for some reason i've never been a huge fan of tights -- at least, not the ones that aren't opaque black and boring. i love how colored, patterned, and textured tights look on other people, but for some reason the look has never translated well into my wardrobe. however, after stumbling upon these amazing looks from madewell, i think i've changed my mind. i love how these patterned tights are both whimsical and subtle (in a flattering, basic black), and they add so much texture to velvet skirts, shimmery dresses, and patent oxfords. these ensembles are perfect for the holiday season, from dinner parties to shopping excursions! top off the looks with some of madewell's gorgeous new jewelry; piles of glimmering gold and crystals add the perfect finishing touch.
but it gets better: obviously i'm a huge fan of madewell (seen here and here) -- and now i'm now one of their campus representatives at IU! yay! my job entails lots of promotions, including exclusive discounts for my stylish friends and peers. i'll have you know that aside from the clothing and jewelry pictured above, the rest of their holiday collection is to die for as well - and we thought it was the perfect opportunity for a flash sale!
