Dear Ruby is a boutique located in Utah – a long way away from Atlanta – but I have known about them for a while. I discovered them last year while looking for jewelry – of which they have a great collection of extremely pretty items, all at fantastic prices, especially their bib necklaces. Anyway, I had ‘liked’ them on Facebook and the other day in my newsfeed I saw that they were giving away some faux leather leggings. I took a peek and found these on their site for just $14!! They also have them in oxblood, and all their prices are amazing.
Their styling online could be better, and requires a little imagination but trust me – I just love these leggings. They add a little pizazz to a simple outfit and are great for day or night. The absolute best thing about them is the waistband. Instead of being a narrow piece of elastic, like most leggings, that can pinch in your waist and create a fabulous muffin top – these have a wider band around the waist that is smoothing and contours to your shape. It reminds me a bit of the belly bands I wore when I was pregnant. It’s not a high band – just very smooth and removes any risk of muffin top – so much so I wore mine here with a very tight long tank dress without any fear of lumps or bumps. These leggings are great value for money, wash well and are super comfortable and flattering – what more could a girl want?
