Nothin' but net

If another reason never crops up,

I could still love this season for the tights alone.

Net notes: If it is tasteful, it is ageless. Tights-and-boot girls: Be sure you choose a soft hide boot with interior zipper facings, otherwise zipper-rub will destroy those Fogels for you in a snap. For the leg-coverer's (boo, hiss, boo): Riding skirt.

Don't try to make too much sense of matching the hosiery color to the shoe or boot, a little flash of color on your leg between your hem and boot is fabulous, revolutions have started over less. Jet back to jet black is never wrong but jewel tones mixed with earthy naturals are engaging and pare down the lust factor of the spike: Sapphire tights over a cognac knee-high spike. Jade next to graphite. Pewter and navy. Burgundy and gunmetal. Ivory and pecan. Are you with me?

Stuart Weitzman, Igiveup (Yes, that is really their name. I have no idea how these boots got in here. The devil made me do it. But I'm not sorry: Black pencil skirt and tights, six days a week but not on Sundays, then this would get talked about.)

I am loving tights for this season-- though I have to confess I am just not a boot kind of girl-- I'd rather have a pair of sassy heels any day!

I just found new tights over the weekend. I do need a fab pair of new boots, my black and brown are boring me a bit... although with fishnet!

JMW said...

Amen, sista! Love those boots - especially the vintage ones. Fab!

I got a great pair of cheapie "riding" boots at Target. They'll last a season, which is how long it will take me to get bored with them.

Blushing - What aren't more women wearing them?

Marriage proposal still on the table gorgeous girl.
