Too many pairs!
I have too many pairs! I have to post quite a few rewears and I need to stop buying new ones. My source of retail therapy gone, what can I shop for now? Ahhhhhhh!
My problem with repeat wear posting is my laziness. I grab the nearest store of tights and pick a random pair. This means the nearest store isn’t the box where I’ve painstakingly collected toilet rolls and carefully inserted a pair of freshly laundered hosiery and then meticulously labelled with brand and name. It’s the latest pile of clean tights that are waiting to be catalogued on my spare bed or stuffed into a carrier bag under the bed because I’ve had overnight visitors. So my rewears tend to be recent posts themselves. If I’m organised, which I’m sure I will be, they will be from vintage posts. Well that’s what I’ll be planning.
So here is Oroblu Lucilla, chosen via the first method. Nearest, appropriate clean pair. Blog “Oroblu weather” on the 21st March 2018,
I had a substitute hosier this week. This is my friend TR. She was wearing Marks and Spencer tights and I was wearing trousers. The gorgeous spotted pattern was bold and extremely eye catching which is why I had to add them to the blog.
I am spotted again. I do like a spot pattern, I don’t know it but as soon as I’ve got on a pair of spotted tights, a sense of relief passes over me. The pattern never disappoints on a spot hosiery and the bigger the bettter.
These are from my China batch, yes them again. I told you I had bought loads! A lovely silky sheer feel to them and in this case a brilliant large spot design.
Back to “here’s one I’ve worn before”
Back to “here’s one I’ve worn before”, this is referring to the lack of new tights I’ve not worn and I do still have a few stashed away and still adding to. A comfy pair last worn and blogged about in Next spotty. I love the big spots on these and they were part of a bargain lot I bought. Hopefully these pictures a bit clearer, at least they’re in the light.
Spots in a Row
What a treat, spots in a row! This pair is from my China batch. Coming up to operation time , my belly was bloated and the only tights comfortable enough for me to wear were brand new pairs.
The spots on these are big and quite fun. The stocking of sheer variety. Problems occurred later in the day when they got a bit tighter around the stomach region and they fell a bit.
Next Next spots
Next Next spots are me third offering from my treasures I got a week ago. The spots are fairly large and against the tan/natural background they stood out really well. They were described at work as a daring pair of tights but they obviously hadn’t been witness to my numerous other offerings which I do consider daring and wacky and out of this world. With a reinforced toe they were comfortable and I have been chuffed to bits with this magical hoarde I bought.
“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!
¡Vamos Tienga! What prizes did the winners and runner ups receive from being marvellous hosiery? The answer to that is they get worn again and I plan their wear in a very precise and meticulous way.
¡Vamos Tienga! has a double meaning today. First being Let’s go Tienga, let’s make this day worthwhile and joyful. The second there’s a hole in my beloved Tienga and so I will have to let them go at the end of today. Jonathan Aston Tienga tights was first featured in the first month of Hose Of Fun and made such a good impression that I wore them again in April Tienga!
The reason they were winners? The pattern. It’s clearly defined and visible. It’s unusual and has pizzazz. The tights look quite long before I put them on, so long I worry that they’ll be excess and I’ll have bunching around the ankles and not enough stretch to see the pattern. As you can see this pair of hosiery does no such thing. They have impressed me each time I’ve worn them and it is with great sadness that today will be their last.
Oroblu floral ladders
The weather went cold AGAIN last week and I had to break into my secret stash and wear these marvellous holdups. Oroblu, Extase, a “tulle-based lace effect stay-up stockings.” With “a delicate, vertical floral pattern alternates with polka dots.”
They were fantastic. They looked great and they stayed up all day. The pattern is very pretty and with a bit of shuffling, I suppose you could rotate them round and make them seem like you have several different pairs of tights. You know one day the flowers are on the side, the next the ladder, polka dots are there instead.
