Initially I was apprehensive when I saw the Wetlook capri pants by Coquette on EdenFantasys. My first thought was that they were only for thin girls. Luckily I try to break out of that mindset these days. Since there were already a few reviews to peruse I checked them out. In seemed to me that they looked hot on ladies of all sizes and fit true to size. These are available in sizes small, medium, large, extra large and 1X/2X.

I wear a size 10-12 in pants (as always, no specific measurements due to my history of disordered eating). According to the Coquette size chart a large will fit a size 12-14, 30-32″ waist and 40-42″ hips. I probably could have sized down to the medium in these and still had them fit. Their medium is listed as a 10-12. However I wanted to wear them lower. Plus I have a booty and thighs to think about. I am also 5’4″ tall to give you an idea of where they may hit you depending on your height.

Of course I measured them myself as well. Unstretched the waist measures 28″ but easily stretches to over 33″. The hips measure 34″ and easily stretch to over 40″. The inseam of the capris is 19″. The length from the top of the pant to the bottom is about 25″.

The pants come in a simple plastic bag with the name of the item and the size listed on a sticker on the bag. They are folded and the material sticks to itself so the pants initially appear smaller than they actually are.

The Coquette tag is attached to the pants with a ribbon and a pin. The tag mentions that they are from Coquette’s Darque collection (by the way, a ton of items in the Darque collection are super sexy). The inside of the tag shows a model wearing the capris with a matching wet look top from Coquette.

I know that frankly fashion rules say large thighs shouldn’t be shiny but I enjoy throwing all fashion rules out the window. Here I’ve paired these with a simple black tank top that is actually a workout top but is so fun that I have often worn it out at night.

just to show how stretchy the waist band is

I LOVE these capris. They are comfy and they make me feel like Sandy at the end of Grease.

So when I wore them out to a local bar I wore the above paired with my faux leather bomber that I’ve been sporting forever and my faux leather boots.

apologies for the blurry camera phone pic, I was in a hurry

I felt very sexy and comfortable while wearing these out. Since these are leggings didn’t feel overly hot like I have in the past in those thick pleather pants that we used to wear in the 90s. I actually plan on wearing these outdoors this summer.

They do ride low in the back when you are sitting. I had on a cute black glittery thong, so when it peeked out it wasn’t a big deal. Plus I was wearing the tank and jacket. However I’d recommend maybe some boycut panties instead so they don’t peak out.

These capris are 80% nylon and 20% spandex. According to the inner tag they are to be hand washed only and then hung to dry.

Some other pieces that would look sexy with these capris are below:





Of course any sexy black top that you already have at home will probably look fab with these. I highly recommend buying a pair. They are at a great price point as well.

This post is for The Film Experience’s awesome series Hit Me With Your Best Shot series.

I chose this difficult to cap moment because it’s when Edward fully realizes that he can’t pass as normal anymore so he rips off his suburban costume. This would probably work better as a gif but I still haven’t taught myself how to make those.

Normally when I do one of these I go overboard telling you everything that I love about the specific film. However I’m currently highly emotional so I mainly just cried while rewatching this Tim Burton film for the first time in years.

4 out of 5 stars

Dark Shadows is a campy horror comedy. It’s based on a supernatural soap opera about a vampire named Barnabas Collins that aired from the late ’60s to the early ’70s. The show was remade in the ’90s. The film version is set in the early ’70s. Tim Burton’s film stars his muse Johnny Depp as well as his long time girlfriend (she would be considered his common law wife if they lived in the US), the awesome Helena Bonham Carter.

The cast is rounded out by Eva Green, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jonny Lee Miller and Jackie Earle Haley (or as we may always think of him, 2nd Freddy Krueger).

Please enjoy my long but fun and informative video review of the film, above. It touches on the issues with feminism prevalent within the film because I could not avoid it for some reason.

I was recently reading about the Bad Movie MegaTwitterthon 6/4/11: Introduction to Destruction at Mr. Gable’s Reality via She Blogged By Night and thought that I would like to do the same thing but with Johnny Depp movies. Recently I thought about how I’d like to have a little Johnny Depp marathon for myself and this seemed like a fun thing to do in tandem with that.

So Sunday, July 31, 2011, (tomorrow) I will be watching a bunch of Depp flicks and tweeting about them. If you’re also a twitter freak then you can participate and follow along by using the hashtag #JDeppTweet and/or #JohnnyDepp. I will be following along. Many times we tweet about movies anyhow and sometimes we even watch them together after mentioning what channel they are on anyway. You can also follow along on with me on my twitter here or on GetGlue, mine is here but I don’t know if I’ll remember to check in. If you are not on twitter or GetGlue feel free to comment below. If you participate then I might do it again soon.

my stack of Depp DVDs

My game plan is most likely Blow, Secret Window, The Ninth Gate and then 1 of or a combination of Ed Wood, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Libertine, Rango and Sweeney Todd. Feel free to invent your own.

MY TOP PICKS FOR YOU

FOOD/BEVERAGE


I will be eating guacamole (via the above recipe from a Giant Eagle circular). It’s the recipe I always use except I use a food processor because I like it smoother. I also cut the recipe down and use less so it can get eaten before turning brown. You can subsitute regular onions for the red onions, lemon juice for the lime juice and garlic seasoning for the actual garlic if you don’t have those things on hand. Last time I made it I threw in some mushrooms too, which were tasty. Then dip in your tortilla chips and you are set.

I will also be having some type of beer (hopefully with lime flavoring) and some tequila.
