You have probably seen photos of me wearing Foot Traffic hosiery, but I feel that I did not do the product justice: my lighting was not very good; my camera was not very powerful. Foot Traffic has a blog post with some Flickr photos that show how nice the hosiery really looks. When I look at those legs, I feel like saying, "Yum! Yum!".

There are many reasons that we wear them. Usually, it is personal enjoyment. Let us remember that there are many people who must wear them. So, if you do not care either way about yourself, then wear visibly for somebody else in need. By wearing them in public, you would be doing your part to make hosiery a mainstream garment, which means that less children will need to focus on how they look.

I was looking for quotes about pantyhose and tights. I found this.
The worst was when my skirt fell down to my ankles, but I had on thick tights underneath.
You can read it here. The lesson here is that hosiery saved the day.

Hosiery can be enjoyed by everybody. It is not just for business wear, or just for evening attire.
Gal #39 is any of the girls in the photo. I thought that I knew the correct answers, but I took a look at the 5 other photos to give me a better opinion.
What do you think?

I think that you will really enjoy this. It is not a hosiery story about some guy wearing it in public, and yet hosiery is still a significant part of the plot. It is very family friendly. Bear in mind, though, that it was just a writing practise, so it might not be very well written. Read the remainder of my post for the story.

In the previous poll nobody participated! :^O I am going to assume that nobody understood what I was talking about. I added in that I was asking about the piece hosiery that is used for checking rough skin. In other words, it is a follow up from Thursday's
Used Hosiery blog post.
I like the tattoo hosiery as an occasional treat. As long as nobody is taking the style too seriously, then I think that the style has potential.
In the previous blog post, I explained that you could use a piece of hosiery as a tool for checking how rough your skin is. Is it worth the effort?

What an amazing achievement! I just found out that they reached this wonderful milestone a short while ago. This says to me, that hosiery is selling well. Good job UK Tights. I'm proud to know of you and hope to get to know you.

The shipping rates for my online stores will be based entirely on Canada Post's shipping rates. I just wanted to post them for all of our future reference. Read the remainder of my post for more info.

On this page, these Nine West Poof Ballet Flats are my favourite. What are your favourites?
As far as her hosiery goes, I feel that they even out the texture, even though they are not noticeable.

I also added The Stylish Fox to my page that lists where to buy colourful hosiery. They have not listed every colour for every pair, but they do take special orders. You could consult a colour guide for the Trasparenze brand that lists all colours. Contact them for more information regarding special orders.
To find the colourful hosiery, you need to bring down the tights menu, or the stockings menu. Each of them are different. Each of them have their own colourful hosiery section.
It seems that the hosiery company, Foot Traffic, bought over both domains, so that we will not be confused anymore. The new address is better, because it does not use frames. The older address just takes the newer site and puts it in a frame. I will update my page that lists where to buy colourful hosiery.

She does not wear pants, nor leggings, nor a skirt, nor a long shirt, nor shorts. She wears just opaque hosiery and a short shirt, for her outfit of the day. Read the remainder of my post for the video and the survey.

During the start of this week, I juggled a couple of jobs, and I got let go from 1 of them, yesterday. My manager was really good about it, and he was looking out for my best interest, it seems. He said that he just wanted to save my time, and he offered to be a good reference. He also mentioned that he loved my work ethic.
Juggling 2 jobs is why I did not have time to blog for yesterday's post.
An interesting encounter did happen yesterday. Read the rest of the post for the details.
During the day, I worked at a telemarketing job. A guy asked me if I bike.
I just said,
No, no., and went back to work. It dawned on me, that he must have come to that idea some how. He probably thought that I biked because of my hosiery, so I turned to him, and said,
You mean because of this?, and pointed to my white opaques. The pair was new, by the way. It did not have any pink in it. I was wearing my beige shorts, so that means I took a rare break from my sloppy grey shorts.
I just wear them because I like them. I read about trends, and I wanted to put my knowledge to good use. I wanted to see if I could start a fashion trend with something really out there, then I'd know if I did a good job, or not., I said.
It doesn't really seem out there to me., he said.
Cool. Thanks., I said, with a smile. It was cool to be able to get that feedback like that. It was very encouraging.
So, there you have it, guys [and gals]: a job where you can work, while wearing shorts and visible hosiery.
The other day, I was struggling to wash some pink colour out of my white hosiery. I had accidentally put it in my hosiery bag, with my reddish wine hosiery.
So, even though your favourite pairs of colourful hosiery might have so many runs and snags, you might want to keep them for soaking with your other hosiery, to pass on some colour. This will work best with colourful thick opaques passing on colour to light coloured or white coloured hosiery.
Have you ever done this before?

I find that most instructions do not explain very well how to put on hosiery. In this video, she says to scrunch the tights, which is the best way to go. Most instructions say to roll the tights, which is not really true. She demonstrates it.
Let me know if you found a better video.

Hosiery for work.
Hosiery for romance.
Hosiery for play.
Hosiery for all day, every day!
Gal #37 is interesting. I found her on a pantyhose picture website.
What do you think?

