Brand New Wolford Image tights!

Hi Everyone,

This weekend I came across a pair of Wolford tights that I had not seen anything else like before.  I really loved the way they looked and had to have them!  I got myself a pair on Sunday, with the combination of Black and Sahara.  The right leg has the appearance of black opaque, while the left leg is sheer and nude!  This is so cool as these tights are definitely unique and a statement piece.  While the colors don't seem to be very wild, the fact that one leg is covered in opaque black while the other is sheer nude is quite a statement and unique.  They are also offered with a sheer black leg instead of the nude.  They have a 20 denier appearance according to the package.  I must say the opaque leg feels very durable and while the nude leg feels more delicate and proper care needs to be taken towards putting this pair on as they have the sheer leg which would be more likely to get a run if you rush to get them on fast!  I love the way they feel and they are super comfortable to wear!!  The nude leg has a little bit of a shine to it in the light, but is not too shiny and could be considered a little more subtle!  I cannot wait to wear this pair again as I like to be able to make a statement and these do just that!! Even though they are 65 dollars, I highly recommend these if you want to make a statement with your outfits!

Interview with Charlotte of Captain Ch-ARGH-ley's Fashion Blog

Hi Everyone,

I have another interview this time with the lovely Charlotte of the blog:  Captain Ch-ARGH-ley's Fashion Blog.  She is from the U.K. and I think she has a wonderful sense of style.  She sent me these photos showing how she styles tights with her outfits, and I must say I think she does a wonderful job.  I love the color of the tights in the second outfit and think they go well with the dress and boots! The first ones is a great use of a nice sheer black pair!  I also love the last outfit and love the color of the shoes and skirt and think the tights really enhance the outfit!!!





My name's Charlotte, AKA Captain Charghley. I love all things vintage and nautical, so hosiery is a big part of my wardrobe, especially the 60's style brightly coloured tights! I can't remember the youngest I was since wearing hosiery, I'm pretty sure I popped out of the womb in some sort of knitted pair of tights... I wear hosiery mainly to keep my legs warm (it gets awfully cold here in England), but I have also found that switching the colour or pattern of tights in an outfit, can give it a totally different look.

1. I wear tights most days (probably 5/7 days) and do tend to wear them all year round, unless it's extremely hot, which doesn't happen too often over here.
 

2. I have way too many in my collection to even count! There is a whole suitcase just full of tights of all different thickness, colours, patterns and designs.
 

3. My favourite pair has to be my navy anchor tights which I bought from New Look a few years ago. I'm really impressed with how long they've lasted. I tend to just wear plain black the most as I'm usually in a rush to get ready in the morning and they go with anything.
 

4. I don't really have a favourite brand as I wear tights so often, I just end up buying loads from Primark as they're cheap. If I wanted something a little bit different then House of Holland would be my first choice. Pretty Polly also have some great designs and last a long time too.
 

5. If I'm wearing a nude pair for a special ocassion (like a wedding), I usually will have a spare pair in my bag as these tights are normally a lot thinner and so the risk of getting a ladder is higher. A girls always got to be prepared!!
 

6. I love matching colours together. If you've got a dress which features a few different colours, you can wear it tights in all the different colours which means 1 dress that gives a variety of outfits. When the weather gets really cold, I love to layer knee high socks over the top of tights. You can alternate the colours, so that means even more outfit ideas!
 

7. If you fell comfortable enough going bare legged then go for it! I'm always a little self conscious of flashing my knickers, so tend to always wear tights if my dress/skirt is quite short.
 
8. I think these are fab! We're living in an age now whereby it is seen as more 'acceptable' for men to wear womens clothing, and vice versa, so these brands making these womens garments designed specifically for men to wear and feel more comfortable in is a nod in the right direction. If men want to wear tights, then let them wear tights, if a woman wants to wear a tie, then so she should. We shouldn't be living in a World where your clothing is dictated by your gender. It's way more fun to mix things up!
10. If you find wearing tights hot and itchy, maybe trying wearing different brands and different materials (nylon, cotton, lycra) or you could go for leggings which are thicker and more like wearing stretchy trousers. Alternatively, no one says you must wear tights, so if your find wearing them uncomfortable, then don't wear them :)

Hope you enjoyed the post,

Reverse side of CdR Estela tights and new Brazilia tights

Hi Everyone,

I finally wore my new Brazilia tights by Cecilia de Rafael today.  I love them!  They look amazing on the legs and I really love how the pattern is so unique and colorful.  They are 80 denier and feel that they are very durable.  They are very comfortable and feel wonderful to wear all day.  I decided to try and dress things up by wearing my black Kenneth Cole shoes with my black shorts!  I think the outfit turned out very nice!
I think these tights are a great way to add some color and pattern to your outfits and wardrobe.  I don't think these would be tights for work, but for going out and making a statement, they are perfect!
















The other day I finally wore my new Cecilia de Rafael Estela tights with the reverse side showing, and I must say they look very nice on the reverse side as well!  They are not as flashy as the other side, but I really love the the the pattern looks with the lines running through the legs in a wild manner!
