Fashion Friday. . .Hosiery
I am a tights kind of girl. Although my very first "real" job was across the street from Strawbridge and Clothier in Philadelphia, and I knew exactly where the fitting room was, closest to the hosiery department, for those weekly runs and snags. When the 90s came and went and I didn't have to wear suits everyday to work - I stopped worrying about hosiery.
Except for special occasions. . .since I am a woman of a certain age (wink) I am not really comfortable with bare legs in a dressy situation. Personally, I think bare legs scream casual for everybody, but I could be a tad bit old fashioned.
Today, I found myself helping a friend find hosiery for an event she's attending this weekend. Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Talbot's and Soma all let us down.
We went to Macy's - figuring a department store should have a good selection. They had an okay selection. . .but seriously. . .have you shopped for hosiery lately?

Seriously you need a guide to find what you want, and then a color chart to find the right color. When did it get so difficult?
I know choices are good. . .but it truly did seem like bin after bin of almost exactly the same thing.
Luckily my friend found her hosiery of choice in a good color.
Are you a hosiery wearer? What brand are your favorite?
