Ukrainian Tights – a Gift from Julia

April 28, 2017 under Brands

seamed hosiery

A few years back my friend Julia sent me a package from Ukraine. It contained many cool souvenirs and of course, knowing how much I’m into it, she sent 2 pairs of tights. 

In my opinion, both styles are quite rare. I’ve seen beige back seam tights before with a black seam and with a beige seam, but never a darker shade like this, especially with a reinforced toe.

Polka dots are common, but to find them in grey is not. To my surprise both styles turned out to be quite durable. 

If you are wondering when these photos were taken, I will surprise you – just about 2 days ago! Yes, Calgary still has snow falling from time to time. It is almost March and I still didn’t pack away my winter jackets. 

Vintage Pantyhose Haul and More

April 28, 2017 under Vintage

purple pantyhose with purple mary jane shoesToday I went to a second hand store to browse some vintage pantyhose. I left with a full bag of them and even managed to already sell 4 pairs on the same day to a person who collects a specific brand called Woodsonia.

There is one pair by Discretion brand that advertises itself as multi-colour basic tights for fashion, dance, and exercise. Yes, exercise! I wish I could show up to the gym wearing something like that.

Even though majority of vintage hosiery here was made in Canada or United States, I managed to find a pair of Ravinia

pantyhose from Ecuador. I had no idea they even make pantyhose there!

As I was browsing, I noticed a woman, most likely transgender based on her appearance, checking out shoes. She kept on mumbling something about someone not cleaning up the mess, referring to everyone as “bitches”.

I thought that maybe something happened before I got there and tried to calm her down by asking her if she liked pantyhose as I was sorting through whatever was there on display. She told me that she likes it and even came over to look at it as well. I asked her what size she wears and then she abruptly went back to the shoes, talking to herself out loud and referring to (most likely) me as a “butch dyke”.

I minded my own business from that point and didn’t interact with this person any further. Considering what I was wearing (leather jacket, mini skirt, tights, and high heels as shown on the photo here), I don’t think I looked like a “butch dyke” at all. My only reasonable explanation to this is that she could be on drugs or could be experiencing some mental health issues.

There was another situation expecting me at the cash register. The cashier, while sorting through the big pile of pantyhose I got, suddenly stopped half way and decided that she needs a break. She told another cashier to take over and left. This is the first time I see cashiers change in the middle of a transaction.

Do you see what I have to go through in order to fish out all of these rare vintage brands? I’m still working on uploading everything on eBay.

Custom Made Tights for Me!

April 27, 2017 under Art

These fun tights with rhinestones were designed for me by a man who wanted to start a business like this. However, to my knowledge, it didn’t work out. I still got to keep a pair of tights like that, made especially for me. I modeled them for his business and also did a Youtube video at some point.

I think that it is a nice artistic idea, but not everybody wants to have their name visible to public. But what to write instead? Even with my imagination I find it hard to visualize what I would want written on my legs. The only thought that comes to mind is something like “Go Leafs Go” for a nice outing to a baseball game by Toronto Maple Leafs team.

What would you write?

My trip to London is cancelled last minute

April 20, 2017 under News

I am so sad, it’s the first time I have to cancel airline tickets. My partner is down with flu and we just had to cancel and stay home. My dream to see the Big Ben will not come true for a while, that means.

This is the first time that I have to cancel already booked airline tickets and hotel reservations. Somehow I thought that buying cancellation insurance would mean that cancelling a flight would be as easy as returning a lamp to Ikea… I was wrong!

Turns out, I still have to pay the penalties and then appeal them through the insurance company. That’s just another heap of paperwork that I am so not looking forward to.

Newsletter Aftermath

April 15, 2017 under News

Legs59 sheer black pantyhose resized photoIt hasn’t been even 24 hours yet since the most recent newsletter, but I already have 25 messages in my inbox wanting to know the reasons for why I am most likely going to sell Fantasy Stockings business.

I told you, if more than 10 people ask, I’ll do a separate newsletter with some explanations. It will take me a few days to draft it up, there is no simple single answer.

I’ll try to be as sincere as possible about it. My goals and circumstances in my 20’s were not the same as they are in my 30’s, thus I need to re-evaluate some decisions I’ve made earlier.

An Anonymous Quote on Pantyhose

April 3, 2017 under Poetry

One of my followers on social media passed this on. How lovely! Thanks, Vince! Since I prefer regular pantyhose, I’ll try to enjoy flowers as gifts rather than chocolate.

“If it weren’t for chocolate, there would be no need for control-top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated.”

Fishnet tights & socks are in fashion for Spring 2017

April 1, 2017 under Runway

Lately I had many inquiries about fishnet socks, especially short ankle ones. There seems to be a trend on the runway to wear anything fishnet, like tops and tights.

Here is one of my photos from Instagram, taken recently, of my legs in fancy fishnet tights. It’s not a new pair, but all the sudden I feel more fashionable about wearing it.

Newsletter is coming out in a few days!

March 26, 2017 under News

Hello friends, I will be sending out a newsletter with some photos. Here are two photos of me from last week wearing pantyhose by Fiore called “Sin”.

Don’t miss it, please sign up if you haven’t already done so! These are really hot backseam Cuban heel pantyhose. I wore pants under this jacket, then took them off in the car, and took a few daring photos. Well, not too daring, there were people walking back and worth, it’s a public place after all.
