Health Warning

Jacket Next, , Boots Dune, Earring Primark, Tights Henry Holland


These tights need to come with a health warning "Might Give Grannies a Heart Attack" lol I wore these yesterday and lets say ladies and gentleman of a certain age were a little freaked out by them which is a bit strange as M&S a favourite shop of the older generation did there own version check them out here. I ended up feeling a little embarrassed by the end of the day anyway they ended up with four ladders in them so they are now safely in the bin where they will not cause anymore offence. It is so strange the power of clothes have dont you think???

  2. I have those! They are so wonderful! And trust me, it's nothing compared to me going in a church (it was a tour) in a cyber gothic outfit. Two old ladies did the whole cross thing and giving the evil eye!
    Lot's of people just don't dare anything and expect others to dress down like them :/

  5. I love those tights but know what you mean. I have another version of those and I swear, you would think I walked out of the house naked!!! They were more impactful than wearing the tiniest shorts on a bare leg.

  6. Great look, I love these tights but I agree...worn in daylight, people tend to think they are lingerie...

  12. I own the same tights too, and I agree, once I went to a club and a group of girls look at me and yelled so loud Oh My Goodness, and start whispering (in a loud voice that everyone in the bar can hear) "what is she wearing"
    I cant believe how weird people are sometimes

  17. I say screw the grannies that were offended by your tights! But you are right though, it is funny how the clothes we wear stir certain reactions in people. People tend to paint a picture of you straight away.

    By the way, I am very jealous of you chest of drawers and your wooden chest!
    God I sound like such a granny!!!

  21. How funny!! I think you look amazing as always. I've wanted a pair of those tights for ages. I guess I'm quite lucky that I'm blind as a bat and I don't wear my glasses unless I'm reading or watching tv so I generally miss all the weird looks my friends say I get when we are out and about! My Mum lives in Saudia Arabia and has to wear an abaya all the time and carry a head scarf in case her hair offends a man and she has to cover it up! My Mum is a classic dresser and alway modest so her actual clothing would never cause offense but she is still forced to wear a big black floor length sheet over her outfit (she bought a Chanel one with gold studs all over it to make up for having to wear it all the time!)the power of clothing really is amazing x

  25. lool. aww bless you. they say action speaks louder than words, but these days since fashion makes a statement, and i think the impression they got from those tights were the wrong once.
    At the end of the day you should feel comfortable in what you wear, clearly after those looks you didn't. well you looked nice still. and datz a good point.
    :D

  27. I really love those tights (I just ordered them via Asos, are they that bad quality, that they ladder that easy?) Usually I don't mind scaring people anyway :p
