Poetry Tights

Love these poetry tights from a English shop on Etsy called Colenedesign. My favorites are the blue ones above with the Emily Dickenson poem, "I Gave Myself to Him" - the entire poem is below. 

They'll even do a custom pair with whatever words you'd like...

"I gave myself to him"

I gave myself to Him—
And took Himself, for Pay,
The solemn contract of a Life
Was ratified, this way—

The Wealth might disappoint—
Myself a poorer prove
Than this great Purchaser suspect,
The Daily Own—of Love

Depreciate the Vision—
But till the Merchant buy—
Still Fable—in the Isles of Spice—
The subtle Cargoes—lie—

At least—'tis Mutual—Risk—
Some—found it—Mutual Gain—
Sweet Debt of Life—Each Night to owe—
Insolvent—every Noon—


  1. These are awesome! I have a scarf with Sherlocks Holmes' Hound of the Baskervilles all over it. I need these too!

  2. How cool. If I only wore these anymore.
