I'm obsessed with colored and patterned tights; in fact I have been for years. I can remember years and years ago, prancing about town in some bright orange tights that garnered quite a few looks. The weather in Boston has been unseasonably warm and I hadn't really had the chance to whip out the fun color tights until Saturday night. Let's talk about this particular brand of tights - We Love Colors. It's the first time I've worn them and I'm often wary of anything that isn't a pair of Spanx. Let's face it ladies, some of us need the control top. But anyway, these tights are great. Admittedly, they are lacking in the control top department but they are a nice thick weight and sit high up on the waist. And to top it off, the tights are the exact same color as these favorite red Prada mary janes. Plus they come in a multitude of bright, saturated colors if that's your thing.
I know I'm a very lucky gal in so many ways, but especially when it comes to the fabulous closet of shoes I have (I will someday literally be the old lady who lives in her shoes). But these Pradas really do stand out among all my lovely shoes. The color, the curve of the heel, the buttons. Can Miuccia do wrong in the shoe department? I think not.
When I decided to plan the night's outfit around the shoes and tights, I thought I would wear a little black dress. But most of the LBD's I own are sleeveless and I wanted something with a sleeve. So I pulled out this whimsical Jovavich Hawk for Target polka dotted dress. To add whimsy to whimsy, I wore an animal print coat over the dotted dress over the red tights and shoes. Sometimes, too much is just not enough.
