silk stockings…

…yeah I want some. Doesn’t the welt look just like stained glass? Pure luxury. Sadly, my dear and much appreciated readers, this mini-post is all I can muster at 1:32 a.m. The series on my search for “nude” stockings should be starting soon. For now, it’s off to bed. P.S. The stockings are available here (though not in the color shown above, I believe) if you’re interested.

Mytights.com is offering a 33% off sale on all Aristoc hosiery. I’ve never tried the Aristoc line, but I’m tempted to purchase a pair or two of their 5 denier (!!!) stockings for the summer heat. StockingsDirect is also having a summer sale. I’m thinking […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard that Victoria’s Secret is having their semi-annual lingerie sale. Now let me be perfectly honest and admit that I am not a fan of Victoria’s Secret right now. They went wayyyy overboard with the PINK line, and alienated many women who don’t like neon letters screenprinted on their fannies. However, in recent […]

what’s next?

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 […]

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–like me. Why? Because tulle requires a lot of effort to rip, run, or […]

I’ve heard rave reviews about Secrets in Lace, but haven’t yet tried 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. Alisha 7 Denier RHT in Coffee Sheer Fishnet Pantyhose in Coffee

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 writing my thesis, 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 day, always wanting to […]

I’ll post a real review soon, but for now, it’s going to be lust. 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?), but it’s definitely an attention getter. Seriously, this is too extraordinary to hide. You can […]
