fashion tights + style to inspire link up

fashion tights - Thrifting Diva  It’s all about these fashion tights in this outfit.  I literally built this outfit to feature these fun tights.  It’s also a great thing that the weather in San Diego is still very mild (upper 70s and 80s), so I can definitely get away with wearing this outfit both during the day and evenings.

fashion tights - Thrifting Diva fashion tights - Thrifting Diva I picked up these tights from Ross Fashion For Less for $4.99 as an impulse buy as they were right next to the register.  You guys already know about my love for Ross as seen here and here and here.  Their thrifty prices on fashionable items speaks volumes to my budget conscious needs.  Honestly, I have never worn tights like these before because I have always lived on the east coast.
By the time, fall hits in those parts, there is no way I wanted exposed skin for the sake of looking cute.  However, the beautiful San Diego weather has allowed me to step up my fashion game and try out more fall trends.  Thus — these tights!

fashion tights - Thrifting Diva fashion tights - Thrifting Diva Heading out for ladies’ night, I figured I could test drive these tights.   Of course, a mini skirt was a must since I wanted to show off the pattern in the tights.   I thrifted this black Express skirt from a Goodwill in Los Angeles for $2.99 — can you say score!  Going for some color, I went with this red cowl neck Banana Republic sweater, thrifted from the Salvation Army for $4.00.   I added a striped long sleeve shirt underneath.  Of course, that black and white striped shirt was only $1.00 at the United Cerebral Palsy thrift store.  I have a thing for stripes and buy them all the time when I am thrifting.  They are perfect pieces to make an outfit stand out.

  4. Hello blogger, i found this post on 19 spot in google’s search results.
    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by hi bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high bounce rate is
    due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce
    rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will end up,
    so having reasonably low bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.
    There is very handy wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google
