When I came back from Thanksgiving break, I had a little present waiting for me in the mail. James Lillis, the designer extraordinaire behind Black Milk, had sent me a pair of wet look leggings and a pair of my favourites, the Sheer Spartans (which I'm wearing above). I was both ecstatic and hesitant to try them on. I was ecstatic because the leggings combined aspects of flashy superhero chic but in a very minimal way, but I was also hesitant because I had just come back from 5 days of feasting on nothing but turkey, mashed potatoes, yams, ham, pies, and cakes. And the leggings were both in a teeny tiny XS. Oh life, you humour me.

Wow you look amazing!! I love those leggings, so sexy and edgy. They really work with the simple outfit - makes them stand out even more. This is so inspiring - minimalistic and so unique.

Well it seems Black Milk has chosen the perfect advertising conduit, I was pretty much convinced as soon as your post loaded. However, after a 15 minute futile attempt to purchase them via blackberry, I will have to wait until I get home!!

those are fierce leggings; i dont know how you can dress like that in boston because when i went it was raining and flipping cold as all hell. i'll be back there in two weeks again anyway haha :P

Great outfit! Love the tights!

love the effect in the first photo! i wonder how you'll look like if you wear these with combat boots...

Wow, are those tights patterned that way or is it diy? That's so creative, you are definitely one of the best fashion bloggers out there.

heya phosphene,
I just stumbled across your blog, and I've gotta say... J'aime ton blog beaucoup! Oh la la!
Your leggings are kick-ass. I would love to get my hands on a pair in cream.. yes cream.. or asphalt grey. I try to stay away from black bc it makes me look thinner..and for a skinny lass like me.. that is a tad annoying. Getting anorexia comments = mood kill. Freakin loooove your look! I actually bookmarked you.. which is a big deal. Lol.


Hey beautiful.... okay, let's take on Gareth Pugh. Send me some drawings and it's on!

those leggings are gorgeous!!

Wow, the leggings are gorrrrrgeous! Congrats on receiving them. You lucky girl. I think you're on to something, sending subtle hints on the contrast leggings. They would be wild! The perfect kind of wild.

neat looking...

wish i knew about this blog while i was still living in Cambridge...
