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.
