It's getting to be that time of year again when tights are a girl's best friend. I'm addicted to basic black ones but think it's time to branch out a bit. Hansel from Basel has a really great collection of tights in earthy hues and subtle patterns. I've taken the plunge and ordered the knee pad ones and the pixie ones (the first two pair below). Hopefully I'll have the courage to wear them out in public.
