Have I achieved the impossible by finding non slippage footsies that actually don’t slip?
These are Calvin Klein toeless yoga socks. They have a sole grip and individual toes.
When my mum visited Japan a few years ago she bought a pair of toed socks and told me how comfortable they were and how they fit her extremely small feet so well. I put it down to the toes. When I found these in tkmaxx, I thought I should consumer test them and then possibly buy more as presents.
I’m not keen on in-betweeny toes bits on flip flops so was a bit apprehensive. Quite comfortable, not much slippage. I will have to try different shoe heights to confirm but with a pair of inch and a half ankle boots, they didn’t move.
I liked them and they were an interesting conversation starter with everyone I showed!
So did I achieve the impossible. No. I thought I had, but on reflection these are not footsies. They are socks. My mission is still alive and kicking!
As usual I’m revealing the secrets of a hosiery wearer with this view of my fishnet protectors.
If I’m being an optimist then this is a two for one post.
Underneath this sexy exterior lies this! An extra pair of hosiery to stop the fishnets from rubbing my soles and causing blisters. The fishnets are Donna Karan signature collection micro tulle and the socks were a freebie with an order from China.
Yes they did protect, and yes I was aware of them all the time, and yes the sexy woman aura wasn’t as sexy.
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.
Pretty in socks
I am pretty in socks today. Gotcha! Not real socks. These are Pretty Polly secret socks. Sock like material for the sick bit and a nice soft denier feel for the grid pattern top bit. Lovely and comfortable even though on second look they are a ML size rather than an SM. Think the socks helped by being socks and staying quite firmly in place just under the knee. The description call them “secret” because you can hideaway the sock underneath a pair of boots but why would you want to do that, ay?
On a Winning Streak
The cherry has just been placed on top of the cake because I’m on a winning streak.
It seems I’m back on the horse and hosiery blogging is still on solid ground. It’s roughly my two year anniversary and to celebrate I’ve managed to win a competition! Yay! Yippee! So check out loveyourlegs for some fabulous tights. The prize will be shown as soon as I receive them, woo hoo double enjoyment, I’ll be getting a package through the post, so stay tuned.
Secrets of hosiery
Today I’m goiung to reveal one of the secrets of hosiery.
This is what goes on behind the doors of a hosiery wearer. Yes extra socks to prevent lace tights from rubbing my feet. I usually forget to do this and end up with sore feet for the next day. I tend to find the brightest coloured socks in an un contrastiung pattern to not match my tights. Hey, I’m not going to pretend they’re not there.
These tights are my second pair of Golden Lady floral lace. This time given to me by my pal LT, the first sadly died when I applied too much pressure and pushed my hand through them. They are an ace clear pattern and because of the material, feels crochet-ee keep you warm in autumn weather.
Care Package Surprise
I got a care package surprise from my friend SM and as well as the chocolate treats, candles, and the “feel better” knick knacks, it also included these Next giraffe socks. It made the week so much better!
I’m a sick lady so i’ll wear what I want
As well as wearing a repeat cycle of comfortable tights during my post op period, I have also been wearing patterned knee high socks. Check these out for maximum outfit coordination! Hey I’m at home and in theory no one can see me.
Alice and Olivia came for the day
Alice and Olivia came out to play. These are lace ruffle top knee highs from Pretty Polly Alice and Olivia range. A delightful floral lace sock with a ruffle top. Comfortable, stayed up. The ruffle top deserved to be shown for its uniqueness but I don’t quite know what the outfit combo should be. I started the day wearing a long dress which hid the socks. I changed into a shorter dress in the afternoon so I did look a little weird if you live in middle agedom, as I do. Leggings/skinny jeans would create a bulge where the ruffle was and trousers would hide them completely. Hmmm!
