Ask the Addict: Where to Buy Striped Stockings?
Every once in awhile, people stop by my blog or Twitter to ask me questions about hosiery. Of all the things I do on the blog, helping people find the right lingerie is one of my favorites. This particular question is taken from my Twitter, where an acquaintance of mine asked where she could find vertically striped tights. In the interests of conveying the “real-time” flavor of the conversation, I’ll cut and paste our Tweets directly.
@StockingsFangirl–You want fishnets, opaques, or sheers? Real stockings (garters required), stay-ups, or tights? I need details! ;-)
@StockingsAddict–garters, vertical black stripes, not fishnets maybe half opaque half sheer or all opaque.
@StockingsAddict–garters meaning real stockings.
@StockingsFanGirl–I’d definitely start with these people: www.sockdreams.com Good selection, good quality, good prices, good customer service.
@StockingsFanGirl–Just saw your most recent tweets. I still recommend Sock Dreams; they have a vertical stripes section.
@StockingsFanGirl–Dollhouse Bettie has striped stockings. I haven’ t tried Belle Epoque but they’re only $8.95.
@StockingsFanGirl–We Love Colors also has opaque vertically striped stockings in fifty colors.
I haven’t yet heard back from StockingsFanGirl, so I don’t know what pair she decided on. But if any of you ever have a stockings-related question, please don’t hesitate to either post it in the comments section of any entry, message me via Twitter, or even write to me at my e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
