Manolo Blahnik Shoes

July 24, 2017 under Famous

I was just browsing through Vogue and I found a few photos of Manolo Blahnik designs involving his shoes paired perfectly with stockings. This Spanish designer for sure knows how to put the two together. Latex, nylon, or who knows what, it adds that fantasy dimension to the image.

Manolo Blahnik shoes and hosiery

Manolo Blahnik started his career in the 70s and brought back elegance and femininity by popularizing and perfecting the stiletto heel once again. Even though platforms were extremely in fashion in those days, he just didn’t like them and up to this very day you will find any platform shoes in his collection. In his opinion, platform shoes don’t go well with female body proportions.

I bought shoes to match my pantyhose!

June 23, 2016 under Fiore

In this picture I am wearing Crush pantyhose by Fiore with a pair of new shoes I got from French Connection. I bought the shoes on an impulse really, but knowing the store’s good return policy I knew that I still have some time to make up my mind.

I asked my friends on Twitter and they all so far say to keep it! So I will. I think it looks beautiful with these tights.

Love for shoe shopping – online & offline

August 26, 2014 under Practical

Somehow every time I go on vacation, I seem to stock up on shoes. With all the great deals that I see in American malls, I just can’t resist. On my recent trip I acquired four new pairs. I got two new pairs of flats and two pairs of heels. In Canada our prices are not nearly as attractive.

Recently I’ve been considering to buy shoes online. If it’s a sexy type of shoe that I use for mostly photoshoots, then I am willing to take the risk if it’s not a perfect fit. One of my friends actually signs up to all the newsletters that send out deals on online shopping.

To my surprise I see that some sales online are actually better than what I can get in stores. Perhaps one big advantage to shop online is that items are quick to find. On my trip I stopped at Ross to look at some deals and I found the shoe I wanted, but only one shoe! Even after I asked for help to find the second one, nobody could figure out where it was. I walked out empty-handed.

Another advantage is that people who wear larger sizes like 9, 10, and 11 get amazing deals online since these sizes are usually left over. Crossdressers, for example, are often shy to buy shoes for themselves in public. Claiming that their wife has size 11 feet would probably get the sales person suspicious, even though in theory they actually don’t care since they just want to make that sale.

Just recently I also discovered a helpful way to make a decision on which shoe to buy. Since online you always have a photo available, putting it up on social media and asking people to vote / comment may reveal some points that you haven’t considered. These cork shoes, for example, were bought after I did a bit of a survey on social media and saw that lots of people voted for these.

Model in Mandisa Pantyhose by Fiore

May 19, 2014 under Fiore

I love how this model put together her outfit – hot shoes, not overly provocative pantyhose, and a bright pink jacket. She is wearing Mandisa style by Fiore, sheer to waist with hearts at the bottom of the leg.

Blogger in Apriel tights by Fiore

May 12, 2014 under Fiore

This blogger is showing off her amazing heels paired with Apriel tights by Fiore brand.

I have a pair of these Apriel tights too, but somehow on my legs it doesn’t look as sheer as on her legs. I wonder if I am wearing a size that is too big.

Such mock stockings tights are very popular in my city (Vancouver) and perhaps all over the world after a few celebrities wore it on stage and started a trend.

Dressing up for Victory Day

May 10, 2014 under News

May 9th (or May 8th, depending on who you ask) is the Victory Day, the end of World War II. This year friends invited me and my guy out to celebrate to a themed event in a restaurant. Here’s a shot below from the elevator.

It was really nice, happy and sad at the same time. May 9th is a very emotional day for me, it’s never easy to think about the sacrifices and losses of the war. Even though it wasn’t my generation, but I grew up with my grandparents telling me those stories. I phoned my grandpa to congratulate him first thing in the morning.

But since this is a hosiery blog, I just have to highlight some of the leg fashion statements from that outing. Please don’t let this mislead you that I in any way give more significance to clothing than to the this historical event. It’s just the nature of this blog.

I wore a black dress that I got as a present from one of my amazing fans and my friend also had a really nice dress on paired with black sheer pantyhose. Here’s a photo of our legs below posing on the dance floor.

I saw some really nicely dressed women dancing, about 80% of them had some kind of pantyhose on and nice heels. One blond lady had such amazing heels (and nude pantyhose too) that I couldn’t resist and went to talk to her when she sat down at her table.

I asked her politely to take a photo of her shoes and I mentioned that I wonder how she can dance on such heels. Instead of posing for a photo she asked me what size I wear and suggested that I try it on so that I know for myself how comfortable those are!

She took off her shoe and handed it to me and I took off mine. Of course I pulled up my guy with his camera and took the opportunity to get a photo of my foot in her shoe. Turns out that she got those shoes as a present and it was her first day wearing them.

At that point some of her friends came to sit down and they were sort of surprised to see her with one shoe off and and me with her other shoe on. To top it off, my guy tried to take a photo, but according to that fashion lady his angle wasn’t good enough, so she persisted to coach him on how to take a proper photo and show off the heel. Let’s just say there was a lot of commotion around my foot dressed in her shoe.

So the last photo here was done to her satisfaction, as she felt that the heel was shown properly and this shoe swap photosession ended. I am guessing that the man who was with her was probably the one who got her those shoes. If that’s the case, he got to see his gift in the midst of admiration.

Wearing Shiny Pantyhose by Fiore

May 6, 2014 under Fiore, Photoshoots

A fan asked to see more photos of this shiny style, so I put on a mini skirt and heels today and got my guy to take some photos outside in sunshine. Sunshine really brings out the gloss in these Idalia 20 den pantyhose by Fiore.

I wore this same pair previously in the airport on my flight to Cuba (that was mentioned in the newsletter that went out earlier this month), but my selfie pictures at the airport were not as nice and didn’t do justice to this beautiful style.

If you like it, it’s available at the shop section – Idalia glossy pantyhose by Fiore.
