these are my DIY embellished tights, I embellished them with chains.
What I wear; Mint Jacket (consignment store/tokio7 $70), Sass&Bide dress (consignment $45) cardigan Marc by Marc Jacobs (consignment/tokio7 $30) Boots Miu Miu (consignment/tokio7 $90) Tights by me and still in progress haha πŸ™‚

I’m embellishing these tights with chains, thick, thin, silver, gold and copper, I figured out by smartly dividing the weight that the tights don’t run!! With walking around it hold perfectly too, and gives an amazing effect, especially when it gets dark!!

And before I forget.. This Swedish website decided to put my Snout on their street section,

    haha. Thanks your so sweet. I have a thing for red shoes, I’m obsessed with the Wizard of Oz.

    Made my day.

    You would love my hairdresser. He use to work for a fashion magazine, doing model’s hair for runways, etc. He’s so funny, too. It also helps he’s hella hot but he’s gay and married. It’s expensive, well for NE, but I refuse to go anywhere else.

    You should definitely try it! I sent the other one out 2 days ago so you should get it by Monday! As for me.. I’m paranoid with working with bleach because the smell lingers and I have my little Bubba around. I’m a paranoid Mama.. sucks for him!

    Love your scenery too! I miss NYC.. definitely my fav place to visit in the U.S. Esp. during Christmas!

    Eee thank you for commenting on my post, I love your blog, such inspirational posts! You should pay London a visit and if you do I seriously recommend you go to Cha Cha Moon.
    Those tights are amazing, they remind me of the Doo Ri tights a bit (in the sense of sewing things onto tights).
