Snakes On A Skirt

top: Loft; skirt: NY & Co (thrifted); belt: Forever 21; bracelet: Charlotte Russe; shoes: Aldo; tights: crap via TJ Maxx

I experimented a little with using the flash when I took these pics. The pic on the left is no flash and the pic on the right is with flash. There are positives and negatives about both. If I had more professional editing tools, I am sure I could light the no flash pics in a way that I liked. Right now I just use PhotoScape. At the moment I don't have the funds to purchase Photoshop.

I really like this blouse. I bought it the weekend before the challenge started at The Loft. They had 30% all regular priced merchandise. I needed a nice, white blouse and this one is perfect!

My little dog, chewed a hole in my only pair of black tights. So I broke the rules and bought another pair. I couldn't go 20 without black tights so I went to TJ Maxx. I thought I would be able to find a quality pair there without spending a lot. Apparently, they get rid of their tights after Christmas because they only had one pair left in my size. This pair was on clearance for $4 so I bought them. Well before lunch, I had a large tear in the inside of my thigh. By the end of the day, the tear ran up from my knee to the top of my leg. Awful! So I am going to order a pair from We Love Colors. I am going to order a pair of the MicroFiber Solid Color Tights in black and a pair of the Solid Color Tights in black. I wear tights pretty much year round so I don't want the MicroFiber tights to be so thick I can't wear them to work in the summer. This will be my test of We Love Colors. I hope they are as great as everyone says!

I like the skirt! I buy most of my tights from target and they've all lasted pretty long, and they're cheap!
