Stocking up for Autumn and Winter.

With the length of each day rapidly decreasing as we head towards the Autumn equinox thoughts turn to hosiery; and for lovers of vintage style fashion, to stockings. 

I am blessed to possess many sets of beautiful matching lingerie. However unless one procures ones lingerie from a specialist vintage style retailer; such as What Katie Did (www.whatkatiedid.com), suspender belts are usually of the four-strap variety…with many only suitable for the boudoir.

Personally I prefer my suspender belts to have a little more ‘substance’ and to feature either six or eight straps. 

With these thoughts in mind I turn to today’s fashion pick.

From http://www.stockingshq.com (link below *).


Stockings HQ new Classic 6-strap lace front suspender belt featuring stretch satin side panels, a lace front panel, a bow at the top of every strap, triple hook and eye fastening at the back and 2cm wide straps with metal adjusters and metal clasps. Available in white and black. Priced at £29.50. 

Also from http://www.stockingshq.com (link below **).


Stockings HQ new Classic 8-strap lace front suspender belt; like the 6-strap version, featuring stretch satin side panels, a lace front panel, a bow at the top of every strap, triple hook and eye fastening at the back and 2cm wide straps with metal adjusters and metal clasps. Available in white and black. Priced at £33.50. 

I think it is fair to say that many of us gals like our opaque hosiery.

My favourite and available from http://www.mayfairstockings.com (link below ***).


Gerbe Opaque 70 Matt Stockings; with a 70 denier appearance, and made of Tactel yarn for an incredibly soft feel. These French stockings also feature invisible reinforced toes. Priced at £22.00.

Stocking up ones hosiery draw. 

Welcome to today’s vintage style fashion pick where I have selected two pairs of stockings that I possess.

I should also like to explain a little about each pair that are quite different for a number of reasons.

Firstly from http://www.touchable.co.uk (link below *).

Genuine reciprocated heel and reinforced (RHT) toe sheer stockings featuring a deep welt and after welt with an external seam from welt to toe for extra definition. Made from 100% Nylon (and therefore non-stretch) the 15 denier construction using the sheerest of yarns specifically matched to give an appearance as stylish as fully-fashioned stockings. Priced at £12.95.

Secondly from http://www.whatkatiedid.com (link below ** and I am hoping that the colour is as sweet as it appears in the promotional photograph).

Seamed Stockings Sky Glamour H2051. 15 denier seamed nylons with a translucent champagne leg and sky blue point heel, seam and welt. Made in Italy from stretch nylon and elastane for ease of fit. Priced at £10.00.
