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 be the first to know the latest news. Sometimes, however, I miss out on something spectacular, like the tights above.
They’re the Sophia tights by Falke, nylon/lycra/cotton blend, sizes S/M or M/L, sheer, matte, in colors ivory or black, $31.25 (USD)/pair. In case you can’t catch the detail from the picture, these stockings are made to look (and probably feel) like lace.
I’ve been wanting a pair of lace stockings that didn’t look cheap or tacky for awhile now, and these are it. Sadly, I found out about them too late. As of right now, the only color available is ivory in size M/L and my googlefu is only showing them on one website: mytights.com. Even sadder, there’s no indication they’ll be getting more of this item in stock.
Boo. I hate it when I miss out on things.
