Lara Wolford not Croft
This is Lara Wolford not Croft. So no utility belts here just a normal day of shopping.
Here and next I’m showing a couple of wolford tights. This is “Lara” a thick pair of hosiery in grey and a black tramline side stripe.
As always Wolford perform very well. The soft, cosy, comfortable feel was what I expected and got.
Here’s some delayed hosiery on display. I’ve cheated a bit this year and thought I’d try a different tactic. Previously I’d post with fresh pictures and a rushed blurb just before setting off to work. This year I’ve delayed posting and thought I’d save time by scheduling them. Both methods have their good points but today’s post will highlight a bad point of the scheduled method. These tights were worn five months ago!
These are Falke “anthra new”. A raised lined pattern, ridges I suppose in a not really black, not really grey but slate colour. They were lovely, soft, warm, comfortable.
I’m causing a stir
I’m causing a stir with these Gipsy Cyclone tights. What a great design! The black on near skin effect of the pattern really make it stand out and the spacing between lines stops it from being boring.
Send for Emilio!
I didn’t want a fussy day, I wanted smart and business like so send for Emilio! These Emilio Cavallini tights were perfect! A warm, which was the most important element today, simple tram line garter effect mock stocking. There was a bit of falling downage so were they thigh length garters or knee length ones? Anyway nice and soft to give that lovely cosy feel.
“Oroblu Miss”ed me
Over the Summer months I’ve “Oroblu Miss”ed me looking at all the beautiful hosiery I could buy. Granted Summer probably isn’t the season for tights so the range of designs has been a bit sparse. I did manage to grab some out of season specials so all was not lost.
I got these out and look at the detail! A dotted waist band and a faux panty line for modesty, just in case you’ve spend all your money on silly expensive tights and none on knickers. I was impressed a nice, flash touch I thought.
These are Oroblu “Miss” tights with a clever barbed wire design made up of spots and stripes and a polka dot garter pattern with a bow round the back just to add a little more femininity.
They were lovely. Great design, hidden specials and they felt smooth and silky due to their sheer quality.
I did get a shock at the end of the day. My dress was silky and lined but I found some snags in them… Here on the left leg. I don’t remember them when I put them on and because they are such a well made hosiery I don’t remember having to pull them up either. I must, I must moisturise my hands. It’s the only thing I can muster that could possibly cause this damage, dry skin!
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.
Grey Veneziana Gilda tights today. 60den, but didn’t feel it. They were comfortable and not too tight. They had a shorter gusset and body so I did feel that bit pull down but the pattern of mixed chevrons and lines was clear eventhough they were a different colour to the usual black.
I also thought I should share what I wore yesterday, a repeat wear of these purple criss cross tights.

Bacara 05 by Gabriella today.
Here’s the straight on view,
So a spiral pattern throughout the leg broken up with geometric shapes along the side making an unusual and eye catching pattern.
They felt a bit scratchy when I put them on but I have been wearing some quite glamorous hosiery lately and the feeling wasn’t uncomfortable just different.
Keeping warm with the hoses
Are you keeping warm with the hoses? Remember to wrap up and stay warm by wearing those thick woolly tights that you’ve got deep inside those drawers of yours. These are due for retirement, I’ve cleverly hidden the numerous holes from your view by positioning them on the back. Hey I don’t see them so that’s ok.
I am very excited today because I’ve received a few pairs in the post that I’m planning for a Valentine theme week, towards Valentine’s Day and an animal print week that I’m going to put on this coming week so remember to stay tuned for some extremely exciting tights!
