As this last week has been a somewhat chilly week for a Joburg Summer, I was inspired to wear these House of Holland Alphabet tights designed for the British tights superbrand, Pretty Polly, which I picked up at New Look on the Lincoln High Street. Knowing little about House of Holland, I was immediately drawn to the craziness of such a pair of tights, knowing that the chances of finding a similar pair here in South Africa were few and far between. As I now know, House of Holland is a British fashion label that combine flamboyant and eclectic style while remaining fashion forward with models like Agyness Deyn wearing their tights! I absolutely love stockings with interesting and unique patterns and these beautiful stockings are now a firm favourite of mine.
This smock dress was made by mother and as usual, I've stolen it out of her cupboard...I've paired the tights with these Cotton On ankle Wedges (a Christmas present), which to me exemplify the concept of 'Ugly-pretty'. I love the lace up ankle boot, which makes me feel like a fashionable little warrior princess. Every girl needs shoes which make her feel fierce and these are mine!
