On the other hand, sometimes I just look weird.
When hunting for my birthday gift to myself, I stumbled upon an item that combines two of my favorites -- tights and colors. I love tights. I love bright colors. They are joined together in a pair of multi-colored fishnet tights ($6) offered by my prized dance store.
I am wearing these as an artistic experiment. I like 'em. One might or might not wear them in normal life. What do you think?
I have to say that I'm not entirely pleased with how this photoshoot turned out. It is very difficult to be both model and photographer. You can't see what you're shooting until too late and, here, I tried an unusual camera-angle which made that even more unpredictable. This was a hard shoot to perform and I wish the results were better but they aren't. You need to cut me some slack here, unless you want to come over my house and help me take pictures.
Thanks to Toadmama for the scarf and pretty ring.
ANYTHING on those amazing legs of yours look good ... They look great paired with the plain dress ... I was thinking that they would go nicely with my white skirt but then I dont know what shoes I would put with them. Hmmmm ... again you make us think!!!ReplyDelete
I think you look fabulous. The camera angles are fine. What shoes?ReplyDelete
Oh how fun! Tights are one way I love to experiment. They're a great way to take an outfit to the next level. Looks like you had a lot of fun with them!ReplyDelete
Also fwiw, it's just as unpredictable when you do have a photographer.ReplyDelete
These are a great pair of tights--the remind me of some that Desiree at Pull your Socks up wears from time to time!ReplyDelete
I do hate being my own photographer- it's really hard to get any other pose than the one. I LOVE YOUR LEGS IN THESE TIGHTS!! YOU LOOK AMAZING!! :-)ReplyDelete
It IS difficult to take self portraits. Agreed. But your legs look beautiful. Job well done.ReplyDelete
Those tights are so colorful! I love them! I find that your photos are great! I know how hard it is to take your own photos, but I find that every time yours turn out really well!ReplyDelete
I think your phot's come out wionderful!!ReplyDelete
Those are some GORGEOUS tights--love how you styled them with white so they and your fabulous legs can be the STARS!!!
Well,I think you're being a little hard on yourself here...I like the angle, and I love these tights and how you've played them up with simple white!ReplyDelete
Photographing oneself IS weird! You'd think you'd be more comfortable?! But no!!!
I say well done, and I also say I need to get hold of a pair of these amazing fishnets!!! EEEK!
There's a link to the seller in the post and they cost only $6. Great bargain.Delete
I am loving the curves in this photo! These tights are out of this world - never seen tights that are so funky! I think if i tried to work them I wouldn't do them justice because I'd just be a coward and wear black to tone it down but it takes the FUNK out of it. Love what you did!ReplyDelete
I enjoy wearing colour, both bold and brilliant just as your tights. It's great that you're experimenting with your style. I think you look fabulous!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous tights! But I prefer fishnets with closed toes (much more comfortable) and they're fiendishly hard to get hold of...ReplyDelete
I understand, Erika -- my toes kept poking through! Next time, I'm gonna wear them with white tights underneath for more comfort and greater color.Delete
Those tights are super-fun, and look fantastic on those great gams of yours!ReplyDelete
You're right, they're probably not suitable for wearing out in public -- especially for people of a certain age such as ourselves -- but that's not what you are wearing them for, so enjoy them!
Fun tights! I'd wear them with a black dress and then pull one of the colours from the tights for a scarf or neckklace.ReplyDelete
As for not having a photographer -- it is tough. My husband can't take a decent picture even when I've put the camera on a tripod, lined it up, and all he has to do is press the button. Sigh. My new DSLR has a pivoting screen and a remote which has made is 1000 times easier!
I think this is a great artistic experience, you did a wonderful job capturing the fun of these tights! And even if it is awkward being your own photographer sometimes, you still look like you are having fun and that's important too!ReplyDelete
I love the way you pose!It is very difficult indeed...everytime I have to ask my bf to be my photographer I feel so bad..ReplyDelete
Lovely tights the colours are amazing like a rainbow!xo
I have to admit that these are awesome - i dont think i would wear them as part of an outfit but what you did is fun.ReplyDelete
I really like all the posing, seems like you enjoyed every minute of it.
I did, buddy. Posing is joyful for me as I like to learn more about feminine posture and movement.Delete
I love those stockings, they are great!!!!!! I'm envious now!ReplyDelete
For only $6 they can be yours!Delete
Fabulous tights - what great glowing colours! I appreciate hearing about your processes of exploration, experimentation, and learning - we are all in these places in some way or other. For me, those times when "I just look weird" are revealing.ReplyDelete
These tights are all kinds of fabulous fun - very swinging 60s London with just a hint of 90s rave scene thrown in. At the same time, they also remind of some rather scrumptious candies I've enjoyed over the years.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for your wonderfully nice comments this week. It's a pleasure to "meet" you and that know that you've been enjoying flipping through some of my back posts.
I like the new photo angles but I really like the outfit, too! That white dress with white belt and fun scarf, jewelry & tights are awesome! I probably wouldn't have the guts to wear such eye-catching tights like that (in public) but they look fab on you. I think I want to copy this outfit but do black tights with black shoes, as I have seen on some starlets recently. Just need to find the perfect white dress...ReplyDelete
hi! im fran, a spanish male fashion blogger. Maybe you like my style and want to follow meReplyDelete
you look lovely! I adore your bright tights! that's something really special!ReplyDelete
very cute outfit in total. You scarf's very pretty. I just wonder what shoes would you wear if you went outside :)
I have a pair of white heels that would be perfect.Delete
I really love them, they're almost mod looking.ReplyDelete

Those tights are such a statement piece! I love them. I'd wear them with boots and a skirt about that length...the boots would minimize how much of the tights you can see, making them more "peek-a-boo" and less "in-your-face."ReplyDelete
Anyway, experimentation is the best part of fashion, right?
Although I'm not personally into the color, I really like the visual effect these tights have. Your legs look great!ReplyDelete
You look splendid in those tights. The vertical lines of color accentuate your already fantastic legs! I like that you kept the dress simple but added a color accent with the scarf. I think those tights would be so much fun with a pair of heeled knee-high boots!ReplyDelete
i know you are already tall, but those striped tights make your legs look miles long!ReplyDelete
HOW DID I MISS THIS CRAZY TIGHTS POST? I love them! I also love that you will try anything once, most people say that, but don't actually DO what they say.ReplyDelete
I am with you on the selfies, I tried this morning and they came out utter crap, hopefully I will have better luck when I get home.
I'm with everyone who says your legs look fabulous in those tights. They are really funky and I like that you paired them with a white dress.ReplyDelete
