Pantyhose?

I've written about this red vintage dress from Salvation Army before, but it deserves two posts because it is so SUBLIME! I usually wear black shoes with this dress, but I need new black shoes.  And our kids need black shoes for their homeschool fine arts concerts.  So guess who doesn't get new black shoes right now?  Me, that's who.  Well, I was browsing Instagram and I saw a video of a  model wearing a Michael Kors red dress with camel colored shoes.  Hey!  I have camel colored shoes!

But then the dilemma arose of what to wear on my legs.  I know it's cool to wear bare legs, but no way...not gonna happen on a cold Michigan winter day.  I talked to my young and hip friend Trina and asked her input.  Because she is young and hip.  And I'm questioning wearing nude hose.  Who wears pantyhose anymore?  My grandma used to wear pantyhose every day with her dresses.  Every. Day.  And even at 90 she had great legs.  But do ladies under 90 wear pantyhose anymore?!  All I see are colored tights and that's all I have in my dresser.  But Trina said she wore nude tights a couple of weeks ago.  I think nude pantyhose are what she meant when she said nude tights.  She calls pantyhose tights.  Because she is young and hip.

I decided to do a search with Google.  Because apparently, Google knows a lot more than me.  Or you.  The question that is going to keep me up at night if I don't find the answer, dear Google, is..."does anyone wear pantyhose anymore?".  I didn't find a lot of examples of pantyhose wearing images.  Well, except for creepy ones.  And FYI...don't Google "nude pantyhose".  But guess who does wear pantyhose?  Kate Middleton, that's who.  The  Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, and the Baroness of Carrickfergus.  Yeah, did you know those are all of Kate's titles since her marriage?  Me either.  Until Google informed me.

So if my young, hip friend Trina wears nude tights and Kate the Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, and the Baroness of Carrickfergus does too, then guess who wore nude tights?  Me, that's who.  I wore nude tights (aka pantyhose for all you ladies from the eighties).

And I must give a big shout out to my husband.  I was under the weather yesterday afternoon and evening, feeling pretty crummy.  And since I didn't have anything but colored tights in my dresser, guess who went to the store and bought me nude pantyhose?  My husband, that's who.  What a guy!  And when he called from the store and asked what control top meant, it's like I fell in love all over again.
