Fabulous Falke

Fabulous Falke

Fabulous Falke tights today. I’ve tagged them as purple but the actual colour is violetta. I always forget how comfortable Falke hoseiry is. The waistband is wide and is name marked. The colour seemed dark in the shade but when the sun came out they shone with a warm violet. Beautiful! The toes were supposed to look like this,¬† with a slight reinforcement but with my feet and that funny walk I have, it didn’t take long before this happened¬† and I got strangled toes. That’s the problem with fishnets. The hole size of this pair of tights were not […]

My birthday

my birthday present

My birthday a few weeks ago so I must share with you my birthday present if you haven’t already seen them. Beautifully wrapped, it was indeed a very special bundle. I have been salivating over this brand for some months. The humanmade make graphic tights of such imagination. They are so clever. It was on my wish list and my extremely good friend bought me this pair, “ballerina”, a japanese crane design. I let her decide which pattern and she didn’t disappoint. I love them! The unwrapping made it my special birthday moment. Love you LMT.    

Good pub attire

Good pub attire

What is good pub attire on a cold UK day? This of course. Sparkly Tesco tights and bright red trainers. They are not one of my favourites. Very long in the leg so a lot of wrinklyness around my ankles but I’ve needed the extra insulation due to this cold. Look at that sparkle!

Supernatural Powers

supernatural powers

Using my supernatural powers, with my supernatural hosiery, I am willing the cold away! With images and thoughts of hot, summery things, the winter will go and I can bask in the warmth. That was my idea with these cactus seamed purple tights from hosetights. Did it work? Not really, you see I don’t possess supernatural powers. The tights were good though! Warm, cosy, thick. The colour was deep and inspiring. I do have seam problems and at some points during the day they became side seams on one leg and off back seams on the other. I just have […]

Primark Sparkly Bows

Primark Sparkly Bows

The cold has got me. I tried so hard to be fair and to wear my winners before resorting to the remainders but my winners didn’t win because they were thick winter barriers. I have had to delve to the bottom of the storage box and pull out a few cold friendlier tights. This pair was one of them, at least they had a bit of sparkle.

CK back again

CK back again for a gin night out. These crochet patterned CK tights are lovely. I like them a lot. They can be very warming and I have been struggling with this sudden cold weather. I just can’t get warm. Eventhough fishnets look very draughty I’ve always found them to be able to resist the cold. That’s clever sceince that is!

Alice and Olivia came for the day

Pretty Polly Alice and Olivia

Alice and Olivia came out to play. These are lace ruffle top knee highs from Pretty Polly Alice and Olivia range. A delightful floral lace sock with a ruffle top. Comfortable, stayed up. The ruffle top deserved to be shown for its uniqueness but I don’t quite know what the outfit combo should be. I started the day wearing a long dress which hid the socks. I changed into a shorter dress in the afternoon so I did look a little weird if you live in middle agedom, as I do. Leggings/skinny jeans would create a bulge where the ruffle […]

News from China

News from China

Good news from China! I got some more tights!! Woo hoo! I ordered many pairs of tights from a well known internet site and have finally received one batch. They are a collection of sheer tights in various patterns. They seemed on the smaller side and needed a bit of stretching to feel comfortable, so much stretching I thought it would be my last. There was a lot of pulling up which is never a pretty sight and again adds to the possibilty of hole making. I like them, no I do like them, but I am a sucker for […]

Freezing Weather Tights

Freezing Weather Tights

These are definitely freezing weather tights. Posted last year these Via Spiga tights have featured a few times. The first as the warmest tights in the world, next as a base for one of my upcycling projects and then just with Dennis when I did a couple of re-wears. They are very warm but rather than being just a plain opaque pair of black tights, they are just that little bit more exciting with their woollen crochet look.
