Panty Who Knows?

suntan pantyhose & white sandals--nothing more to be said.

(Erika/Mom) Since winter has decided it doesn’t want to leave the party, we are still faced with crappy weather in mid-April. That means our alabaster legs must be covered with something. Jeans usually do the trick but every once in awhile some inconvenient dressier occasion (like Easter Sunday) brings back the old familiar agony–pantyhose or no pantyhose?

My ears still ring with the embarrassed whisper of a colleague back in the mid 90s who told me that “um, no one wears suntan pantyhose anymore.” What? How come no one told me? I’ve been paranoid ever since. Eventually I came up with two solutions–find the absolute sheerest of the sheer hose or lose myself in trusty opaque tights.

I can’t always rely on Lizzi for objectivity. The idea of wearing pantyhose is so coming-of-age that she can’t resist, even if the object of desire is suntan-brown and comes in an egg. But she has opened my eyes to the possibilities of leggings and tights in other colors than black.


(Lizzi) For a while, I thought, “Wow! Pantyhose are a great solution to having “bare” legs during cold weather!”

But then I discovered “NOW”: bright tights and leggings. 

Now, you’re probably thinking, “Alright. You told me to wear bright tights. But, how?”
