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.

what not to wear – pantyhose and uggs or rubber boots

November 11, 2011 under Style

Here is an example of a horrible combination of pantyhose and rubber boots.  Oh, is she planning to clean the barn and look sexy for the cows while doing it?  I only wear rubber boots if I am going to the forest or to the stables.

To my surprise I took this photo at a fashion show, not at the cowshed. Pantyhose and rubber boots combo.

I love pantyhose, but I believe that it should be worn in harmony with other garments.  Therefore, in some cases it’s better not to wear it rather than to look stupid.

Another one of my most disliked combinations is pantyhose and ugg boots.  One of the local bloggers in Vancouver even created an article about how much she dislikes the ugg fashion.  She has quite a number of people that agree!

I remembered another horror combination, but I couldn’t take a picture because I was actually at work at the time.  There was a woman wearing 40 den pantyhose  and men’s flat sports sandals.

Vanessa Hudgens is wearing Uggs even in the summer, without hosiery or socks.

But let’s also not forget that in July sometimes there are women going around in Uggs or winter boots with bare legs.  Let’s say, like on the photo here Vanessa Hughes, actress and singer, comes off her tour bus in Uggs and a summer outfit.

Isn’t it time for some common sense?  Here is another example of bright pink pantyhose and uggs spotted in Vancouver by a local blogger, Side Walk Runway.

It is not unusual that Vancouver got ranked as one of world’s top worst dressed cities because of its love for yoga pants.

But I’d personally add more items to that list that make Vancouver locals so sloppy when it comes to keeping up their look.
