Tights Are All About the Color Rage

Happy Tuesday Ocean Dreamers!

So this post is another assignment for my Fashion class, Special Events & Fashion Promotion. I am supposed to do a "mock" layout for a live blog that we hope to have in the spring for Orange Coast College's Fashion department located in the OC. I thought why do a "mock" up version when in fact I have a real blog? So here you go!

Lately I have been seeing tights all over campus, work, and everywhere!
They are definitely in style and work perfectly for the winter time. You can keep your legs covered while staying warm! I personally have a lot of tights in my closet, I love pairing them with a shorter dress or longer shirt, they are so comfy and chic!

I came across quite a few pictures of extreme tights that have many sorts of patterns, designs, and colors. It seems like there is a color rage that is emphasized in our fashion world right now!

I like them and would definitely wear them with a white, tan, or black top or dress. However, not all of us would like to wear tights that scream look at me! :)

What do you think? Would you wear these tights?

These tights aren't as flashy but I loved the pink heels that set them a part!

I really liked how this web site worded the tight trend:

"The choices are fantastic. Everything from fishnets to tassels, glittering, shining, sparkling. Or maybe you prefer a snakeskin pattern? A scroll work design? Plaid? Comic book patterns? Tie dyes? Rainbows? Camouflage? Any way you look at it, the tights of today are available in a vast array of colors & styles to make you think twice before being able to choose just one…or two…or three…"

I love tights and hope you do too! Go and spice up your school, work, or going out wardrobe now!

Marisa Miller - Fave VS Model

I just got done watching The Victoria Secret Fashion Show on TV and now I am all wide awake and pumped! The performances by Black Eyed Peas and Fergi were beyond amazing!

Did any of you watch it? What did you think?

I thought they did a great job, but I was a tad annoyed that their model "search" was a rip off of America's Next Top Model by Tyra Banks. Couldn't they have come up with something more original? Anyway, America's pick was nice. I am happy for the winner.

Believe it or not, I used to dream of being a model when I was in my younger teens. That was until I realized that I wasn't growing beyond 5'6! Darn! Oh well, I can't imagine making it my life style to stay fit and eat well ALL of the time. You really have to admire these ladys' efforts to stay fit and trim. No, I am not supporting skinny models or advocating that this is what I think we should look like. That would be very unrealistic and not to mention unhealthy. I do think though that Marisa is beautiful and hopefully her heart is beautiful too! It is after all their job and they work hard to achieve their VS bods!

Who is your favorite Victoria Secret model?

I love...drum roll please...{duh, I think you already know by all of my pictures but here you go anyway...}

Marisa Miller!!!!!

Here's some amazing pictures of her. She is beautiful.

Wouldn't it be fun being decked out in bows?

Classic pink shirt Marisa to go with PINK by VS!

From what I have heard Marisa seems great in her private life as well. She is very active and likes to surf and loves the ocean. Yes! She is an ocean dreamer, that makes her a winner in my book.
