Before Iceland, my 2016 holiday.
It looks like Iceland is the “in” place to go for a holiday and not boasting, this coming trip will be my second. However the days leading up to a visit to the land of fire and ice proved good practise for me. It got cold here in the UK! I had to pull out my woolliest tights which meant all those season award winners had to take a back seat and the elements took precedence. This is one of my standard winter pairs of hosiery worn last year under Winter’s Coming in October, and even though they are starting to look a bit worse for wear with a bit of thinning and the elastic is tightening and so they have shrunk a bit and fall down and crotches are likely to be found around knee level, they look wintery and keep me warm. This may be their last year.
Winter Collection Gabriella
I chose to wear from their Winter Collection, Gabriella Bonie tights today. I really did need the 200 denier hosiery and was kept extremely warm all day.
My only issue with them was, eventhough they were size 2 (smallest), I experienced a lot of sag and the pattern of snowflakes did not show as well as I’d hoped.
To compare, the main picture are the tights stretched. This smaller photo is what I really looked like today. Notice the wrinkles at the bottom.
