Thankfully, things have changed

When I was a kid back in the 80s, each Sunday I would have to get dressed up for church.  Inevitably, this would include the super-thick stockings.  I think they must have taken a ball of yarn and tried to see if the stockings could be as thick as the ball originally was.  Although the color options were pretty great, these things were super itchy, super uncomfortably, and left me not ever wanting to wear stockings or panty hose ever again.

This week, I bought two pair of black tights/panty hose.  I really like how they look on other people and figure that after all these years, someone had to have come up with a better cloth make-up that would not cause the itching and irritation of the 80s brands.  I also hate wearing pants every day in the winter and tights are an easy option to still be able to wear dresses and skirts without freezing to death in the StL cold.

The tights are awesome! I rocked them two days this week so far.  Once with a dress and some pumps and today with a skirt and some boots.

I am a convert.  I want more colors.

I guess I just have to buy the quality ones instead of the cheap Walgreens brands.


  1. Target has a gajillion colors and patterns.

    Also, please remember that tights are not pants. Thank you.

  2. I was actually hoping to get the thicker option and wear them with thigh-high boots and short tops.

  3. I've always wondered how it it that we can get away with wearing tights and a flimsy skirt on out lower body but still have to wear 3/4/5 layers of clothing to cover our chests and arms in cold weather #scientific reason anyone?

  4. @trainee - Not sure if it is the lack of cold, or the pleasure in showing off legs. But I'm sure there is some scientific reasoning behind it with blood flow or something.


I share my thoughts and would love to read your thoughts, too.
