What I Wore Wednesday

two tone silk blouse: Nordstrom,  pencil skirt: France, jacket: Nine West from years ago, tights: Cynthia Rowley
 
 By now, some of you may be aware of my predilection for tights in a variety
of fun, bright hues. My hesitation towards color seems to be near gone.




Just last week my beloved Shelly's of London flats bit the dust. The sole,
literally began flapping at the most inopportune of times. 

Perhaps I should make a post on what to do when you are without a spare
pair of flats/heels as I got creative quite quickly to avoid embarrassment.



I clearly have a bit more work to do on my "outfit" posts - as I forgot to 
take my handbag with me (usually the best part of my outfit.)
 
 
Alas, being a freelance writer, I am far more comfortable at my desk than
in front of the camera. A fact made painfully clear in the above three photos :)
 
  
 
What color/print are your favorite pair of tights?
 
 
p.s. Happy Day The World Will End day like any other/Wednesday.

  5. Rest in peace, little flats! What did you end up doing?

    This happened to me with my favorite pair of leather sandals, when I was walking to dinner one night. So awful... I had to walk the rest of the way to the restaurant with only one shoe, and when I got there, had to ask the maitre d' for duct tape to literally tape my shoe back together..... so mortifying

    1. Well first I made little rounds with scotch tape and tried to get them to stick that way (smart, I know) but it made a horrible squeaky noise and came undone. Then I used some heavy-duty packing tape which worked a lot better. Your story makes me feel a great deal better! Thanks Bettina :)
