Everybody Everywear: Colored Tights

November 8, 2011 § 10 Comments

Well my right carpal tunnel release went perfectly smooth yesterday though I am in so much freaking pain! And since I’m right handed I’m having trouble being on a computer. I can be on my iPhone just fine but being on a computer is awkward.  So posts may get a bit thin on language (though I did prepare a number of posts where I won’t have to add much before publishing).

In hindsight I should have stuck a belt on this outfit. Maybe a scarf too. Oh well. But I did learn one thing from this: I HATE THESE TIGHTS! It’s not that they are sweater tights, that isn’t the issue (matter of fact very warm and I liked that part of it), it’s that they weren’t tall enough (may have been how I adjusted them, I don’t know till I try again) and they FELL OFF half way through my pictures. Just slid right off. I waddled into my apartment with them around my knees. Really? Now I know I will have no choice but to wear Spanx over these if I want to wear them. Pain in the ass I tell you. Pardon my language. Being sweater tights though…well I just may wear more skirts in the winter if I can get some of these that actually fit okay. I always stick with the jeans because I get cold easy. But maybe with these that won’t be the case. I do think I may order a few pairs (or will request a few pairs for Christmas!) of colored tights from We Love Colors though. Last year I was not brave enough to try all the color – not so anymore!! And I keep buying skirts & dresses to wear.

Oh and like the boots? I went to Avenue to get colored tights once I knew what the EBEW challenge was going to be and these just jumped into my arms and out the door. Exactly like what I have been searching for.

    Aww it sucks that they fell off, especially since they look so good!

  • I’m sorry to tell you, but I laughed out loud with the image of you waddling inside with tights around your knees. I sometimes have this problem too. Mine don’t fall all the way down, but they do slide uncomfortably low. I found that I just have to be really careful when I put them on and make sure I am pulling them up far enough. A few adjustments as I use the restroom throughout the day, and I’m fine. Happy to hear that you’re going to keep trying, they look cute!

      That’s all right – my fiance has you covered! He took one look at me and almost started rolling on the floor! I am definitely going to keep trying…jeans are so boring!

  • Very cute outfit! Love the boots too.

    And I had the same thing happen to me with a pair of tights…and I was out in public at the time LOL!

  • Salazar says:

    Too bad about the tights! They look great with the turquoise, so maybe if you can find another pair the same color…?

    And those boots are seriously awesome.

    • Missy says:

      That’s what I’m thinking I’ll do – this color is fabulous and matches a lot of my clothes so probably We Love Colors – at least I know I’m getting quality there!

      And thank you! I agree that the boots are too cool!

  • haha loved your honest post! My tights often fall down and i often find myself hoisting them back up to where they should be. The colour looks great on you though, and those boots are amazing!!

    • Missy says:

      Thank you! Yeah the tights pissed me off something hardcore – I’m STILL irritated that I wasted money on them and now have to find replacements. Oh well!

What’s this?
