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.

White Pantyhose in a Club – Weird?

December 22, 2011 under Weird

woman in white pantyhose in a club - weird and rare sightWell, well, I didn’t expect to see that.  I went to a club to watch international DJ competition and I spotted this woman dressed in a vintage apple-print dress and white pantyhose.

She was also wearing glasses and her dancing very well matched her appearance.  I was surprised with what she was wearing, so I figured I’ll take a photo for you.

On one hand I am amused, but on the other hand I can say that I have respect for this woman.  Her style is very different from the crowd, but she seemed to be quite confident about it. Of course, I was wearing pantyhose too, but mine were dark grey and they blended well with my outfit.

Besides that young woman I don’t remember spotting any other person in pantyhose that tight.
