Tight Fit

This morning, I was again photographed by Xiaohan of Sydney street blog XSSAT. I'm certain those photos will appear here soonish, along with the terrible answers I gave in the post-shoot interview (I had Sunday morning brain freeze). Afterwards, I found myself still in the mood to play dress-up (when am I not?) With temperatures having hit the high thirties in Sydney all week, a much-needed cloudy day meant that I was able to shimmy around our courtyard in not one, but two pairs of tights, without my legs melting.


Scarf: From a Hibernian House Market
Dress: Stolen from a lovely friend (for a day)
Belt: Anglicare
American Apparel Gold Tights: A birthday present from my Mother
Holy stockings: Home made from a pair of department store stockings

oooh the combination is great
i love your 'holy leggings' :p
it's kinda funny cause they're holy as in they have holes, but they're also gold and shiny like the holy grail or something x)

Great to find such a stylish Aussie! Your leggings are great, how do you put up with them in the heat! I'm melting up here, no matter what I wear.

Inspiring! I wanted a pair of gold tights so bad, but was nervous I would look like I belonged at a '80s disco. I didn't even think about laying on some black sheers. Thanks for the inspiration.

Thank you so much ladies and gent. Rissa, I don't really! It was a very uncharacteristically cloudy day. Chic, if I lived in an '80s disco it definitely wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. In fact, I'm pretty sure it would be totally awesome.
