Trying to be cool
I follow the fashions and so I was trying to be cool when I wore these sheer spotted socks.
On my travels I’ve seen the trend to wear sheer socks so today I wore a jumpsuit and paired it with these socks by noq called whisper. Reinforced toes and a elasticated top. Very comfortable and not too tight. They held up well.
Did I look and feel cool? I’ve no idea. I didn’t feel cool and in my head I looked like I was just coming home from a day of work in the paddy fields. My legs are too short to show that skin gap between sock and trouser so if you did see skin it just looked like a middle aged woman showing her pop socks.
Back to Work
Back to work today after being off for so long! My first day of a gradual return. Thought I’d better not overdo it with this pair of delightful tights. Pamela Mann big hearts.
At first I thought it was a double width heart seam but they turned out to be a double heart front and back with a plain sheer side. The pattern filled my legs so it didn’t look like a seam but a full cover design. They were comfortable and bold fitted well. I usually find their “one size” is a bit long but not today, they were perfect!
Tights in August?!
What does this mean? Tights in August?! Has global warming changed our environment that much? Well I think a a bit.
So the month started with this pair of tights. One of my bulk buys from China. If you remember I had bought two lots of bulk buy and you will notice in the next few posts that some of these will be of the same patterns. This is one with bows on them which is the same pattern as my post from March “Bows for the Big Day“. This batch seemed to fit better with a slightly longer leg which meant less tight droppage. I still had to pull up!
Where have I been? Well I’ve been a bit lazy and not posted for a few weeks. I’ve been into the last few cycles of my chemotherapy and to be honest, it’s really taken a lot out of me. I should get back to normal pretty soon and due to the laziness, the rubbish summer and the start of more autumnal weather it means I’ve got so much more to share.
When love means love
Ahh this is an improvement, when love means love. A single heart motif this time from the internet batch of the last post “When love is not love”. Ok the motif is still not as clear as can be but it is recognisable as a heart. Better!
When love is not love
When love is not love, when they get presented with these! This is a pair of internet batch specials, a double heart motif on sheer tights. So far the patterns on these tights have been fairly ok. These are the first where I’ve gone “Hmmm, why have I got blobs on my legs.” Not good!
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.
News from China
Good news from China! I got some more tights!! Woo hoo!
I ordered many pairs of tights from a well known internet site and have finally received one batch. They are a collection of sheer tights in various patterns. They seemed on the smaller side and needed a bit of stretching to feel comfortable, so much stretching I thought it would be my last. There was a lot of pulling up which is never a pretty sight and again adds to the possibilty of hole making.
I like them, no I do like them, but I am a sucker for the price and all those patterns!
