Fiore hosiery brand sends their samples to bloggers who agree to model it and promote the brand. This is one of them. Somehow Milla by Fiore is the most popular hosiery style that I see girls modeling.

Women Oriented Taxi in Ukraine offers Pantyhose

July 30, 2013 under Practical
krasotka taxi 2 pantyhose exchange

Translation: “In Krasotka (Beauty) cab you can read a magazine and change your pantyhose”

Did you get a run in your pantyhose, but don’t have a spare pair on you?  Even worse, are you running short on time and can’t afford to go look for a public washroom to change in?

pantyhose-runIn Odessa, Ukraine, a new taxi service for women called Krasotka (means Beauty) caters to women and has basic items available for their comfort and needs.  If your pantyhose ripped accidentally, they will give you a new one.

On their website they even say that they offer a service to transport goods and give an example – if a woman is busy, but her girlfriend is in desperate need of a spare pair of pantyhose, she can ask Krasotka taxi to urgently deliver the item.   They have everything from tampons, umbrellas, to children toys.

Even though the owner of the company is a man, Krasotka’s clients and drivers are only female.  Men are rarely allowed only if they are being accompanied by a woman (as part of her baggage, I suppose).  Once they made an exception for a male gay couple who wanted a ride and gave a bold statement that they are “girls too”.

 

Sweet n Pantyhose loses her battle with cancer

August 9, 2012 under News

I am very sad to hear these news and I looked over her work with a teary eye.  Of course, I didn’t know her personally, but with this lady being so open about her joys and struggles, I think that all of us feel as if we did.

 

Sweet and her husband Outlaw were running a pantyhose blog, in some ways similar to mine.  They even organized pantyhose parties and many of their fans had a chance to meet them in person.

 

Facebook Page with this info is here: https://www.facebook.com/Stage4ColonCancer#

In 2010 Sweet was diagnosed with colon cancer that spread to the liver.  She went for chemotherapy treatment and surgery at the Viera hospital.  On July 28, 2012 Sweet passed away surrounded by her family.  Memorial Service for Sweet (Sharri Kimberley) was held on August 25, 2012 in Rockledge, Florida.  Another point that moves to tears – she asked not to spend money on flowers, but to donate it to your local Woman’s Abuse Shelter.

Outlaw, please accept my condolences, even though there is no way for me to even imagine the pain you are going through.  This pain is shared by many, as it is probably impossible to find a person who hasn’t ever lost someone to cancer.

Jenna Talackova is giving interview for Out TV at Vancouver Pride 2012

August 5, 2012 under Famous

I saw her giving an interview for Out TV, of course, I couldn’t hear what she was saying, but I tried to film her pretty face anyway.  She’s beautiful!

Jenna wasn’t born with this name.  It used to be Eugene, and “Page” in between.  It’s hard to believe that this long-legged woman was not born female!

Some sources say that she has Czech descent, some say that she is aboriginal.  But most sources point that her family is from northern British Columbia First Nation community.  It’s quite surprising to see her with blond hair like that, most native people here look very different.  Oh well, she’s unique!  But my opinion is that she is the most optimized hybrid of two descents.

 

 

 

 

 

Jenna Talackova and Wonder Girls

August 4, 2012 under Famous

One of the stars of the gay parade this year is Jenna Talackova, a local Vancouver’s transgendered beauty who fought for her right to be in the beauty contest.  She got disqualified at some point for not being born a woman.

Turns out that she is a big fan of Korean music.  On this photo she is posing with Wonder Girls and in one of her interviews she mentioned that she looked up to Harisu, Korean transgender pop star.

Why would a young woman of Czech descent look up to Koreans?  I guess since she was born in a city like Vancouver, with so many foreign influences, just about any ethnic combination is possible.  She is very unique in her ways and I admire her for that.

Magic of Pantyhose in Eastern Europe

June 7, 2012 under Style
Malboro model in pantyhose in Ukraine

Malboro promotion in Ukranian duty free shop

I had an opportunity to spend a couple of weeks of summer in multiple Eastern European countries and observe at least one third of women proudly wearing pantyhose.

In general, in that region women put more effort to look their best even if they are going to do their daily chores.  Looking good is an expectation.  Maybe not explicit, but it’s always there.

Ukraine: beautiful Barbie is wearing nude pantyhose

Borispol airport in Ukraine seemed to be the hottest place throughout my trip, temperature wise and fashion wise.

As an example, I’ve seen a beautiful brunette model
promoting Malboro cigarettes at the duty free store.  She was very friendly and gladly posed for a photo.  Her sporty outfit looked stunning with a pair of shiny pantyhose.

Again, at the same airport, I saw a beautiful Barbie Girl who was catching a flight to Sofia, Bulgaria.  She was wearing nude pantyhose with her pink outfit despite the hot weather.

Ukraine: airport female staff were wearing skirts and pantyhose.

I remember hearing results of a survey why Arab men prefer to date Eastern European women.  One thing from the responses that shocked me was “these women look after themselves even after marriage”.  I was surprised to realize that this statement implied that some women don’t.

For the record, I noticed that the Barbie girl had a ring on her finger.  Yes, such beautiful women don’t stay single for long.

Chopin airport in Warsaw was not far behind.  There were a lot of fancy women there, both staff and tourists, wearing pantyhose.  Considering that in most airports photography is not allowed, I had to be quite careful in order to get a few sneak peeks for you.

Poland: blond flight attendant is wearing chocolate colour pantyhose

In Poland I was pleased to see a beautiful blond woman checking boarding passes while wearing chocolate pantyhose.  What a rare sight!  I think it’s only possible in Eastern Europe.   Brown is a very rare colour these days and somehow it doesn’t get recommended for fair skinned people.  I remember how in our Vancouver Wolford boutique staff were just adamant about me expressing an interest in a tan shade darker then my own skin tone.

In LED airport in Russia I also saw a lot of pantyhose, but with their tough security I decided not to play with the rules.  Of course, that vast country is full of women of all ages and sizes in pantyhose.  Teens, grandmothers, young moms… they all wear it.  Fashion stores have great hosiery selection, including brands like Falke.

Some curious bullet points here about Eastern Europe:

Russia: even young moms go out in sexy outfits!

  • reinforced toes are frequently worn even with sandals
  • plain pantyhose greatly outnumber patterns
  • nude seems to be the most popular colour for plain hosiery
  • black is the most popular colour for patterns
  • pantyhose commercials on TV and banners for brands like Conte
  • layering is OK, i.e. wearing beige fishnets over sheer nude pantyhose
  • even plus size ladies wear it (I saw a mature woman in bright orange tights)

Russia: size and age are no obstacle to wear hosiery!

So friends, if you would like to make this summer full of nylon legs, book a flight to Eastern Europe for an unforgettable pantyhose experience!
