ModCloth meets Black Milk Clothing


I've been wanting a brand new pair of wet-look leggings to replace my beloved American Apparel ones, which have lost their sheen and, frankly, were getting pretty tight. I've been watching a lot of SuperMaryFace on YouTube (I discovered her via Guy Tang, who I mentioned in my hair post — she's one of his clients) and she did a haul from Black Milk Clothing. They have great, nerd-themed leggings and are known for their wet look leggings. The ones I'm wearing are the wet-look pocket leggings, which have hip pockets that surprisingly stretch to accommodate your phone. They're a great price, they are super shiny in person, and they do stretch a fair bit. These are a bit tight on the waistband because I am in between sizes and chose the smaller size, but aside from that they're pretty great, opaque even when I bend over, and they come up over my bellybutton easily for maximum tummy minimizing.

I bought two long tops from ModCloth to wear with them. The first is the Secret of Whim top in Charcoal. This is a long, flowy, super soft top and my first venture into on-trend shoulder cutouts. I think it's super sexy yet still modest. The second is the Trusty Travel top in Green Plaid. It also feels really nice, has a more fitted look with a drawstring tie in the back, and is just slightly sheer, so I wore a tank underneath it.

It should be noted that I have a pathological fear of leggings ripping right up the butt and being fully exposed, so even though these feel pretty well-made, I pulled on a pair of fleece leggings under these just in case. But they do feel very high quality, the stitching doesn't seemed strained by my bootyliciousness despite them being a bit too small, and they're decently warm on their own without the second layer.

What do you guys think? I think these outfits are so great and reasonably priced, and I know I'll get a lot of use from these pieces.
