Comfortable Recovery Favourites
This is the selection of tights I have been wearing during my recovery. With a...
A new natural pair of tights today for a change. This is Marilyn branded “Nicole D19”. I’ve taken a few pictures to show the pattern.
Spotty chevrons. Quite a subtle pattern. If I had the black the pattern would be a bit more prominant but I stilled liked them.
Leg Warmers, I’m making them hip for next season. I’ve always been ahead of the style curve, so hip that no one really notices that the trends of today, I was seeking or wearing a few years ago. Maybe that should possibly push me into the eccentric world rather the trendsetter circle. Hmmm!
Sooo, what’s with the leg warmers? Have I taken up fitness… no. Have I become obsessed with nostalgia and started to binge watch old series of Fame… no, even though I do fly! Do I have a friend as mad as me who challenged me to knit my own but then went out to get me some to make me feel better… yes!!! Like me she’s a girl with the same trendsetter (eccentric) style, and bought me bright, wacky, stripey designs. So everyday I got a special package in the post. Now I will be the brightest patient on the chemo ward! Thank you to my lovely, good friend Maz!!!
Back to “here’s one I’ve worn before”, this is referring to the lack of new tights I’ve not worn and I do still have a few stashed away and still adding to. A comfy pair last worn and blogged about in Next spotty. I love the big spots on these and they were part of a bargain lot I bought. Hopefully these pictures a bit clearer, at least they’re in the light.
Big reveal!!! What I chose from StopandStare with my runner up prize.
The cherry blossom design. I really like their designs, and I like the soft feel of their tights. I chose the cherry blossom because I love the way it’s a two leg asymmetric pattern that creates a singular picture on each leg but becomes a whole bigger scene when put together. Beautiful!
Here is more of the natural look for you. Stop and Stare tattoo hosiery which I got from Mystockings. Great soft feel and a great design of dandelion musical notes. On viewing that post “Oh bejeezus, what a terrible out of focus picture!” Another multiple wear pair tho!
Extra note, remember I was a runner up winner in a recent competition with them. I’ve still got to show you what I decided to get so stay tuned!
I have prepared a season of nude hosiery. With lighter weeeks and warmer days, black tights weren’t for me so for a few days before the humidity caught me I wore some natural coloured tights.
So here’s the first. Le Bourget tattoo tights. This pair I wore last year , a design of butterflies all the way from France, check out my link, I wrote a good review ! 😉
Yes, I’ve failed you all! I have let my blog down by not attending to it more regularly. My excuses…
I am presenting today these lacy tights with seams. Don’t know the brand but they’re from my Christmas present collection from my good friends.
legs and feet
I have the pleasure of telling you what these tights are… Gipsy, Gothic, cut and sewn lace. Thanks to Gipsy tights via my instagram.
Get that hosiery back on, it’s wet and cold here in blighty. So I went tights digging and came up with these ombre grey to black tights.
I WON!! No I didn’t but I did get special runner up.
So the question is what did I get with my winnings? Check out stopandstare hosiery to see the options I had.
My new tights will be arriving soon, I’m so excited!
We went on a star gazing outing last night to try to capture the stars. Luckily I have in my possession a asteroid seamed pair of tights.
More hearts? Yes more hearts or mouse ears?
These are hearts and before you say they’re the same as “When Love means love” hearts, they are not. Those were a single plain heart motif, these are a single heart motif and if you look closely with a grid background. I keep saying this but from my big internet batch. ( I still have many so not the last one). They had the same features as the others, good sheer material and toe reinforcing, with the not so good features, the slightly indefined pattern when stretched and the slippage if you don’t wear your superman pants over them.
The good bit about these tights are the toes. I am still working my way through the hoard of cheap internet tights I got from China. They all have a marvellous reinforced toes section and a very nice silky shear feel.They are not good for all you taller hosiery wearers.
This pair with a checked pattern has good defined full lines and I took a few more pics with these.
I’m causing a stir with these Gipsy Cyclone tights. What a great design! The black on near skin effect of the pattern really make it stand out and the spacing between lines stops it from being boring.
I got a care package surprise from my friend SM and as well as the chocolate treats, candles, and the “feel better” knick knacks, it also included these Next giraffe socks. It made the week so much better!
More trailing flowers today. Rummaging around my hosiery collection I picked these up. Not worn since the beginnings of the blog. So far in the past they were that I nearly couldn’t find a post. Indeed they appeared before the twitter and instagram days. Ahhh a distant twinkle in my eye. When The blog only satisfied my own obsession with non black plain tights.
As you can see, a side pattern of trailing flowers. The original post called them trailing daisies and I still think they’re from Topshop. Just look at the bad photo of the original. Two phones later, my pictures hopefully are better.
Here is a collection of Trasparenze Platino pictures. These are the most fabulous pair of tights ever! They are my new favourites!
Trasparenze always delivers with their hosiery. This is a black pair of tights with a cacophony of multicoloured flowers embroidered on them. So so pretty, I just wanted to look at them all day. I was the equivalent of a dog chasing his tail.
Look at the beauty of these Humanmade crane tights, called Ballerina. They are so so pretty. I was given them as a birthday present and was waiting for a good day to wear them. My original post was just all about the packaging. They come in a envelope wrapped in textured paper. They look so great you don’t want to touch them.
They are thick lycra hosiery and the design is just delightful. Wearing them with a plain dress makes them the centrepiece of my outfit.
Ahh this is an improvement, when love means love. A single heart motif this time from the internet batch of the last post “When love is not love”. Ok the motif is still not as clear as can be but it is recognisable as a heart. Better!
When love is not love, when they get presented with these! This is a pair of internet batch specials, a double heart motif on sheer tights. So far the patterns on these tights have been fairly ok. These are the first where I’ve gone “Hmmm, why have I got blobs on my legs.” Not good!
This is a first time for Gatta and I wasn’t let down with this pair called Loretta. A mock stocking with a leopard print thigh high garter. Good and sturdy, with a well defined pattern. Comfortable with minimal wrinkling. a very enjoyable pair of tights.
