i finally found this dress in the new look sale a few wks ago in the TALL range..now, i know i'm not really that tall, but i tried on the regular length one when it was first released and it was insanely short, hence not buying it until i found it by chance in the sale..i don't think i could cope with it any shorter, but i was glad to think of it as the perfect thing to go with these tights..
i'm excited about patterned tights recently..i'm aware that i'm about a million years late on one of the biggest 'blogger-trends' going, but there it is..however, i know what i'm like when it comes to wearing tights once, and catching them on a bag, the car, my desk, anything really..they literally last about a day, and as it there seems to be no correlation between my propensity to ruining tights and the price i have paid for them, i tend to favour cheap tights and stockings / hold-ups rather than paying an insane amounts for them..which has meant that whilst i have drooled over patterned henry holland tights etc, i have never tried any..
so i was quite pleased when i saw a pair of these on a plastic leg in primark recently..£2 for the pair and they are fairly thick, i figured i may as well give them a go..i wore them with the dress as i decided it would be the right length to show off some of the detail on the tights, and yet still is a fairly 'smart' outfit as i had to start the day with a breakfast networking meeting before heading to my office..i did get some comments on them (good, i think) and i really like them..i love the polka dots and the rose pattern, and the fact that they don't make my legs look quite so huge as usual (which has always been a reservation i've had re patterned tights!)..
anyway, i will continue to work them into outfits (until the inevitable happens and i ruin them, anyway) and will look out for some more / similar ones within my meagre tights budget..enough hosiery chit-chat for today, but if you have any recommendations, please let me know..
