I've been wanting thick striped tights forever now and can never find them. They just appear places to taunt me. I tried to order some from American Apparel and they were back-ordered for MONTHS and then they finally emailed me saying "Oh, sorry, we ran out. Here's your money back." Psht!
I tried to paint my own with fabric paint the other day. I didn't have any white or cream opaque tights so I tested it on a weird sheer champagne colored pair that I was going to throw out. The paint seemed to stay so I should try it on a pair of opaque. The thing is...I went to the only place in town that I could think of that might sell them and they OF COURSE don't have tights, only weird control top panty hose in "nude". Um. Help. Me.
Estherville, Iowa is not the shopping mecca it claimed to be when it begged me to move here. Haha ok I kid, I kid. But seriously.
