Rare warmer day
On a rare warmer day I wore these gorgeous Le Bourget LDC hold ups. They are a silky sheer stocking with a wide red and black lace stocking top. Good hold, very comfortable and very pretty. I wore Le Bourget hosiery before with a pair of tattoo print from collants.fr and was impressed by the feel and the comfort of this brand. I can assure you it’s a quality that is consistent with their products.
Hope the carousel pictures aren’t too blurry.
Alice and Olivia came for the day
Alice and Olivia came out to play. These are lace ruffle top knee highs from Pretty Polly Alice and Olivia range. A delightful floral lace sock with a ruffle top. Comfortable, stayed up. The ruffle top deserved to be shown for its uniqueness but I don’t quite know what the outfit combo should be. I started the day wearing a long dress which hid the socks. I changed into a shorter dress in the afternoon so I did look a little weird if you live in middle agedom, as I do. Leggings/skinny jeans would create a bulge where the ruffle was and trousers would hide them completely. Hmmm!
Backed up with Laces and Bows
She turned her back and left in a flurry of laces and bows. That’s the effect I would have had if I were a heroine in a novel. These are Gabriella Carla holdups, received from legitup. A stunning looking pair of holdups with a lacey top, block black colour and revealing backs. The pattern of laces and bows had a little sparkle. They were comfortable and my only niggle was the silicon strip wasn’t very sticky. I had to endure quite a bit of cleaning (of the strip) and pulling up (of the stocking). This I think led to the pattern movement so the backs became the sides, if you get my meaning. Always looking for an excuse, because none of my hosiery is bad, they were new – and I had moisturised – so maybe that’s why they became unstuck.
Oroblu floral ladders
The weather went cold AGAIN last week and I had to break into my secret stash and wear these marvellous holdups. Oroblu, Extase, a “tulle-based lace effect stay-up stockings.” With “a delicate, vertical floral pattern alternates with polka dots.”
They were fantastic. They looked great and they stayed up all day. The pattern is very pretty and with a bit of shuffling, I suppose you could rotate them round and make them seem like you have several different pairs of tights. You know one day the flowers are on the side, the next the ladder, polka dots are there instead.
Charnos Lacetop Holdups
I am wearing Charnos lacetop holdups, a sheer pair of hosiery which stay up well. This was a pack of two and I wore the first pair in January. I was quite impressed then and I still am. They had a silky touch and eventhough I worried that the lacetop was comparatively narrow, they stayed up all day without budging at all.
Package from Mayfair!
Package from Mayfair! Followers I have been shopping. I am preparing myself for next year!!
I got this yesterday and opened it to find,
Thoughtfully wrapped to protect my delicates. It was like Christmas day all over!
It seems a shame to not to keep them in this way, I had to rip open all this beautiful packaging to reveal what was inside,
Thank you Mayfair Stockings! I am sure this is the beginning of a fulfilling relationship.
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
Veneziana Fishnet Holdups
I wore Veneziana fishnet holdups yesterday and they did what they said on the tin. Sophisticated and glamourous without trying too hard. As expected a floral lacetop adding to the hidden sexiness.
I love fishnets especially now they’re being a bit more inventive with patterns but looking at past posts and examining the pictures, can I really tell one pair of fishnets from another?
