Are Baggy, Footless Tights In Your Fashion Future?

I’m all for most hosiery trends, whether it be two-toned, crazy-patterned, or studded leg wear. And I’ve never been an opponent of “tights as pants,” as long as it’s done tastefully. But I have to admit that I don’t know what to make of Wolford’s Voile leggings/footless tights. Isn’t hosiery supposed to be fitted, not baggy? I have to say that these look like the cheap stockings sold at drugstores and bodegas, which are barely adequate when you’re in a bind and create a very unsexy-looking leg. These leggings, however, aren’t inexpensive, and retail for about $62. They not only look weird (and not in a good eccentric way) and cost too much, but are also impractical. I can’t think of any way to rock these that wouldn’t make the wearer look short and malnourished. Well, I guess if you’re trying to look thinner, these might do the trick, but would you really want to risk having your style license revoked? I didn’t think so. Head over to Stylehive or TheFrisky for more!

Coveted Illustrated: PAPERFASHION

As much as I love photography, there is nothing more personal than seeing one’s interpretation of the world through what they create with their own hands. Yesterday, I was blown away by Katie from PAPERFASHION,  one of my favorite blogger-illustrators, had sent an illustration of me in my most casual weekend attire. On PAPERFASHION Katie hand draws and paints her fashion musings with the touch of classic illustration which gives a unique view from the regular runway shots most of us use. She even has an Etsy shop!

 

I’ve been a fan for some time, and am completely flattered by her choosing me as one of her inspirations.
