A terrible year
What a terrible year it’s been. I hope everyone has been well. My tights have taken a bit of a back seat lately and with me wearing them less this will remain the default position.
However when the occasion arises, the tights will still be with us!
These lovely ‘uns are oroblu azeleas. A beautiful floral arrangement which will break up an outfit of pure black to bring in a bit of pizzazz!
My mind has gone doolally
With all these backdated, saved up posts my mind has gone doolally and I can’t remember a thing about these. Luckily for me I predicted this mind lapse and noted that these were a floral fishnet from Next. Good toe protecting area but then this happened, I must add that my only explanation for this is that my feet haven’t fair well from the chemotherapy I had. These were worn a couple of months after treatment finished and I had to adapt to the numbness I still feel in them. That is my excuse for ruining a pair of decent, strong patterned tights. On this occasion the hosiery were not to blame.
Light as a feather
As light as a feather. This is Ballerina 135, a light weight hosiery, just right for me when the weather isn’t quite cold but chilly enough. I needed a bit of glamour that day too so these were perfect. A grid base with a side pattern and garter effect of a swirl flourish possibly flowery design.
My Little Bro is Getting Hitched
Today my little bro is getting hitched and to mark the occasion I am publishing an actual post. Unless my lo tech, small brain, unresponsive fingers do something to sabotage this.
I have bought/planned to wear these Oroblu tights today if it’s not hot. The climate at the moment is so unpredictable that it could be temperatures into the high 20’s or rain and sleet in the low double figures. GP soon to be GT is into pink and all that stuff so as a tribute I got these beautiful floral tights to look girly. Also I am very pleased to announce what a clever girl I’ve been because I have bought two pairs just in case I ladder a pair. Hopefully that won’t happen and it’ll turn out to be a perfect dressing up session.
Wish me luck and have a brilliant day little bro!!
I wore these Christmas anklets for this most jolly of seasons. I bought these from Next outlet for a quid and they are brilliant. Cute floral design with a bit of pink bling at the top. Comfortable and they didn’t slip or twist to my surprise. Wore them with a maxi dress so unless I showed you, you would have thought I was wearing a normal pair of tights. 😀
OMG is that how long I’ve not posted
Hi! OMG is that how long I’ve not posted!
I am so sorry but I’ve just not been in the zone.
My parents came round and we all went for dinner in a little pub in the next village. For a couple of hours I wore these Adrian Artemis tights. The floral pattern was big and bold. It was still very distinct when worn. They glided on even over my legs which are as rough as tree bark at the moment.
The only way to view cherrry blossom
I have been away lately having hot intraperitoneal chemotherapy and now am home and on another slow road to recovery. To celebrate this great achievement here is a full length picture of cherry blossom tights by stop and stare
Secrets of hosiery
Today I’m goiung to reveal one of the secrets of hosiery.
This is what goes on behind the doors of a hosiery wearer. Yes extra socks to prevent lace tights from rubbing my feet. I usually forget to do this and end up with sore feet for the next day. I tend to find the brightest coloured socks in an un contrastiung pattern to not match my tights. Hey, I’m not going to pretend they’re not there.
These tights are my second pair of Golden Lady floral lace. This time given to me by my pal LT, the first sadly died when I applied too much pressure and pushed my hand through them. They are an ace clear pattern and because of the material, feels crochet-ee keep you warm in autumn weather.
Big reveal!!! What I chose from StopandStare
Big reveal!!! What I chose from StopandStare with my runner up prize.
The cherry blossom design. I really like their designs, and I like the soft feel of their tights. I chose the cherry blossom because I love the way it’s a two leg asymmetric pattern that creates a singular picture on each leg but becomes a whole bigger scene when put together. Beautiful!
More trailing flowers
More trailing flowers today. Rummaging around my hosiery collection I picked these up. Not worn since the beginnings of the blog. So far in the past they were that I nearly couldn’t find a post. Indeed they appeared before the twitter and instagram days. Ahhh a distant twinkle in my eye. When The blog only satisfied my own obsession with non black plain tights.
As you can see, a side pattern of trailing flowers. The original post called them trailing daisies and I still think they’re from Topshop. Just look at the bad photo of the original. Two phones later, my pictures hopefully are better.
