When did RiverIsland decide to make tights only for skinnies? After weeks of searching for pale grey tights I was overjoyed when, on a whim, I nipped in to check out their hosiery selection and found EXACTLY what I was looking for. I was less overjoyed when, on getting dressed this morning, I found that the tights aren’t designed for we larger ladies. At £6 a pair I was expecting a higher level of quality and a degree of stretch. I was expecting Topshop quality tights – stretchy, spacious, velvet-soft and rich in colour. These tights, when I had finally persauded them up over my thights, left my legs looking somewhat sausage-like – stuffed into a too tight casing. I was forced to replace them with my £2 Primark stripeys – which, incidentally, DO fit a curvier frame.

Sorry for the somwhat blurry pictures – still waiting to hear from Sony about my beloved camera!
As it was raining and I really hate being wet all day, I decided it was actually a wellies day, and tucked my clean hair into a beret to save it getting frizzled in the drizzle (fo’ shizzle!). It worked!
