In Which She Loves Her Rodarte Inspired Tights

While scouring the internet to find an affordable version of the Mulleavy sisters' amazing but elusive spider web tights, I came upon this post on A Girl Brushed Red. A talented young woman named Samantha has mastered the enviable task of creating a DIY version and is selling them in her Etsy shop. I was immediately smitten. As someone who has no knitting or crocheting skills and been searching high and low for holey Rodarte-esque tights that don't resemble torn fishnets, I didn't hesitate to email Samantha with my measurements for a custom-made pair. A few days later they arrived in all of their glory, sexy thigh highs with hot pink ribbon tied flirtatiously around the top. I can't remember the last time I was this excited to receive a handmade item in the mail. They look identical to the runway versions, fit perfectly, come in a variety of colors (hot pink, purple, green, etc.) and are about 24 times more affordable. Thank you Samantha!
