Daily News reporter bravely walks on St. Mark's Place wearing a pair of jeggings

Over at the Daily News today, reporter Issie Lapowsky wore a pair of denim leggings around town. Then wrote about it. She took them for a spin on St. Mark's Place, but no one apparently tossed FroYo at her or threw up on her shoes boots...the caption to the photo below reads, "A stroll through the East Village in C&C jeans was not an uplifting experience — though it did win some attention."



According to the article, she did, however, successfully wear them to a class at Yoga to the People.

I feel the need to shout "NOT pants!".

Okay these things are ugly, and what's with this short average person getting an article to talk about them.

Just because they are comfortable does not make them outside worthy. I thought it was trashy people that wore this stuff outside anyways.

I am taller and look better than her, and would not ever dress that tacky. I guess its for attention. Sorry there.

monkey is sooo right. Odd. But I love the looks on those dude's faces. They can't believe it either.

oh dear.

and another weirdly apropos verification word for this comment: nympu. as in: "Nympus love to wear jeggings."

what the fuck does her height have to do with anything you creep freak?

Barbara Hanson said...

Yuck. Wouldn't have worn those when I was twenty and had even worse taste than I have now. And by the way, MonkeyButter, I am short and STILL have a killer body. So there, you heightist.

Not sure if these are better or worse than the 'no pants' or the pajama bottom trends...if it's all about comfort or being unable to fit into a normal waistband, I'm going to start wearing my bathrobe and bunny slippers everywhere. You're welcome in advance.

I'm all for comfort, but jeggings don't seem all that comfortable looking to me.

Perhaps I should take a pair for a test run too. Mars Bar Friday?

Goggla said...

Yes! Please linger in the doorway for a few seconds so I can get a clear shot...MB needs some 2010 drama to replace the Pink Shirt Hoo-Ha of '09.

Then afterwards, I'll go see how stretchy jeggings really are by eating three pastrami on ryes at Katz's.

Not a very flattering picture.