I was very surprised to read that compression hosiery could reduce snoring, but their explanation makes sense. I feel like I need to go out and buy a pair of compression hosiery.
If you wear hosiery for this purpose, then please share your testimony.

I noticed on a YouTube video, that the name brand was spelled as 2 words. I thought that it would be best to check the official web site, and sure enough, Razzamatazz's history page shows its own name being written as 1 word.
The logo shows 2 words, but that is probably because of sizing and spacing requirements. With logos, they tend to have more leeway.
Did you know about the complaints about Razzamatazz's new commercial? The Advertising Standards Bureau felt that the ad was okay. Do not watch the video on the news page. I found that the YouTube page streamed more smoothly.
What do you think? Is the bureau being too morally loose, or are some people making false accusations?

They moved the hosiery section downstairs. It seems smaller, but at least they tidied it up, and updated the stock. They seem to now have all 3 sizes of black and brown of style #2010 Silks tights. Now is a good time to stock up on it. It might not be on sale, but at least it is available.

I am so glad to see another blog entry about The Stylish Fox stocking up on shimmery Fiore hosiery. Some of the pairs are for limited offer, because they are being discontinued.
If you do not want to buy them, then at least look at the beautiful photos. :^)
I went to a job interview today, and I got an offer for telemarketing. Because they do not come across as pushy, I am excited about the job.
I wore a golf shirt, my ugly grey shorts, black sheers, and white runners. You can get jobs, while wearing shorts and sheers to interviews in some places.
As I said in an earlier blog entry, I want to put my sheers to good use. Honestly, I do miss wearing them.
1 problem with some of the opaques that I have are that they tend to pill a lot. It gives me a bad feeling when I see that I put so much wear and tear on the hosiery, and it is only from wearing it with shabby clothing.
Another thing that I will probably do is convert my damaged opaques to footless hosiery, and then start wearing socks with them. The idea is that many of the places that I go to are kind of dirty, and I do not want to expose my favourite hosiery to those floors.
Do you have certain hosiery rules?

Eugene, do you have many friends out there in Vancouver? What do they think of your choice to wear hose? Do they wear themselves? For me, only my immediate family knows that I wear and I go out in shorts/hose and am real hesitant to wear in front of friends/family. Would just like to know your experiences. Thanks.
It dawned on me, that I have not given a major update on anything, and have only been giving you all tidbits here and there. Read the remainder of my post for the info.

These lovely ladies look like they are on the
cuddly side, but they seem to be quite friendly. They also seem quite supportive of the troops. I will give them 5th place for the Hooters Girls Photo Contest.

I have mentioned my hosiery choices for kilts. What do you prefer? Please leave a comment below.
Perhaps a used pair of hosiery can be split in half, so that each leg covers most of the arm. Ideally, it would be best to have some control top or stocking top on each arm warmer. It would also be best to sew a seam on each raw edge, or at least put a bunch of nail polish on it, to prevent runs and ladders. Do not forget to make a hole for a thumb in each arm warmer, so that as much of your arm can be covered as possible.
I wore black day-sheer hosiery with my shorts, when I went to work. I think that some people looked at me, but for the most part, it was an uneventful day.
It was a positive experience for me, because I have not worn black sheers for quite some time. For quite some time, the only sheers that I only wore were skin coloured. I only wore them in a couple of types of situations. When I wore my kilt, I wanted to keep the focus on the kilt, and not my legs. When I wore shorts and hosiery with my mom, she would want me to wear skin coloured hosiery, so that nobody would see my hosiery clad legs very easily.
I am glad that I can put the black sheers to good use. I can finally start clearing out my hosiery drawer, as they get worn out.
I went to work today, and on the way there and back, I saw some nice hosiery. Some were opaque, and some were sheer, and as you might expect they were mostly matched to shorts.
They were so distracting. Maybe I should start taking photos of them.
The main thing, though, is that we can see that dark coloured hosiery is alive and well in summer. The weather started cloudy, though, but still. Have you spotted any dark hosiery in sunny weather?

Normally, I would prefer to wear a pair of shorts, but I think that it would be nice to wear my kilt to Doolin's Irish Pub, in downtown Vancouver. I will need to wear it there, because they have a kilts night, on the first Thursday of every month, and all kilt wearers get a free beer.
Other activities that I have planned are going out for an Orange Julius smoothie, maybe some frozen yogurt, and maybe some Chinese food. Chinese restaurants are common here, but they are still a treat to me. I might also take some photos, but I don't have new outfits.
Of course the day will still include chores. I'll probably still do some writing, too.
I'll keep you posted, as I come up with more ideas.
I plan to go out, and eat at The Keg. I've never been there before. Even though it's a very common restaurant, I feel like it is a special occasion. I'll probably wear a nice pair of shorts. We'll see how it goes. I'll blog about it.

This middle aged woman is 58. The article has a small photo of her wearing dark green hosiery.
At first, I thought that it would be weird to watch a woman play Peter Pan, but now I would probably enjoy watching her. The idea is that I would be watching an older woman wear hosiery and perform in a play. I think that it would be nice.
