Dear friends, I am going to be on vacation in Israel for 2 weeks.
This means that all orders will shipped no earlier than June 4th.
Do you want to see more photos from my trip? I am going to send out a newsletter soon!
Below is a photo of me wearing skin tone tights with a slight dot pattern all over. I am noticing a completely different selection of hosiery on the market here, lots of brands I’ve never heard of like Cacharel for example.
Is there such thing as too bright or too much when it comes to hosiery? Below are some designs by Zohara tights, Israeli brand (even though most likely not made there).
I personally find this a bit of an overkill. The fact that the model looks pissed off also puts me off. What do you think?
*Friends, please keep in mind that it is mainly your contributions that keep this blog running.*
One of my favourite music events to watch is the Eurovision. It is something that brings out the best from countries from all over the world. Not surprisingly, one of my treasured family posessions is a memorial coin from Eurovision in 1999 that was hosted in Israel because their contestant, Dana International, won in the previous year.
It is so hard to believe that this Israeli Eurovision winner, Dana International, used to be a boy. Her popularity skyrocketed after her victory in 1998. I remember those times when all of my Israeli friends were listening to her song “Diva”. She returned to represent Israel at Eurovision many times after that, including 2011 with her song “Ding Dong”.
Can you imagine, she was banned on TV and radio when she just started out because “transsexual sent the wrong message to the nation’s youth”? Still, even in countries like in Canada, I run into people who manage to make a mean comment about a transgendered woman. Dana was met with a lot of opposition from religious groups when she performed at the Eurovision. This is what she said as a reponse to that:
“My victory proves God is on my side. I want to send my critics a message of forgiveness and say to them: try to accept me and the kind of life I lead. I am what I am and this does not mean I don’t believe in God, and I am part of the Jewish Nation.”
Now she is over 40 and looks better than most women! She even dresses more feminine – in most of her videos she is wearing either pantyhose, fishnets, leggings, or some kind of tight sexy leg wear. Could that be why she is one of my favourite performers?
