I love how this model put together her outfit – hot shoes, not overly provocative pantyhose, and a bright pink jacket. She is wearing Mandisa style by Fiore, sheer to waist with hearts at the bottom of the leg.
To all my friends who celebrate Easter, you may find it entertaining that in 2008 Gucci decided to run a series of pysanka-inspired designs. Pysanka is the art of Ukrainian Easter egg decoration. It’s quite a procedure!
With some precision wax application and alternating colouring solutions one can achieve incredibly detailed designs. One time, a very long time ago, when I was a teen, I had the experience of making such a decorative egg at an ethnic event.
By the way, for those of you who are interested in recycling pantyhose, it is used to dye Easter eggs. Pantyhose fabric plays the role of a casing that presses leaves or designs against the egg and thus leaving that shape uncoloured.
I am asking Julia from Ukraine to do a hosiery-inspired pysanka design for this blog. Will she do it? Your encouragement is greatly appreciated in both verbal and financial form.
In a Nylon Journal magazine there was a fun model of tights published with a subway line form Manhattan printed on it. It somehow reminds me of a song by Shane Yellowbird about his pick up truck where he says “I need a map ’cause I’m lost in your eyes” as his pick up line.
Could it be inspired by someone who got lost in the abyss of New York Metro? I can totally agree if that’s the case, Manhattan metro system could probably easily rank as one of the most sophisticated in the world.
Enjoy! This is me and my relative posing in sparkly pantyhose for the holiday season. She came over for a visit a few months ago and I asked her to take some photos with me with the upcoming holidays in mind.
Happy New Year!
My pantyhose has metallic fibre pattern on it and her pantyhose has diamond look crystals attached to it. Both are 40 den, seasonal collection by Fiore. To make us matching, we both wore black suede shoes. Felt good to celebrate in Lurex!
I just can’t do it on New Year’s without a beautiful pair of pantyhose.

I saw these curious designs on pantyhose and I just had to share it with you! I found it on a forum, so I am really not sure where they are from. But isn’t this a great way to celebrate both weather and hosiery?
It is the first time that I actually had something designed for me. My Youtube friend Fernando helped me with these graphics. The high res version will be incorporated into my videos as a welcome page. I asked him to make it look feminine and to have lace as a source of inspiration.
Do you have any comments?
