Tights are my essential go-to’s to offset the chill of winter without the sacrifice of style. These days, tights are so versatile that you can style them in creative ways – with a dress, under boots, peaking out from beneath ripped jeans, or in my case, with a skirt and booties. Wearing tights has changed the way I dress in the winter months, allowing me to wear the leg-bearing outfits I thought only possible in warmer months. I am willing to pay more for my statement tights since I wear them most every day; I choose Wolford for its quality, durability, and high style. Do the unthinkable: wear tights in winter!

… who liked to twirl!
Clothing can do many things. It can raise us up, it can give us strength, it can keep us warm and cozy, it can free us, it can help us to mature, and it can also bring us back to our younger selves. Growing up, I was a girly-girl. I used to love wearing dresses – especially party dresses – and I loved dresses with wide skirts that would allow me to twirl. The flouncier the better. Although I never lost my love of wearing dresses, I forgot how much I liked to twirl in a special party dress. So it was with an indescribable joy that I purchased this dress … and for an excellent price. It needed alterations so that it could be more fitted in the bodice but it was worth it. I had not seen a dress with this kind of swing, well, since I was a young girl.
Styled for the Autumn chill with my leather bomber jacket, black tights, and booties, I found myself twirling and feeling like my younger self. #Happy!
