Interview with Pepa of The Rubber Doll

Hi Everyone,

I finally am posting another interview this time with the lovely Pepa of the blog:  The Rubber Doll   She is from Romania, and I really thinks she has a great sense of style!  She was kind enough to send me these photos showing how she styles tights with her outfits, and I love them all.  I love the sheer skintone ones she is wearing in the third outfit as they complete the look in my opinion.  I also love the way the black tights in the second outfit shine when the light hits them!





1. How often do you wear pantyhose/tights and do you wear them year round?
I only wear tights when its cold, autumn and winter.

2. How many pairs do you currently have in your collection?
I think right now i have around 10.

3. What is your favorite pair that you own and pair you wear most often?
Black ones

4. What is your favorite hosiery brand(s) and why?
I dont have a favorite brand.

5. Do you keep a spare pair with you in case of getting a run?
No. Never :)

6. How do you like to style your hosiery with your outfits? Any advice for others on how to style them?
I like to wear them with skirts or dresses. Biker boots or heels.

7. What are your thoughts on the trend of bare legs that seems to be so widespread?
I love bare legs trends. Looks perfect with shorts and boots.

8. What are your thoughts about pantyhose/tights being worn by both men and women? There are even hosiery brands like Emilio Cavallini which make tights for men with barbed wire, and even skulls on them. Also French hosiery manufacturer Gerbe, made some with a fly opening. What are your thoughts on this new trend in tights and legwear?
If men love tights they should wear them. I am not agains this. I love the trend.

9. If a person said that they thought pantyhose were hot, itchy and uncomfortable what would you say to them?
Tights are cool and really comfortable.

Fogal Rigato Tights

Hi Everyone,

Today I wore the new Fogal Rigato Tights I got last week.  They are 20 denier with vertical stripes running down the leg, all the way around.  They have the Fogal waistband, and feel amazing to wear!  They are very soft, smooth and have a slight sheen to them.  This pair is in the shade Plage which is a skintone shade, similar to nude.  I think this pair would be great for the warmer weather as they are not too thick, and do allow the legs to be seen. They also have a reinforced toe.   I would recommend being careful when putting them on and taking them off as they are 20 denier and feel like they are delicate. 










Hope you enjoyed the post,

Jonathan

Interview with Dionne of Legslavish

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce another interview, this time with the lovely Dionne of the Youtube Channel:  Legslavish.  She is from the U.K. and I think she has a great sense of style and is really able to style the tights well with her outfits! She was kind enough to send me pics of how she styles her tights, and I love all three outfits!  I really love the skirt and shoes in outfit number 2 and how well they go with the black tights!






Hi I am Dionne and I am a Legslavish girl who reviews all kinds of leg wear and fashion. I have been with them for a couple of years now and am a big fan of hosiery. It gives me confidence and makes my legs look irresistible. 

1. How often do you wear pantyhose/tights and do you wear them year round?

I wear tights quite often, especially in the autumn and winter months. I do however like to take tights to festivals in the summer as they keep me warm at night and look incredible with outfits.

2. How many pairs do you currently have in your collection?
I have so many I couldn't count them... I think I have a pair for every day of the year.

3. What is your favorite pair that you own and pair you wear most often?
I love the Gatta range, all the different styles and quality of the tights.

4. What is your favorite hosiery brand(s) and why?
There are a number of brands that I love but Gatta steals the vote as they have branched out into clothing.

5. Do you keep a spare pair with you in case of getting a run?

Not if I am wearing a good quality brand. You wouldn't need any spares.

6. How do you like to style your hosiery with your outfits? Any advice for others on how to style them?
I look at colours and patterns, depending on my mood or where I am going I'll style my outfits accordingly 

7. What are your thoughts on the trend of bare legs that seems to be so widespread?

Bare legs look good if you have great legs. If feel hosiery products can help shape and appearance of your legs. 

8. What are your thoughts about pantyhose/tights being worn by both men and women? There are even hosiery brands like Emilio Cavallini which make tights for men with barbed wire, and even skulls on them. Also French hosiery manufacturer Gerbe, made some with a fly opening. What are your thoughts on this new trend in tights and legwear? Do you have any advice for guys on how to style them?

I think it's great, fashion is for both male and female, in Europe it's really big in the fashion industry that men wear hosiery products. I think if I had any advice for guys, take into account your footwear. A luxury pair of tights would not look good with a pair of tatty trainers. You need to be comfortable and confident in any outfit. If you feel great you will look great.

9. If a person said that they thought pantyhose were hot, itchy and uncomfortable what would you say to them? 

Maybe try a lower denier? Or try a different brand.


Hope you enjoyed the post,

Jonathan

Interview with Jeni of @JeniML93 on Twitter

Hi Everyone,

I am very pleased to announce another interview with the lovely Jeni of
@JeniML93 on Twitter.  She lives down in the Texas, Louisiana area.  I thought she has a great sense of style and some great shoes as well!  I love it when person completes their outfits with hosiery and a nice pair of shoes!

She kindly sent me this photo of herself wearing a pair of Fogal tights:  I think they go really well with the outfit and love the shoes as well!

I love the Seamed Fogal tights she is wearing in the second outfit!  They look amazing on her and I love the design at the back of the heel!  The shoes and dress go great with the tights.










Here is the interview:


1. How often do you wear pantyhose/tights and do you wear them year round?
I do wear them all year, of course more in fall/winter. 2/3 times a week
2. How many pairs do you currently have in your collection?
Never counted. More than 20.
3. What is your favorite pair that you own and pair you wear most often?
Don't have just one favorite. More about how it compliments outfit. I'll go purchase a pair just for the outfit, may never wear again unless I wear that outfit again. 
4. What is your favorite hosiery brand(s) and why?
 Fogal, make me feel sexy
5. Do you keep a spare pair with you in case of getting a run?
 Yes, pending on where I am or going to.
6. How do you like to style your hosiery with your outfits? Any advice for others on how to style them?
Color & texture are the most important when styling. Also I think about if I want my legs to be the focus or will they be the accent.  Advice, would to not be scared to step outta the norm. I always have ladies tell me they could never wear what I wear. They love my outfits, but feel they can't pull it off. It's about confidence & feeling great in what you have on. 

7. What are your thoughts on the trend of bare legs that seems to be so widespread?
I don't mind bare legs. It gets very hot where I live so sometimes hosiery is not comfortable. But again, it's about the total outfit to me!

8. What are your thoughts about pantyhose/tights being worn by both men and women? There are even hosiery brands like Emilio Cavallini which make tights for men with barbed wire, and even skulls on them. Also French hosiery manufacturer Gerbe, made some with a fly opening. What are your thoughts on this new trend in tights and legwear?
Whatever floats people's boats!

9. If a person said that they thought pantyhose were hot, itchy and uncomfortable what would you say to them? 
 They aren't buying the right kind. You buy cheap, you get cheap...
