This snood was a gift from Goth Barbie, a fellow blogger (Military Fashion Show). You can snag one just like it, or similar, on her Etsy site. Her snoods are very versatile because they're reversible. The underside of this is mainly red with some specks of black. Next time I wear this, I'm probably going to wear it with fishnets, cause you know what they say? Double the fishnets, double the pleasure. (No one says that, btw.)
When planning this outfit, I knew I wanted to wear tights w/shorts, but I wasn't sure how to style them. I found a bunch of advice for curvy women suggesting loose-fitting, long shorts. I'm going to go ahead, on record, and state this is probably NOT the best look for those of us with curves. Actually, I don't think this would be a good look on any body type. Baggy shorts just sound like a bad idea.
On the topic of shorts length, there seems to be a thought that larger women should wear longer shorts, but I believe the length of your shorts depends more on your height than anything else. I'm 5' 3" so I won't be caught dead in long shorts; they cut me in half and make me look like I'm part of the Lollipop Guild. That was a long way of saying, screw advice you find on the internet (including mine) you must try different combinations and find something that works for you.
