Pretty Polly? Pretty Amazing!


Take Britains most beloved and iconic legwear, add one red hot designer,  and throw in one of the biggest pop stars in the world, and what do you get? The House of Holland for Pretty Polly AW11 collection featuring Jessie J of course!  
The mercury's dropping and tights are coming back in a big way - but why dress your legs in something drab and  dreary when you've got gorgeous (and affordable) designs at your fingertips?
With prices starting at £12, the collection is 100% instant sexbomb - just add tights.
  There's something for every girl with styles ranging from bold stars to a cheeky take on laddering and the undeniably gorgeous mesh Super Suspenders as worn by Jessie, so there's really no excuse not to sass up your Autumn wardrobe.


Doin' it like a superhero - Jessie J displays an extremely
impressive pair of pins accentuated by the flattering, sassy
design of the tights

I'll be going for the Super Suspenders because I think they look unreal - quirky and different with just the right amount of sex-kitten sophistication. I'm a big fan of suspenders, but can get a bit annoyed with them not staying up properly! The great thing about the Super Suspender design is that they look like you're wearing suspenders when you're actually taking a cheeky shortcut. Do we call that cheating? I call it innovation! 
 One glance at this stunning comic - strip style advertisement is enough to make you fall in love with these tights and I can say I definitely came down with a case of leg envy when I first laid eyes on it!
If, like me, this collection has reignited your passion for gorgeous tights,  I suggest you leg it over to the Pretty Polly pop up shop and get em while they're hot! The pop up shop is located at Covent Garden Market and is open until January 31 next year. To check out the gorgeous collection visit Pretty Polly here.



P.S. I know tights don't strictly fall under the 'beauty' category, but they are just too darn special not to rave about!



   Lippy Tip - To stop a case of the dreaded 'tight itchies' - you know, that uncomfortable feeling when your tights rub against your winter-parched skin -  be sure to moisturise your legs before rolling on your legwear. Using a dry oil such as Huile Prodigieuse by cult brand Nuxe smells lovely and absorbs quickly. I picked up my bottle from Space NK for £23 (50ml). I was feeling extra girly that day so opted for the Golden Shimmer edition

This shimmering version of Huile Prodigieuse
adds a little disco to your body, face and hair :)
