Back to Work
Back to work today after being off for so long! My first day of a gradual return. Thought I’d better not overdo it with this pair of delightful tights. Pamela Mann big hearts.
At first I thought it was a double width heart seam but they turned out to be a double heart front and back with a plain sheer side. The pattern filled my legs so it didn’t look like a seam but a full cover design. They were comfortable and bold fitted well. I usually find their “one size” is a bit long but not today, they were perfect!
Here’s some delayed hosiery on display. I’ve cheated a bit this year and thought I’d try a different tactic. Previously I’d post with fresh pictures and a rushed blurb just before setting off to work. This year I’ve delayed posting and thought I’d save time by scheduling them. Both methods have their good points but today’s post will highlight a bad point of the scheduled method. These tights were worn five months ago!
These are Falke “anthra new”. A raised lined pattern, ridges I suppose in a not really black, not really grey but slate colour. They were lovely, soft, warm, comfortable.
Leg Warmers, I’m making them hip for next season
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!!!
I’ve failed you all
Yes, I’ve failed you all! I have let my blog down by not attending to it more regularly. My excuses…
- I am lazy
- I haven’t been as motivated
- It’s summer now
- I’m not wearing hosiery as much because…
- I am at home ill (pulling out the C card here to get more sympathy)
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
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’m causing a stir
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.
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.
Bows for the big day
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.
