Tights on a tight budget

Sitting around with my boy on the couch today I shot my question: ‘Are the ladders in the tights fashionable?’. He looked at me like I would have 3 heads… I shouldn’t really be surprised.


Where did the (it could seem - unreasonable) question come from? Well I see women with the ladders in their tights for weeks now. They seem to have invaded Dublin city so the only thing that comes into my head (as when that normally happens) is… a new trend.


Yes, I do know that all sorts of unusual tights are in. We go flowery, we go for stripes, hearts, dots… you name it. We also wear ripped tights, no news there. But what I’m talking about are real ladders. They don’t look like they were intended. Neither the location, nor the size. They’re out of place on the teenager, mid-30’s and a respectable elderly leg. Yet somehow they belong!


Shall I dig out a ripped pair of my beloved hearted tights out of the rubbish right now or am I just looking too close at Irish women’s legs at the times when even tights could be on a tight budget…?

Not so summery...yet

As the weather outside my window and my sore knee gave me no choice but to spend a day on a couch (the uncomfortable one, I just got a bigger, better one but still waiting for my boy to sort it out, hopefully today...) I can't help it but day dream of a summer. Ok so it's rainy outside, so what, in a weeks time it could be scorching hot!


So just to make sure I’m ready I’ve been putting together a collection of summer stuff. Out of the window went my confusion re: hats and I got a straw hat myself :D Never say never ;) Few other little bibs and bobs and I only hope for the weather now ;)







Sorry for lack of imagination in the arrangement, I have a sore knee ;)


Polaroid

I'm quite a photography fun but lacking self motivation and never being quite happy enough with my photographs I only go back to them from time to time, do something and unsatisfied give up for another while.

I like giving my pics a bit of an edgy look and I always laugh that I prefer imperfect photographs. Cause I do!

Chick Named Hermia, I owe you big time. I downloaded the program you talked about, it’s sooo easy and sooo cool (love the sound!). I’ve been playing around with few pics and surprisingly I think pics of Dub look best in it!

Here’s a sample of my art ;)



Give it a go guys, it's great fun.
