jail break

Sweetest Somethings  on top: H&M sweater (current) on bottom: Gap skirt  in-between: Ann Taylor tights, Urban Outfitters bag, Michael Kors booties, Gorjana & Dogeared necklaces

Sometimes being a style blogger isn’t as glamorous as it seems, (that is, if you think it’s glamorous at all).  Sometimes, you get all ready, put on your favorite polkadot tights and head out only to cut your knee so it’s bleeding and ruin your favorite tights completely.  Ripped tights might not seem like a complete tragedy to you, but that just means you don’t wear tights that much.  I’m am avid tights wearer and having to throw these away was pretty devastating.  At least I got these pictures before hand.

Something about this striped sweater from H&M against the chain link fence made me think of being in jail.  However, I’ve watched Shawshank Redemption enough times to know they don’t let you wear red skirts or your favorite suede heels in jail.

    Love black and white with red- it’s a favorite combo of mine. Those booties are amazing!

  • Tara

    I HATE when I rip a good pair of tights. I don’t even want to think about how much money I spend every year replacing tights. Hopefully you can find a replacement pair!

  • Jenn

    oh ripped tights are the worst! The only way that it could make me even more upset is if it happened mid day at work. Tears.

    I’m sad you tore those tights–they’re so adorable! If it makes you feel any better, I took a spill right before an outfit post photo session once too. Had to “cancel” the entire thing (mostly because my hand was bleeding haha).

    I can totally relate to the less than glamorous aspects of picture taking troubles… namely too much wind or not enough light to get a good shot.

    I love the polkadot tights with that red skirt!
