Etna is active… again. Double meaning in this, one hosiery connected and the other is a personal announcement. So 1, back in February I wore these Gabrielle Etna tights. It was cold and they were perfect. Etna being active is just another way to say they’re a repeat wear. 2, on a personal level. I started this blog because at the time I had just finished chemotherapy treatment for bowel cancer. I was well and needed a bit of a creative outlet. When this post goes live I will have just had an operation to remove a rather large mass […]
She turned her back and left in a flurry of laces and bows. That’s the effect I would have had if I were a heroine in a novel. These are Gabriella Carla holdups, received from legitup. A stunning looking pair of holdups with a lacey top, block black colour and revealing backs. The pattern of laces and bows had a little sparkle. They were comfortable and my only niggle was the silicon strip wasn’t very sticky. I had to endure quite a bit of cleaning (of the strip) and pulling up (of the stocking). This I think led to the […]
I chose to wear from their Winter Collection, Gabriella Bonie tights today. I really did need the 200 denier hosiery and was kept extremely warm all day. My only issue with them was, eventhough they were size 2 (smallest), I experienced a lot of sag and the pattern of snowflakes did not show as well as I’d hoped. To compare, the main picture are the tights stretched. This smaller photo is what I really looked like today. Notice the wrinkles at the bottom.
Today’s pic is of Gabriella holdups Alta. Black holdup stockings with a wide grid lacetop and geometric backseam pattern. I loved the wideness of the lacetop.
Bacara 05 by Gabriella today. Here’s the straight on view, So a spiral pattern throughout the leg broken up with geometric shapes along the side making an unusual and eye catching pattern. They felt a bit scratchy when I put them on but I have been wearing some quite glamorous hosiery lately and the feeling wasn’t uncomfortable just different.
Zip it today! A simple backseam in the style of a zip. Hopefully a small detail that the eagle eyed noticed. Bought from tightsandmore by Gabriella, 20 denier, they had the typical Gabriella silky feel. Great service and quality goods from both.
I bought these Gabriella fishnet holdups (calze model 153) because I wanted a large holed fishnet pattern. These fit the requirements perfectly and from one of my favourite suppliers, mystockings. I was a bit worried about toe strangulation but the holes are big enough not to give that sensation even though my toes were through the net. They produce a really seductive look and a nostalgic glamour that some older ladies reminisce about. The floral lacetop is rather pretty too.
Yes I’m a hoseaholic. I know I said I wouldn’t buy any more tights but it is the January sales and I couldn’t miss out on the sales. So from mystockings I got these packages which then turned into these tights And from simplyhosiery I got this Do I really need to buy anymore? Well cover pic is my collection of unopened brand new, never worn before packs of hosiery. So the simple answer to that is there is no simple answer, the world is a complicated place and no one knows how it all works. The only thing I […]
Gabriella Vera holdups today. Lovely and silky. Floral seam and a lacetop. I did get a bit of slippage but after a bit of anti fuzz cleaning (wiping gummy top with wet cloth) I was back to good. Unfortunately after a days wear I got home to discover this
