Coordinating my outfit
If I was normal I’d find it so hard coordinating my outfit. It’s not difficult and it doesn’t have to be expensive. Just a bit of guts will do the trick.
Starting my invasion of my hosiery storage I needed a wine red/burgundy pair of tights to match my dress. These purple ones will do, and you know what they were perfect.
Under the original post of “Gipsy tartan“, it sounds like they were worn during chemo back in 2017
Ooh Gipsy tartan! Yes in my sick state, and I have mentioned this before, my sense of outfit coordination goes a bit wild. Sitting at home being poorly just makes me think of the possible choices of hosiery I could be wearing and when the time comes to actually wear a new pair of tights I go a bit off piste.
This pair of Gipsy “tartan bright lights” in plum looked enormous when I pulled them out of the packaging. Wow were they going to reach my neck?! To disappoint some people, they didn’t.
Au Revoir Gerbe
Au revoir Gerbe!
These lovely tights have made their way onto the stairway of no return. I love the colour, I love the pattern, I love the slippery slidey feeling I get when I walk over a polished floor. I have worn these a few times in the past few weeks. Their first appearance was just before Christmas but now they must be sent to the away due to a hole in the thigh.
Au revoir Gerbe
This season I’ve tried a few more brands and these are Gorgeous Gerbe. I’m always wanting to wear fabulous colours and as you all know I love patterned legs and this pair of tights fits the bill. In subtle blue (or is it purple) it’s not garish and after wearing them I want to go out and buy more coloured hosiery.
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 as cauterising as some so not a big fault. Please excuse the neglected toe nails, did I ever tell you I’m really lazy!
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 a funny way of walking.
I had glitter legs today and the effect was achieved by wearing a pair of Tesco, glitter tights. They sparkled and shimmered in the light. I was mesmerised by the colours it emitted. I could sit and watch the rainbows dance in front of my eyes for hours, like a moth to a light bulb.
BIG probem though, bagginess! You might be able to see the colours they produced but you might also be able to see my wrinkled ankles as well as my wrinkled knees, I felt like a newbie circus performer who’s been given the last acrobat’s full body leotard, baring in mind that I’m only 5 foot and the last performer’s inside leg length was 5 foot. I’m hoping a wash will shrink because as you can read the colours were fireflies foxtrotting in the garden of eden hypnotising simple folk like me.
My first pair of ombre tights today. Bought from a Chinese supplier in a very catchy fuchsia to purple to navy blue. Comfortable, warm and soft to the touch. I’m wondering if the ombre effect was sufficient or if the colours need to graduate into each other more smoothly. They didn’t squash my toes but they did fall a little and wrinkle. Anticipated a droopy gusset so went to work with a spare pair of knickers on over the tights for that superman look. This did keep the tights up for longer than usual as well as keeping me extra cosy warm.
