Winter Collection Gabriella
I chose to wear from their Winter Collection, Gabriella Bonie tights today. I really did need the 200 denier hosiery and was kept extremely warm all day.
My only issue with them was, eventhough they were size 2 (smallest), I experienced a lot of sag and the pattern of snowflakes did not show as well as I’d hoped.
To compare, the main picture are the tights stretched. This smaller photo is what I really looked like today. Notice the wrinkles at the bottom.
Skulls socks today, since you and I have established that socks are indeed part of the hosiery family. 😆
I’ve had these for years. Bought off the local market. I wear socks when it’s cold but I don’t want to feel too imprisoned. Being on my feet all day has caused my calves to be comparatively muscular and large so I do feel that socks do get a bit stretched over that area. Just me being self concious, but it’s never stopped me developing the hoseoffun style.
Soft to the touch
Soft to the touch, ooooh, that was my very first thoughts when I opened these Trasparenze tights. I nearly didn’t put them on. I could have stood there all day just touching them.
They are called Odeline and with an intricate herringbone pattern.
I’ve have always been impressed with Trasparenze hosiery. Always comfortable, always luxurious and always captivating patterns.
Tienga tights by Jonathan Aston are becoming my favourite tights. This season I’ve worn them three times! Today, back in November when I only just mentioned a repeat wear and then way, way back at the beginning of the season in September when it was a new wear.
I stand by my original thoughts and the pattern is absolutely fab! What can I say? They catch the eye. The pattern is clear and different and fun. They’re comfortable, don’t slip or move, aren’t too tight around my belly and they have a good grip on the legs which make them so sturdy. I always do a double take when I see my reflection and to be honest I even look just for the sake of it!
Show time Trasparenze!
You must read this to see more pictures of these Show time Trasparenze tights.
Spring has sprung and the warmer weather will eventually follow and because I’ve stopped adding to my collection I’ve got some really pretty items left to wear before this hosiery season is over.
Starting with this wonderful pair by Trasparenze, called “Show”. These were are very comfortable wear. Warm and cosy for this still cold day but with hidden features that delighted me.
The pattern is a coloured floral back pattern of red roses
Finally, always a sign that they’re proud of their product, and they sure are, waistband details! This has their name included and for added flair, bows, roses and matching detail to garter.
Last of the bargains
Last of the bargains from my Tesco haul and I must say the last two pairs, this one and the last one, have been a surprise wear. Even though a bit long on the gusset area the tights on the legs have felt very supported and sturdy. I was never conscious of any falling down and the wrinkling was to a minimum. Very comfortable and the suction feeling when on was just right, no squashed toes.
Lastly, to brighten up my day I noticed all the spots I had on!
Bargain Bucket Specials
Welcome to bargain bucket special! Remember these,
well, I wore the sparkly multicoloured ones a few weekends ago and yesterday I wore the chevron ones for work. They were great, really comfortable, no slippage and they looked fab. Just the spotty ones to go.
Playing the blues
Playing the blues today, well wearing them. This is my third pair of ombre tights from China, Mengliluo, in blue, to navy, to nearly black. A good pair of bright tights that don’t stand out too much, just in case you’re only a beginner in this patterned hosiery look.
I have become the Cordoba Contortionist wearing these tights. These are Fiore Cordoba tights and I have twisted my body with such skill in order to show you the back floral pattern on these hosieries. As usual I have had the Fiore silky smooth feel and the appreciation of a great design.
I was in geometric heaven with this pair by Via Spiga. Called Geometric I loved the big bold pattern today. It was clear and sharp, had a reinforced toe and the tights feel pretty good to wear too. A huge thumbs up for these, brilliant!
