I’m wearing…

A dress by Charlotte Russe

A belt by H&M

Tights by Hue

and of course, a flower in my hair.

This is also worth mentioning- a good pair of tights is a wonderful investment, but you have to shop around to find out which brand has the best quality. I’ve had these tights from Macy’s for a YEAR now and they still are in perfect condition. They cost $12.50. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the multiple pairs of tights I bought from American Eagle for the same price. I bought these white, cable knit tights from there. I am 5’3 and 130 pounds, so I bought my usual medium. I was so excited to wear them because I bought them right after the campaign was over. Then I found out that they were too short and kept sagging. It was the first time in my life I could ever say that I bought something and it turned out to be too short! I also bought these houndstooth tights and after wearing them MAYBE 10 times, they’ve already started to get a hole at the toe seam. As for the pointelle tights, don’t waste your money. They’re good for a few wears and then after that- the holes will start to form. If you’re going to buy these- you might as well hand wash them. I was disappointed because I love American Eagle because they have the best jeans for my body. I guess that doesn’t carry on for their tight collection.
