My trip to Vancouver

May 5, 2016 under Travel

It’s been over a year since I moved away to Calgary and finally an opportunity turned up to go for a week to Vancouver, back to where I spent several years of my life. I am loving every moment by the ocean.

I got back, saw my familiar surroundings, and had a few teary moments. Oh, I miss it, I can’t even explain how much. Hopefully it will work out for me to move back within a couple of years. I even already checked some real estate listings.

Shopping in Vancouver:

I was trying on these purple shoes by Prada. What do you think?

Eating Out in Vancouver: 

Vancouver has the best sushi! I also got to visit my friend and she prepared home-made fish for me. It was delicious.

Seeing my friends

I visited some good friends. One of them cooked home-made Asian fish for me. She always does that when I come over. Wonderful stay!

How many garter straps can you spot?

November 9, 2015 under Photoshoots

iryna in stockings legs garter straps iryna in stockings

This is my friend, Iryna. She is a model from Vancouver. I got these photos from one of her photoshoots that she did. As you see, there are a lot of garter straps on her stockings. Actually, these are stay ups with the sock part sort of hanging from the welt, but she attached a garter belt on top of it to make it look even more sophisticated. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts!

Hosiery at Vancouver Taboo Show 2015

January 27, 2015 under News

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.

I made a feathered friend!

May 31, 2014 under Love

grey parrot on Davie street in Vancouver Today I was waiting for the bus, wearing Ofelia 60 den microfiber pantyhose and my new orange shoes. I saw a man walking with a bird on his shoulder and couldn’t stop looking at him. He noticed how interested I was and allowed me to meet the bird.

He even put it on my finger and I got to hold this grey parrot. The parrot, named Sophie, was very well behaved, but still tried to sample my finger and left a gentle impression on it with its beak.

I noticed that the bird matched my legs! It was a grey parrot with some orange feathers on its tail. Too bad my bus came that moment and I had to go, otherwise I’d ask for the bird to pose sitting on top of my pantyhose. I can’t believe how much animals make my day better, just one encounter and I am smiling for the whole day.

Blogger in Gina Lurex Tights

May 22, 2014 under Fiore

Backseam is one of the toughest styles to photograph since the seams shift. These are almost perfect, I know how hard it is to keep it straight.

This pretty blogger did a photoshoot for Fiore hosiery in Gina lurex backseam tights. I like how she combined it with the theme of make up, as pantyhose are too in a way make up for the legs.

Asian Model in Taya Tights

May 20, 2014 under Fiore

If it wouldn’t be for Asians, I doubt that Vancouver would have so many women on the street in pantyhose. Asian girls are real trend setters.

This pretty girl is wearing tights by Fiore called Taya.

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.

This model is wearing Dezire by Fiore pantyhose with a tiny polka dot pattern all over. In my opinion she looks amazing, but I’d lose that silly hat though. My favourite part of her outfit beside the tights are her super sexy tall boots.

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.
