gap Kids leggings because of the reinforced knees.

    What about picking Wito up wearing the outfit pictured AND doing the poses pictured!? That’s the funniest part! Who stands like that??

    That shirt dress would look cute over a bikini here on Maui! And I’d love those kid leggings for my little wahine.

    Thanks for the heads up on the groupon deal!

    Unfortunately i don’t like American apparel leggings-I bought a couple of pairs- they stretched out in the knees but shrunk in length :( Gap legging are awsome!! I’ve had some pairs go thru 2 kids in HEAVY rotation and they still look good!

    I would not use that dress-shirt in public. Maybe I would do it at the beach.
