Funny story about these tights.  Last week a reader (Hi, Aparna!) asked me where I got these tights.  “Target!  Merona brand!” I answered confidently.

When I got home and changed I quick looked at the tag.

Does anyone remember Kathie Lee Gifford?   Yeah, she kind of dropped off the radar in the late 1990s.  Before that she had a line of clothes at Walmart.

Which means that these tights are at least 10 years old, if not older.  In fact, I’m pretty sure there are photos of me wearing them in high school if I think about it hard enough.

Say what you will about Kathie Lee and her Walmart line, but these tights have certainly held up.

Thanks again to my guest photographer, Molly from A Foreign Land!
