must have mondays {tights}













I have a serious love / hate relationship with tights. They are warm and cozy when you want to wear a skirt or dress in the cold months and they make any plain ol' outfit pop! Buuuuut...... they get holes and runs so easy! There are so many gorgeous designs out this season and I want them all but I am very hesitant when it comes to shelling out too much money for a pair. I find it hard to invest in expensive tights when I know that any little wrong movement can ruin the whole pair! At my current job I can't really go for the shredded look so that is out of the question, instead I turn to ebay and target for amazing deals. The first pair with the little hearts have been popping up all over the blog world and I just had to have a pair, most people picked theirs up at topshop for $16 plus shipping since I'm out in California. I looked all over the internet and found a new pair on ebay for $6.95 with free shipping, nothing better than that!

I'm in love with this post...you know that, right?

I talk about Wolford on my blog a lot. They cost a LOT (sometimes as much as 3 or 4 pairs of tights). But that said, you need to try in order to damamge them. They stand up better to every day wear and tear than any other brand by far.

Might be worth checkind out. Have a great day!

Who does the peacock feather tights???? I must have them!!!!
I think I own more tights than undies now? That said, they are the most cost effective way of changing and individualising a look. Great post.

Oh, I love all of these, but I'm like you; I can't justify spending more than just a few dollars on tights when I know that they're going to rip after just a few wears. I wish Target or Forever 21 carried cute designs for cheap!

Savvy Gal said...

i am so with you on the love and hate part. my friend purchased a pair from kate spade (black with polka dots) and she said those dots looked like fat measels.... : (

I had the ones from topshop too. Sadly they ripped the last time I wore them :(
I don't like to spend a lot on tights either but maybe the more expensive ones would last longer..?

Great selection!! Love the ones that resemble a peacock. I also love tights but I don´t know why I don´t like spending money on them! This year I think I am going to change that. ;)

I freaking LOVE all these tights. You found some fantastic pairs. In fact, I don't even know where to begin. Lol. I'll just say that I am dying to own those peacock feather ones (SO gorgeous) and I love the hearts pair as well.

I LOVE TIGHTS! And, its so funny you mentioned TopShop because I went there last week while in NYC. And, nope, no heart tights! I was so upset! Thanks for the ebay referral... now I know where I can go!

I really love the heart printed tights. I love the bright colors.

Heather Taylor said...

elledee said...

Do you know where the pair with the hearts running down the back is from? I need those!

I just bought these and have only worn them twice and they have a run: http://glammed.blogspot.com/2009/10/anthro-junkie.html

Love the name of your blog.
I've been obsessing over tights too. The heart ones area adorable. I love the tights Leighton Meester just wore for a photo shoot (posted on my site). Tights are just a fun way to spice up any look.
