I think I've finally got to admit defeat and come to terms with the fact I've lost my very favourite, very loved pair of bebaroque tights. I lucked upon them in an Urban Outfitters sale a few years ago, thought that they were perhaps a ridiculous price for one pair of tights, but decided that I liked ridiculous things and bought them anyway.
They looked like this this, I got complimented on them whenever I wore them out (which I did, so frequently that a few people thought I'd actually got my leg tattoed), and they seem to now be out of stock everywhere. Sob.
So maybe it's time to give up the search and buy another pair?
bebaroque was set up in 2007 by two graduates from Glasgow School of Art, Mhairi McNicol and Chloe Patience (what a lovely name!). Combining their skills of hand embroidery and drawing, bebaroque was born, producing beautiful tights, leggings and body wear.
They are beautiful, but they aren't cheap (not a surprise really, considering they are still hand embroidered and printed in Scotland). Tights start at around £40 going up to £150 (eek), and for body wear you could spend well over £600 on a dress (eeeek). But the tights are amazing quality (my tights - RIP - were in brilliant nick, even after many, many, many washes!) and I think they are absolutely worth it.
So. A new pair (I'm thinking the Natalia heart tights above) are going firmly on my wishlist. I want hearts on my knees!
