If usually I can get away with wearing shorts and thicker tights in winter, but this week is extremely cold. I put on these shorts and fun tights, but then checked Calgary weather and changed into a more appropriate version – jeans and wool tights under.
Wanted to wear:
Ended up wearing:
I can’t wait for warmer weather to finally be able to dress the way I want! Wool tights, by the way, were a gift from a fan. They are keeping me warm not the first winter already.
Some gifts from a fan. Yes, pantyhose were inside too!
Just recently a woman mentioned to me that she’s planning to give some fun pantyhose to her friends as gifts for the holidays. Is it a good idea?
Turns out that according to the European etiquette, pantyhose are not considered to be an undergarment. It is a luxury item. Thus, they are perfectly fine to give as gifts. I had that opinion all my life anyway!
When it comes to stockings / stay ups, I think it’s OK to give it to people you know pretty well. Strangers may see something sexual in it, contrary to the fact that a lot of women wear stay ups daily just to cover their legs at work.
Occasion also matters! I’ve read that queen Elizabeth II got 100 stockings as a wedding gift. That was a very luxurious gift, based on the scarcity of the garment.
I am going to a Christmas party in December and I thought to bring pantyhose for all the ladies there, but then I figured I’d rather bring knee socks and ankle socks instead. I have no way of knowing what size those women are and I’d rather not guess or ask the hostess to guess.
Here is the most colourful pair of tights on the whole site – Keisha by Fiore. It comes in yellow, orange, and turquoise. Which shade would you wear?
Keisha by Fiore – Only $4.99 now!
I saw bigger hail balls, but not so many at once. Today it just totally covered my whole porch. I looked at it and decided to jump out and do something fun. In the middle of the summer I wanted to feel what it’s like to stand and sit on ice. Here are some photos from my fun experience.
As I am adjusting to my life in Calgary (yes, it’s very tough for me), I decided to participate in a social event and go to decorate the Christmas tree in the lobby with other tenants from my building. I thought that these Delmina tights by Fiore would look best! These bows at the back make my legs look like one big present.
I saw these photos on a fashion blog that suggested this look for plus size fall fashion. Any thoughts? I don’t know if I like the outfit as much as I actually like the model. She looks so confident and happy!
I got this photo from another blogger and her post was from 2011. She was saying that she wore a mini dress with nude pantyhose. Well, I see why, she wore platform shoes with it that I doubt would feel comfortable if worn without any hosiery.
However, in terms of the look, would you say that it’s rare to see such a mini dress paired with hosiery in general? I can totally hear some fashion critics saying how this is a bad idea to wear pantyhose with a summer outfit, especially shiny.
I saw these photos from a while back (3 years ago) on another blog. The owner of the blog combined shorts, pantyhose, and a summer top.
She’s Eastern European, but I have a feeling she probably resides somewhere in Finland.
Anyway, this would be so rare to see in North America! Agree?
This pair of mock suspender tights was sent to me as a gift by a fan for Christmas. I wore it on my way to my mini-vacation in Victoria with a knee-high dress. For this photo I pulled the dress up, obviously, to show off the design.
I think probably a couple of passengers got a sneak peak at also on the ferry while I was sleeping on the seat at that mock stocking pattern. At least I caught a few looks when I got up to adjust my dress.
