Plus-size tights have arrived!!

Poor me...sitting sadly at my computer, looking at blog photos of girls with fantastic tights, clicking on links and seeing those dreaded words UP TO 175 POUNDS (or up to 150).  I weigh QUITE a bit more than that, and I wanted brightly colored tights that ACTUALLY fit me.  AND NOW I HAVE THEM! 
Sitting on the dock of the library

I bought today's tights from Sock Dreams plus-sized collection, and two more pairs from We Love Colors plus-sized section in magenta and baby pink.  Aren't these black and red tights just the cutest, witchiest things?

If you notice (or can remember), this is the outfit from my very first entry, but I think the tights make it really pop!  And my new hair is really making me feel, if that makes any sense.  I had been wary of short hair, due to some poor short haircuts in high school, and I had worn my hair looong since then.  But this is fresh!  Yet retro!  And full of exclamation points!  I have to brush them out every night!

Dress: George
Red Shirt: Valerie Stevens


  1. I looooove this outfit! The tights really do make it pop!

  2. love the tights. love love love!
    :) also the hair - mine is similarily textured i think, but slightly shorter :)

  3. Yay! Love the tights! They are SO COOL! They'll be a great addition to your wardrobe. I'm really pleased with Sock Dreams. They're a huge hit amongst all my friends, and I haven't yet tried We Love Colors, but I am astounded by the variety they offer.

  4. haha: "full of exclamation points... have to brush them out..." that is hilarious! :)
    and these tights are totally awesome. i used to work at a costume shop, so i never had issues finding plus sized tights in a multitude of colors. just passing that along in case one of these pairs gets a run or something. cute post!

  5. I just came across your blog and I like what I see! I love the tights! We Love Colors gets a lot of business from me. :)

  6. Both of those sites (sock dreams & we love colors) are amazing! You look fantastic in that outfit!!! Love it!!!
