I went to the back yard today to take some photos in these Lorraine tights with sheer cut out pattern at the back. I wish I’d have some fun shade running shoes and I could do a very stylish street look in these. Opinions welcome!
I was reading a little bit of psychology articles on what your possessions say about you. Here are some fun stuff about patterns. Which one would you pick?
Tights with Bold Stripes
Big, bold stripes could mean you’re confident and not afraid of what people think. Could that be you?
Tights with Polka Dots
Polka dots communicate your fun side. This is perfect to show off your playfulness!
Animal Print Tights
Animal prints say you’re creative. I wonder if the reverse of this works, if wearing animal print would actually spur your creativity. Do you want to find out?
Geometric Print Tights
Geometric prints usually mean you have a need for order and might be type A. I can probably relate to this personality type the most myself.
In general, I think that depending on your mood, any one of these styles could work, more or less. Every day has its new flavour and energy.
One morning I woke up, but my teen cousin was still sleeping. I asked her to be up by 10 a.m. every morning, so I asked her why she didn’t wake up on time.
Turns out that she was fooling around at night with the camera, taking photos of her legs on the washroom floor. She wanted to surprise me!
Out of all the things she photographed that night, Vadima by Fiore were her favourite. She said that she wants to wear them in winter. Here are some photos of those.
If you like these, here they are in my shop – Vadima tights, 60 den, in ecri shade.
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.
Lately people compliment me a lot about wearing hosiery and say that seeing real life pictures really helps them to make a purchasing decision. It is common that hosiery may look somewhat different on the legs in daylight compare to images on the packages.
Here are some pictures for you of me wearing Zilda tights. I love anything sheer to waist because it emphasizes the length of my legs. I really like how these photos came out. Subtle floral pattern along the leg is not too over the top, suitable for visiting family functions, for example.
As many of you may know, I love to try different brands including vintage ones. A friend of mine has a huge stash that I am trying to sell for her and part of it I keep for myself.
Here’s an example of something I’ve never seen before on the market. There is a value pack, 2 in 1, containing pantyhose and matching nylon panties. Who on earth would wear nylon panties without any cotton? I guess I see why this idea didn’t catch on.
Based on the illustration panties and pantyhose are to be worn separately. I can’t really imagine why someone would combine the two given that both are made out of the same material. On top of this all, both items claim to be one size fit all.
For me this is just really bizarre, so I can’t resist but blog about it. I uploaded both pairs on eBay that I had and they both sold right away.
On 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.
Just like last year, I got to attend the Vancouver Taboo Show, a yearly event for adults only. That convention centre used to be walking distance from where I lived, but now it’s a long way away since I moved to Calgary. I decided to go for a more economical option and take the coach bus instead of flying, but later questioned that decision after spending 17 hours one way on that bus.
It was really nice to see a lot of my friends again and in general to experience the vibe of open-minded and positive people. I would ask people to take a photo and they would never say no, some would even pull up the skirt to show me better what kind of stockings they were wearing. Myself I wore a black dress with a frilly bottom with crinoline skirts underneath and fishnet stay up stockings. Maybe next year I’lll go for a wilder outfit.
Taboo show happens almost in every Canadian major city and every time there are plenty interesting things to see. This year there was a pole dancing studio, a fire fighters club, body paint workshop, BDSM workshop from fetish Noir club, tattoos, lingerie, accessories, and gifts.
I snapped a few stocking and pantyhose pictures for you to enjoy. Even though the show was not about just stockings, at least my eyes seem to be drawn to mostly that.
Legwear Photos from Taboo Show
A little black dress and sheer pantyhose is something that has never failed to get attention! I saw this photo from Fiore and thought to share it with you. The woman looks so classy.
I love this lurex backseam style by Fiore! These are sheer to waist with an invisibly reinforced toe. Polish women look so good in pantyhose!
