Tattoo Socks, Peacock Feather Stockings

Hello Swimwear and Lingerie Friends.

Happy Monday! Or is it?

The weekends have been feeling so good lately, that I’ve actually begun disliking Mondays, which is odd, because usually my weekends were so exhausting and stressful that it was a relief to get back to my regular work routine. typical human… never happy.

To cheer myself up and give me a reason to look forward to Monday mornings, I decided that a sweet little piece of luxury lingerie would be just what I needed.

I thought, since I must look professional and can’t really express my quirkier, ‘creative’ side that a hidden message was just what I needed! Introducing Tattoo Socks “Bite Me” Stockings :)

Bite Me! Fabulous in every way!

Bite Me! Fabulous in every way!

{Please pardon the watermark, but I wouldn’t dream of removing it, after all, it is her property and I am just borrowing it to highlight her fabulous designs. Nothing but admiration here!}

Ack! Aren’t they absolutely awesome? I know, right?

Here’s the product description: “Gorgeous “Bite Me” stockings with a chic gothic font and bleeding letters. Sexy thigh-high nylons.

The design is printed in black on one sock. You get one printed and one blank sock. I really like the asymmetric look, it gives more focus and attracts more attention.

I love that you can play with the design and rotate the tattoo to position it wherever you want! 40 DEN thigh high nylons.”

Now, I know they’re supposed to be for Halloween, but c’mon. That message can work in so many mediums, they shouldn’t just be relegated to holiday wear! That would be a crime against fashion and individuality!

You can find Tattoo Socks on Etsy. From their profile: “Hi, thanks for visiting our shop! We are Gabby and Tal from Tel Aviv. Gabby is a designer/illustrator and makes the socks, decals and prints. Tal is a jewelry designer/sculptor and creates the unique silver rings. All items in this shop are made with love.”

I also adore the Peacock Feather and Swirly design in the first photo at the start of this post. Ahh, who am I kidding, I think they’re all awesome. especially the “mind the gap”… that one just makes me giggle! Gabby clearly has a great and slightly naughty sense of humour!

FYI to the people at the office… just saying.

Hosiery can be a boon or battle depending or both at the same time. Who hasn’t made it to their lunch hour and already had to change their panty hose at least once? I always buy them in sets of two because I am guaranteed to shred one just in the act of putting it on. I have also perfected the complex yet necessary art of hiking up my nylons to prevent the stretched out crotch from peeking out below my hem line. Otherwise known as having a bad case of kindergarten crotch, it is incredibly difficult to maintain any dignity in a professional situation when you need to haul them back into position.

Womens stockings are made to stretch. It’s part of their appeal and the reason why they can come in such small packages. However, they can only stretch so far before losing their elasticity and drooping like the saggy skin of an aged elephant. Even fishnets lose their sex appeal when they are bunched and shapeless, you may as well be wearing compression stockings. You can either give up and just wear socks with your skirts and dresses or be brave and try a new approach.

If you really can’t find anything that doesn’t require readjusting every 10 minutes, then the best solution is thigh highs. Just avoid the issue all together. Thigh high womens stockings come in several different types to ensure proper comfort and fit. Some types have elasticized tops to keep them in place and others rely on garter belts. There really is something magical about the way the straps of a good garter belt feels on the body that you will notice an extra wiggle in your walk. Either way, you feel like Marilyn Monroe when you step out wearing them and that can only be a good thing. The best part of a garter belt is that it is designed to be combined with some seriously luxe looking lingerie and who are you to deny it the joy of matching separates?
