ombre tights
Seattle magazine managing editor, Lisa Wogan, always wears the coolest tights. Arts editor, Brangien Davis, isn’t too far behind Ms. Wogan, with her stylish “uniform” of boots, tights and pencil skirts. So once I found these amazing ombre tights ($45, on sale now for a limited time for $30) from BZR on Etsy, I immediately thought of my lovely co-workers and how I might now be able to join their tight-knit, exclusive clique.

I want something that’s velvety soft, yet deep and complex. Something that whispers, but says something meaningful. Like about where it’s from.
