OOTD :: of fishnets and neckties

So I tried to cheat the magic hour and started my photo shoot at 9am instead of 10. As you can see, the results were not ideal.

Sigh.

My husband says when I get 500K followers and they each contribute a dollar for the privilege of reading my blog, then he’ll build me a light studio. Needless to say, you all are just gonna have to bear with my shoddy lighting.

Which is unfortunate because I really wanted to show off the glory that are these tights. They’re faux fishnets and I love them to pieces! This is what happens when Jan @ Fort Smith Stylista posts a fab pair of her own blue tights and, being the OCD gal that I am, I proceeded to scour the internet for a similar pair. No luck on the argyle, but boy howdy do I adore my fishnets!

Of course, now that I’ve waxed ecstatic about my legwear, I’m gonna throw you for a loop and reveal this week’s theme. Not leg-related at all. Rather, my intrepid TA suggested it and so I give you, my friends: Fit To Be Tied.

No, no, I’m not angry or agitated. More like I’m going to incorporate some sort of tie/bow/knot into my ensembles all week. The idea was borne of my mentioning to my TA the best compliment ever that I received last Friday: one of my students said I reminded her of the 10th Doctor (because I was wearing this). I jokingly said it’s too bad I wasn’t in full 10 regalia, and my TA said why not do a tie week and thus, a star is born. So to speak.

For Visible Monday, then, I flaunt my gams in a pair of faboo tights and up the ante with my fave Vivienne Westwood tie. I was gonna blue it all up with a cobalt blazer but my precocious daughter said it was too in-your-face, and I did want the focus to be more on the fact that I’m wearing a tie than that I’m sporting vibrant blue, so camel cardi it is.

  1. Fit To Be Tied … that could be fun! Thank you for the shout out. I love your tights, and may well spring for the Vestra pair. I’ll look forward to watching you tie on on. Make you huz put that deal in writing. You might do it!

  2. I’ve been known to wear a tie in my day. I’d wear one to the office now, but it’s so casual there that even the men don’t wear ties. Still, wearing it loose and casual like yours just might work.

    Love the tights!

    • Ah, but isn’t it always good to be just a little overdressed? Sometimes, I feel so lucky to work in a profession and a school that allows me such freedom of sartorial expression.

      I know, right? Am thinking of buying more…

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
