One of the best things about cooler temperatures is it’s tight time.  Time to get out one of my favorite cold weather accessories, a great pair of black tights, or even a bold pair of cobalt blue tights. Colorful tights help to jazz up any outfit from a knit Oxblood dress to a tunic dress.   Here’s  little fashion tip on where to get them: Kushyfoot. They offer tights in a variety of colors with a unique padded sole or heel, depending on what kind you order.   I’ve been loving their tights and footies for both fashion and comfort.  You can buy Kushyfoot online or at your local RiteAid drug store at inexpensive prices. Their tights are priced at $26.97 for 3 pairs right now on their website. I have bought an individual pair of the tights at the drug store for as little as $6.00.  Right now, Kushyfoot is relaunching their site so it’s a good to time to order your tights and save.

For a limited time you can save $10.00 off your order of $30.00 or more by using code: RELAUNCH2012.    If you go to Kushyfoot, check out their padded footies or foot covers.  I love these! Having recently had foot surgery, these inexpensive little foot covers protect your feet from fashionable shoes that may look good, but not feel good, on your naked feet.  Take care of your feet with that little extra bit of cushioning.   The lace covered footies come in black and neutral colors.  What do you think readers? Do you love tights for fall? I remember Hillary Clinton always wearing her black tights when she was First Lady. It’s a fashion trick to make the legs appear longer and slimmer.  That Hillary is so smart.
