What to wear when it rains, well the answer to that is TIGHTS! So I thought the summer was well and truly here but this wet stuff called rain always gets in the way and spoils my attempts to get rid of my Vitamin D deficiency, oh well, I’ll just have to keep taking the tablets. Burlington hosiery, part of the Falke name. No name for the pattern but they are a grey checked “argyle”. Nice diamond detail on the waistband and a wide waistband for added comfort. I knew it was going to be a bad day when I […]

Fluttering up from France
My butterfly tattoo tights came fluttering up from France from new friends Collants.fr an online shop selling hosiery. The tights by Le Bourget called Papillon were a good fit.

You know one day the flowers are on the side, the next the […]
Department Store standard
So department store standard tights have been worn this week. I like to be thorough with my blogging and thought fit to wear some non patterned, non funky normal tights. These are from Debenhams, nearly black 15 denier and I found them at the back of my wardrobe. They fit well and they looked pretty sexy. It may be because I’m used to all the patterns I’ve been wearing but they did look really good. My two down points are that they felt very scratchy and they did snag really easily.
