I love these leggings. I am a fan of all things quirk, and the maps on these babies are everything I could have ever wanted and more. After my hopes of acquiring beautiful legwear were dashed when Black Milk ran out of those gorgeous leg bones leggings, I knew I had to set my sights elsewhere.

So one dark day, when my boredom had reached an insurmountable level that even porn couldn't satisfy, I stumbled upon NastyGal's website and saw these $34 leggings. Now, the Leg Bones ones were like, $80, so I figured the price, while still high for leggings, was reasonable enough.

And then I made them bitches MINES. 

I wanted to go for a pin-up look with the sunglasses and all. Love it. I would do it everyday if I could!

So, it is only fair with this post that I also mention a song that clearly demonstrates...that it has nothing to do with fashion at all, but shares a namesake. In 2004, Yeah Yeah Yeahs released it as a single from their album, (my personal favorite) Fever to Tell. The backstory is that Karen O wrote it for then-boyfriend Angus Andrew, frontman of Liars. And Word of God also says that Maps stands for "My Angus Please Stay." The tears in the video are real. She was baaawing because her man said he'd to the video shoot, but didn't arrive until 3 hours later. When he finally did, the waterworks began. Aww.
