It's time for my Annual Tights Clean Out And Organization.
Every September, I go through all of my tights and try all of them on. Yep, all of them. I make sure they are still:
1. Comfortable- not too tight or too loose, not scratchy, no irriating seams
2. Attractive- no holes or runs, no pilling, not worn out, still up to date colors and opaqueness or sheerness
Here is what I discovered this year: I forgot do this last September.
I can hardly be blamed, I was planning a WEDDING for pete's sake. But it means my job this year has been a difficult one.
Here is a picture of my tights wardrobe, by the numbers...
Total pairs I started with: 38
Pairs I am returning because they are still in their packaging: 4
Pairs I am giving away because they are unworn but unreturnable and it turns out I am not a sparkly tights kind of girl: 1
Pairs I tossed (attention environmentalists: this is HOSIERY, people, it can't be donated if it's used): 14
Pairs I am keeping: 19
Pairs I bought: 6 (review of these Tights From Heaven coming soon to a blog post near you)
Total pairs I have for the season: 25
Storage right now: each pair,
Permanent storage solution I am still searching for: 1
