Wicked Witch of the East tights

Firstly - a moments silence please for my 1950's vintage coat - the drycleaner sabotaged it beyond repair. They offered to refund me the cost of the coat. As if you can refund vintage! Fashion philistines! Never mind.
Matalan is a store which offers fabulous fashion at fabulous prices. I have put together a selection, plus the U.S dollar equivalent.
I have also included a few pics of my Nina Style Fashion Tights.Nina always offers wonderful styling tips, of which this is one.Layering lace/fishnet tights over coloured ones.Fab! The picture quality isn't that great, as I took them myself (my friend was taking too long to come over!) Also I had to twist my legs at a funny angle, so they look like the Wicked Witch of the Easts legs squashed by Dorothy's house.(Plus my claves look enormous (which they are not) so I nearly didn't publish them but I didn't want to break my promise to lovely Nina)
Last, but not least an award from Queen LenkaLovee one of the most lovely and dynamic bloggers on the planet. Hugs to you!

You have such a clever way with words, my friend..and I am so sorry about your vintage coat! That is truly devastating especially for vintage as you have said. :( I do love your bargain items here, especially the high waist trouser!!! I love your tights too, just fantastic!

Thank you so much for your amazing words on my recent post, means so much to me! :)

I sooooooo love this post! You do the tights underneath fishnet stockings a lot better than I! And you've got very drool worthy shoes too! We girls just wanna have fun, right? Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting these pics! Been so MIA because all my attention is on finishing my magazine right now. I will of course share it with you when it's done!

PS I wish I had that black bubble dress. I can totally see myself wearing it!

PPS You totally made my day!

Nina said...

Oh, and I'm so sorry to hear about your ruined coat. I can relate like anything!

Nina said...

I only just realized ... you linked me too! Thank you ... I am beyond, beyond honored!

Michelle said...

Debbie said...

oooh, now you have me just aching to strut out somewhere in the platform heels and bubble dress! And the coat is so classy-there's one from Banana Republic a lot like that I really want.

No Chick-fil-a in England? Sad, sad day. http://www.chick-fil-a.com/#home It's fast food, but ten times better! I'm addicted to it. :-)
