All Gretel, no Hansel
All you guys who've been sporting Hansel from Basel leg wear recently have inspired new levels of tights layering in me :D I go through a fair few tights (snag!) so I keep my collection cheap and cheerful. I don't want to end up bawling my eyes out every time a ladder makes an appearance.
Even though I doubt this here wall eyed Scrooge is ever going to own a pair I can't help but admire the unusual patterns and colour combinations on these designer tights from Los Angeles. I don't think I would have had the nerve to pair my orange tights with red socks (and not at least roll them down) if it wasn't for their pixie tights (one colour up to your thighs, then another).
This is the same belt I wore the other day in the underpass. Only since then I finally picked out the faded gold coloured plastic thread that had been threaded through the leather. I am hoping to replace it but for now I quite like the belt as is. I guess I de-80s-fied it despite the current revival.. or maybe because of it. Maybe I am so averse to "being with it" I have to sabotage what's in vogue in my closet (then again, sometimes a banana is just a fruity cigar) :P Enough randomness. More photos:
