There's Something About Mini...

I recently forced myself to buy black tights and a black mini skirt. I was sure that I'd retreat to jeans as usual and they would lay untouched in my closet. But little did I know that when I put them on with my Rolling Stone's tee shirt I would love the look. I am only five feet tall and the idea of wearing long skirts and dresses makes me imagine a loss of height I barely have. My mother picked out most of the other skirts I own. When she handed them to me I always commented on how small they looked. She insisted that they wouldn't be small on me. They are about an inch above my finger tips. I still feel that they are dangerous to sit down in so black tights are a must. Its a sophisticated sexy in that I'm showing the shape of my legs but not the skin.
When I was in my awkward "I want to wear mens clothes to disappear completely" phase skirts were forbidden to me. I was far too used to wearing my brother's dowdy t-shirts and buying baggy jeans. That look was painfully far away from chic. Thank God I discovered Nylon magazine in seventh grade. In a chic tomboy twist I will wear my cut off shorts with tights. That would have looked great in my skateboarding days...

If the black tights are truly thick, opaque with no flesh showing, they will serve you will...
