Lady Gaga Braves Cold Winter In Sheer Hosiery

I have mentioned before that wearing hosiery with shorts in -10°C weather is possible. If Lady Gaga can wear sheers with no skirt, or pants in 25°F or -4°C weather, then we can wear opaques with shorts.

Wear Your Team's Colours

I have included links to several photos showing people wearing outrageous outfits that make perfect sense when they cheer for their team. I realize that we have seen situations like this before, but an illustration is worth 1000 words, and it might encourage people to wear hosiery [i.e. pantyhose, nylons, tights, etc.]. That being said, these situations are proof positive that people are willing to break societal norms for this unique type of situation, and to create a new norm. We can use these situations to overcome objections.

Read the remainder of the blog entry to see what I mean.

Shakespearean Styles Compared To Leggings As Pants Look

I noticed a similarities between the women's fashion of wearing leggings with no pants, skirts, or shirts and the men's fashion from 1450 to 1500. Also, I think that I have new way of getting hosiery on the legs of the mainstream guys out there. If this sounds good to you, then read the remainder of this blog entry.

The Importance Of Choosing Good Boots

I wanted to recommend the perfect types of boots to wear with your hosiery and formal shorts in winter, when you actually have snow on the ground. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge, because most the men's winter boots tend to be casual. Read the remainder of the blog entry to see my 1 recommendation.

Bear in mind that I do not make recommendations for casual winter wear, because it is easier to do that on your own, without my help.

A New Convert In My Orchestra?

I went to orchestra rehearsal last night, and I wore the blue opaques that I bought from Foot Traffic, with a white turtleneck, a hoodie sweat shirt, and my least favourite black shorts. I felt uncomfortable wearing such a bright colour with my outfit, but the other opaques were in the laundry, or were being saved for my better clothes.

Read the remainder of the blog entry for the details of my discussions with a couple of fellow performers.

Is Mrs. Obama Wearing Hosiery??

I thought that she always goes bare legged, or wears pants, and/or wear socks. Would 1 of you good readers, please confirm whether or not she is wearing mostly opaque black hosiery and thigh high boots?

I had to page down twice, to see a bigger version.

If I used an incorrect title for Michelle Obama, then please forgive me. I know that that title is not politically correct, but I think that it is okay to refer to her in that way for simple purposes.

Guessing Game

Somebody made an interesting guessing game. She showed us 2 hosiery pictures, and then asked us to guess which was most expensive. I was wrong. Try it, just for fun, and then let us know how you did.

We should probably do more of these games.

My Book Is On The Shelf Of An Actual Book Store

I am excited about it, because this means that people are going to see that guys do wear hosiery. Even if they do not buy, they will probably still see it, as they browse that shelf.

Article: Sheer Hosiery Might Come Back In Style

The fellow does not directly answer the question, but he does address the issue: "Is sheer black hosiery back in style?"

In Vancouver, I sometimes see women wearing skin coloured or black day sheers. I think that it has become acceptable.

Spoke To Pastor About Wearing Hosiery

On Friday, my pastor and I spoke about me wearing hosiery. He had given me permission in another situation to wear it while performing. During this discussion, I felt that the idea had more credibility in his eyes.

We're gaining ground.

Article: Colourful Hosiery Highlighted

Some interesting news came into my inbox lately. It seems that MTV was excited to highlight the hosiery that 4 fashion bloggers modeled. I bet that hosiery is here to stay, and it will be the up and coming generation that will lead the way, while the bare leg generation will die off still unclad.

Convert Damaged Full Length To Footless And Add Knee Highs

Just a while ago, I took 1 of my favourite pairs, and converted them into footless hosiery, because they were so worn out and so badly damaged. I combined them with knee highs, and I can say that they feel wonderful. It is good to know that this great feeling fabric still has lots of life left in it. The knee highs are HUE opaques. For more ideas, click used, which can also be found in the right column, under Popular Topics.

Article: In Support Of Hosiery And Open Toed Shoes

Julee Wilson shows women how to wear opened toed shoes and hosiery. I recommend that women go with it.

As for men, I think that the only open toed shoes that we have are casual sandals, and I kind of wonder if we can get away with it. If we do not care about how we look, and if we do not mind getting dirt and rough stuff between our hosiery and sandals, then we definitely can. There are situations like that, I am sure, but for the most part, I think that guys cannot get away with it.

Do any of you guys and gals wear hosiery and sandals?

Secret Luxury And Secret Opaques Might Be The Same

I wrote about Secret Luxury hosiery. For all of you Secret Luxury fans, I encourage you try buying Secret opaque hosiery. I think that they do not have a style name for their opaque hosiery.

While wearing them again, I realized that Secret Luxury really feels a lot like the other Secret opaques that I have. This is good news, because I could not find Secret Luxury anymore in stores or online. I suspect that Secret just rebranded the hosiery to help it to sell better.

Halloween 2010

I was pretty determined to dress up as a jester, but I did not have any time to make the costume. I am on a tight budget too. Fortunately, I found some nice templates on the web for making a jester's hat. I can see that I was way off, when it came to making a hat, using my own techniques.
