Have come away for the weekend and have fucked my packing up.

I'm going out for two meals over the weekend and have two short ish dresses.

My legs are such that I need tights as the dresses are above knee length. My legs are totally pale and a bit flabby.

I have tights.

The only shoes ive got are Converse types or strappy toeless heels.

So do I totally scare everyone with my awful legs or wear tights with toeless shoes?

I can't go shopping for either fake tan, seamless tights or different shoes.

I would do tights and toeless heels if you don't feel comfortable with your legs..who writes these fashion rules anyway?

Your legs will be under the table most of the time so nobody is really going to notice. I'd go for tights and toeless shoes. After all, in low light, who is going to notice the toe seams?

agree. I wear tights and sandals a lot!

[with seams] who cares?

It'll have to be tights and open toe heels.
Needs must.

Wiggle the tights round when you put them on so the seams are under your foot instead of across your toe. Have a lovely evening!

Fab, thanks.
