Thigh Highs

Blouse: Vintage Shorts: Goodwill Socks: Urban Outfitters Shoes: Frye

I have been looking for the perfect pair of white tights for awhile now, and have not been successful. But I spotted these thigh highs at Urban Outfitters yesterday and figured they are close enough to work. But after wearing them I think I enjoy them more than tights. They create such drama to a look and are the perfect accessory to sexify a simple, otherwise conservative outfit, without drifting into skanky territory.

And I borrowed by friend's old SLR camera yesterday to shoot some photos for a new magazine ( I couldn't me more exited to show you all the results but you're going to wait until the issue comes out at the beginning of the summer) and have officially decided I'm going to upgrade my camera. Even though the SLR I was using only had 6.1 mega pixels it was light years ahead of my little point and shoot camera. So without wasting any time, I think I'm going to make the upgrade next week. When I decide to do something I rarely wait, I just jump in and do it!

Super cute! Love the colors:)

DearBeatrice said...

I love it!! I agree with you, they do make for a more dramatic chic look and you pull them off so well without heading to the skanky side! (I've seen it so many times on the skanky side, sad) also, I love the rolled up shorts, so cute ^.^

pintopinto said...

I love the shorts, and those thigh highs! You're lucky you have such awesome legs! I have to be careful when wearing thigh highs because they either won't stay up, or they'll be too tight on my thighs and I get a weird muffin-top situation going on. But you've inspired me - I think I might try wearing them more often!

Sugar Kane said...

These colors are extraordinary, and so the shirt, the shorts and the socks that aren't easy to wear. On the contrary you do with class and style.
Very very cute!

OooKellyNicky said...

Wow, GREAT SHORTS, GREAT SHORTS, GREAT SHORTS!! Oh, and I love the shorts.. Lol. The color is so rich and pretty... and that fabric looks so smooth, what a great find. Thrifting is the ultimate best thing to do ever!!

Those shorts are the scene-stealer. Ok, those legs are the scene stealer's scene stealer. I doubt you could ever get a passport to "skank territory."
