    It totally depends on my mood, although I do have a couple stand-bys that I'll wear with my tights. If I'm not really too concerned, I stick with my mary janes or these new cartoon-ish style red sneakers. Occationally I'll wear stockings with my taller boots, but I don't wear them on an everyday basis. Pretty much whatever's the most comfortable, and hopefully cute with them.
    Nope, I don't really wear my stockings during the summer; mostly for practical reasons. I suppose for getting dressed up, but otherwise not.
    And I've never tried dying them, although it is an interesting idea! B)

    I like the tye-dye idea. I think if you have tights that are mostly cotton it would work just fine. Purple, since you are slim, you could probably get the largest size of girls' tights and try it. Children's tights are easier to find in a mostly-cotton blend, and often in heavier weights. I'm a little bigger than you are and I can wear a girls' x-large (14-16)

    joined forces for the launch of a limited edition range of hosiery and bodywear mid of october 2004.

    Wool pantihoses/tights

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this topic. But I am looking for wool or cashmere pantihoses/tights. Anyone knows where to buy wool or cashmere pantihoses/tights or any brand that would have them?

    Wolford makes merino wool tights- they're pretty pricy though- at around 50 dollars a pair--

    I am sure someone out there is producing cashmere tights, but I am guessing they will be very, very expensive - -

    Why not google search for "wool tights" or "cashmere tights"? I'm sure you come up with plenty of hits - - If you're looking for rec. for brick and mortar stores, I'd try TJ Maxx or Daffy's, etc. You could also try a dance store in your area. Some ballet warm-up tights are wool-based.

    The japanese brand Tabio probably would have loads..in every colour of the rainbow.
    H&M makes cheap wooly ones.

    Hose, tights, stockings: colors!

    I wasn’t sure if this should go here or in the shopping section but I want to know where everyone buys their hose especially in non-traditional colors and patterns.

    Thanks!
