Dear Eric,
You sound like an interesting art teacher. Don't you know by now that
if you wear a longer skirt that knee-hi stalkings are much more
comfortable. (You don't have to pull them up at the waste) Some brands
are tighter than others and cut off the circulation. If they are too
loose they bag around the ankles which is very tacky. Of course you
must try to coordinate colors since they come in a confusing variety.
Too dark and you look like you stayed too long under the sun lamp.
Black is of course the color of the profession and goes with nearly
everything. If you use the fake taning cream then sometimes you can get
away with NO stalkings at all.
Careful with the foundation - it must blend with the neck color. And
remember, hairspray is flamable. Oh yes, don't walk across the lawn in
high heels and home permanents are always bad. (Dolly Parton said that!)
You sound very professional. Good luck this year.
