I'd been working for several hours, grinding myself into new pieces of poetry, when Emem of We Love Colors told me they were sending over a gift. Insert extreme jubilation. Tights (and all things of that nature) are a great annex to any outfit and something that effortlessly transforms the dynamics of mood as well as your ornamental aesthetic the moment you slide into them. When I saw the cosmic assortment of colors, sizes, and styles ranging from tights and leggings to knee highs and thigh highs, and even fishnets stockings, I knew it would take all of a second to discover a handful of favorites. And that's exactly what happened. So even amidst the crazy weather here in St. Louis, I donned my b&w Vertical Striped Thigh Highs like my very own social armor and set out for a 14-degree photo session that I'll be posting very soon.
