Jealous of My Legs?

My inseam is 21.5" and I wear a size 16.
Put those measurements together and guess how easy it is to find pants or TIGHTS that fit.
Mmmhmm. Ladies, if you're short, do you have issues with tights sagging at your ankles? You've probably noticed that on days I don hosiery, I also wear boots. That's so you can't see the miles of extra fabric that gather by my feet.
In short (pun in tended), my friends, you are probably not jealous of my legs.

Today, you should all be jealous of my legs. Because they are TEAL.
We Love Colors is the very first place in the entire universe (I know, because I've searched all over creation) that offers plus sized tights by height! Yes, you read that correctly. I know! How amazing, right?
Not only do these carribean colored beauties fit my waist (sans nasty double muffin top), but do you see puddles of fabric around my ankles? No? Me neither.
I have fallen in love.

The nasty rain decided I wasn't allowed to take photos outside, today, so the trusty vacant office across from mine has proved to be a mediocre backdrop. Plus, when I tell you I work in a bat cave, I'm only a tiny bit joking, because there are 4 empty offices surrounding me. I'm literally all by myself, back here.
And that's great when I'm doing an impromptu morning photo sesh.

If you're like me and you have a body that's not standard size, OR if you adore tights and colors (51 of them!), you have got to check out We Love Colors. I'm asking for a shopping spree there for my birthday, which, by the way, is very soon.
Just in case you were wondering... it's on February 13.
