Now, I actually found this out by accident this morning while I was getting dressed. I had put on a a longish skirt, whose hem I wanted to raise so that my new skeleton socks were a little more visible (do I actually think like this?). And, just as an experiment, the kind you'd never try out unless
(Credit for these two goes to my neighbour again)
But this post was actually meant to be ALL about my legs. I know, right? I always thought of myself as a semi-serious writer... but I get too excited about tights to let these past you. So, maybe not my legs, but the way I present them to the world...or some other pretentious bullshit like that. I like clothes, so get over it and then I'll talk politics with you. It doesn't make me a ditz. I adore tights and an early birthday present I ordered myself from Sock Dreams (I couldn't think of another excuse) arrived yesterday. There's difinitely a theme to what was in the package, but I plan to wear these all year:
The photos of the stripey tights and the spiderweb fishnets are from the SockDreams web site...haven't worn them yet but I can't wait. But I took these:
I think they're my new favourites. They come to just above my knees, but I'm quite tall. These all shipped for free, by the way. So go get some. I was everyone's favourite Leah today at school (I really hope I did okay on that math test....and there's a chemistry exam tomorrow! Eeek!) and had loads of fun - several people sort of looked at me like I had three heads when I told them I ordered socks online.
Not a great day for food - dinner was pretzels and goats' cheese, but I've got a Plan. It involves pancetta. I will keep you posted. And I've got some other news that I don't have time to go into right now - they're about to switch off the internet - so don't let me forget to tell you what I'm official photographer for.
