wearing vintage Kayser stockings and garter belt

July 22, 2014 under Vintage

In a local shop in Vancouver I managed to find a pair of vintage Kayser stockings and I tried it on with a fancy garter belt. Here’s a sneak peak from a public parking lot when nobody was looking.

This garter belt was acquired from Dolce Amore Lingerie. In case you are interested, they have the same one for sale, size S, on their site. Buy it HERE. Or ask me, I am best friends with the owner.

Vintage stockings and pantyhose present from England

September 4, 2012 under Vintage

This morning started for me with a very special moment.  I finally got my hands on a long-awaited parcel from England, sent by James.  He found them in a shop that sells retro items in London.  What a selection of vintage pantyhose and vintage stockings!  I don’t know what to try first.  It’s been on my mind to get my hands on such stuff or a while.

I think that the first one that I’ll probably go for is the off white textured hose in the middle.  But I can’t see the label, looks like it’s been taken out of the package.  I am so excited and very grateful to James for finding this pantyhose treasure and sending it to me.
