If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you might have seen that I went out earlier this week wearing some brilliant new tights. From fledgling Irish brand Stop and Stare, the tattoo tights are inspired by and created for women who wish to express their daring side, while staying elegant and feminine. Founders Daria and Marina bring their experience in hosiery retail, fashion design and textile production together to produce hosiery that really does make people Stop and Stare. In fact several of my friends stopped in their tracks when my picture came up on their social media feeds thinking I had taken the plunge and had a real tattoo and they commented as such.
I have three different designs and chose my outfit around this pair, deciding that my pompom midi dress and nude shoes would show the design off to its fullest, the length of the dress drawing the eye to my lower leg.
The tights are excellent quality in a shade that would suit the majority of skin tones. There is plenty of stretch and they have kept their shape beautifully even after hand-washing. They are something new and a little unusual and I absolutely love them. They can be shipped internationally and are also stocked by my friends at My Stockings, who have for some months now been very generous in sending tights and stockings to me.
It was a little blustery when we took these photographs…
My white leopard print wrap bracelet is from Lizzy O and is also available in tan leopard. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of animal print. Perfect for spring and summer, and in my book at least, animal print is a neutral and works with everything.
And this crossbody bag/clutch was an impulse buy after seeing it on my blogging friend Nikki’s post about The British Preppy Look. I had been looking for a blush-coloured bag for some time and this fitted the bill.
