Reader question: Where can I find bright tights?

February 18, 2009

I recently had a reader post a comment asking where she could find fun bright tights that were affordable, would fit well and look great. (I personally love bright tights and think they look amazing on, not to mention I have an entire bin designated for own my colored tights.) Whether or not you order them online or buy them in stores, you can’t ever really try them on, so to make sure you buy the right fit, just read the sizing chart, which is usually located on the back of the packaging. I would also go into the store, like Forever 21, Filene’s Basement, American Apparel or H&M if you have them in your city and check out the selection. Sometimes websites don’t always list everything that is in the actual shop.  To see more, click here to see all the colors of the rainbow from ASOS’s collection. And, click here to see fun ways to wear them!

Here is a roundup of some of my faves.

The creative web that is American Apparel

December 10, 2008

Hello loves! I hope you are all having a lovely Wednesday! I know I am. I have been having great fun pulling together some outfits from the one and only American Apparel. A few days ago, a reader wrote and asked if I could help her come up with some combinations of AA clothes, since she gets a tad overwhelmed when trying to sift through the articles herself. There really are so many options, variations and choices of basically, t-shirts, tanks and stretch pants, (what to pair with what!) so I totally feel her pain! But, after some picking, plucking and tweaking,  I designed three ensembles—with a few  accessories thrown in for some flair—that I hope you will enjoy! Let me know what you think, I would love to hear! SPxx


I really like the simplicity of this look. Actually, I basically own this outfit! I always feel super flirty and fun when I slip on this short, swingy skirt. And, when paired with black tights and closed-toe oxfords (i mean, who doesn’t LOVE oxfords!) as shown, the combo becomes winter-appropo. Bonus: the material of the t-shirt is totally sleep-wear soft!

American Apparel outfit 1

Available at American Apparel…

Unisex Tri-Blend Short Sleeve Deep V-Neck, $22

Thick-Knit Jersey Skirt, $19

Opaque Pantyhose, $14



This get-up is a bit more provocative and daring, but still super fun! I am personally coveting each piece and think this would be the perfect outfit for a night out dancing with the girls. The flat, sensible boots help tone down the sexy-slinkiness of the ballerina-inspired dress, and you can feel a bit more covered up when you layer with the tank, scarf and tights. The hat is just so urban downtown, and a nice masculine touch to a mostly feminine ensemble.

American Apparel outfit 2

Available at American Apparel…

Nylon Tricot Figure Skater Dress, $48

Cotton Spandex Jersey Bra-Cami, $19

Opaque Pantyhose, $14



Isn’t this outfit so upbeat and fun? I love tossing bright hues into the mix, especially in the winter months, when blacks and grays begin to dominate the wardrobe. My favorite piece is the scarf, which is new from AA and is called the Circle Scarf, and can be worn in a plethora of ways—you can wrap this baby ’round your neck or shoulders! As I’m sure you have noticed, I love this versatile belt, it seriously goes with almost everything. And the shoes? Yes, they may be banana-colored, but what a way to make a statement! So, slip them on, grab your tote and shades, and you’re ready to go!

American Apparel outfit 3

Available at American Apparel…

The Unisex Circle Scarf, $28

Stripe Pocket Frock, $41

Opaque Pantyhose in Dove, $14

Bull Denim Woven Cotton Cities Bag, $28

Zoe Split Sunglass, $75

California Fleece Sunglass Case, $5

Cool gifting site

December 9, 2008

we heart itPhoto via we heart it

So, I realized that we are approaching double digits as of tomorrow, which means buying time for holiday gifts is diminishing just as quickly as the sun goes down these days. With that said, I find myself behind the game of creating a decent and helpful gift guide. However, I was alerted to this fabulous site called, Someone Spoil Me, Your Social Gifting Site, which takes care of said dilemma. It has great items for every type of person you might know. I really like the Fashionista list, especially because my coveted bag is on there, and with the holiday discount, it’s 25% percent off! So, readers, when you decide that you would like to buy this bag for me, just enter STYLEWATCH when you check out. OK, that was a joke, but seriously, what a deal! This offer is good until December 21st, so get crackin’!
