Tights On Tap

Miu Miu Socks?
Guess how much these socks cost? Read More »

As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people just like us. Pique is a new online service that sends you new tights each month. You fill out a simple style survey and can begin receiving hosiery in the mail immediately. My first month, I received a smashing pair of fishnet tights and a darling set of fishnet sock stockings. Because you can never have too many tip top tights, if you ask me. [$34,83, Pique]

Someone’s got a fetish and hasn’t found an appropriate outlet for it yet! Over the course of a 53-day period in 2010, a gentleman named Rip Alan Swartz made 6,575 calls — maxing out at 432 on one particular September day — trying to get women to chat about pantyhose. His failproof tactic? Swartz would dial businesses and begin to politely discuss the weather before redirecting the conversation to questions and comments about pantyhose. You know, natural conversational flow.

Lace Toe Socks: Another Way To Tease The Foot Fetishist In Your Life

Half Pretties photo

Here’s yet another way to hide your ugly toes — or drive the foot fetishist in your life extra-bonkers: Half-Pretties half-foot lace stockings. Basically, Half-Pretties cover your toes so that French lace peeks out of the top of your shoes. It’s pretty, sort of.  I don’t know if it’s $24.50-pretty, though.

For The Woman Whose Knees Need Accessorizing, CherrieCherrie

Tired of boring, unaccessorized knees? Sick of naked kneecaps? Dying for a way to make your knees speak volumes? Well, worry and wonder no more, for CherrieCherrie knee accessories are here, and “now your knees can talk!” (Oh, but what will they say?) If you’re familiar with garters, you get the idea. Back in ye olde days, garters were worn below the knee, not the thigh, and CherrieCherries are the same. They come in a variety of styles, and stockings aren’t required. Would we wear them? Our knees plead the Fifth. [NOTCOUTURE] Keep reading »

Get More Followers With These Twitter-Themed Socks

Are you on Twitter and looking for more followers? Take your tweet campaign to the streets with these “Follow Me” knee-high socks created by Tel Aviv design team Gabby and Tal. With this Twitter faux tattoo, the invite and bird will encourage prospective followers to add you to their list. Of course, it’s also possible you’ll draw some attention from suitors who think you’re in the market for a stalker, not a Twitter groupie. But that’s a fashionista risk you’ll have to take.

You Know You Want Me

Hey. You. Yeah, you. The guy at the other end of the bar. The tall, dark, handsome fellow. Holding your sunglasses. Sporting that black jacket. The white shirt. The day-old stubble. AND THE LATEX STOCKINGS WITH MATCHING THONG AND GARTERS. I was trolling the internet when I encountered this fellow. He’s really … something, isn’t he? I don’t even know what to say about him. Or what I would say to him if I met him in a bar. “I like your … pumps?” As Tim Gunn would say: “That’s a lotta look.” And, indeed, it is. Between the meggings, the male polish, and the bros, I know I’m starting to feel a little confused about 21st century gender roles. Well, at least if my stilettos disappear, I’ll know who nicked them. [Simon O.] Keep reading »

Would You Rock Chainmail Stockings?

Chainmail stockings, anyone? This outrageous, avant-garde leg-wear was created by Queens-based fashion designer and stylist LaQuan Smith, who is all of 20 years old and designs a line called LaQueue. Honestly, I’m not totally sure what these stockings are made out of or how they work exactly (I mean, how do they stay up, for starters, metal garters?), but I do know they’re mighty cool, and they sure look like they’re run-proof. Love them with the matchy-matchy shoes, but if you really wanted to take the modern-day postfeminist gladiator look to the gold hilt, you could pair them with the gold metal dress that matches. So, would you rock them? [Paint it Noir] Keep reading »
