Etna is active… again
Etna is active… again. Double meaning in this, one hosiery connected and the other is a personal announcement.
So 1, back in February I wore these Gabrielle Etna tights. It was cold and they were perfect. Etna being active is just another way to say they’re a repeat wear.
2, on a personal level. I started this blog because at the time I had just finished chemotherapy treatment for bowel cancer. I was well and needed a bit of a creative outlet. When this post goes live I will have just had an operation to remove a rather large mass on my ovary which from tests so far the doctors think maybe a bowel secondary. Fingers crossed it’s a bit of cheese! I have saved up some posts which I’ll have scheduled to go live over the next week or so but after that I may be a bit silent due to my recovery and the fact that wearing tights will be a bit uncomfortable and repetitive. As soon as the hosiery wearing restarts posts will reappear. I still have loads of stuff to show you which will also be fun to wear.
Back to norm
It’s mid October and we’re back to norm. The trees are starting to look bare and there’s always a slight chill in the air. We have ways of making it less horrible, by wearing these tights again.
Tesco chevron hosiery, bargain bucket deal last seen in March when I went for a quick grocery shop and found these. Paired with a red suede dress and knee high boots, I had the sophisticated urban look to a tee!
Grey Veneziana Gilda tights today. 60den, but didn’t feel it. They were comfortable and not too tight. They had a shorter gusset and body so I did feel that bit pull down but the pattern of mixed chevrons and lines was clear eventhough they were a different colour to the usual black.
I also thought I should share what I wore yesterday, a repeat wear of these purple criss cross tights.
More chevrons for today’s second post. These are what I wore today, a more wool feel grey, chevron and line pattern pair of tights. A pair from my collection before the blog started so not a brand I can remember. These are soft to the touch, woolly and warm. I’m feeling the cold this week so again they’ve hit the spot and are keeping me cosy.
Like Mount Etna
Like Mount Etna when she’s erupting this pair will keep you toasty. From their “winter collection,” Gabriella hosiery have delivered again. I felt ready for a winter battle when I unwrapped these. They had a reassuring thickness and with a reinforced toe section they meant business. The pattern was more distinct from the back than the front, maybe due to more stretch on that side. A satisfying pair of tights for the cold.
