Sometimes you go to write a post, a bad play on a song pops into your head, and you just have to roll with it and make it your title, am I right?

But really, let’s talk about tights, baby. More importantly the royalty of all tights- We Love Colors. As a self-proclaimed color-lover, I feel like kindred spirits with the creators of this company. In fact, I wouldn’t mind living in their warehouse, amongst all the tights and beautiful dyes, it would be like a kid in a candy store.

Did you know that We Love Colors dyes all of their own tights? They stock all the pairs in white and then dye them in house, which I think is pretty cool. I work in a print shop so I learn more about the complexities of color management every day. Keeping it in house means they have more control over the consistency in colors, and the more hands on a business is with their product, usually means better quality!

I bought my first pairs of We Love Colors tights over 5 years ago, and they are still going strong. I’m not picky about where I get my tights- I usually just buy what I like, but it’s nice to have some quality pairs that you know are going to last and you don’t have to worry about them ripping every time you put them on. I was really excited to find out they carry some patterns like polka dot tights and I want to order some more, once I can narrow down the colors…

    I know exactly what you mean about pop song titles and blogging… I have that problem, and also have to stop myself from making bad puns all too frequently!

    Neat! I’ve dyed my own tights before with Rit – which is a lot of fun.

    I’m super impressed with these five-year-old tights!
