Tied Up – Trasparenze Chelsea Holdups
Looks like I’m a bit tied up with this pair of holdups called Chelsea. The pattern resembles a rope wrapping round the whole leg in a interlinking wavy way. The tops are slighty lacy with a good amount of clingy rubber to provide them with gravity defying properties. They stayed in position all day with no feeling of any looseness or slippage. They are white and I mean very white so at times I felt a bit clownish but that’s due to me not wearing coloured tights very often and having to have an extra long work day I also put on shoes that didn’t match the outfit. However, I can always count on Trasparenze to provide comfortable and fun hosiery.
Seconds anyone? After a busy weekend and Monday, here are two pairs to sate your appetite.
Sunday helpings was the spotty affair you can see above. Simply Vera by Vera Wang. Control tops to shape you up. I just find that means being squashed up and I feel like Houdini when I’m pulling them up.
Today’s main course is this old pair I’ve pulled out of my drawer. A vertical pattern of links and chains.
Quite difficult to photograph because the design is textured and they’re thick tights.
Later thoughts… Quite soon after putting on the chains and links pair of tights I noticed a little hole. A bit later I noticed another little hole. By the end of the day my tights looked a bit moth ridden with quite a few little holes scattered around my legs. The elastic in these tights had deteriorated and everytime I pulled on them I made a hole. I thought tights could last forever, I was wrong, elastic rots.
