This is my faux Christmas post. As I have mentioned before I am either still in hospital or I’ve been allowed to go home and heal, both situations are not ideal for hosiery wearing so this post was aptly chosen for the yuletide edition because of their cheekiness. They bring a little cheer into your lives.
Legsavenue “Hardcore net pantyhose” it says on the packet. Quite comfortable, gorgeous design. A crochet style fishnet creating a diamond, criss cross pattern. Having such big holes made them a bit difficult to put on with the holes becoming tourniquets on my toes. Then the interesting bit came along, a slight change in weave. The toes became a smaller fishnet which more or less worked to save my digits but with a bit of wriggling and stretching I did get a couple of strangled toe moments. They are not a thin thread but a thick string so still felt very warming despite the gigantic fishnet holes.
Fabulous Falke tights today. I’ve tagged them as purple but the actual colour is violetta. I always forget how comfortable Falke hoseiry is. The waistband is wide and is name marked. The colour seemed dark in the shade but when the sun came out they shone with a warm violet. Beautiful!
The toes were supposed to look like this, with a slight reinforcement but with my feet and that funny walk I have, it didn’t take long before this happened and I got strangled toes. That’s the problem with fishnets. The hole size of this pair of tights were not as cauterising as some so not a big fault. Please excuse the neglected toe nails, did I ever tell you I’m really lazy!
CK back again
CK back again for a gin night out. These crochet patterned CK tights are lovely. I like them a lot. They can be very warming and I have been struggling with this sudden cold weather. I just can’t get warm. Eventhough fishnets look very draughty I’ve always found them to be able to resist the cold. That’s clever sceince that is!
Freezing Weather Tights
These are definitely freezing weather tights. Posted last year these Via Spiga tights have featured a few times. The first as the warmest tights in the world, next as a base for one of my upcycling projects and then just with Dennis when I did a couple of re-wears. They are very warm but rather than being just a plain opaque pair of black tights, they are just that little bit more exciting with their woollen crochet look.
Best Halloween Smile
I’ve put on my best Halloween smile and found the easiest costume ever and have become an oriental, old Wednesday Addams. Donning a pair of Legsavenue Itsy Bitsy Spider net pantyhose I got into the Halloween spirit. Shame everyone doesn’t appreciate this look all year round. I do and I don’t usually have to use Halloween to dress up scarily but I do use Halloween to do the entire outfit. With a front seam which could easily turn around and become a back seam it crocheted into a cool web design and then up to a scary spider hiding in your skirts. I loved it!
First Post 2016-17
Welcome to the first post of 2016-17!
The weather today was not great, grey, dull, cooler so the hosiery came out to play. I always knew this blog would give people a whole lot of useless information and as you can see my first blog last year was when I set up around the third week of Sept. By then I had been wearing tights for about a week. Which means that the weather changed considerably around mid Sept, which is happening again this year too. See I’m offering meteorological insight as well as leg fashion advice!
This year being my second year of blogging will include new additions and also my award winners and runner ups.
Today’s tights of the day are Golden Lady diamond fishnets. Winner of May 2016, worn three times and unfortunately deceased after this wear due to holes in both big toe areas. They won because of the gorgeous, clear and vibrant pattern. The sun failed to materialise so they also lasted the whole day.
Crochet Floral Fishnets
These crochet floral fishnets and the diamond patterned fishnets have been a surprisingly successful. Bought from a discount hardware store they have been been excellent value.
They are Golden Lady and this pair consist of a floral pattern
and the most impressive bit was the reinforced toes to stop them getting strangled!
These fantastic fishnets were bought from a discount hardware store. They are Golden Lady tights, diamond patterned fishnets. Wearing them on the first, very late hot summery day of the year and on a trip to London they had great impact. The pattern is fantastic and I do love the way patterned fishnets feel so classy. My only problem with them is they start to rub the soles of my feet if I’m doing any amount of walking.
Mona Marella fishnets
I’ve been a bit busy lately and will be for the next few days, at least, so I’m posting late and also I’m going to cheat and use my scheduled posting to look as though I’m really efficient and good.
This morning’s post is of these Mona Marella fishnet tights. I love fishnets, I love the way they look and I love the way I can look sexy and glamourous without putting in much effort into it.
Once on these were fine, I found them a bit difficult to put on. My toes kept getting in the way and the fishnets are quite thin and I thought I might snap them if I pulled them too much especially when the toes were in the way.
I had to go barelegged later in the day because at the moment my belly is too fat, too many biscuits and treats at work. Luckily for me the climate is getting warmer so I didn’t freeze. BTW I am going to make pale, bare, white legs trendy, watch this space…
