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.

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