Trying to be cool
I follow the fashions and so I was trying to be cool when I wore these sheer spotted socks.
On my travels I’ve seen the trend to wear sheer socks so today I wore a jumpsuit and paired it with these socks by noq called whisper. Reinforced toes and a elasticated top. Very comfortable and not too tight. They held up well.
Did I look and feel cool? I’ve no idea. I didn’t feel cool and in my head I looked like I was just coming home from a day of work in the paddy fields. My legs are too short to show that skin gap between sock and trouser so if you did see skin it just looked like a middle aged woman showing her pop socks.
I had a substitute hosier this week. This is my friend TR. She was wearing Marks and Spencer tights and I was wearing trousers. The gorgeous spotted pattern was bold and extremely eye catching which is why I had to add them to the blog.
The more difficult heart shape
These are the more difficult heart shape pattern.
I feel sorry for the humble dot design. Dots never hurt a soul and then comes along these “heart” shapes which are so very indistinct, I misplaced them in the dot category. this is one of the hazards of cheap tights. great when they work. Not a great loss when they ladder but sometimes they don’t quite pull off a pattern.
Unfortunately, or luckily, a got a toe ladder so these have been banished.
Dots, I’m not so keen
Spots, I like, dots, I’m not so keen. Last post I mentioned the adoration of a spot pattern. Today it’s dots. Now you may think they are the same thing but they don’t make my heart and eyes enlarge in the same way a spot design does. Maybe it’s because I’m quite short sighted and to be able to appreciate the pattern I have to get quite close and stare.
This pair has been designed to be a little bit more interesting by adding a grid feature. From my China batch!
“Oroblu Miss”ed me
Over the Summer months I’ve “Oroblu Miss”ed me looking at all the beautiful hosiery I could buy. Granted Summer probably isn’t the season for tights so the range of designs has been a bit sparse. I did manage to grab some out of season specials so all was not lost.
I got these out and look at the detail! A dotted waist band and a faux panty line for modesty, just in case you’ve spend all your money on silly expensive tights and none on knickers. I was impressed a nice, flash touch I thought.
These are Oroblu “Miss” tights with a clever barbed wire design made up of spots and stripes and a polka dot garter pattern with a bow round the back just to add a little more femininity.
They were lovely. Great design, hidden specials and they felt smooth and silky due to their sheer quality.
I did get a shock at the end of the day. My dress was silky and lined but I found some snags in them… Here on the left leg. I don’t remember them when I put them on and because they are such a well made hosiery I don’t remember having to pull them up either. I must, I must moisturise my hands. It’s the only thing I can muster that could possibly cause this damage, dry skin!
