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.
My Little Bro is Getting Hitched
Today my little bro is getting hitched and to mark the occasion I am publishing an actual post. Unless my lo tech, small brain, unresponsive fingers do something to sabotage this. I have bought/planned to wear these Oroblu tights today if it’s not hot. The climate at the moment is so unpredictable that it could be temperatures into the high 20’s or rain and sleet in the low double figures. GP soon to be GT is into pink and all that stuff so as a tribute I got these beautiful floral tights to look girly. Also I am very pleased […]
Shopping with an extra friend.
Let’s go shopping with an extra friend. Hidden under my skirts is Met up with some wonderful ladies and did lunch and a shop. I bought along an extra friend in the guise of a panda bear. FP has always been a fan of pandas and hopefully in her growing years this has continued. Well we all hope it continues and she’s not too polite to say she isn’t because we still look out for panda connected cornucopia for her. Bearing this in mind I thought panda tights would be an appropriate addition to our party. Received these as part […]
The only way to view cherrry blossom
I have been away lately having hot intraperitoneal chemotherapy and now am home and on another slow road to recovery. To celebrate this great achievement here is a full length picture of cherry blossom tights by stop and stare
Human made crane
Look at the beauty of these Humanmade crane tights, called Ballerina. They are so so pretty. I was given them as a birthday present and was waiting for a good day to wear them. My original post was just all about the packaging. They come in a envelope wrapped in textured paper. They look so great you don’t want to touch them. They are thick lycra hosiery and the design is just delightful. Wearing them with a plain dress makes them the centrepiece of my outfit.
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.
Fluttering up from France
My butterfly tattoo tights came fluttering up from France from new friends Collants.fr an online shop selling hosiery. The tights by Le Bourget called Papillon were a good fit. Very comfortable with a wide, soft waistband. They felt smooth and silky, a sign of a good sheer and they didn’t fall down. The tattoo design of butterflies was clear and sat very nicely on the leg. The fun thing about tattoo tights is that they do make people think you have a massive tattoo on your leg so I can tell why this type of hosiery is quickly becoming […]
Stop and Stare from Mystockings
Stop and Stare from Mystockings were my tights of the day some time last week. Sorry for the late posting but I’ve been a bit busy with work and family. I love mystockings! They are efficient, provide a quick and reliable service and their range of hosiery is beautiful. They stock a massive range of Ballet hosiery, started Maison Close and now Stop and Stare as well as a few others. Thank you Kriszta and the team! So these arrived in their mystockings signature gold wrapping which eventhough you’ve bought the hosiery yourself makes it feel like your birthday again […]
