Eyelet Lace


The snow may be falling picturesquely, but on the ground it's a slushy, salty winter hell. This means I have no choice but to wear my rubber boots with thermal socks outside. Is it to cold to be wearing my two-tone tights? Probably, but they're just about the best thing to ever happen to my wardrobe so I don't care.

I'm glad everyone seemed to like that WWII propaganda poster I pictured. My friend gave me a belated Christmas/Birthday present a couple nights ago and it was this random death metal cd he found at a secondhand music shop because it reminded him of my love for Old Greg. Mermen: A Glorious Lethal Euphoria - sounds intense!


Actually, I just listened to the cd and it isn't really death metal. Dangnabbit!

I think Derek Zoolander would also like the Mermen CD. It would have been so much better if it is really Death Metal though, I dream of the day when aqua themed names replace things like Infected Malignity.

Also, you look v. cute again in the winter outfit, those tights are awesome indeed.

I gave a friend a cd I found for Christmas one year called "Ladies of Gangsta Rap". I thought it was funny. I'm sorry to hear the deathmetal wasn't quite deathmetal.

oh, the snow. i can't resist tights in the cold, either. i've been a sucker for wwii posters lately, too. one i am longing for a copy of is the...
"she may look clean-but...
pickups
'good time' girls
prostitutes
spread syphilis and gonorrhea
you can't beat the axis if you get vd."
amazing.

I know what you mean about snow. I love those tights.

You know, Isa, I couldn't stand two-toned tights when I first saw them, but you wear them well. Maybe I'm changing my mind about them.

Your look in this photo is a little bit of "Catholic school girl".

Pish, I totally wore tights and dresses everyday we had snow here. Wet tights dry quick. Wet denim, on the other hand, is a nightmare.
Lovely blouse, by the way.

I love that top. It has a very soft, winter-y feel to me. And, by the way, I'd risk the cold in a pair of two-toned tights for sure. So worth it. Check out my new blog if you get a chance. -kimberleighROSE

that shirt is just beautiful! If you haven't, I urge you to enter your outfit to weardrobe's contest (which ends today!) for their plaid themed contest :)

The 2 town tights are pretty great too

Laura MW said...

I like how the shirt is slightly sheer and POO YOU YOU OWN THE BLACK AND WHITE TIGHTS. They don't have them on the website in the UK anymore :'(
Not fair!!
