Stockings – Retro Glam all the way!

I love wearing my black opaques but there is something very special when it comes to plain black stockings; holdups give a similar feel, however stockings are totally ‘retro-glam’ and the ultimate hosiery choice.

Freezing Your Hosiery?

Supermodel-Obession-Lingerie-victorias-secret-2360787-375-500

Want to know a way to make your stockings and tights last longer?
Apparently when you buy them, take them out of the packaging, lightly wet them just to the point of being damp. Take a sealable plastic sandwich bag and place the damp pantyhose inside that. Seal it up and pop it into the freezer to sit overnight, or even just a few hours. The pantyhose needs to freeze completely.
When you take them out of the freezer, don’t defrost them in the microwave, just sit them at room temperature to thaw out and dry naturally.
It also appears that freezing your pantyhose in-between wears works just as well too.
To be honest, I wouldn’t be very keen putting frozen tights on in winter but apparently the trick works?
I am, however, no scientist, so please don’t ask me why this works….

Cheesecake Stocking Photos

Hello Sailor! Here’s some playful ‘Cheesecake Photos’ to get us through Wednesday.
I love these vintage pinup ads in retro stockings, sassy pencil skirts, sling back shoes, flirty sundresses and, of course, the essential red lippy.

Optical Art Hosiery – New Fashion Trend 2013

optical imagesCAQFD0G1 imagesCADAH91A imagesCAA73WAO imagesCA555XPX imagesCAS4LNB1 imagesCA02R1C8

There is no need to adjust the computer screen or think you have square eyes!
I am seeing a huge trend towards optical illusions on the runway which will definitely filter through to the mainstream over the next couple of seasons. These eye-popping abstract graphics called Op Art are usually in black and white and when viewed they keep moving, have hidden images or flash and vibrate; even when sitting down!
Here’s some imagery from New York Fashion week, Spring 2013, designers Alexandre Herchcovitch and Marc Jacobs both had funky Op Art inspired designs.

The master of hosiery, Emilio Cavallini, has also offered some Op Art inspired pantyhose with some really striking results.

I find optical illusions to be a fascinating visual phenomena and have always appreciated the Dutch graphic artist M C Escher. Perhaps I should look at using some of his artwork for inspiration on the next range.

I only wish, however, that there was a way of achieving an ‘optical illusion’ that made my legs look longer and slimmer!

Wouldn’t that be nice?
