I’m gently, gently getting back to the posts. Can’t guarantee anything v regular but here it goes
So these are a previous pair. Originally worn during my brother’s wedding 3 years ago! Phew that only seems like last summer. Orublu peony. A few nicks due to my increasing clumsiness but a good looking pair of tights with a bit of surprise bouquet of flowers.
A terrible year
What a terrible year it’s been. I hope everyone has been well. My tights have taken a bit of a back seat lately and with me wearing them less this will remain the default position.
However when the occasion arises, the tights will still be with us!
These lovely ‘uns are oroblu azeleas. A beautiful floral arrangement which will break up an outfit of pure black to bring in a bit of pizzazz!
New dog socks
I have got new dog socks because that’s what you do when you get a new dog.
I like the ear detail and the paws on the sole.
Winter Selection 2
Winter selection 2.
Not too exciting. Just some warming pairs of thick tights. Big problem with some of these winter selection offers, and it’s not just these three but from all, is the fall down rate. I’m pulling up some tights everytime I get up ans after every couple of steps. It doesn’t make me look very chic and sophisticated.
Happy Christmas 2019
Happy Christmas 2019! Quick write up today. Posted this pic on Instagram this morning so here is the low down.
In my Christmas stocking this morning, I got some tights! Hurray. These green and red striped tights was one if them and being the big day an’ all I had to put these on today.
The effect was great, the feel was good, however there was a bit of anti-gravity effect.
Winter selection 1
This is winter selection 1. Just like American TV, hoseoffun is having a Christmas break. Unlike American TV, it won’t last from November to February!
However like all holiday TV, hoseoffun will be doing compilation programmes. Unlike holiday TV, these will not be old clips spliced together but tights y’all seen before and worn recently for this cold weather.
Now the new thing that you may have noticed is the change of model. I’ve used my display leg. I wore these tights without taking any pictures so I needed a way to show you lots of tights quickly and efficiently. The leg was very effective. Why can’t human legs be as slippery as plastic ones?
These are the first three, stripes. Two pairs of long socks and my ‘elf’¹ tights.
Elf¹ so called because I wear these at Christmas and think elves wear them.
A whole afternoon of planning
I spent a whole afternoon planning an outfit and then the hosiery wearers worse nightmare happened.
My outfit was going to be something dark with any choice of blackish tights. As the afternoon went by my memory recalled a pair of tan shoes that I’d never worn. I had to change my dress choice.
I opted for a purple and beige dress and hunted for a tan background pair of tights. There weren’t that many so my shopping list now has included patterned tanned hosiery.
I chose a Jonathan Aston leaf pattern which matched brilliantly with the florals on the dress. Pretty chuffed with the results I showed my husband. All smiles but after a twirl his beady eye caught sight of the hosiery wearer’s nightmare… ladders!
All the way from my toes to above the knee! Oh no!!
I had to then start scavenging for another tan based tights and it took me ages to find the last pair. Finally I settled for this floral number.
It is truly winter when tights are a norm for your morning getting ready routine. I’ve been grateful for the thick woolly types these last couple of weeks but haven’t/forgotten to take pics of.
These are checked ones from that China batch, which were wore when it first started cooling down. Remember quite silky feeling tights but needing superman pants to keep them up. Well these are also my indestructible batch too. I’m not keen and they don’t seem to ladder or snag and I am trying cos I’m trying to get rid. Blasphemy!!!
What do you think?
Hmmmm, what do you think? Are these a keeper?
After a day of wearing these oroblu, I found they had snags and a hole just above knee. You know the type, where some velcro has accidentally come into contact.
So do I chuck or do I keep…
In true hose of fun stylee, I’m gonna wash them and wear at least one more time. At least I’m giving them a proper send off.
