I love the animal print tights that Emma is wearing! I like the idea of adding some spice to your legs with tights and leggings.

Hi CC, if you haven't noticed you're a daily read for me! Love the photo with Emma Watson and tights in the fur photo!

Belle de Ville said...

OMG, all that pattern so early in the morning...it's giving me a headache!
Luckily just looking at the luscious grey fur on the Russian model soothed my soul.

Jaime said...

Fishnets are so fun and paired with the right pieces, they create an outfit that's sexy, not sleezy.

Love the Emma Watson shot as well!

Ashley said...

Wow so much amazing leg-wear!!! The leopard print and fishnets are my faves.

Nina said...

All those stockings look hot! I have personally never incorporated stockings into my wardrobe as I feel that it may emphasize my short frame. It would be great to try them though, especially with those great designs!

Jennifer said...

I have been looking for patterned tights this week!! How awesome. I am definitely checking out that website and heading over to Urban Outfitters. (Those graffiti tights are sooo freaking cute).

ZombieLace said...

awe inspiring legware as usual. I have biker shorts on my list for sure, but where to get a decently cheap pair??

Carol said...

Glad tights are staying for summer! I love them!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

oh I'd love to have a fun pair of tights like those with black letters! awesome! xo

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

Lisa Backus said...

Awesome giveaway! I am a huge fan of all the different types of hoisery, they are all so versatile and can really add so much to an outfit!

Wanderlusting said...

Ah, tights. The one good thing about fall/winter. I've tried the funky prints and I don't really have the legs for it, but they can still look nice when tasteful.

I also used to wear fishnets and garters all the time...I should go back to that lol I think my boyfriend misses it!

Terence Sambo said...

u got to admire all of d effort dat go into editorials :o]

Fashion and more said...

Glad not many of the leggings end half way between knee and ankle.

oskarsobsession said...

I love Emma's leopard print tights! I can't imagine where you'd wear them in real life, but they look pretty fierce on her in the spread.

The Seeker said...

Great picks of legwear dear CC.
I'm a bit obsessed with lace leggings, but I can't find them here :(

By the way that was an ilustration on my post about creativity.

All the best

Chessa! said...

I had so much fun with tights this winter and I'm so happy that they trickled into summer as pants and just for fun as tights too...esp given the weird not-summery weather we had for a while in NYC. I hope I win! and btw, Emma Watson looks AMAZING. I almost didn't recognize her when I saw her. when did she grow up? beautiful girl. love all of the photos that you shared, as always. you know I love it here. xx

Hi Carrie :P
I love these tights! I wish I had some sexy legs to wear them! I'm addicted to black for the slimming effect, but I love some of these prints. They are super-cool.

I love how even though hoisery covers the leg, it accentuates it and makes it sexy!
