Bernika by Fiore on my legs in grey!

This photo is from a while back in Vancouver. I thought you would enjoy to see another pair of grey tights, a subtle and gentle shade, perfect for the summer. When combined with red or hot pink, it looks even nicer!

Only S and M size are left in stock. Bernika by Fiore. On sale now for $4.99.

Review of Total Slim 20 Pantyhose

May 14, 2017 under Fiore

Total Slim 20 pantyhose with shaping effectOne of my male customers bought a shaping pair by Fiore called Total Slim 20 and he left a review. He did mention though at some point that it could be because his male body is not shaped the same as the female body that the top doesn’t stay up high enough.

by Paul, 4 out of 5 star rating, he tried a pair in XL size:

“I love the firmness and feel of these pantyhose! I would have rated them a 5, but the panty isn’t long enough in the torso to keep them from slipping down. (BTW, Jessica is wonderful to work with!)”

 

Trying fun poses in Lorraine by Fiore tights

May 11, 2017 under Fiore

I went to the back yard today to take some photos in these Lorraine tights with sheer cut out pattern at the back. I wish I’d have some fun shade running shoes and I could do a very stylish street look in these. Opinions welcome!

Masha models Holly tights by Fiore in graphite shade. I love that geometric fishbone pattern! i personally have a pair for myself in brown (which is already sold out) and I love to pair it up with long over knee socks. Perhaps you’ve seen photos of that on twitter.

Wearing Raylene tights by Fiore

May 1, 2017 under Fiore

Raylene pantyhose by Fiore with dotted backseam and reinforced sole and toe 2

Today I put on a pair of Raylene tights by Fiore. They have a cool dotted backseam pattern. You can’t really see it here, but there is a thicker panty portion and at the back it continues into that triangle that you see peeking out of my shorts. The foot is also fully reinforced. I think it’s really sexy, but also it adds some more durability to the product.

These tights look so nice if you can wear it with something short enough to show the little triangle at the top and the triangle at the ankle emerging from your shoe.

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. 

Here are photos of the packages. Giulia brand and Duve brand.

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”.

Woodsonia tights, sold right away

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 game by Toronto Maple Leafs team.

What would you write?
