Fun with Falke
I’m having fun with Falke today. These were gratefully supplied by luxury legs. I won a competition and these were the prize. Micronet tights.
As with all Falke hosiery, they have a good wide waistband providing a very comfortable all day wear.
I do have to wear additional socks to stop my feet from rubbing, but that’s just me.
Here’s some delayed hosiery on display. I’ve cheated a bit this year and thought I’d try a different tactic. Previously I’d post with fresh pictures and a rushed blurb just before setting off to work. This year I’ve delayed posting and thought I’d save time by scheduling them. Both methods have their good points but today’s post will highlight a bad point of the scheduled method. These tights were worn five months ago!
These are Falke “anthra new”. A raised lined pattern, ridges I suppose in a not really black, not really grey but slate colour. They were lovely, soft, warm, comfortable.
Falke Squiggly Rose
Falke Squiggly Rose design. I don’t think they have names for their hosiery. These are in “stone”, so a dark grey with an even darker swirl which then developes into a squiggly rose. Falke are wonderfully comfortable hosiery maker. With an always luxurious soft feel. The patterns are forever special.
Hopefully you can see the close up. I should really have taken a picture of the reverse side because that was interesting.
Fabulous Falke tights today. I’ve tagged them as purple but the actual colour is violetta. I always forget how comfortable Falke hoseiry is. The waistband is wide and is name marked. The colour seemed dark in the shade but when the sun came out they shone with a warm violet. Beautiful!
The toes were supposed to look like this, with a slight reinforcement but with my feet and that funny walk I have, it didn’t take long before this happened and I got strangled toes. That’s the problem with fishnets. The hole size of this pair of tights were not as cauterising as some so not a big fault. Please excuse the neglected toe nails, did I ever tell you I’m really lazy!
These are Falke tights, blue with a zigzag pattern. I’ve called this post Blue Nostalgia because I first wore them on my holiday to Vancouver last November. Ahhh the memories! From a distance, and before your eyes start playing visual tricks, the zigzags look like checks to me.
