Fluttering up from France
My butterfly tattoo tights came fluttering up from France from new friends Collants.fr
an online shop selling hosiery. The tights by Le Bourget called Papillon were a good fit. Very comfortable with a wide, soft waistband. They felt smooth and silky, a sign of a good sheer and they didn’t fall down. The tattoo design of butterflies was clear and sat very nicely on the leg. The fun thing about tattoo tights is that they do make people think you have a massive tattoo on your leg so I can tell why this type of hosiery is quickly becoming the big thing for this year. I don’t usually wear toeless shoes with tights but because the cover art model was wearing them I thought I should too. They worked with this hosiery especially with their invisible toes. Added to that the nude colour of the tights gave an extremely summery look to my outfit.
The tights are described as an ankle pattern, I’ve just noticed mine turns out to be a whole leg pattern!
I worry about buying from overseas, but with collants.fr I didn’t need to be. Communication was great and I was given a consignment number so I could track my package. My parcel came neatly wrapped up with some promo stuff and a net wash bag. Very handy! Christine is very helpful and has a vast range of products which when the Autumn winds start to blow I will certainly have a more detailed look at.
Overall, a good experience from both ends. The service of collants.fr was great and as always exciting, I love getting packages, and the tights were excellent. Great feel, great look, great design.
Stop and Stare from Mystockings
I love mystockings! They are efficient, provide a quick and reliable service and their range of hosiery is beautiful. They stock a massive range of Ballet hosiery, started Maison Close and now Stop and Stare as well as a few others. Thank you Kriszta and the team!
So these arrived in their mystockings signature gold wrapping which eventhough you’ve bought the hosiery yourself makes it feel like your birthday again and again.
The Stop and Stare tights looked like this,
Musical dandelions, is as described. A tattoo print of a dandelion head blowing away in the wind with some seeds turning into musical notes. The tights were sleek and smooth with a silky sheer quality and a slight shimmer to them.
The tattoo print was very effective and did to some eyes look like a real tattoo. They are very comfortable due to the wide waistband which unfortunately for me rolled down and then caused a bit of droppage, that superhero second pair of knickers would have come in useful.
I have seen a few posts about Stop and Stare and they have some wonderful designs. Very unique and extremely eye catching. I need more!
