mermaid tights + Swedish Hasbeens

My “Style” board is definitely the board that gets the most use on Pinterest (with Design & Illustration close behind), but rarely to I actually click through and buy something. I mostly use it for inspiration, and look for new ways to put together pieces I already have.

These tights were an exception, because when I clicked the link they were about $5 on ebay. Kind of a no-brainer. Yeah, they aren’t the highest quality, but I’ve worn them a few times without any snags or leaving a trail of glitter, so I’d say I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth.

mermaid tights + Swedish Hasbeens

When my best friend was in town in January, we went shopping one afternoon at Buffalo Exchange. I was hoping to find a cheap version of a moto jacket and for some weird reason I did. Shopping 2nd hand doesn’t usually work like that, but hey- I’ll take it.

I have a couple more of these necklaces in the shop, they are rough cuts of quartz hanging from a copper chain. I had to keep one for myself because they seriously go with everything.

I hope you’re having a good week, and enjoying March so far- it is my favorite month!

    Gah, gorgeous, just gorgeous! I love that top to bits…kind of 60s beatnik which is perfection in my book. Really really digging how you incorporated the mermaid tights. I’m a huge sucker for tights with a print or design on them, but kind of get stuck on times with styling them. Gosh you really nailed it here lady!

    Yeeeea! I LOVE fun tights! I’m getting really bummed that it’s getting to be hotter out because that means tight season is almost past us:(

    Great find!

    Yeah tights only last so long anyway and $5 is a steal! This pair is just so cool. I think I may need to get a pair later on this year when it gets cool again.
