braving the blue

 

i had asked for these blue tights of Leg Love by Kate Torralba from my manito (Secret Santa) for Christmas...and luckily, he found it. and now, when i think about it, it is such a bold shade of blue. an eye-catcher you might say. i wore this once with dotted tights over them (here!) and they looked subtle then -- and that was for a vudu party.

so...i gathered all my courage and decided to wear them for work as i also needed a boost of confidence from the effects of work blunders last Tuesday. people stared. people were shocked and nearly dropped their jaws...i even had one agent ask me why i'm wearing such blue tights. and it kept me smirking the whole time because some people looked so funny trying not to stare in the elevator (in such a small space!)... nevertheless, i loved wearing these tights. despite everything, i stood out and i was myself again. who cares if they can't understand.

i want to talk some more but my puppy is on my lap and has his head on my right arm. he gets mad when i type too loudly..haha!

Ah, love the color! Do you work at a call center? I used to work at one in Cebu, but didnt last for long, my ADD wouldnt allow it, haha. The tights are perfect considering its been really breezy in Cebu.. I was freezing today waiting for a cab.

Orchid Grey said...

beautiful tights, you stand out in the best way possible!

I'm such a bookworm too!
The author of Empire Falls is Richard Russo; it's SUCH a good book. It's a bit slow in the beginning, good but slow moving, and then it begins to pick up pace, and the last 100 pages are just like "Whoa."
And I have read Wicked, but I haven't read the other two books. I read it in eighth grade, so some of certain areas confused me, but perhaps I'll give it a try again now that I'm older and can probably understand better!
