Any woman working in NYC has a special place in her heart for Duane Reade. After dealing with panty hose rips and snags during the hellish city commutes, you know you can count on there being a Duane Reade within a block or two from your office that you can run into and grab a pair of replacement hose to change in to.
This was me on many mornings and now that I’m not in corporate america anymore, I’m still often at my local Duane Reade for some reason or another. It’s just so convenient and always has what I need.
For halloween I’m going to be a witch as I take Rohan around (still not sure what he’s going to be yet) and I got part of my costume at Duane Reade yesterday. I got my tights for under my dress, and I am still deciding between two hats. The rest of my costume will be a witchy wig (with a grey streak of course), a short black dress I already own, and black shoes. I will NOT be painting my face green, but they did have the face paint there! I may get long black fake nails too.
I’m glad that I’m able to get my costume from Duane Reade, because a) it’s right around the corner and b) It’s always tidy so I don’t have to dig through a million things to find a costume in my size or whatever I’m looking for and c) the price is right.
But back to the hosiery…there was a lot of DR Legwear to choose from…
But I ended up choosing these two bits of leg candy… One with some shimmer and one with polka dots!
I don’t know which I’ll wear on Halloween (the weather will be the determining factor), but both are cute and can be worn after my day as a wicked witch is over. I’ve got a couple of engagement parties to go to next month and I’m sure I’ll be showing my legs in a dress, so these will come in handy.
Check out Duane Reade the next time you’re looking for some “leg candy.” They’ve got quite the variety of colors and patterns, I just happened to buy two of the tame ones.
