Sold 2 Pairs Of Hosiery At Kennedy Flea Market

It was painful to realize that I was losing so much money from the costs of renting a table. For now, I have decided to not continue, since the majority of people probably visiting do not wear hosiery.

If the table were free, then I would probably continue, even though it would use up so much time. I do not mind paying based on a share of my sales up to a certain point, because it would make it easier to pay for the table, and it would make the venture risk free.

I just need to find the right market.

Agyness Deyn's Red Outfit With Black Sheers

[I tried to post this earlier, but Blogger did not seem to let me. The problem was something related to the new buggy system.]

Check out these Agyness Deyn photos if you are still debating about whether or not you can wear black sheers with red clothing.

I Should Be Posting More

I found out that we can switch back to the old Blogger. This means that I should be publishing more.

Read My Writing At An Event

I was invited to read at the central branch of the Surrey Public Library. I read a little bit of my assignment from my correspondence course.

I wore my favourite black shorts and semi opaque hosiery with a grey shirt. Nobody said anything about it, although many would have recognized me from a past event. The photo was taken about 2 weeks ago, after church. I loved my look so much that I asked my dad to take a photo of me, so that I could show you.

I do wonder, though, how I am supposed to bring this to everybody's attention, without making it a big deal. I wonder if I could just bring up the topic. That would be weird, I think.

1 thing that I liked about this outing is the confidence that I had. My legs are still freshly epilated, and everything seems to look okay.

TRESemmé Commercial For Split Ends

It is interesting that the video shows a woman and her friends wearing hosiery after the woman gets the TRESemmé hair treatment. Essentially, they are saying that hosiery looks nice. The rest of my post shows you the video.

Auditioned Today Instead Of Yesterday

I doubt that I will get the part, but I did my best, and enjoyed it, even though it was nerve wracking.

1 interesting thing was a young actress with a short skirt and opaque hosiery. She seemed to have a hole and a run. She disappeared for a while, and when she came back, everything seemed okay. It was hard to tell if the hole and run were hidden from my perspective. It was just something that I noticed.

Hosiery Popularity In Greece

During difficult times, do you buy more hosiery or less hosiery? Honestly, I never thought about it until I read an article about it. It seems that the Greek consumers had to cut back and make sacrifices. I hope that they come out of it okay.

Will Visit Acting Agent

When I tried to get the audition, the agent said that she liked my look, so we tried to set a time for meeting up, in hopes that she would represent me. She is an acting agent for commercials. I will show up, wearing shorts and hosiery. I hope that she likes it.

Will Audition For Commercial Today.

I got another audition from Craig's List. They will send me in today. At the time of writing this, I have not been given any new information, so I will wear my favourite black shorts, and a pair of black semi opaques.

Will Be On Set Tonight

Tonight's work seems pretty interesting, but boring, which is the way that I like it. I don't want to do anything too difficult right now.

As usual, I want to wear hosiery and shorts, but the scene seems to call for something more mainstream.

Tried To Sell Hosiery At A Flea Market

On Saturday, I went to Kennedy Flea Market to sell hosiery, and it costed me $16, but I sold nothing. That was a horrible experience. There were so few customers because of a parade. It should pick up again this coming Saturday. I will try it again. A lot of people should be get pay cheques, which will give them more money to spend.

Selling At The Kennedy Flea Market In Surrey

I will go to the Kennedy Flea Market today, to sell hosiery from I am not very optimistic, but I should be able to get rid of at least 5-6 pairs. I will let you know.

Blogger Is Not Working

Blogger seems to have stopped working. How odd.

Leg Watching

I went to perform as an extra in movie on Wednesday. I wanted to wear shorts and hosiery, but I decided to not do it, because it was raining, and because they probably would not have allowed me to wear it anyways.

I ended up watching a woman's pair of legs. It was kind of neat to see what she showed up wearing, and then get changed into a couple of different pairs.

I wrote about this on Thursday, and expected it to show up Friday, around noon, but it turns out that Blogger does not work very well. It seems that the blog post never got posted even though it was clearly scheduled. I am frustrated that when I try to edit my blog posts, the text disappears. I hate Blogger for forcing this on us.

Wore Nice Shorts And Hosiery On Sunday

I went to church for the first time in a few weeks. I wore Linda by Trasparenze from The Stylish Fox [see my review of Linda hosiery].

