Photos Of Defective Clearance Hosiery Uploaded

If you have any questions, then post them there, and not here.

Making Grey Footless Out Of Good Condition Hosiery

I decided to do the unthinkable: cut up the toe portions of hosiery to make footless hosiery, even though they are still in great condition. I figure that if I were to make a good impression on onlookers, then I would need to vary my outfits, otherwise people might think that I am wearing the same pairs every day. That means using hosiery that is not black on some days, and black on others.

The pair that I am about to cut up is more expensive than the average hosiery that I wear. It is full of lines that are not pin stripes. I think that the manufacturer did a poor job on it. Even though it is more expensive than the average pair, I do not think that I would wear it for any special ocassion, due to the unusual stripes, and due to the feel of the fabric, so I would be getting better use out of it as footless hosiery at work.

Have you ever cut up a good pair on purpose?

Somebody Looked At My Legs Maybe

While waiting in line for the bus, on Saturday morning, to come home, I noticed that somebody looked down towards my legs. I do not know if that is exactly what she was looking at, but I tried to pretend that I did not notice.

I was wearing my grey mostly opaque hosiery.

Later, I checked out my leg to see what might have been staring at for so long. It turns out that I got a run, and that might have caught her attention and alerted her to the fact that I was wearing hosiery.

I think that our message is getting out there.

Movie: The Dark Knight Rises

I was thoroughly impressed by Anne Hathaway's performance in The Dark Knight Rises, during my birthday weekend. You probably all ready know the role that she plays, but I am surprised that the movie never mentioned her character's alter ego name. In other words, we see her normal given name, but that is all that we see, unless I missed it completely.

I will not describe any of her outfits or when they appear, because I do not want to give any spoilers, but they are so worth your time. I recommend it on DVD or Netflix or TV, where you can pause and watch in slow motion.

I think that they overdid her action scenes, because she does not strike me as a believable action star.

That being said, her looks and performance look good. In my opinion, she exudes a glamour that reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. She also displays a convincing performance, that is suitable to her character's struggles and desires.

The truth is that I find that all the characters in this film have a more down to earth aspect to them.

Regarding the overall story, I thought that it was pretty interesting. I do not know what the comic was like, so I cannot make a fair comparison. Do any of you read comics? If so, then how do you feel about it? Is the Dark Knight version of Batman consistent with the original comics?

Choosing Hosiery For Work

I am debating with myself about what footless hosiery to wear to work. I think that the job is going to make my skin so rough, that it would be pointless to wear hosiery that feels nice to the touch. It would only get wornout much faster, and I will not be able to enjoy the smooth texture.

Therefore, I am planning on wearing the pair of footless hosiery that I like the least. Oddly enough, it is the most expensive pair. It seems to feel the least pleasant and the most uncomfortable.

A problem that I have is that I do not have any other pair of hosiery that I dislike enough and appears respectable enough that I can wear it to work. In other words, if I only wore what I disliked that looked respectable enough, then I will end up wearing 1 pair. I am concerned that people might think that I never changed my clothes.

Maybe I just have to be prepared to kiss the grey footless hosiery goodbye, even though I like it. Maybe I just need to appreciate the good times, and not hold on forever.

An option is to wear pants, but that would mean not showing people that men wear hosiery. Then again, if I wear opaque hosiery, then most of them would never notice, anyways. Therefore, wearing pants might be a better option. Then again, if I wear pants, then I would need to find 2 pairs of them, so that people will not think worse of me, and finding 2 pairs of pants that I do not like is similar to finding 2 pairs of hosiery that I do not like.

If you have advice, then please do share.

Zooey Wears Different Black Hosiery

A fashion critic criticizes Zooey Deschanel's choice of hosiery. Zooey is 1 of my favourite hosiery wearing gals, because her looks appear so normal, and she is so pleasant on the eyes. So, the article got me a little bit upset. Judging by the comments at the bottom of the page, it appears that I am not the only person. I think that their comments pretty much just settle the debate, but here are a few photos that prove that we are right.

It is hard to tell in some photos, because of the lighting, but the critic should do some research before expressing his opinion.

To Zooey and my readers, keep wearing hosiery all year long, and keep your legs silky and smooth!

Hosiery On My Birthday

And so, the weekend has come to pass, and my birthday is come and gone.

This year, I felt like wearing old hosiery, which I would not have to worry about, since my thumbs are really worn out and rough. I decided against it, and treated my myself to a fun hosiery day. I wore 1 of my favourite opaques.

Unfortunately, I do not have a style name to share with you. I was given them by an ESL student, and the label does not say anything other than "Donna Karen New York" [and not DKNY] and the size. I guess that they do not care if we buy them again.

This pair was given to me long time ago, before I started blogging about hosiery, if I recall correctly.

I expected the hosiery to be soft and silky, and it is, but it feels harder than what I recall. I think, though, that that memory comes from the experiences of my Energizers Medium Support Tights. I love this, but I will not feel upset if I do not find a replacement, since Energizers Medium Support Tights seem to be the penultimate pair, that is soft, silky, and durable.

I hope that this does not sound like a sales pitch, even though it sort of is, but I happen to believe what I write, and it is not about the profits. I am happy to suggest going to my competitors, as well.

Anyhow, the Donna Karen hosiery are 1 of many favourite things that made my day special.
