things aren't what they seem...

I was a little surprised to spot this girl, who couldn't have been older than 21, rocking these overtly sexy garters in the middle of the day in a posh area of London yesterday. When I say posh I mean it. I even walked past Margaret Thatcher, who was accompanied by 7 bodyguards, a personal assistant, one Jag, and a Range Rover, being escorted into a hair salon. Anyway, regardless of the part of town, this was a first time trend spot for me. Sure Taylor Momsen went a bit mental for them a couple months ago and Henry Holland made a tamer version by incorporating the look into real tights (you know, the kind that actually cover your behind) but I hadn't seen anyone wearing them in real life. This girl is young, pretty, tall, a bit lanky... all making her lean a bit more towards the model side than a sexy burlesque dancer. She looks a bit quirky and ironic - somehow reminding me of something Agyness Deyn might wear. As far as garter tights go she is probably pulling them off in the most day appropriate way... but I just couldn't help but think that if I had a daughter and she left the house wearing them I would chop her head off.
