I wore these Christmas anklets for this most jolly of seasons. I bought these from Next outlet for a quid and they are brilliant. Cute floral design with a bit of pink bling at the top. Comfortable and they didn’t slip or twist to my surprise. Wore them with a maxi dress so unless I showed you, you would have thought I was wearing a normal pair of tights. 😀
Here’s a bit of cosmic gold! Look at these.
It looked a bit chilly when the day started and so I wore these black opaque Pretty Polly tights but the day became muggy and quite hot later. I wanted a bit of glam too so these fit the bill with a gold glitter backseam. I’ve still got some sparkly on my car seat.
Next to shimmer
Next to shimmer! I got these in the Next outlet and they were a bargain price so I bought four pairs altogether, which I will be showcasing over the next few days. If your size is available, bargain buckets, outlet joints and sale items are my favourite haunts for tights. They are a treasure trove for unusally patterned hosiery or out of this world colours.
This shimmery blue pair provided a bit of glitter to my day. They were very scratchy due to the “glimmer” element. They did have a reinforced toe so at least the scratchiness did not affect the toes.
Primark Sparkly Bows
The cold has got me. I tried so hard to be fair and to wear my winners before resorting to the remainders but my winners didn’t win because they were thick winter barriers. I have had to delve to the bottom of the storage box and pull out a few cold friendlier tights. This pair was one of them, at least they had a bit of sparkle.
Backed up with Laces and Bows
She turned her back and left in a flurry of laces and bows. That’s the effect I would have had if I were a heroine in a novel. These are Gabriella Carla holdups, received from legitup. A stunning looking pair of holdups with a lacey top, block black colour and revealing backs. The pattern of laces and bows had a little sparkle. They were comfortable and my only niggle was the silicon strip wasn’t very sticky. I had to endure quite a bit of cleaning (of the strip) and pulling up (of the stocking). This I think led to the pattern movement so the backs became the sides, if you get my meaning. Always looking for an excuse, because none of my hosiery is bad, they were new – and I had moisturised – so maybe that’s why they became unstuck.
I had glitter legs today and the effect was achieved by wearing a pair of Tesco, glitter tights. They sparkled and shimmered in the light. I was mesmerised by the colours it emitted. I could sit and watch the rainbows dance in front of my eyes for hours, like a moth to a light bulb.
BIG probem though, bagginess! You might be able to see the colours they produced but you might also be able to see my wrinkled ankles as well as my wrinkled knees, I felt like a newbie circus performer who’s been given the last acrobat’s full body leotard, baring in mind that I’m only 5 foot and the last performer’s inside leg length was 5 foot. I’m hoping a wash will shrink because as you can read the colours were fireflies foxtrotting in the garden of eden hypnotising simple folk like me.
Animal print week, APW finale!!! Bet you didn’t guess it was going to be mermaid! Not sure if the tail should be on the back or front, finally after a bit of toing and froing, this and thating it’s been decided to be on the front. The back is a good spot but like seamed hosiery have to be placed in the perfect position to gain full mermaid effect.
From a supplier in China, they come in both black and natural. The tail is glittery and sparkly thus giving a shimmery scale feel to it. I love this pattern!
After a day of wear they unfortunately laddered
Fortunately the ladder runs along the mermaid tail and looks like part of the pattern, they also kept falling down and the glitter was a bit scratchy on my skin. They are such a fun pair that I’m going to get another wear out of them especially if I’m a bit clever with the nail varnish.
Hope you all enjoyed APW, I’ve had so much fun doing this week.
Quick post today! I’ve spent too much time looking at the sales and buying more tights. AHHH!
Today’s tights are a sparkly spotty affair from Morrisons.
