Every time I see someone wearing white tights (online), it is accompanied by a negative comment. There is always at least one person who says they make their legs look like sausages. It’s always sausages. Well, I have been the object of that ridicule on more than one occasion, but I refuse to give in. I like how they look, sausage legs or not.

Outfit details:
vintage beret with vintage brooch (both from my mom’s store)
peter pan collar top – Lux (second hand, Beacon’s Closet)
thrifted belt
vintage gloves (also from mom’s store)
thrifted lace slip skirt
thrifted white tights (new in packaging from target; bought at salvation army)
nine west bow heels
vintage purse (!!!! my favorite; a gift from my mom)
Obama pin:)

makeup details:
too reddish brown brow pencil (stupid purchase; I should stick with the tried and true)
rimmel blush
MAC skinfinish (Light)
MAC blacktrack fluidline and stilife paint on eyes
Estee Lauder lipstick in Fig (thanks, Penelope!)

I have a long night/day of Thanksgiving cooking ahead of me. Yet, here I sit, telling you all about my outfit. Oh well.

  1. A+ outfit, my dear. I love the beret and the skirt especially. I was thinking of buying white tights to go with a dress I have, but I had no idea people thought they looked bad. Just goes to show you how fashionable I am.

  2. p.s. I never really understood the “sausages” thing, but I see it all the time, and have had more than one person tell me my legs looked like sausages in white tights. I don’t remember most sausages being white, but I guess one person said it and it stuck. I agree that it makes a doll-like appearance and I also concur that it’s a good thing;)

  3. MAC makes several different skinfinishes. This one in particular is a “natural,” so it’s basically like pressed powder, except smoother and more natural looking (on me). It has comes in different shades, has sheer coverage (if you use a fluff brush) and basically just keeps me from getting shiny.

    The other skinfinishes are pretty and shimmery and are used for highlighting, bronzing or blush. Most of them are discontinued or were limited edition. I have a few of them and they’re staples for me.

  4. White tights remind me of dressing up on Sundays in pretty dresses and going out to late lunches afterwards. That was the best part of my childhood so I love them.

    You pull off the tights wonderfully. Gorgeous outfit.
