sheer perfection with YourTights
I never met my great-grandmother but from the few photos I've seen, she was an adorable little lady. My mom's childhood best friend told me a story once about what kind a woman she was, and as an adult I listened intently, trying to figure out if parts of her live inside me.
In the fifties, as we all know from watching old films or period pieces, milk was delivered in glass bottles that were then returned and reused perpetually. The neighborhood that my mother's family lived in had a local deli where the used bottles could be deposited. Although I was not a part of this world yet, as I tell this story, it's as if I was there, witnessing it and feeling the sun on my skin.
It turns out, that my great-grandmother, like me, was a perfectionist. You see, everyone else that would stand in line to return the bottles would simply rinse the milk out. But not her, before relinquishing them, she would wash and scrub them and make them like new again. My mother's friend told me that as kids, they would sometimes play near the deli or happened to be there with their parents and would admire my great-grandmother as she stood in line and silently made a statement.
Always impeccably dressed, bottles in hand, the cleanest, prettiest bottles that sparkled in the sun like enchanted glass treasures fit for a queen. It's a childhood memory that was etched in my mom's friend's mind, and now it resides within the confines of my own soul.
Sheer perfection, what can I say, I'm always chasing it. I think wearing a pair of perfect tights is one way to look put together. I tried a pair of YourTights and I'm hooked. They're not itchy like some brands, or too tight, or loose. My pup Missy even clawed at them a couple of times and not a scratch or a run on them. They fit like a glove and as far as I'm concerned, they are sheer perfection. Did I mention you can get a monthly delivery right to your door? Want your own pair? I'm giving one away!
