Flowers in the attic
I shall rephrase flowers in the attic to flowers from the box underneath the bed. Not as catchy but accurate.
One of my favourite designs, this is a Trasperanze pair of hose called “Platino”. A gorgeous colourful flower embroidered onto a black background. I still think they’re very pretty.
They were blogged about in April 2017. Being a repeat wear they had shrunk a bit and lay a bit lower on the body than a brand new unworn pair but in my eyes the beautiful pattern makes up for this.
Light as a feather
As light as a feather. This is Ballerina 135, a light weight hosiery, just right for me when the weather isn’t quite cold but chilly enough. I needed a bit of glamour that day too so these were perfect. A grid base with a side pattern and garter effect of a swirl flourish possibly flowery design.
I wore these Christmas anklets for this most jolly of seasons. I bought these from Next outlet for a quid and they are brilliant. Cute floral design with a bit of pink bling at the top. Comfortable and they didn’t slip or twist to my surprise. Wore them with a maxi dress so unless I showed you, you would have thought I was wearing a normal pair of tights. 😀
Here’s a bit of cosmic gold! Look at these.
It looked a bit chilly when the day started and so I wore these black opaque Pretty Polly tights but the day became muggy and quite hot later. I wanted a bit of glam too so these fit the bill with a gold glitter backseam. I’ve still got some sparkly on my car seat.
Next to shimmer
Next to shimmer! I got these in the Next outlet and they were a bargain price so I bought four pairs altogether, which I will be showcasing over the next few days. If your size is available, bargain buckets, outlet joints and sale items are my favourite haunts for tights. They are a treasure trove for unusally patterned hosiery or out of this world colours.
This shimmery blue pair provided a bit of glitter to my day. They were very scratchy due to the “glimmer” element. They did have a reinforced toe so at least the scratchiness did not affect the toes.
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.
Ballerina boo hoo
Ballerina boo hoo, had a bit of a cry when I put these on this morning. They came with a small ladder.
I still wore them for the day and they will hold long enough to wash and wear again. Luckily for me the ladder is contained.
So this pair of Ballerina hosiery art 285, consists of a general swirly pattern which winds from the foot, along the both sides of the leg and all the way to the thigh.
The pattern at the front waved round to the leg which then troughed at the back.
Beautiful stockings with, I hope you can see, glitter thread encased in the stitching
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.
