I am Hosius Funious!

Tonight Matthew I going to be Hosius Funious.If you want to pretend to be wearing gladiator boots then these are the tights to wear. Oroblu “vision” are a tan pair of hosiery with a below knee pattern to imitate a Greek/Roman sandal.Very clever. The main body has an added detail. If I didn’t wear pants I might look like the cover but I do so I just look like a mad woman so no pics there. Now I am off for a bit of an afternoon pub crawl so what shoes should I wear. Here are the nominations…1) Too glittery […]

Eye catching outfit

Want to create an eye catching outfit, then these moustache tights will be just up your street. Pairing them with work black, I like to break up the seriousness with a fine pair of statement hosiery. Love these!

Full steam ahead

Full steam ahead, I’m back on top form with regular posts. Well that’s what I’m hoping to do. These beauties are a grey tramline design from Marilyn, called inventively “shine E15”. The grey bits were slightly shiny and the tramlines were well defined. Good. My only problem was trying to keep the lines straight. I think it’s my funny walk! 😆

The most hardy of all

The most hardy of all hosiery are the ones we don’t have much love for. Following on from my “number of casualties” post, I thought I, I, let’s try to get rid of some of those pairs from a China batch. These tights are indeed value for money, and they did have quite a silky smooth feel to them but they do fall a bit and leave you with a loose crotch. Superhero pants are required! Other than a few snags these tights, I predict will outlast them all!

A kaleidoscope of colour

Look! I’ve created a kaleidoscope of colour! Ahhh beautiful, it’s my version of the “dumbo” drunk montage. For any of you who want to see the hosiery … I went to see the Rocky Horror Show and had a blast. It’s a great way to dress up in a ridiculous way and show off those stockings you’ve stuffed in the wardrobe. I even put on false eyelashes. Yes they are feathers and no my vision wasn’t great, they do get in the way. The hosiery is by legavenue, rainbow holdups.

The number of casualties

By trying to be cost effective the number of casualties seem to be high. When I started this blog, I wanted to share the dozen or so patterned tights I owned. Within weeks I realised my collection would need to grow in order to sustain my postings. Within months I had accumulated many pairs. This last year after filling four underbed lidded boxes and at least two large bags, I made the decision to downsize the collection. You may have noticed I am wearing previously worn tights more, and I am finding that I’m losing them. One of the latest […]

Hoarding well

Thank goodness I’ve been hoarding well. These tights were worn months ago and I thought I’d forgotten what they were but in my stash of things to throw out was the packaging so all is well. I can tell you these are Jonathan Aston “abstract” tights.

Walking Gear

This was my walking gear for a day out with friends at Rutland Water. Trust Hoseoffun to always try to glam up any occasion, either that or people just think I’m completely bonkers. Green fishnets from ASOS was what I opted for and as you all know fishnets on bare feet can cause blisters and chafing. Usually I put on a pair of socks over the tights but what about under the tights, would that be better? Well today is the time to find out! For the interests of science, the science of hosiery, I wore one sock beneath and […]

For the Summer

It’s been sooo hot this year my hosiery wearing has been a bit haphazard but for the summer if you can’t bear to bare those legs then I suggest a pair of hold ups like these Trasparenze ones called Oro. These were the last pair of hold ups I wore from May. They are ideal for weather that is very changeable, mebbe not the sweltering stuff of recent weeks. I suggest a thinner pair for these conditions. As you can see these were higher denier with a glittery, shimmering floral design. Trasparenze is a brand I rate. Good solid hosiery, […]
