Do you like to experiment with different hosiery shades?

September 12, 2016 under Style

When I just started selling pantyhose at local women events, I had women come up to me and ask “What colours do you have?” while browsing. Surprisingly, I rarely sold shades other than black and natural. I always wondered, why ask if you would still choose black?

There was one lady who worked for the Board of Trade, she was East Indian, with a darker skin tone. This was the only person who wanted to have something darker, like Cappuccino and Taupe shade, to match her skin tone.

I have some styles in my shop that come in a variety of shades. Have a look if you’d like in case you are one of those who likes to explore different options. One of my favourite writers, Tim Ferris, said that he purposely stopped wearing black at some point and actually experienced some enjoyment as a result.

I am trying on different colour shoes in a store. Wearing Fortsisima by Gatta pantyhose in light grey shade.

 

If you are looking for some exotic shades like Cypria, Cappuccino, and so on, have a look at these tights. They have a very wide pallette of colours. XL is also available!

If you are looking for fashion colours like violet and orange, have a look at Paula 40 den tights and at Ester stay up stockings. I brought in a lot of shades!

Wearing Ofelia tights in Plum shade

August 10, 2016 under Fiore

These are tights by Fiore called “Ofelia”, completely opaque, with a geometric print. You can find them in the shop here – Ofelia by Fiore.

I decided to try them on in plum shade. Let’s just say that our Calgary summer has been unusually cold and wet, so I feel quite comfortable wearing these around the house instead of pants. I usually don’t reach for 60 den until it’s October or so.

I like the kaleidoscope pattern on these tights. Outside it does look like the colour of a plum, but inside in dim light it looks almost black. This pattern covers the legs only and not the panty portion. Reinforced toe.

I do hope though that the weather will improve. So far my trip to a lake in Saskatchewan has cancelled because of not so hot weather and floods in that area. I went to a lake in Alberta called Pigeon lake and didn’t even bother to swim, it was cold and windy. My only hope now is to swim in Lake Ontario in two weeks on my trip to Toronto.
