I destroyed these tights not long after taking these pictures. Caught them on something or other and it practically looked like the whole leg was shredded. I eventually do this to basically all forms of stockings that aren't fortified with cotton or wool or bamboo, so it was just a question of when. Am I the only one with this problem? I think I'm just too much of a roughhouser to keep delicate tights intact. My nails are always dirty, my hands are always dotted with little cuts and scrapes and maybe the occasional kitchen related burn. I'm always sewing or cutting or cooking or squatting on the floor or kneeling on the ground or superglueing or safety pinning or chasing an animal or small human. This probably makes me a bad candidate for tights ownership.
Or it's possible that they just make tights really shitty these days.
I'm glad my wardrobe doesn't have anything in it that can "run." But for what it's worth, those tights looked pretty cool after Cammila ripped them. She rips everything; her shorts, her tights, my old t-shirts. When I first saw that she'd cut the neck out of one of my old t-shirts, I was a bit horrified. Then I saw how good she looked in it. I decided then that she could tear apart anything of mine she wanted...except my heart. Just kidding. But not really. ;)-MC
