I love hosiery. It keeps me warm in cooler weather, shows off the shape of one's legs well, and is just another fun "accessory" to spice up an outfit. I have a drawer full of the stuff, but for the sake of time I will only show a few of my most interesting pairs.
The first specimen is this rather tightly knit pair of hose with an interesting winter-sweater-like pattern on it. I can't remember for the life of me where I got it, but I do know I had them last winter. They're so warm. In fact, I am wearing these with a turtleneck sweater dress to work today.
The next two stockings are my favorites- a fishnet like weave with flower patterns on them. I have two of each color- black and gray- so when one set is completely worn out I can immediately begin wearing the second set. I purchase these at Target.
And finally, my striped stockings, purchased from a Halloween store last year and only worn rarely to preserve them. I've worn these to an Emilie Autumn concert, Pittsburgh Zombiefest, and for just hanging out with goth and steampunk friends.
Do you have special pairs of hosiery that you only use for special occassions? if so, why?
