I wore "bit" of red yesterday in honor of my Giants, who trounced another team on their way to the NFC Championship game - you're next, 49ers!
This is my first foray into colored tights - a trend that until now I've really been deathly afraid of. I'm a big fan of bright colors but the candy-coated leg hues seemed a little too in-your-face intentional to me, a little young. Plus I have a personal thing on tights and shoes that don't match - it's just one of my weird personal sartorial quirks.
Because I had loads of fashion quirks - Like until recently, gold and silver accessories couldn't co-mingle. Or if it is a brown-tone, then my belt and shoes need to match. Skinny pants must be paired with a long top or jacket. I can't wear earrings, necklaces and bracelets all together. Unless they are the bermuda type, then shorts can only be paired with flats or wedges. For proper business attire, my hair must be pulled up. Navy doesn't get paired with grey or brown, unless it is more like a camel or tan. I could go on, but your eyes will start watering.
This kind of color I can live with - kind of. Gloomy weather has brought about terrible lighting, so you can't really tell how bright I feel these tights are, but only exposing a bit of leg and keeping everything else toned down keeps this in the wearable realm for me, and doesn't make me resemble a cast member from Disney Clubhouse. Sure, some of you ladies may retch for a variety of pretty legit reasons, but for some reason, this is acceptable to all the funny rules in my head.
Do you have any personal style rules that you abide by? What are your quirks?
