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 […]

I am Hosius Funious!

Tonight Matthew I’m 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 […]

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! 😆
