blue tights

bluetights: me 2008

a whole
drawer
of my
dresser
is filled
with tights.

i was
teased a lot
for having
such white legs.

in elementary school
i wore
red tights
and legwarmers
with
my catholic
school
uniform.

in high school,
even in the
heat of
california
summers,
i wore
blue tights
with
wool mukluks.

this week
i came
across
old college
photos.
they use to
call me
"the girl
with
the colored tights"

bluetights: me 1998
circa 1998

i love the
new cover
of toast:

bluetights: toast

and this
amazing
photo.

have
a lovely
weekend.

ohh, I like your photo on the top and the one you linked to. I have a similar problem with a drawer full of tights, but I probably only wear them once a year. I just keep compulsively buying them just in case.

I just bought some tights today...and they're too small.

I was looking for mustard colored tights but couldn't find any. Maybe tomorrow.

Hope all is well.

You are definitely the trend-setter for coloured tights, love the image on the cover of Toast (and of course your photo)!
