Whilst ironing I was thrown into excruciating pain. The first things that entered my mind was
1) I must have cut my toe nails a little too short, I hope I haven’t got an ingrowing nail, and
2) blimey that chemo stuff really messed with my extremities
Then the pain got a little worse so I thought I better investigate. It was only my big toe being cheese wired, right where the nail starts. I pulled a bit and I rubbed a bit and the pain subsided a little. Now, two hours later the pain has gone. Phew, I missed amputation for another day.
Unfortunately with a pair of tights as holey as these, toe strangulation is extremely normal. The other warning I must give is “foot through gaps” syndrome when putting them on. After a couple of attempts, using my normal method of stick foot in and pull up. I changed tack and used the gather hosiery all the way to the ends and unravel over toes towards thighs. It worked for these legsavenue fishnets. Last posted December 2016.
Again I was impressed by the change of weave around the toes.
These are Oroblu Audrine tights. A net effect criss cross pattern making it look like fishnets. The “invisible” flat seam was comfortable and very streamlining.
I liked them.
First of 2018-19
This is officially the first of 2018-19 posts.
It’s also a rewear of Golden Lady diamond fishnets. A great looking pair of tights. Doesn’t everyone love cheap finds that keep giving.
For the eagle eyes ones out there these were first shown under the link above. For the extreme eagle eyes ones they were also featured a few months later as the first post of the 2016-2017 season.
They are obviously a great pair of hosiery since I’ve decided on two occasions to start new seasons with them and I guarantee this won’t be the last time you see them.
My mind has gone doolally
With all these backdated, saved up posts my mind has gone doolally and I can’t remember a thing about these. Luckily for me I predicted this mind lapse and noted that these were a floral fishnet from Next. Good toe protecting area but then this happened, I must add that my only explanation for this is that my feet haven’t fair well from the chemotherapy I had. These were worn a couple of months after treatment finished and I had to adapt to the numbness I still feel in them. That is my excuse for ruining a pair of decent, strong patterned tights. On this occasion the hosiery were not to blame.
As usual I’m revealing the secrets of a hosiery wearer with this view of my fishnet protectors.
If I’m being an optimist then this is a two for one post.
Underneath this sexy exterior lies this! An extra pair of hosiery to stop the fishnets from rubbing my soles and causing blisters. The fishnets are Donna Karan signature collection micro tulle and the socks were a freebie with an order from China.
Yes they did protect, and yes I was aware of them all the time, and yes the sexy woman aura wasn’t as sexy.
Fun with Falke
I’m having fun with Falke today. These were gratefully supplied by luxury legs. I won a competition and these were the prize. Micronet tights.
As with all Falke hosiery, they have a good wide waistband providing a very comfortable all day wear.
I do have to wear additional socks to stop my feet from rubbing, but that’s just me.
Secrets of hosiery
Today I’m goiung to reveal one of the secrets of hosiery.
This is what goes on behind the doors of a hosiery wearer. Yes extra socks to prevent lace tights from rubbing my feet. I usually forget to do this and end up with sore feet for the next day. I tend to find the brightest coloured socks in an un contrastiung pattern to not match my tights. Hey, I’m not going to pretend they’re not there.
These tights are my second pair of Golden Lady floral lace. This time given to me by my pal LT, the first sadly died when I applied too much pressure and pushed my hand through them. They are an ace clear pattern and because of the material, feels crochet-ee keep you warm in autumn weather.
What a great pattern!
What a great pattern! These are fantastic! One of my Christmas presents from my good friend JC. She done well. All the tights she got me have been gorgeous and just what this blog is about.
I don’t know what, who they are but I love the pattern of everything. There’s swirls, flowers, holes. So much to take in. A great pair of fishnets.
Fancy a bit of deep sea disco fishing
Fancy a bit of deep sea disco fishing. Pink fishnets! Did I want to make a statement today or what. These are Philippe Matignon, macro fishnet elasticated matt tights.
I’m not sure people noticed them with my long skirt but then again I’m not sure if it’s because they had noticed them but were too embarrassed to mention them. (My skirt did have a side split) That’s the effect fishnets have on people. Are they too sexy to comment on?
I had doubts about their comfort today but my thighs, it turned out, were not fat enough to cause too much rubbing and discomfort and the socks helped with friction on my soles.
