EBEW: Tights of Color

Being the least crafty person in the blogosphere, I was forced to skip the Everybody, Everywear DIY challenge.  But there was no way I was skipping the tights of color challenge.  Not that I need a reason to wear these teal tights:

These tights are definitely some of my favorite.  I paired the tights (Hue via Macy’s) with a black sweater dress (Madison Leigh via Macy’s) layered over a print skirt (thrifted & re-fashioned, also worn here).  I added black wedge booties (Nine West “Peekaboo” via Piperlime) and a vintage belt (thrifted). 

I think this belt has the coolest buckle:

It’s oxidized* brass and was in this condition when I found it.  Instead of trying to clean it up, I sprayed it with clear spray paint to protect the oxidation and to keep it from rubbing off on my clothes.

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!


Full Disclosure: I think oxidized is the right word, but I’m not a scientist (I don’t even play one on TV) so if I’m using the wrong word, please let me know in the comments.
