Fully fashioned nylons.
The very words either strike fear - pinging suspenders and freezing thighs!
Glamour - straight seams and dressing to impress!
I'm the former, I'm afraid - practical and down to earth, but it didn't stop me buying these in the charity shop! Ballito Serenade stockings in Bermuda shade.
Brought back a lot of memories. My friend and I used to work in a small department store when we were at college and we just loved it when we had to "keep an eye" on the department that sold tights, stockings, etc - we knew all the shades - American Tan, Pewter and especially Cream Soda - which was very popular in the seventies, it was a pale, creamy colour.
My next find was in among the linens and at first I thought it was a bit of fabric, but it turned out to be a full length apron. I had a feeling it was a keeper as the fabric felt like really good quality, it hadn't been used and still had its tag on.
When I got home I checked out Green Gate and discovered all their lovely products! Wonder who handed this in to the charity shop in these Cath Kidston days?!
I love it! I can now throw out the old apron I've been wearing for ages - a scruffy old blue and white stripe, butcher's type practical one. Now I'm going to float about the kitchen looking all feminine and domestic godessy!
Actually I have to wear an apron because I'm such a messy cook (and eater)!!!
Ho hum, ... one can dream!
