Cold Weather in Calgary

December 10, 2016 under Seasonal

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:

Wool tights under jeans

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.

Pantyhose as a Gift – Appropriate or Not?

November 4, 2016 under Seasonal

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.

Crazy hail today in Calgary and an opportunity for a rare foot massage!

June 30, 2016 under Seasonal, Weird

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.

Wearing Delmina Tights

December 11, 2014 under Fiore, Seasonal

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.

Bright Tights for Plus Size – Fashion Statement?

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!

She wears nude pantyhose, but is it outdated?

nude shiny pantyhose

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.

Styling Shorts and Pantyhose

April 19, 2014 under Seasonal

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?

Pantyhose is A Perfect Gift

mock suspender tights

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.
