Yeah, me! I ripped my tights. and I love them like a fat kid loves cake. they are so fun, and funky and best of all I DIYed them myself. cheers for creativity. rather than buckle down and pay the 25 bucks for the american apparel ones, I just went to work on an old pair, and voila. however there is a drawback. I have been getting stared at all day. and not in that good "I love her outfit, she is so stunningly stylish" kind of way, but the other way. you know, the whole "I'm giving you the stink eye because I don't understand your outfit" kind of way. no joke.
when the hubby and I went to grab some sushi for lunch today I had an interesting encounter in the girl's bathroom. As I went to wash my hands, the girl next to me turned and said, "you know that you have a tear in your tights, right?". silence. no, really? I actually didn't know. its not like I have one tiny rip in my sheers, they are clearly shredded on purpose. I'm not crazy, right? Apparently, this girl believed that I was involved in some sort of heinously unfortunate tights accident.
after an awkwardly long moment I turned to her, "yes, I know. thanks." wow. are you kidding me people? she kept that peculiar look on her face as she exited. not only did my tights confuse and perplex her, but now they were down right offensive. oh man. I was texting back and forth with Christen of LaRueNeuve during the whole ordeal and we were left wondering why girls are so judgy. why do we have to give the stink eye to someone who is trying something a little out of the box. thats how fashion becomes fashion. no one ever became stylish by not taking risks. so the next time you see a girl in a questionable outfit, before you judge her, take a minute and think about how brave she was to try something different. and maybe that should earn her your respect and a smile, instead of harsh whispers and a pointing finger. but, I digress.
anyways, my outfits this week have been simple because I have been so busy. but not to worry, because I will have tons of fun, sparkly outfits for next week after the Vegas trip. :)
and if you were wondering who that cute pup is, thats Crash. shes one of my three girls. my own personal marley, if you will. anyone thinking about yellow lab adoption, talk to me first so that I can let you know what you are getting yourself, and your closet into.
on another note I'd like to say thankyou to Lisa for her lovely shoutout over on her blog and wish her luck as she gets ready for her wedding! and thanks to Ash, as well who tagged me in the honest scrap! woo... working on my list and it will be up tomorrow. thanks darling. :)
happy tuesday all!
