Ye gods…I do not have the words to describe how much I want these Stockingirl silk stockings. Doesn’t the welt look just like stained glass? How luxurious is that? My mind is blown. I’ve never seen anything like these before. And they’re made out of silk? I die. I’ve always wanted to try a pair of silk stockings. I bet they feel like a whisper on the legs. Downside? They […]

Now let me be perfectly honest and admit I am not a fan of Victoria’s Secret at the moment. They went wayyyy overboard with the PINK line, and alienated many women who don’t like neon letters screenprinted on their behinds. However, in […]

Expect a series about my journey to find the perfect pair of “nude” stockings. In case you haven’t realized, I’m a dark-complexioned woman of color. Therefore, the typical shade of “nude” is anything but for me. I’ve amassed quite a collection of brown-hued hosiery (think coffees, chocolates, and taupes), and I can’t wait to give them all a try and discover what gives the best match. Plus, they’re all super […]

A corselette is another word […]

I’ve not yet talked about a pair of tulle stockings in my blog before. Tulle, also known as micronet, is great for people who are really hard on their stockings. People like me. Why? Because tulle requires considerably of effort to rip, run, […]

Disclosure: This blog post contains affiliate links I’ve heard rave reviews about Secrets in Lace, but haven’t yet worn any of their hosiery. That should change sometime next week as I’ve ordered two things from them. I can’t wait to try them on and give a review. Have you ever purchased anything from Secrets in Lace? Save

A real review is coming up soon (I promise), but first I have to post about these tights. You see, instead of being a responsible adult and doing my homework, I surf the net for new and wonderful hosiery. I have a constant fear of missing out on something – be it a sale, a new item, or a limited edition – so I check certain sites several times a […]

I’ll post a real review soon, but for now, it’s going to be stuff I wish I could by. Above is the Fresh Foundations by Made by Niki suspender skirt. Available in black or lilac, it costs £112.00 or $235.00 USD. I’m not sure what the skirt is made of as none of the websites want to say (powermesh, maybe? it looks like powermesh), but this is definitely an attention-getter. […]

Above are the Music Legs Striped Crocheted Pantyhose, 100% nylon, one size fits all, $8.00/pair, available in three colors: burgundy, black, and red. My entire stocking collection can be divided into three categories: plain, seamed, and fishnet. If I wanted to, I suppose I could subdivide them into further categories (as I’ve done in my tags) such colored, sheer, rht, and so on, but really, if you want to keep […]

Above are the Leg Avenue fishnet stockings, 100% nylon, one size fits all, 5.00/pair (USD), available in seven colors: black, beige, light blue, pink, purple, red, and white. You know…I really can’t complain about these. I wore them for one evening, stretched them out completely, and threw them away guilt-free. These stockings aren’t the best. The net is more octagonal than diamond shaped. The texture is a bit strange. Your […]
