19.05.12 :: How I wore my... Dainty Diana @Tightsplease @redordeadlondon Lace Hold-up detail tights, a @Topshop Pretty Floral Playsuit & @LamaPeach Boots
This post was supposed to be published yesterday… oops.
But too much photography and a couple of tasty @AlmanackHighX mojitos whilst editing photos makes a girl tired…
And… as of getting back home after another MEGA day at 8pm last night, I couldn’t bear the thought of sitting at my computer screen for any longer.
However, yesterday, as part of the #HighcrossFashion Week I was invited to interview the gorgeous stylist @AnnaMoorStylist of The Stylist London - check her out .
(My interview with her will be up in the next couple of weeks on my other blog: http://lucieloveshighcross.tumblr.com)
As soon as I heard I was to interview a Stylist I was like arghhhh!?!??!
Fashion Panic mode set in.
I knew that I would be running around like a headless chicken all day photographing the HFW Live Show’s and needed to wear something comfortable, but still look like I’d made an effort.
In the end… I opted for my pretty Suzie LOVE floral playsuit from Topshop, £38 (in S/M) and decided to try it out with my cute new Red or Dead ‘Diana’ tights from TightsPlease. They are 50 denier, so kind of sheer, but still provide great coverage and warmth. I loved the cute little lace printed suspender detail and got quite a few appreciative comments from the ladies and shocked glances from the menfolk when wearing them to photograph the Highcross Style Lounge Event.
But… you’re only young once!
I liked pairing the tights with the playsuit as the fun floral print added a sweet girly feel to the rather raunchy looking tights. I added my YBD Lama Peach Paige Boots for a touch of necessary leg lengthening height as well as comfort. To accessorise I wore my pale peach coloured pearl necklace - a gift from my mum - and a stack of gold bracelets and pink #BromptonPlace @Nailsinc Polish.
Boyfriend’s thoughts: “They were tights and they looked nice.” Says it all really.
I suppose it’s true what they say: You wear the clothes you wear to impress other women and to make yourself feel good… the boyfriend couldn’t care less if you were wearing a bin bag.
The Red or Dead Diana Tights with Lace Hold-up Detail were £12.49 now £9.99 with free UK delivery.
