My Holiday Shopping Frenzie Has Begun

Just a few hours ago I returned from United States.  Maybe it sounds far, but it’s only about 45 minutes away from Vancouver.  Partially the purpose of my trip was to send some packages that were ordered over the weekend sale though this blog, and partially to have a look at some nice outfits that I could wear for New Year’s and Christmas holidays.

There are thousands of brands and models to choose from and so many different stores full of noisy shoppers.  I was so confused that I just left empty-handed, declaring only $60 worth of chocolates at the border crossing, thus totally surprising the guard who somehow expected a woman like me to buy much more than that.

Sometimes I even think that instead of going from one store to another, I could buy a dress online in the comfort of my home to save time and money travelling back and forth. These days online fashion stores offer a huge selection of summer dresses, black evening dresses, prom dresses, casual dresses, sparkling dresses, and there is really no end to it.

I think that most people who are afraid of shopping online do so because they are not sure about their dress size.  One of my good friends even once bought me a beautiful sequin dress that you see here on the photo from an online store.  They had a detailed size chart with body measurements that made it easy for me to choose.

I think that the key to choosing the right dress is knowing your body type and what looks good with it.  In addition to that I choose my hosiery as carefully as I choose my dress.  Perfect nylon shade and proper shoes can add class and elegance to a simple style.

Here are some tips from stylists on choosing a nice dress that I found:

  • If you’re attending a formal event, stick with a more conventional cut.
  • For a night out or a birthday party, choose a cocktail dress.
  • Highlight your small waist with a thin belt.
  • Women with curves should avoid pleats and gathers. A knee-length dress will outline their figure and make them look slimmer.
  • Petite ladies can highlight their small frame with slim fitting dress.
  • Athletic women will look amazing in tight dresses with fun prints.
  • If you have dark skin, look for party dresses in light colors such as yellow, green, white, and pink.
  • Those with medium skin may wear gray, brown, or black.
  • Red and green will look wonderful on dark-haired ladies with pale skin.
  • The right accessories can set apart even the simplest dress.  

OK, so with my head spinning from all different styles, and especially after I looked at the photo of me in that sequin pink dress, I am determined that if I fail to find a new outfit,  at least have a perfect option already present in my closet.

Pantyhose Party

My legs in Izyda pantyhose today!

As the holiday season is approaching, I had more and more of my female friends ask me for fancy pantyhose.  So some girlfriends of mine asked me to put together a pantyhose party event since I’ve got some stock on hand.

Some of them were so eager to try on what they purchased that they put it on in front of their friends.  No men were around, so we had a blast running around in pantyhose and comparing patterns.  Isn’t it amazing to see people so excited about tights?

I decided we’ll do a fun get together like that on monthly basis with all the ladies I know.

Happy Passover – Pantyhose with Cats and Star of David

I found these cute pantyhose on a Polish website.  Isn’t it funny to see cat & star of David combo?  I really don’t know what the two have to do together, but I figure it will make my Jewish friends smile.  Aren’t these pantyhose with cats adorable?

Happy Passover!

Funny Pantyhose with Cats

In general pantyhose with cats never fail to bring a smile to my face!  I’d do something with paw prints if it would be up to me, let’s say paw prints at the back instead of the backseam.

Pantyhose Models from WamInStyle and Holiday Greetings

Written by Jessica

My friends, if you like to see some photos of pantyhose models, I recommend to visit WamInStyle website.  I even had a pleasure of meeting them this summer when I was visiting Russian and we even collaborated on a photoshoot.

Their main theme is wetlook – it’s a fun of doing something that your mother told you to never do, i.e. get your fancy clothes wet.  Their models can walk into a fountain or jump into a river during their photoshoots.  Having said that, they absolutely love pantyhose and stockings, so majority of their shoots don’t go without some kind of hosiery involved.

There is currently a special on subscription to WamInStyle.  Their pantyhose models are just divine, up for any kind of play!

Also, to my knowledge, they accept requests from their members and even non-members who are interested in a specific photoshoot.

*Dear friends, please remember what makes this blog possible – your purchases at the shop section.  Would there be a sleek pair of stockings or pantyhose there that you’d like for yourself?  Please visit our online hosiery shop.*

What is the most non-traditional gift that you have ever received?

My parents keep on asking me what I want to get as a present.  It’s a tough one.  Most of the time they are completely out of ideas.  It gets to a point that I either need to tell them what I need and be very specific, otherwise they will get something completely useless to me.

This year things worked out well.  I wanted to take a computer course for a long time already, so I told my parents that they can just cover the cost of the course as a present for me.  I’m very happy and excited about this, I signed up today.

Maybe this is not the main stream type of gift, but for sure I won’t forget it and it might make a big difference in the long run.

Would you ever consider sending your friend or relative for a course as a present?

Hanukkah Pantyhose Party

I went to see my accountant on the first day of Hanukkah and to my surprise she was also wearing fancy pantyhose.  Don’t we look cute together?

Her family is Jewish, but they follow local traditions too – that explains the decorations under the tree.  The tree to them is just a cute thing, not related to any religion.

I pulled up my knee high skirt and posed with her for some photos.  She was surprised to see me so excited about what she was wearing.  Well, I guess it’s because I never see her in pantyhose!

I think that sparkly of patterned hosiery is a great way to add some spirit to a holiday outfit.
