Hella Tight

Good morning, Porcelain readers!

Thursday night, the ladies and I painted the town red in SF. We went to meet up with friends at Cassettes and we weren't sure if it was gonna be cold or not. Luckily, it was a beautiful night, but I did take a pair of tights with me, just in case. Tights are the best transition for Fall. Here are some of my faves.

Bright Tights:

Yes, Fall is about purples, greys, navys, etc, but every once in a while, a good pop of color can do no harm. Photo by John Galliano RTW '08.

Striped Tights:

Sonia Rykiel still has me mesmerized. Her striped tights for the RTW '08 have me wanting to try it out with my home made version.

And did you see the little crowns some of the models sported? Crochet time! Photo found on google.

Dark Colored Tights:

I found this pic on foto decadent. From Korean Marie Claire. Colored tights were big last year. Expect nothing to change with that. I'm totally loving the blue wig too!Ripped Tights:

Alexander Wang had tongues wagging about his ripped tights. A few bloggers have commented on them, saying both positive and negative things. Is he taking the grunge look a bit far? Especially when ripped tights cost you more than your monthly Starbucks addiction? Probably. So, instead of breaking the bank, rip up a pair of Target tights to wear under those shorts.

Lace Tights:

Here, the lovely Cheapskate Chic wears two trends in one. Lace and ballerina tights! My mom used to make me some when I was like 8 (not lying, I swear), but she used to make them footless. Fake Leatha:

Antonio Berardi, once again. I saw some this weekend. Almost bought them, but I'm broke due to Bronson, our new boxer (pics soon!).


As seen on Miss Dunn in the new ID.
Also, as many of you have read on Queen Marie's blog, Kingdom of Style (or on other blogs that don't even give her credit), Studded and Fringed Tights are also pretty awesome this Fall. Check them out!
