Fishnet tights & socks are in fashion for Spring 2017

April 1, 2017 under Runway

Lately I had many inquiries about fishnet socks, especially short ankle ones. There seems to be a trend on the runway to wear anything fishnet, like tops and tights.

Here is one of my photos from Instagram, taken recently, of my legs in fancy fishnet tights. It’s not a new pair, but all the sudden I feel more fashionable about wearing it.

Chiara Ferragni models cool pantyhose!

December 17, 2016 under Famous

I just came across these photos of Chiara Ferragni on an Italian site. Looks like she is one of the new faces for Calzedonia brand. She is showing off her legs in pantyhose. I can’t wait for spring to start wearing outfits like this again.

These are Olbia tights by Fiore. They are sheer, with a red band around the thigh. These pictures are of my teen cousin playing dress up in my clothes and my shoes. She had so much fun and she loves pantyhose!

These tights were previously modeled by Julia earlier. She is a good friend of mine and she loves pantyhose. How come all these women just love the red detailing?

In case you like the tights, you can get them here – Olbia by Fiore.

My cousin wears Maloria by Fiore tights

August 17, 2016 under Fiore

This is one of those moments when you don’t recognize what’s on the legs because it looks so different on the package. When my cousin put it on, I wondered where she got it from because it looked like nothing that I remembered giving her.

Don’t you think it looks quite different from the photo on the cover?

These are Maloria 40 den by Fiore. You can find them in the shop section.

Five pin bowling is so much fun!

August 15, 2016 under Travel

I shall say that this is the first time in almost a decade that I am going bowling. I’ve been asking many times to go, but then something would come up. Coincidentally I got my hands on a coupon book that offered a deal on bowling and I took off there with my teen cousin who is visiting from abroad.

She spent at least an hour getting ready, so I figured to put on a funky shirt and some cool fishnets (a gift from a fan, thanks Marty!) to share her enthusiasm. She is wearing Maloria tights by Fiore in case you are wondering with tight gym shorts over them.

We were both surprised that this bowling alley only had 5 pin version and smaller balls. Turns out that this is a true Canadian way to bowl. It is a little bit tougher to play than regular 10 pin bowling. We had a lot of fun and it was a new challenge for both of us.

My cousin came for a visit and started to play dress up with my shoes and pantyhose. She’ll be taking a bunch of hose home with her. In these photos I am wearing orange shoes and she is wearing beige shoes.

These pantyhose styles are Vaila tights (20 den) and Mirona tights (40 den).

Svetlana Volnova, Ukrainian fashion star, falls victim to a scam

January 17, 2016 under Famous, What to Avoid

Svetlana Volnova in black pantyhose geting out of a carDespite her bimbo looks, Svetlana Volnova actually has a programming degree. Somehow this didn’t help her to exercise some logic when she fell victim to a scammer while she was herself trying to avoid paying customs fees for importing her car.

She bought a car in United States to save some money. But when she brought it to Ukraine, turned out that the duties on that car were as much as what she paid for it.

The car was 30,000 USD when she bought it US and the same car would cost 84,000 USD.

So to avoid those customs fees, she got someone who promised her to arrange so she won’t pay. Of course, that was a scammer who simply just took her money – $9,000 USD.

Customs followed up by taking away her car and presenting her with a fine of $8,000. Eventually she managed to get it all settled, but it was a lesson for her.

I saw this girl at the Taboo Show and she even agreed to pose for me a little. She was one of the workers there, greeting the public. Cat tights always make me smile!

Ankle socks – nerdy or trendy?

March 27, 2015 under What to Avoid

short socks and heels, nylonOn my trip to Las Vegas I decided one day to wear cropped pants and matching nylon socks. In general, short socks like that seemed to be popular at least a year ago, especially among Asians. I also saw TopShop mannequins dressed like that, showing off their nylon socks.

However, I’ve seen also people on Facebook look down at women who wear their pants above the socks and let the sock show like this. I assume that traditionally to see the top of the sock would only be appropriate for children.

So let’s say that these socks served their purpose and saved my feet from blisters, but do you think they looked good? I would be curious to hear your opinion.

In case you are wondering about the brand, these were by Fiore from a few years back and they are no longer produced.
