Today I'm wearing my Jonathan Aston "Sweet Roses" lace tights. The picture is not me, somehow I thought it really would step over the limit of office comradery to ask one of the guys to take a picture of my legs. Seriously, that would have to be some kind of office harassment case waiting to happen. Also I'm wearing a work appropriate knee length skirt so the picture gives you a much better idea of what they look like.
Anyway, I LOVE these tights. That is right LOVE - with capital letters. I spent more on them than I've ever spent on a pair of tights, but luckily they seem to wear very well so are actually decent value on a per wear basis. They definitely good value on a per comment basis. Every time I wear them I'm bound to get a comment. I wore them out on the weekend a couple of weeks ago and got 6 comments, including 3 random strangers who stopped me in shops to comment. Now that is one hard working pair of tights!
But mostly I just love how they make even a rather ordinary work outfit a bit girly and special. They are lace, with roses and a backseam. What more could I ask for? They also remind me that sometimes it is ok to spend a bit more on something special because they make me feel great - does that make me shallow?