I honestly felt really good about how I looked. Have you ever watched a show when somebody gets a new wardrobe? Well, I felt confident about everything because Linda is a quality pair of hosiery, and because I wore my favourite shorts, and because I epilated a couple of hours before leaving, and because I showered an hour before leaving, and because I wore a shirt that I liked.

My only sadness was because of my shoes causing some wear just below the ankles.

Victoria Justice In Red Dress And Black Mostly Opaques

[For some reason, Blogger never published this blog post, even though Blogger said that the blog post was scheduled.]

Check out these Victoria Justice photos. Red goes so well with black mostly opaques.

On an unrelated note, do you think that she is wearing shimmery hosiery? I do not think so. I could be wrong, so please comment below.

Movie: One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

You will see 3 or more traditional nurses wearing white sheer hosiery and their typical white modest nurse uniforms. The nurses were quite beautiful, even though they were not glamourous. I recommend One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest for watching this Friday. I realize that it has been highly rated, but I give it a 6/10, because it did not seem like a very meaningful movie in the grand scheme of things. I think that the actors and actresses did well at their jobs.

TV Show: Girls

In the commercial for this new show, they showed the main characters wearing a lot of hosiery of different colours, with relatively short skirts.

The series premier of Girls is tonight on HBO, so I decided to post tomorrow's blog post early.

1 interesting piece of information is that the lead star of the show is the writer, creator, and director. This shows me that if she wears a lot of hosiery in the show, then she must really like it, as opposed to other actresses who might have little say in what costumes are worn.

After you watch it, comment below to let us know what you think!

Good Phrasings To Describe Hosiery And Men

It dawned on me the other day, that the way we describe our fashion choice would probably make a huge first impression.

When it comes to something like sunglasses, we probably would not think very much of it, if somebody were to wear a pair. What is the big deal, right?

The problem with hosiery, is that it is often related to obscene photos and thoughts of men. I think that we can avoid those images in people's minds by just phrasing things to focus on the real issue. For example, I can say, "I wear pantyhose!" or "When I wear shorts, I clad my legs with hosiery/pantyhose/tights/etc.!". I think that putting it that way really creates a context before people are allowed to form opinions.

I am tempted to test this out, by surveying the public.

What do you think? Thank you for reading!

Wear Tights In Spring And Summer

Stop. I see what you are doing. Do not even try to put away your hosiery in spring and summer. ;^P

Just because opaque hosiery is warmer than sheer hosiery, does not mean that you cannot wear them through summer. You will probably have moments when you could wear pants, so there is no reason why you cannot wear opaque hosiery, which is thinner than pants, in those situations.

Lisa Armstrong gives more information on hosiery in spring, regarding colour choices and brands.

Is Paris Hilton Wearing Lingerie Or Not?

This celebrity gossip piece says that Paris Hilton wore lingerie as her party outfit to her mom's birthday celebration. I am not a Paris Hilton fan, but I think that society gives her an unnecessary hard time. The is hosiery meant to be worn that way, and the little black dress looks like a sexy little black dress. If they want to argue about what is modest and what is not, then they could make a point, but to say that she is just trying to get attention is a little unreasonable, because a lot of women wear similar outfits and still get support from society.

Am I right? How would you feel if a relative wore that to your important celebration?

Thank you for reading!

Movie: Date Night

Tina Fey fans will enjoy seeing her full length sheer hosiery in lingerie, in the movie, Date Night. It should keep a variety of viewers entertained, because it has a lot of action, some suspense, some romance, and some humour. I would give it a 7/10.

Is She Wearing Pantyhose? #60

Gal #60, who is Samantha Brick can be seen in 3 articles: 60a, 60b, 60c. The photos to guess about are at the top of each page. The first 2 articles use the same photo. Scroll down to see other photos of her, but those are not for guessing.

She does have nice legs. What do you think? For those of you who read the articles, what do you think about what she says?

Hosiery Package Blog

Strange Hosiery is blog about various hosiery packages that the owner has collected. The owner thinks that some of them are weird, but I'm not so sure. Please take a look and let me know.

One particular package has what appears to be an interesting illusion. Click on the photos, and then stare at it for a while, and you might see something. I think that this gives me inspiration for my e-commerce site. I would love to be able to create some nice photos that have art to it, so that we can enjoy seeing them again and again.

As it is, Silks brand hosiery has a style called, "Illusion". This would really lend itself to optical illusions in their art. So would names like "Phantom" or "Whisper".

Can you think of any brands or styles that could use some optical illusions that are very artistic? Post them in the comments below, please. Thank you for reading!

