If I Had You To Myself

I decided to go the more casual route than the first time I posted pics in the amazing James Lillis Cages.  With a love for men’s plaid shirts that runs so deep I could live in them, I threw on my teal checkered button-down over these chained wonders.  Yes, a random combo from a girl who likes to spew randomness.

I’m apologizing in advance that I will be a sucky blogger over the next week in terms of posting anything new but at least this will give me the opportunity to catch up on everyone’s blogs and comments (thanks as always!).  Melly and I are moving into our new pad and I have craploads of stuff to do, a.k.a. this week I will be an insomniac.

Becs and Mel

Here’s a pic from when we went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and the only one I could find with suitcases to illustrate we’ll be on the move.  I told you I was random. 🙂

BTW, the title of this post is B.R.A.M.’s song “If I Had You To Myself.”  I’ve overplayed it so many times that I used up my free listens.  Bummer.

Chains with Benefits

My ridiculously amazing James Lillis Cages arrived!  They are really stunning and fit great.  The chains aren’t too heavy that the leggings are uncomfortable either, which just rounds out my happiness with them.  Did I mention these are also available with silver chains?  Since gold has taken over my daily jewelry wear, I went with the gold chains.  To show off the versatility of these leggings, I styled them in three different ways.  This first look is more of a going out type of outfit.  Yes, I added even more metallic shine with the speckled gold top and studded shoes.

For the second look, I decided to take it down a notch and go for a more casual chic look with the addition of the blazer and my favorite pair of multi-buckle booties.

For the third look, I just wanted to throw in some color a la this jacket and my Topshop studded boots.  Yes, upon first glance, these leggings are way out there, but I plan to throw on an over-sized white tank or one of my American Apparel V-neck shirts for a casual look.  These are definitely a fun addition to my wardrobe because I get to experiment and style them in a number of ways.  BTW, head over to James Lillis’ blog to learn about his other amazing leggings and unique, new creations!
