Trying on Wolford Satin Touch 20 – Wearing Pantyhose With Panty in the Desert

September 8, 2012 under Wolford

I had a pair of Wolford Satin Touch 20 that was sent to me by my fan David from Canada.  I didn’t want to just go ahead and wear it to one of my daily errands, I wanted to make a real statement by putting it on.

On my road trip in United States, after seeing thousands of women with bare legs and flip flops, I thought it would be a real statement to put on pantyhose in the middle of a desert.

There was a small problem – this is a very conservative State!  For example, in Walmart book section they had absolutely nothing on business, but there was a whole shelf on religion.  Obviously, I didn’t want anybody to see me walking around in just panties and pantyhose.

I also didn’t want to damage this pantyhose, but the desert ground is quite rough.  For this purpose I wore my flats and just alternating standing on one leg while putting pantyhose in the air on another.

This pantyhose is quite shiny, almost like a sheer version of Neon 40.  They soft, resistant, and stretchy – just the way a good quality pair of pantyhose should be. 

On another note, I’ve been told at Toronto Wolford boutique that even the princess Kate Middleton wears this exact style from Wolford.  Thank you, David, for sending that, it makes me feel like a princess too!

Indifferent service at San Francisco Wolford Boutique

September 7, 2012 under Wolford

Apathy – I feel that this is the best word to describe the attitudes of staff at Wolford in San Francisco.

I didn’t have much time in that city, but it was very important for me to see this Wolford boutique, partially because I am a blogger, but partially because this is my most exciting destination for shopping.

I walked in with my guy and at first I thought that they had another customer there already.  But when I saw that person moving mannequins, I realized that she is actually one of the staff.

Well, my confusion came from her outfit – she was wearing jeans and some kind of casual flat white shoes.  After she finished, she hopped behind the counter, thus hiding her bottom half and looking more like an employee.

The young lady who greeted me was wearing black textured fishnet pantyhose and a knee length skirt.  She was polite, but somehow I didn’t feel any enthusiasm.  Even though she answered my questions well, I could sense her lack of passion about the product.  The product knowledge was there, yet somehow this experience didn’t feel personal at all.  It felt as if this interaction was robotic and I couldn’t figure out how come it begun to bother me so much.

What could it be?  I didn’t know if my expectations are too high after being welcomed so nicely in their Toronto location by a manager who sincerely loved the product even before she got hired.  Could it be that these women are just there to work their shift, without actually having any interest in this kind of stuff outside of their work hours?

I don’t want to paint too bad of a picture here, the service wasn’t bad at all, just indifferent.  I dream about visiting all the Wolford boutiques around the world, but somehow I am not excited about returning to this one.

Beyonce wears Wolford pantyhose

I learned from the manager of Wolford in Toronto that Beyonce wears Neon 40 pantyhose in Gobi shade.  “It’s her colour!” – the lady said.  Looking at these images, you can see that it works great with her outfit.

My visit to Toronto Wolford Boutique

August 30, 2012 under Wolford

When I was inToronto, I went to see the local Wolford boutique at Yorkville.  They already had their fall collection out and I asked for permission to take some photos for my blog.

 

At some point later I had a pleasant discussion with the manager, Olga, and she told me that she loved Wolford even before she started to work for the brand.  It means a lot to me when people love what they sell even in their off time.

 

I showed Olga my blog and she saw that I had a section for boys.  I told her that some men tell me that they like to wear pantyhose, but they are afraid to actually show up to a store and buy it.  It turns out that they have a lot of men coming to buy pantyhose and Wolford staff have no problem with men who have such preferences.

However, another young staff wasn’t wearing pantyhose.  I kind of wondered why and the manager told me that this girl just got hired and doesn’t know yet what’s required for the job.  I’d add it into my work policy book!

It was a good experience to go there and see what they have.  Their boutique is much larger than in Vancouver.
