November theme post; Hosiery

Time for Sophistique Noirs monthly theme post! This time it's a very well chosen subject for the season, hosiery. 
I realized when I dug through my hosiery drawer, that I have a lot of them. Since I live in a very cold place it's often leggings under the skirt and nylon stockings only in summer. But today i choosed a newly bought pair, dark blue with paisley pattern that I bought at Indiska. My son is behind the camera and when I edited the picture I saw that the picture was blurry even though he used a tripod :). Since it's friday I thought I would go a bit more colourful than usual.
As I collect everything vintage I have a vintage hosiery collection as well. Some are well used and some are safely packed in their original parcels in the box.
Theese are my new old stock stockings. Some are made in nylon and some are made in real silk.  All of them have back seams.
Look at the quality of these stockings!

I can assure you that they are in perfect quality. I have used some several times without any holes. The pink ones in the middle are never used, I'm afraid that I would look like Miss Piggy with them on.

It was quite some years ago when I used them. It was when I was a skinny girl that spent the weekends at a gig or a dancefloor.

  1. I love your new tights, but I wish your son moved the camera up a bit so I could see the rest of your outfit, too! :o)

  2. We both seem to be fans of purple tights! I'm awed by your collection of vintage tights, I just can't imagine how something so fragile can be worn for such a lon time!

  3. Your collection of vintage tights is really cool- I'd be far too afraid of ruining them to try wearing them!

  5. I am so envious of your vintage stocking collection. SO envious!! :) And I love your colorful, wintery tights. The pattern is so lovely! Those should bring some sunshine to the dark winter days. ;)
