An Anthropologie Adventure

Go enter my GIVEAWAY!

I got these red tights for 50¢ (they’re Hue, which are usually $10-$15 a pair). I almost didn’t get them because the bright color kind of intimidated me and I didn’t know how I would wear them. I figured it’s only 50¢ though, so who cares if I never use them. I think this first attempt was very successful and I’m excited to wear them again. Now I just want to go and find all sorts of fun tights! Have you ever warily made a purchase and then ended up loving it?

Last Thursday, our nearest Anthropologie had a Holiday decorating event where we helped them make decorations for their store. I went with my mom and a few of her employees. We had dinner, went to the event, and then did a bit of window shopping. The event itself was pretty disappointing. We were just cutting and gluing to make 3D triangles. They’re going to turn them into a glittery garland like you see in the third picture. So when we were all tired of cutting out triangles, we left and went window shopping instead. Here are a few pictures from the event (at least we got free cookies, water, and hot chocolate :D ).

    Love those red tights and you got such a good deal on them, that makes them even better!

    The red tights are adorable with the blue polka dot dress & sweater. I just went to Nordstrom yesterday to get some new hosiery & was chatting with the sales associate about the latest trends in hosiery. As I suspected, they are polka dots ( duh), sparkle (yes, that’s everywhere!), fishnets (classic sexy) and colored tights! Let’s see what other colored tights combos you can come up with.

      I really want some polka dot tights! Sparkles sound fun, too. Sounds like I need to go on a hunt for some. :)

    That event looks really fun! And I love those bright red tights – I am actually on the hunt for a cheap pair for our upcoming work holiday party :)
