Okay, since I am waiting on my last paycheck, I decided I will use it to splurge on these tights, since I can picture myself wearing them every day under almost everything. I talked to a lady at our Chanel store, and she said to check back in two weeks... I will let you all know how it goes! *crosses fingers*

Unless the original Chanel tights are absolutely impenetrable, I guess I will have to wait for knockoffs.

They are really great.... i love it and i think they would be super classy worn with a lbd or a black shirt ooh so cute. (have like 1000000 outfits in my head right now)
gotta have something like this... isn't it possible to DIY?!
(thinks of solutions....) i also still want a pair with tie-die effect.

Love it and I'd also buy the original, but I think it's a waste of money since I'd ruin them in a day. Have to check them out anways.

Elle (August 08, p. 128) features the same tights and quotes them as: "Lycra tights, $140, Chanel boutiques worldwide." Sure would be nice if that price were accurate!


I WANT!

Never mind the two-tone version, what about the lacy pair that cost $495! If I wore a pair of tights that cost that much, I'd expect them to start living my life for me, you know, taking me magically in certain directions, toward the shop where I'll buy a winning lottery ticket or the crossing where I'll meet my future husband.

Though, to be honest, the lottery win might need to come before the wearing of the tights, in order to be able to buy them.

I can't see how the high street won't copy this trend, because I'm already seeing articles about it in newspaper style features, and I'd also keep an eye on www.mytights.com which is where most of the hosiery in UK magazine editorials seems to be coming from these days, I've noticed in the credits.

I'm thinking a chain like New Look will have them for around £3, come September.

I get paid tomorrow...quite tempted to ring the the store again see if they have any more info. I really like them but I'll be so terrified of ripping them plus if the high street do copy them then mine will just look as cheap

Went to the Chanel store in Houston and put my name down. The lady said they would probably be in early August and that they had way more names than the amt that would come into the store... T_T I really hope I can get a pair.
