leggings with zips by VELVET

champagne etc.

i found a really nice (if not perfect) pair of leggings under unlikely circumstances:  champagne tasting. 

my husband and i had gone to palo alto for a french champagne tasting at our favorite wine-tasting venu—vvw (vin vino wine) on california st.  if you love wine, especially french wine, you must try vvw (http://vinvinowine.com).  they have a monthly newletter listing the tastings, which have daily themes (e.g. loire valley whites).  the pours are generous, the setting hip in a warehousey sort of way, and the wines are terrific. 

we usually dine at BISTRO ELAN (check out their killer menu at http://www.bistroelan.com/Bistro_Elan/Welcome.html) across the street after our tastings.  now there does happen to be a little boutique called LEAF AND PETAL (check them out at  http://www.leafnpetal.com/about-us.phpright  next door.  i sometimes stumble over there to check out the clothes and am recognized by the owners as a cheerful, if slightly unsteady, customer.  

well, they had section i’d never noticed before, with bras, spanx, camisoles, and, believe it or not, leggings!  a black pair by VELVET (the brand, not the fabric) with zippers at the ankle caught my eye.  i tried them on et voila!  superbe!  and they feel just as good when one is sober!  i’ve worn them almost daily, limited only by my very small collection of suitable tops and shoes.  so you can see that we have a lot more shopping to do!
