I didn’t mind the dress so much, it was the tights I hated.
They bagged. And sagged. And the crotch usually lurked around my knees.
This season, tights are in style.
Textured tights! Colored tights! Patterned tights!
They are so cute I want to buy a pair in every style color and texture.
I have been wearing my tights with my boots. So cute! So wintery! So warm!
Yesterday, I wore my boots with pants. Also cute, wintery and warm. I love my boots. For one thing, they come to my knees. Anyone over a size 12 knows how hard it is to find knee boots that actually fit over your calves. I love my boots. Plus, they look awesome with tights.
But I wore boots yesterday. I didn’t wanna wear 'em again today.
So in my mind, I planned my outfit:
Black turtleneck, black skirt, black patterned tights & ropy pearl accessories.
But instead of wearing my boots, I would wear my grey herringbone mary janes.
How chic! How Vogue! How classic!
In my mind, I resembled a Talbots ad.
About 10 am, I realized that my boots had pilled the tights. So they looked fine from my hem to my knee, but the knee down looked as if I had waded through Styrofoam.
About 11 am, the ankles were sagging.
By 3pm, the crotch started creeping towards my knees.
In my mind I just stepped out of Talbots.
In reality, I looked more like “Real People of Walmart.”
