Today is a good day. It's a snow laden, cake-eating, present-giving kind of day as it's my sisters 17th birthday. Though, between you and me I prefer to think of it as her 10th...again. There's no way she can be allowed to drive already. Frankly, I feel OLD.
Nevertheless, where there's a birthday there's cake and for that I have to be grateful [although I'm yet to see any....*plans kitchen search soon*].
While my sister was opening her presents earlier this morning, I had a wonderful little package to open myself as the lovely ladies at Legs Love sent me a sample from their site.
They sell a whole range of brands and designs, so I was thrilled to get some Pretty Polly tights as I've heard many a great thing about them, but never tried them out!
I have to say that reviews scare me somewhat, in that although I'd always say what I think, there is bound to be a sense of guilt in admitting dislike to something that someone's been kind enough to send you. With these however, I needn't have worried. Seriously. The design is awesome - subtle and very wearable, and the tights themselves are such good quality. They put my Primark polka dots to shame.
The only thing that worried me as I pulled them out of the packet was whether they'd be long enough for me. As soon as I read that they fit up to 5"10 my heart sank a little, and even more when I read that they're one size only - I normally go for XXL [or as big as the shop stocks] so that they stretch to fit my legs comfortably.
The Pretty Polly tights do fit thank goodness, but it did take some complex pulling up moves to get there. You should've seen me desperately trying to pull them on. So attractive. Luckily they look pretty good with shorts, maybe a bit better than with a skirt or dress, so there's no worry of them falling down. Cue sexy pulling up moves again.
So, many thanks to Marianne and Rebecca at Legs Love for sending such a lovely treat! Check out their video here on how to style your outfit with tights this Christmas.
Oh, and just to ruin the blogger illusion, I totally changed into my slippers after taking these photos.