Feet Are Smoother

A while ago, I mentioned that my feet were so rough, that they would cling to my hosiery like velcro. It seems that my feet are much smoother now.

For the last month or so, that rough skin had been peeling off in the shower. This week, the last of it came off. I was so surprised. All this time, I thought that it was just my imagination that the skin was coming off. I expected it to get rough again. I guess that is was the calloused skin that I got from working at Sears and doing door-to-door work.

The thought of putting on hosiery, and letting my heel rub against it seems so pleasurable. Thank you for reading!

Date In Shorts And Hosiery

Do you remember when I posted that blog post about the photo of the guy in skirt/kilt and hosiery? I saw the photo when a female friend of mine shared it on Facebook. She mentioned that she would love to hang out with the guy, so I asked her if she was serious. She was.

So, I shared some photos of me wearing shorts and hosiery, and wrote, that if she liked what she saw, then we could hang out. She loved them, and we are scheduled to meet up on the Friday, April 13th.

I will keep you updated. Pray that I do not mess this up! :^D Thank you for reading!

Updated My Blujay Site Banners

As some of you know, I have an e-commerce site on Blujay, as well as I decided to repurpose the Blujay site as a service centre, where I can post items for large purchases, and items for special order. To help make it a welcoming place, and to really ensure that people understand what they are looking at, I created a couple of new banners. You can see the large banner by clicking on the link above. Here is the smaller banner.

I am particularly proud of the large banner, because I made it from scratch, except for the head. I got the head from OpenClipArt.

I would like some feedback. Does the guy in the banner look like he is standing behind a counter?

Need To Reorder Waistband-Free Tights

On Tuesday, somebody ordered the last few pairs of Silks Waistless Tights [style #19295, not #2395]. That is a milestone for me, because I have never needed to replenish my inventory. I sold over 18 pairs of them, plus a few other styles, in just under 5 months. So, I think that it is safe to say, that, at this rate, I will be able to make over $500/year, without trying. Once I factor in the returning customers, I bet that I will make about $1200/year in 2013. I would not be surprised if it stayed roughly the same, after that. Then again, I hope to create some ads, which should help even more.

I deliberated, over the last 2 days, over what I should also order with them, since I will not need to order so many pairs. I think that I will try ordering Energizers firm support pantyhose, since a friend might order a few. That being said, if you think that you might like to buy any Energizers or Silks, then please check out my web site, or make a special request.

Thank you for reading!

Hosiery With Short Shorts And Modest-like Accessories

A Style Bistro article showed a wonderful photo of Kristin Cavallari wearing short shorts and black opaques [click on the photo to enlarge it]. I think that she is very beautiful. Notice how she is wearing all black, but there is not any monotony. She gets this look by combining shiny clothing with matte clothing, and combining slim fitting clothing with fluffy dense clothing.

Door To Door Hosiery Salesman [Day 1]

Wow. That was a tough night. I even quit an hour and a half early. The rest of my post tells you all.

I went door to door, seeing if I could sell some of the hosiery that had sent me. I did this to make some cash, and because I feel obligated to get rid of some of the hosiery. The people were polite, but they were not interested. I am not entirely clear on why that is. I suspect that it has nothing to do with my appearance. I also suspect that it is simply because people in general do not like to buy stuff at the door.

My first approach was "Hi. My name Eugene. I'm trying to start my own local business. May I tell you 3 more things about it?" Usually, they do allow me to carry on. Then I say, "My business is a hosiery business. My friend is the manufacturer, and he is in Ontario. By buying a pair or more, you would end up supporting 2 Canadian businesses.".

I ended up changing the last line a few times. First, I changed it to something like, "Do you know anybody in the home, or are there family members would like a pair?". I think that I modified it to "You could support a local business by buying a pair for somebody here, or for a family friend.". Not surprisingly, it still did not work.

I am getting sleepy now, so I cannot remember what I said after that, but I think that I changed it around, on the way home, on the bus. I decided to change it, because when I ask for permission, it felt like begging. I will still ask for permission, because I want to be respectful of people's time, but in general, I hope to have a better approach.

My current script will involve a mention of me donating the hosiery to a thrift store, and me donating a portion of the proceeds to a non-profit group. The idea is that the majority of people do not even really care about hosiery. So, why talk about features or being a Canadian business? I bet people are more interested in supporting a non-profit.

Any advice?? Thank you for reading!
