Lack of Refinement at the NYC Wolford Boutique (Columbus Circle Location)

August 3, 2017 under Wolford

Wolford boutique New York City NYC Columbus Circle reviewI got to visit New York City on my vacation and I couldn’t resist to see their local Wolford boutique near Central Park, at the Columbus Circle shopping center). Despite the crazy heat this Tuesday, I put on my Satin Touch 20 pantyhose (a gift from a special fan), a lace white skirt, and a black thong bodysuit that I just recently purchased (more about that later). Not intentionally, but I actually ended up wearing the bodysuit style that is called “New York”. I thought I was all set for my visit. My expectations were soaring high and I knew exactly what style of pantyhose I wanted to buy.

I walked into that boutique and noticed two women talking to each other at the entrance, both of them turned out to be Wolford employees. Only after they finished their conversation and I already had my back to one of them while looking at the display, I heard a greeting from Kathleen. Here comes the first strike. Greeting a customer without eye contact.

No matter how long I circled the boutique, trying to solicit any further response in my address, I still felt like I was invisible. At some point I even took the liberty to pull out the drawer of Neon 40 tights and started checking their shades and sizes, hoping that the woman watching the screen of the desk top computer would turn to me and help me pick out the right size and shade.

The day before I sent my guy “undercover” to scout the boutique. His experience was actually quite pleasant, but it was not the same sales person welcoming him though. Right away he was informed that there is a sales section with 70% OFF. At least it would be nice to also get the same information! I figured if I bring up the price, perhaps I’ll heard back which items are on sale as a way to accommodate budget-conscious customers.

I walked up to the rack with some tops and finally asked the sales person why the items are so expensive. She came up to me and highlighted some valid points about Wolford’s quality and reputation. I thought to see how she will respond to a tougher question and pointed at the snags all over the collar of a shirt that was still hanging there with a regular price tag – “Really, you say they make good quality items? Look at this damage.”

Kathleen (forgive me if I spell this wrong, I had to ask her what her name was because none of the staff wore name tags) was very polite and offered to give me a damage discount on the top. She also pointed out that even though that rack is still regular price, this is what’s left of the summer collection and it is getting shipped back to Austria tomorrow. This is just my opinion, but here is the 2nd strike – damaged merchandise should be spotted immediately by staff, not by customers, and either taken off the floor or discounted accordingly.

Third strike for me was that both of the workers on the floor were with bare legs. I brought up the question and got the answer that it is not part of the summer uniform because it is so hot outside. Of course, Kathleen pointed out that whatever she is wearing is made by the Wolford brand. Did Wolford really change their policies or is she just not aware of the dress code? Most of my Wolford boutique visits happened during the summer and I don’t recall seeing staff with bare legs. At least if the front window is occupied mainly by mannequins in fishnets, I would assume that such hosiery would be a great solution for a hot day.

I told Kathleen everything as is, pointing out that I am also wearing Wolford and that I am planning to blog about my visit. She offered me some information to take with me about the upcoming collection and I gladly agreed. But here came the fourth strike – the phone rang. Those of you who worked in customer service know that there are techniques to handle a phone call and an in person customer at the same time by picking up the phone and asking the caller to wait a little bit, then to wrap up the discussion with the person in front of you, and move on to the phone call. In this case I was still standing there, waiting for the conversation to come to an end so I could get that promised brochure.

That moment I saw my guy turn up at the door looking for me, so I was about to leave and Kathleen caught up to me and gave me that brochure to take home. I haven’t seen whether the phone call was over or whether she in fact did put the caller on hold.

My visit, regretfully, ended without a purchase. I only buy if I feel satisfied with the service. It is a little bit sad for me, I was hoping to get a pair of Neon 40 tights in Midnight shade because this is one of the shades I haven’t tried yet. If even more good deals would be pointed out to me, perhaps I’d buy a few other things too. My experience did not live up to my initial excitement based on the courtesy I’ve seen in other Wolford boutiques across the country.

 

 

Demi Lovato Wears Sexy Bodysuit and Tights in Brazil

July 5, 2017 under Famous

shiny fishnet pantyhose and over the knee bootsI was browsing through some foreign news and I spotted this photo of Demi Lovato, looking glamorous in a nice high cut bodysuit and nude fishnet shiny tights. This performance took place in Brazil on July 1st at the Villa Mix Festival.

She admits that Brazil is where most of her fans are and this is where her tours are the craziest. I can see why they like her voluptuous shape there!

Twitter is exploding with samples of her new song #SorryNotSorry and I can’t wait to see the video for that! She says that this song is dedicated to the haters. It looks like on the cover she has another amazing bodysuit.

Kylie Minogue, the singer known for her wild side, just launched a new video that starts with a shot of a Wolford shopping bag.

Mostly the bodywear is featured as the dancers exercise in white bodysuits, but in some shots you can tell that she is wearing nude fishnet pantyhose under her leotard.

This video of dancers doing all sorts of moves  on high heels was filmed in a high school gym. The song itself is written by an Australian composer, Sia.

Romanian Singer Inna in a Nylon Bodysuit

inna singer in nylon bodysuit 4I love Inna’s music and sometimes I listen to her disco tunes.  Inna is a Romanian singer who seems to please people with her voice, but now decided to please some nylon connoisseurs with her bodysuit.  Encased in this pantyhose-like sheer outfit, she even managed to flash her nipple a couple of times at Summer festival in Belgium, 2010.

inna singer in nylon bodysuitI can understand that it’s hard to keep the nylon bodysuit outfit from shifting while dancing on those stiletto heels, but what’s up with the thong that seems to have quite rough seams?  Either seamless fabric or maybe an additional layer of skin tone nylon under her outfit would do the trick to cover those parts. I would also love it if her bodysuit would cover her feet too.

But either way, she did a good job performing her songs Hot and Deja Vu despite her controversial nylon bodysuit and all the nerves prior to the show.  Perhaps with a body like that she is allowed to wear such nylon outfits!  Romania proves once again to be a very sexually open-minded place.

Gymnastics and Bodysuit Magic

July 8, 2013 under Weird

I saw photos of this woman in a circus bodysuit on someone else’s Facebook page and I just had to share it.  As many of you may know by now, I am a big fan of the circus and their costumes, bodysuits, and other outfits for the stage.

To me circus is part of country’s culture, like art galleries and music orchestras.  If it would be up to me, I’d have this kind of art funded by the government of each country.

How does this woman manage to be that flexible and smile while doing those positions? I guess it’s one thing to reach such flexibility, but a whole different matter to perform with a big smile as if there is nothing to it.

I like her sheer and sensual bodysuit and maroon leg covers.  It creates the illusion as if she is wearing basically nothing.  For Cique Du Soleil, for example, some outfits need to be changed every few weeks because of the vigorous activities these performers do.

I wonder how she can bend her spine like that!

Miranda Kerr in a Circus Outfit and Pantyhose

December 6, 2012 under Famous

I came across this outfit that the fashion model Miranda Kerr wore to a Halloween party – she is supposed to be the circus presenter.  Sexy!  I wonder what her hubby, Orlando Bloom, wore to the party.

Zentai Outfits – anyone would like to help out with content?

September 15, 2012 under Weird

It seems that there is a percentage of hosiery lovers who are into zentai.  I’d love to do a post on it, but I don’t know much about it.  Is there anyone here who would like to help me out with opinions and content?

I think that there is something psychologically moving about not being able to see the face.

One time my guy dressed up in a zentai suit for an event.  People would smile, but a large dog started barking and got very nervous because of the outfit.
