To me, floral tights are like the ingredients required for a magnificent multi-layered cake: you know, you’ve seen them in magazines before, made eye contact with them at the store (what, you DON’T make eye contact with eggs?! Oh, let me tell you, you are missing OUT!) and thought about them a few more times (again, you DON’T think about flour? Sheesh, what are you doing with yourself?!), before finally taking the plunge and snapping them up gleefully, thinking “ooh, won’t this be a spectacular little frolic through Fun Town!”
And then they sit there, unused. And sit some more. You may occasionally peer at them, contemplating whether or not you should try and integrate them into something else (because now that you’ve thought about it, your original plan for them was approximately 3,456 times more difficult than you had initially suspected!), but eventually you just end up saying “look thickened cream, this is just getting WEIRD. Don’t take this personally, but I think it would be better if we didn’t see eachother for a while. I just can’t handle the guilt anymore!” So the cream is introduced to a delightful new companion, pancakes, but the tights? Well, they’re relegated to the back of the drawer. And it turns out that they do take it personally. So personally, in fact, that you decide to use them in your next Style Challenge, because frankly, the rumours that they’ve spread about you to all the socks have become so severe that there’s really no alternative!
And here they are! Don’t be fooled by those pretty violet flowers, these babies are hard work. (As if you couldn’t already tell by their penchant for gossip!) They don’t like yellow. Or pink. Or red. In fact, if you were to present them to ANY colour, I’m 99.9% sure that they would turn their nose up at those, too. But when situated with black? Gosh, what a power couple! I mean, they were finishing eachother’s sentences and laughing like there was no tomorrow! (Could there be wedding bells soon?!)
If I ever decide to enter another relationship with a different pair of floral tights, I’ll be sure to remember the black formula. Although, now that I think about it, I didn’t actually introduce them to any purples. Could that result in another blissful partnership? (Or what about a grey?!)
I’m not entirely sure, but I do know that if there’s one thing that personifies style, it’s the vegetation recycling bins in the background!
Have YOU ever worn floral tights before? And if you haven’t, would you?
