Taking Risks: Stockings edition!

A guaranteed way to add fab to your outfit is to wear some fashionable stockings. Now choosing the right stockings to give your outfit the added edge takes a little experimentation, however, when you get the right complement, you feel as if you have conquered a fashion challenge. This weekend I felt like getting creative with my stockings. Having done it in the past, I wanted to see if I could get the thrill I felt from the first time I took a risk with my stockings. I admit, the first time is the hardest, however, after stepping out on a limb, not knowing how your fashion sense will be received and gaining positive feedback, your confidence builds. So life is about taking risks, conquering milestones, and realizing living your whole life in a safe box is no fun at all ;) Below are my first and second attempts at taking risks with my stockings.....hope it inspires you to go brave with your style!
