green with envy

Good Ol’ St. Paddy’s day is just two days away. And while we admit to indulging in a shamrock shake or a green beer at least once, we’d like to shift the focus of the holiday from green colored beverges to kelly-colored fashions.

They give us the chance to wear our favorite filmy frocks year-round without looking ridiculous… or freezing our gams off. They’re practically magic. The best ones, we think, accentuate an outfit without distracting from it.  This season, we’ve shelved our bright tights of years past and replaced them with a repertoire of classic sheer and black patterns.
