A few days ago my friend shared with me this link and her excitement about this new kind of melting tights. Well, I was excited too and even was thinking of how to get a pair of them for myself. But luckily I had a long journey and enough time to think about it.

CAN I WEAR IT ON THE STREET?

OK, let us suppose I will buy such tights. But what after that? Where shall I wear them? Maybe I will be able to wear them for some extraordinary party or event, which usually takes place once in a blue moon.

If I wear them outside instead of normal tights I will attract everyone’s attention.  Maybe I’ll get comments from people.  But the biggest fun it would be if I put them on in autumn, when it rains all time, and let people wonder what’s going on.

SAME EFFECT WITH TANNING CREAM – ALMOST!

This reminds me of a story which my friend told me. She was trying to get some tan and used special cream for that. That was supposed to be of a good quality and she really believed in it till once she got caught in rain. This cream reacted with rain water and formed a thick layer of foam flowing down her legs! Could you imagine how embarrassed she was walking outside?

HOLES AND RUNS DEBATE

Some of these designs combine the paint with the holes and runs.  In my opinion those holes just make tights look awful. Maybe I am old-fashioned, but then why do majority of women throw away tights when they are torn?  Some people may continue wearing it with the same pride as if it were designer clothes and even think of it as sexy. Anyway it is up to one’s taste, but I can’t stand any kind of holes or runs in my tights.  Holes in tights are not a new invention, so let us turn back to paint flows on these melting tights.

SOME WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THE SAKE OF ATTENTION

Well, one evident advantage is that people will turn their attention to tights rather than to legs, that is why this attire is the best choice for those whose legs are far from perfect. It is summer now and many girls and women try to beautify themselves by wearing the most incredible things. Short skirts and dresses when legs are far from perfect, massive rings when fingers are swollen from heat, thick make-up flowing from heat and sweat, so those tights can complete the image. Flowing make-up and flowing paint will be a perfect combination.

CAN MEN WEAR IT?

With women taking on professions that were traditionally performed by males, it’s not a surprise that men wouldn’t borrow anything from women.  So logically – why not men then wearing tights?  Then they also shall not forget about dresses and skirts. URB brand came out with melting tights for both genders.

MAYBE A TREND FOR TEENAGERS?

These tights can be really good for teenagers who like to be different and stand out from crowd. Shorts or short skirt, bright running shoes or comfortable shoes, bright top – and the teenager-girl will look wonderful. All suits them if chosen with taste.

But I don’t think it’s OK for those who aren’t in their teenage years anymore. Of course adult women will attract much attention when they try to put on such tights, but this will be not the kind of attention they are looking for. If you are not a teenager anymore, not a model or a TV-star, then better avoid such thing.

IN MY FASHIONABLE CONCLUSION

Such tights is quite good and innovative idea, everything has a right to exist. And we choose carefully where it’s appropriate and where it isn’t.

I come to a conclusion that even though it can be fun, but when it comes to daily wear this style is not for me. So I will wait until I become a celebrity TV host or a famous sci-fi movie actress and then I can go ahead and make a hell of a fashion statement!

Pantyhose Marketing Move – Package with Crime Scenes

August 3, 2013 under Weird

A  hosiery brand called Walk Socks decided to try a new catchy packaging theme as a pantyhose marketing tool – crime scenes!  How do you like that for an attention grabber?

Men find it so amusing that they can’t resist to buy it for their girlfriend.  It’s just too extraordinary to pass.  I applaud Walk Socks for such a smart pantyhose marketing move!

On the other note though I wonder why the brand is no longer around.  At least I was not able to find anything about it online.  Could it be that such a shock factor somehow was just too much for the public?

On another note, in Russia in 1969 there was a serial killer, Yuri Tsuman, who would only target women in black pantyhose.  He would take off all the clothes from the victim, except pantyhose.  Actually he would demand to take off everything and then only put on pantyhose and that’s it.  Women were afraid to wear dark pantyhose on the street at night.  He killed 5 women and then got caught, being granted a lifetime in prison.

Victoria Bonya Pulls it Off Smoothly, or Not?

December 27, 2012 under Famous

By Inna, our Ukrainian Connection

There is a whole lot of ways to draw public attention to your irresistible self, but the next case can simply render you speechlessly perplexed, especially if you at least a bit care for your appearance, particularly, the look of your legs.

It was one of those entertainment TV shows, Shopaholics, aired on Russian MTV channel, with very simple set of rules. Several contestants are given 5000 RUB each (approximate equivalent for 160 USD) and a restricted span of time (an hour, seemingly) to stir up their creative inner-stylist while rushing around the designated mall and hunting up the garments. Afterwords, finds are put on, exhibited in front of jury’s panel, judged and mocked on by the respective board and the decision upon winner is brought out.

tights, hosiery, fashion, stylistShort clip of the Shopaholics, that we offer for your amusement alongside this post, shows popular Russian TV/radio host and fashion model Victoria Bonya, as she is impertinently getting rid of pantyhose right away on the faux catwalk stage. The broadcast is in Russian, so let’s highlight vital points in conversation.

When the clip commences, Victoria is praised on her choice of dress and hair-do by the first stylist and suddenly he came to halt with flattering to make a remark about her tights. To put it the way he said it might have sounded like ‘they knocked me out’.

While the main stylist, Vitaliy Kozak, haven’t even taken his opportunity to end the phrase, the resourceful participant of Shopaholics interrupted him, expeditiously catching at the chance to remedy the situation, ‘I can take them off! Would you like?..’ Then two of judging stylists seemed to goad her in a jest to doing thus, but Bonya pulled up the hem of her dress and started to wriggle out of reportedly misused pantyhose.

It’s not that complicated… You know why (I opted to wearing tights under the dress)?.. Because of the shoes! Don’t know why, those spangles led me astray!’

Pantyhose were thrown away, new Victoria’s look sans tights was approved without exception. Moreover, male stylist dilated on the subject of pantyhose having suggested to wear them only in the winter and strictly under the trousers (everyone is entitled to their opinion, so we will skip this statement without response).

In her behind-the-scene commentaries, the girl also elaborates on her prompt decision, ‘I realized if I would not have taken the tights, that would be my blunder. So I eagerly doffed them without any concern of cameras and the like. I terribly apologise if somebody was embarrassed by this move, but I didn’t take off the underwear, it was just tights!’

As the bottom line, it’s obvious, that daring blonde appeared much better looking after having replaced matte pantyhose with her tanned bare skin. However, the question yet abides: what were you thinking of meanwhile picking up all that attire, given that you were surely aware the duds should come in line with each other. Maybe, to strut all your stuff at once?

Black dress with a gaudy pompous frills athwart, perked up with nude sparkly pumps, and finally diluted by lustreless, apparently thickish for the-purpose-in-hand legwear. Why don’t simply position one thing into focus and gather the rest pieces in accordance to the staple garment? In the end, you don’t ascribe your faulty look to shoes or hosiery or whatever, if it was you who chose them!
