Say What? The Perils of Dress

Colleague A: I love your tights.
Colleague B: Those are great tights. They're very baroque.
Colleague C: Those are very striking tights. Of course, you young people can wear that kind of thing.
Self: I will stand behind the lectern during the entire class in order not to distract students with my tights.

Stranger on the street: "Your outfit is absolutely beautiful!"
Self: Thanks nice stranger.
Stranger on the street continues: "You look just like Snow White!"
Self, internally: WTF?! will dress cause students to regress to childhood during review for midterm?

So, were you wearing those purple lace tights? They are, um, eye-catching. ;)

Funny you should guess. Actually I prefer the color to the pattern on those, but it was hard to see the exact pattern before wearing them.

Are those the tights that match your living room?

How do they look like Snow White?

Same tights as the photo. But two different days' outfits. I didn't photograph the alleged Snow White dress.

Alex! You aren't reading obsessively enough! See photo in earlier post.

And which puppet is that on your photo? Not Shirley, is it?
