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.
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.
Animal print week, APW finale!!! Bet you didn’t guess it was going to be mermaid! Not sure if the tail should be on the back or front, finally after a bit of toing and froing, this and thating it’s been decided to be on the front. The back is a good spot but like seamed hosiery have to be placed in the perfect position to gain full mermaid effect.
From a supplier in China, they come in both black and natural. The tail is glittery and sparkly thus giving a shimmery scale feel to it. I love this pattern!
After a day of wear they unfortunately laddered
Fortunately the ladder runs along the mermaid tail and looks like part of the pattern, they also kept falling down and the glitter was a bit scratchy on my skin. They are such a fun pair that I’m going to get another wear out of them especially if I’m a bit clever with the nail varnish.
Hope you all enjoyed APW, I’ve had so much fun doing this week.
A last minute wardrobe change made me wear these sparkly squiggles today. By Fiore called Delana. A wavy lined back seamed with metallic thread running through it. Fiore, as always provided a silky touch finish with some movement where seam adjustment had to be made but that I think is more handler error rather than hosiery fault. Bought from simplyhosiery another amazing supplier who have a gorgeous range that isn’t to intimidating.
