dirty little angels gonna save my soul

dirty little angels gonna save my soul

dirty little angels gonna save my soul

After getting lasers zapped in my eyes yesterday, I can see!  I've had terrible eyesight for about as long as I can remember (we're talking coke bottle lenses), so to not have to rely on glasses or contacts to find my bedroom door this morning was pretty remarkable.  Only downside was no computer work last night (scary!) and no eye makeup for a week.  The upside is my physical activities are limited for the next week, so more time to spend on the Internet!

So these tights... I actually bought them last year and never quite found the right use for them (mostly out of laziness), but the other day I thought my legwear could use a little sprucing up et voila!  I wore this outfit for an emergency Wine Club meeting at K's place, when B, F, and I invited ourselves over to make her dinner, because she refused to leave the house.  We made her a delicious Italian dinner of prosciutto-wrapped shrimp in sauce and the finest cheeses Whole Foods' "bits and pieces" cheese bin had to offer.  The next morning, K's relatively substantial wine collection was missing!  Where did it go?  We may never know.

I'm very fortunate I don't have to get that done. I love your tights. Have a great weekend!

Anna said...

Love your outfit so much. Those tights are killer!
And yay for lasik. Your eyes could not have been worse than mine! My perscription is -11.50 + I have astigmatism and my contacts dry out me eyes constantly. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix that? I have to carry around a bottle of artificial tears now -_-.
Sometimes I just want to take them out and walk around with blurry vision :P
Congrats though! You look beautiful as always.

Ah Lasik! I've been wanting to get it forever. You have to update (or let me know) on how the healing process is going. Love those tights.

i loved too much the tights. You look stunning, congrats for the eyes ;) hope you enjoy more

Hannah said...

Wow it must be so amazing to be able to see without glasses! Haha the mystery of the missing wine, a pounding headache is often a good clue..

Brittany said...

Yay, lasik! I'm sure that will benefit you very much, I've been trying to confince my dad to do it for years! Those tights are so killer, too! Love how you styled them!

tess said...

wow your tights are fantastic

Diana said...

I am in love with those tights!

I'm considering getting lasik one day, but I really like how I look with glasses. If I did, I might just end up getting ones with non-prescription lenses

Nathalie said...

Congrats on the lasik! I also have really horrible eyesight. I have astigmatism and severe near-sightedness so my glasses make my eye area look really tiny. And one of my eyes hasn't been able to handle the contact lens for the past few months. It's been really frustrating. Lasik does not seem as scary as it used to with the risks involved so hopefully I'm a good candidate for it.
I like the star print tights! I remember Juicy put some red ones in an ad campaign and I've been trying to find them for awhile, but I don't think they were for retail.

Talia said...

These tights build very strong but nice contrast to the whole. The dress goes well with the velvet blazer. I think we should have such pieces in our wardrobes because they are timeless.

Suz said...

love the stockings!!

Julia said...

Isn't Lasik amazing? I had it done 4 years ago and still see like a brand new baby. And I was BLIND before, girl. I've had some ongoing dry-eye issues, but really that's the extent of my problems, and I'd take the dry-eye in a minute over the not seeing. I hope you love it!

Your bright blue dress is stunning. I love that color on you! Wear it more often!

Congratulations on the LASIK. I'm too scared to get it done myself; but it would be so amazing to be able to see clearly without the assistance of contact lenses.

Loving your tights - so fabulous!! :)

Orphaned Apparel said...

I would love (and totally need) to get that done, but am way too chicken. I trust no one, especially when it comes to my eyeballs. lol.

Love your tights!

glad to see that lasik has had some other beneficial effects other than clear eyesight - namely allowing you to surf the internets... about the outfit, the color of this blouse is GORGEOUS on you plus those tights are fantastic!

Oh, these tights are amazing!

I've always been too scared to have laser surgery. Enjoy your extra internets time!

legalstyle said...

I'm totally digging the colbalt velvet combination here. I was so excited to see colbalt all over the nyfw runways. It's always been one of my favorite colors - biased somewhat by it also being duke blue? yes.

Good luck with the lasik!

Leproust Vintage said...

Those tights look fabulous on you! Hooray for getting your eyes zapped! I have been wanting to do that for a while now!

Regarding your comment about my post in which I complained about the length of dresses: I know! You look like a tall gal too....isn't so frustrating the most above the knee dresses look hooker-esque on us?! Drives me nuts! haha
