Let's talk about tights. I think they're great in theory: they can be opaque or patterned, they make it possible to wear dresses and not shave your legs (guilty as charged), they keep your legs warm (debatable) and make an outfit look put together.
And here's why I only like tights in theory: This is the only pair of tights I haven't ruined after wearing them one time. It's heartbreaking. Without fail, I will snag, run or accidentally poke a nail through a brand new pair of tights and sigh dramatically as I realize that in my hand I'm holding twelve to fifteen dollars that would have been better spent elsewhere.
Eventually, I gave up on spending more for the slim chance they may last and started buying Target tights figuring they were cheaper to replace. Somehow, these black ones have stood up against my apparently rough nature and I can confirm that they are still unscathed as I write this.
Here's to you, Target tights.
