Have I achieved the impossible by finding non slippage footsies that actually don’t slip?
These are Calvin Klein toeless yoga socks. They have a sole grip and individual toes.
When my mum visited Japan a few years ago she bought a pair of toed socks and told me how comfortable they were and how they fit her extremely small feet so well. I put it down to the toes. When I found these in tkmaxx, I thought I should consumer test them and then possibly buy more as presents.
I’m not keen on in-betweeny toes bits on flip flops so was a bit apprehensive. Quite comfortable, not much slippage. I will have to try different shoe heights to confirm but with a pair of inch and a half ankle boots, they didn’t move.
I liked them and they were an interesting conversation starter with everyone I showed!
So did I achieve the impossible. No. I thought I had, but on reflection these are not footsies. They are socks. My mission is still alive and kicking!
Good news these Marylin natta D17 tights are the last stored posts I’ve got and so the next post will be back to normal business and I’ve timed it just right for the new season. Check out the contrasting garter with grid and swirl pattern.
Lara Wolford not Croft
This is Lara Wolford not Croft. So no utility belts here just a normal day of shopping.
Here and next I’m showing a couple of wolford tights. This is “Lara” a thick pair of hosiery in grey and a black tramline side stripe.
As always Wolford perform very well. The soft, cosy, comfortable feel was what I expected and got.
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.
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.
Care Package Surprise
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!
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!
First for 2017
The first for 2017 has been these from my Christmas present stack. Thick cotton tights from Vincent Creation. Black and grey stripes, because hey, if a girl is house bound when the time to go for a PET/CT scan arrives I must be seen!
I think the lack of social interactions has made my style sense go off a bit. You’ll see in some posts the absence of any coordination but see it my way I can wear anything I want because no one can see me.
Falke Squiggly Rose
Falke Squiggly Rose design. I don’t think they have names for their hosiery. These are in “stone”, so a dark grey with an even darker swirl which then developes into a squiggly rose. Falke are wonderfully comfortable hosiery maker. With an always luxurious soft feel. The patterns are forever special.
Hopefully you can see the close up. I should really have taken a picture of the reverse side because that was interesting.
