Question Time: Is this a fashion faux pas?

I have been living in my opaques on work days.  I do not fit into any of my pre-pregnancy pants and I don't feel like buying any, so I am wearing dresses and skirts to work, and relying on my opaque stockings to keep my legs warm.

I wore flats when I left home yesterday morning to walk TLG to day care and I bought a pair of snakeskin peeptoes with me to wear once I was in the office.  I have been wearing all black peeptoes with opaques and they looked fine.  But this particular combination looks weird to me.

What do you think?  Did I commit a fashion crime?

By the way, I bought the opaque stockings yesterday.  They are Velvet Matte 80 Tights from Ambra and I'm very happy with them.  They're comfortable, look good, and the best part - they have sewn in a tag so I can tell which way is front and which way is back!  Will stock up some more on my next shopping trip.

  1. I don't think you have committed a fashion sin here. I find that you can wear black opaque tights with virtually most shoes (not flip flops though!) and it gives our summer shoes a new lease of life in winter (i.e. peep toes). The snakeskin print also adds a nice contrast in texture and colour. So don't worry - it looks great!

  2. No fashion crime, nothing to see here people... Personally, I don't go there, but I think with the detailing on the shoes, opaques work with them quite well. Not sure about other open toed shoes, though. More about feet getting cold with the weather than anything! I love the Ambra Opaques, but the 200 denier are my favourites. Awesomeness!

  3. Thanks sassandspice and Kitty. I don't know if I will do it again, I was so self-conscious about it the whole day.

  4. The black detailing at the front ties it together with the opaque. I always wear a black peeptoe with opaques, I just get a bit conscious that I won't suddently puncture my tights with my toe nails or something. For 80 denier, they look very dark, I'm also partial to 200. Love the shoes! Where did you get them V?

  5. No, I think it looks great! I love peeptoes with opaques. Plus, it's nice to be adventurous a bit, even if it feels uncomfortable at first. I felt weird wearing black opaques with nude patent flats for a while, but now I quite like it :)
    I think you should keep wearing this combo.

  6. Thank you for another informative site. Where else
    could I get that type of information written in such an ideal means?
    I have a project that I'm just now running on, and I have been on the glance out for such information.

  7. With havin so much content and articles do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

  9. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my
    own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks

  10. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking
    a few minutes and actual effort to make a really good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never
    manage to get anything done.
