To me, tights are something of a super accessory because they can make or break an outfit and keep you warm. (Show me a handbag that can do that.) With so many colors, textures, and patterns to choose from, it's no wonder that I've built up such a store of them over the years. I have two hat boxes so crammed with the things that they pop up like those dreaded worms in a can whenever I crack the lids. Yet even with such a collection, I get all misty-eyed when I discover a rogue hole or snag. Especially if it's somewhere conspicuous (read: embarrassing) and I'm unarmed with clear nail polish.
