Ooh Gipsy tartan! Yes in my sick state, and I have mentioned this before, my sense of outfit coordination goes a bit wild. Sitting at home being poorly just makes me think of the possible choices of hosiery I could be wearing and when the time comes to actually wear a new pair of tights I go a bit off piste.
This pair of Gipsy “tartan bright lights” in plum looked enormous when I pulled them out of the packaging. Wow were they going to reach my neck?! To disappoint some people, they didn’t.
Au Revoir Gerbe
Au revoir Gerbe!
These lovely tights have made their way onto the stairway of no return. I love the colour, I love the pattern, I love the slippery slidey feeling I get when I walk over a polished floor. I have worn these a few times in the past few weeks. Their first appearance was just before Christmas but now they must be sent to the away due to a hole in the thigh.
Au revoir Gerbe
This season I’ve tried a few more brands and these are Gorgeous Gerbe. I’m always wanting to wear fabulous colours and as you all know I love patterned legs and this pair of tights fits the bill. In subtle blue (or is it purple) it’s not garish and after wearing them I want to go out and buy more coloured hosiery.
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!
Using my supernatural powers, with my supernatural hosiery, I am willing the cold away! With images and thoughts of hot, summery things, the winter will go and I can bask in the warmth. That was my idea with these cactus seamed purple tights from hosetights. Did it work? Not really, you see I don’t possess supernatural powers. The tights were good though! Warm, cosy, thick. The colour was deep and inspiring. I do have seam problems and at some points during the day they became side seams on one leg and off back seams on the other. I just have a funny way of walking.
My first pair of ombre tights today. Bought from a Chinese supplier in a very catchy fuchsia to purple to navy blue. Comfortable, warm and soft to the touch. I’m wondering if the ombre effect was sufficient or if the colours need to graduate into each other more smoothly. They didn’t squash my toes but they did fall a little and wrinkle. Anticipated a droopy gusset so went to work with a spare pair of knickers on over the tights for that superman look. This did keep the tights up for longer than usual as well as keeping me extra cosy warm.
Brighten things up with purple
Brighten up the day with this pair of purple tights. Quite hard to match with my usual professional garb but in order to highlight the day I wore them anyway. From my collection of “old” worn tights and I thought it was from good, sensible Marks and Sparks but the fit isn’t quite like them so no idea where they are from. I do know I got them from family one birthday quite a few years ago.
Purple and yellow hearts on a black background. A bit of love today. An Italian brand but in a junior size so they don’t quite fit me leading to minor wardrobe malfunctions.
Back to work today after two weeks off. Still a bit warm for tights for me especially if it’s sunny so a library picture in tribute for the ribennaberries themselves. Bought from Morrison’s, a lovely block purple pair.
