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. […]

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 […]

Truly winter

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.

Birthday treats

It’s that time of year and my three main birthday treats involved tummy, body and legs. I had a wonderful meal at Alchemilla in Nottingham. I got a new dress from ASOS. And I wore a pair of holdups that I’ve been waiting for a special occasion to put on. Where shall I start? Well this ain’t a food blog so you won’t find a restaurant review here. (The food was amazing and I felt very sick at the end  of the ten course taster menu, with three amuse-bouches and a fun palette cleanser, I count that as 14 courses […]

Getting a bit of culture

Mr. Hose and I are off work so we’re getting a bit of culture. The plan was to absorb some art with visits to Nottingham Contemporary gallery and one we’d not tried, the New Art Exchange and lunch. My look of the day had to reflect this bohemian day. My ASOS suede red dress came out with my knee high boots and my Gudrun and Gudrun oversized cardigan. The best hosiery to match these were obviously a pair of distinctive net tights like these Calvin Klein crochet fishnets. With my hair plaited I felt properly arty farty. Underneath this persona […]
