gap attack

I was just looking at Gap's website when I came across these---
Ov vey!
I do remember when these were cool, and yes, I wore them...in sixth grade! That was what, 1992? Somewhere around there? I had this fabulous pair (so I thought!) from Limited Too. They were bright pinks, blues, oranges, purples, PAISLEY! With them, I wore an oversized silk button-down mens-style shirt. I thought I was SO cool.
I'm pretty sure I wasn't.
(I wonder if there is a photo of me somewhere, in this outfit...I should look for one!)
Anyway, I am not sure how I feel about stirrups making a comeback.
What do you think? Would you wear these?
PS. Speaking of the Gap, one of my favorite girls, Heidi, is giving away a pair of Gap jeans, and no, not these leggings :) Head over and check it out, and tell her that I sent you! Also, stick around and read her blog. She's fabulous, and I wish she'd move back to DC ;)

Oh goodness me - I remember them and did we think we looked cool? Leggins have never and will never be a good look unless you are playing the prince in pantomime, which I did for my sins. But if you have to wear them 'Black is the way forward'.
Have a great weekend
