Comfortable Recovery Favourites
This is the selection of tights I have been wearing during my recovery. With a...
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.
Girl power with some Wolford Tiger tights. These were worn on animal print week 2016. Still bold, still comfortable, still very Wolford.
Matching monochrome stripes today. Ok maybe not the ones I’m wearing but certainly the small version are. Again modelled by my 6 year old niece, a fetching pair of tights for her Book Week “The Worse Witch” costume.
Mine, were part of a Christmas present package. They had an impressive wide waistband for comfort. Quite stretchy. Good!
Do you remember these Trasparenze Show tights? Well if you don’t here they are. A beautiful pair of hosiery that just finishes off an outfit. The flowers are gorgeous and you do feel that bit more special when you wear them.
Halfway through the day, I realised I hadn’t photographed the feet so please excuse their hairiness.This is what happens when you decide to have the most hirsute canine in the world.
These pictures might be very similar to the original post but I have to show you all views to completely admire these to the full.
Ooh Gipsy tartan! Yes in my sick state, and I have mentioned this before, my sense of outfit coordination goes a bit wild. Sitting at home being poorly just makes me think of the possible choices of hosiery I could be wearing and when the time comes to actually wear a new pair of tights I go a bit off piste.
This pair of Gipsy “tartan bright lights” in plum looked enormous when I pulled them out of the packaging. Wow were they going to reach my neck?! To disappoint some people, they didn’t.
Behold the lady Catherine of Oroblu!
When you fancy something different, why not grab a pair of sky blue floral tights and beam. Good quality, comfortable hosiery. Felt a bit scratchy to begin but I think I’ve neglected my skin lately and need a good moisture treatment. How else do I make an entrance?
What do I wear for my first chemo session? Well it’s bows for the big day. With a little help from my little friend These Primark childrens pink bows and toes was proudly presented by my niece so we matched for the day and I got out these bows on sheer tights from China.
Yes I dressed up to look like a 5 foot blackbird. These are Wolford velvet de luxe 66 in golden honey. Soft, vibrant and very comfortable. Can’t beat this type of quality.
