Don't want to go all the way like VB?

Yesterday Joy of Tights reported that Victoria Beckham had been seen breaking all the rules by wearing tights with well, sandals.

If you don't want to go that far, why not try some sexy peep toe shoes with your tights?
In case you don't know:
"A peep-toe shoe is a woman's shoe (usually a pump, slingback, bootie, or any other dress shoe) in which there is an opening at the toe-box which allows the toes to show.  Peep-toe shoes were popular beginning in the 1940s but disappeared by the 1960s. Peep-toe shoes had a brief resurgence in the 1970s/80s, before falling out of fashion by the mid-1990s.  More recently, they have enjoyed some popularity again, with variations such as "peep-toe boots" appearing."
Great for parties:
 Good for going about town:
Although maybe not for the country.
Nice peep toe boots though.
And peep toes with tights are good for all ages
Remember, once you go the whole way and break the taboo of wearing full open shoes ("sandals" even) with your tights:
There is no telling what other taboos you might break.

Posh(,) Tights and Sandals

While most people would avoid teaming tights with open-toed shoes where possible, Victoria Beckham made a point of wearing exactly that when she browsed what Paris' stores had to offer on last Thursday.

Dainty, open-toed sandals with her thick tights. Fashion no-no? Maybe if you follow an outdated rulebook.
Chalk this one up as another fashion high-note for VB.

Could we all follow VBs example?
When in Paris, so as Posh does?
Or almost - opaques rather than woollies.
More Posh Paris Fashion
A little more patterned than Posh

But should you be even more radical than Posh?
Black tights, white sandals.  Just the thing to dance around your (white) handbag
How about bright blue tights with open shoes?
Or a nice yellow with suspender effect.
But these next ones are probably beyond the pale - although not in the option of JoT.
Sheer but at least with a sandal toe
Sheer but with a reinforced toe - is that the sound of a fainting fashionista I hear?

Saint David's Tights

Today is Saint David's Day.  So we are going to look at St David's tights.  Well not St David's tights as such, but Welsh tights.
These tights were apparently still there when the snow had gone.  The staying power of tights.
OK, perhaps you don't want to see Welsh tights as such, but more tights being warn by girls in Wales.
