Mini-reviews: Wolford, Myla, & What Katie Did
Wolford Individual 10 Stockings--I wore these for an impromptu Wolford Wednesday with hosieryadvocate. My first impression is that these stockings absolutely uphold the Wolford reputation. The Individual 10s are extraordinarily soft and extraordinarily subtle; there are no frills, no lace, no patterns, no design...just nylon pure and simple. To me, that makes these stockings perfect for the business professional who wants to inject a little sensual luxury into their everyday suit. Finally, the Individual 10s are among the most budget friendly of the Wolford brand, retailing for $28.00 at Nancy Meyer or £15.00 at Wolford Boutique London.
What Katie Did Powermesh suspender belt--While this item has since been discontinued (along with the stellar WKD Powermesh knickers), I feel like it's representative enough of the What Katie Did brand to review here. My first impression of the suspender belt is that it manages to be functional and fun at the same time. The belt was easy to put on, and, perhaps more importantly, easy to adjust. It's also supremely comfortable. I've worn this garter belt for over twelve hours at a time, and my stockings didn't fall one inch. For those interested, the closet thing I've found to it in the current lines is the Cabaret suspender belt which is made from powermesh and organza.
Myla Isadora High Apex Bra--I picked up the Myla Isadora bra while it was on wicked sale at the first of the year. The sheer lace and elegant retro styling appealed to me. Quite simply, this bra fits me perfectly, and I'm sure most of my readers understand that one does not make that statement lightly. I've since purchased a second, identical bra. Aside from the fit, the bra looks amazing on, and certainly reflects a modern European aesthetic. Unfortunately, it's since gone back to it's regular price, and I cannot recommend spending $125.00 on any bra, no matter how much it makes me swoon.
