Jessica Halabi hand-painted one-of-a-kind tights
Paired with VV Boutique pieces
I won these amazing designer tights at the Next Gen event where I had the chance to meet the talented local designer herself!
Since I wore paint splatter print originally in 1985 before Jessica was born, I wondered if I should be wearing them now, but if I can rock the top knot, I can rock the tights.
I figured, I work in preschool. Where if not there are painted clothes perfectly acceptable?! I did the crab walk, I bum scooched, I sat on the floor, I sat on tiny chairs, I walked the halls. Everywhere I went today, people complimented me on my tights. AND, when I was walking into the school, someone said, "Are those Jessica Halabi tights?" Then they rolled out a red carpet and I sauntered in.
It looked great with my hounds-tooth coat, and when I slipped into mom-mode later (i.e., out of my fantastic tights before they could get snagged by my ever-so-careful children), it still felt... cool. It said: I was just wearing designer tights but now I'm ready for my "look, she shops at the grocery store for herself" candid paparazzi shots.
You'd think I have a lot of time on my hand judging from my inner dialogue.
Everything came together today in two great ensembles! If all the kids I encountered go home and paint-splatter their clothes, blame Jessica Halabi for being so creative and inspiring, not me!
