The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Sometimes your kids buy you the darndest things, like these Xhilaration tights from the junior department at Target, for my 49th birthday.
Now I’m completely in love with patterned tights, and wondering where I can get patterned hose appropriate for spring and summer. I know bare legs are in, and acceptable in many business environments, but not so much in law firms and conservative offices – or court. Also, bare legs are not always the most flattering look for women of a certain age to pull off, especially with shorter skirts.
But I seriously hate regular panty hose, their texture and their weird attempt at skin color.

Yes, my skirt is a bit askew. To make it fit, I had to flip the waistband over, and use one of Mina’s wonderful Fasheners, http://www.fasheners.com/, to secure the waist band. We don’t have an abundance of thrift stores locally. I’m thinking about exploring eBay for some deals on a few classic but colorful skirts in the right size (unfortunately size 2 right now), and would love to hear some tips from readers who regularly get good deals on eBay.

Do any of you wear patterned hose in lighter colors in warmer weather, and can you recommend some good sources to buy them? I’m hooked!
