I'm sure by now you've heard that Pantone declared Emerald the color of 2013. I'm not as excited about it as I was for Tangerine Tango in 2012, but I'm sure emerald will make it's way into my wardrobe this year.
Actually, it already began with this skirt. I was drawn to the high waist and subtle pleats on the back, along with the muted emerald color. It's easy to pair existing pieces with it, rather than working with a particularly bright green skirt.
I was excited to wear these tights, as well, however these went straight into the trash can after I shot this. First of all, they were size "s/m or m/l" which isn't exactly clear. I thought that was strange when I bought them, but I assumed they would be the stretchiest tights I'd ever wear.
Not the case. They were way too short, and I'm not even all that tall. They were also crazy thin, so the tugging to try to stretch them long enough caused a few runs.
Anyway, don't buy them. But if you see any other polka dot tights like these, let me know. I'm a pretty big fan.
