December 21, 2012

By Cristina Casiano-King

Its begining to look a lot like Christmas. As the Holiday Season is about to begin, there will be no shortage of sparkly tops and festive sweater vests. All that will be left to find will be is someone to kiss under the mistletoe.

Balancing the Sparkle in your holiday outfit can be tricky, you don’t want to end up looking like the glitter fairy threw up all over you.

For the Edgy Christmas Carol session try a pair of Dominatrix Style Tights. The lace up boot effect gives your little black dress both a naughty and nice effect. But, these won’t feel like you are stepping out of a Charles Dickens Novel. For a little extra add a little leather … Read more

Slither Around In Snakeskin Legs

November 11, 2012

By Cristina Casciano-King

With all the recent crazy weather we have faced, wouldn’t it be nice to show a little skin. Snake Skin Leggings are a hot trend in legwear! They feel a little bit rock n roll mixed with a classic animal print pattern.

This legwear trend comes in leggings, tights and even socks!! Snake skin isn’t just for the eighties music videos you can wear them to stroll the farmers market on the weekends.

The Hue Lacquered Snake Skin Leggings are an easy wear you won’t need to cover your bum while wearing these. The slight sheen and glossiness makes these cool leggings an easy transition from day look to late night.

The Gaetano Cazzola Snake Skin Footless Tights are a bit more … Read more

Got Polka Dots?

October 17, 2012

By Cristina Casciano-King

It seems that every season leg wear everywhere are covered in Polka Dots. Whether they are teeny weeny ( Polka dot Bikini style! ) or extra large- season after season polka dots are the safe pattern for all.

The Dot craze bubbled up again with Falke in Fall 2011- they held strong through Spring and did so well that as Fall arrives Dots are now a permanent fixture of the Falke basics collection. So there is no sign of this trend’s bubble bursting.

Another brand that burst on the scene with Dots last fall was Commando, with their signature dig free waistband which my sister says is like “wearing a hug”  Commando’s JUMBO dots became the comfortable and creative way to wear … Read more

Ripped Tights Are OUT! Finally.

September 6, 2012

By Cristina Casciano-King

The Ripped Tight Trend-is it over yet?

With Lady Like Lux coming into vogue this fall, has the ripped tights trend finally founds its proper place on the trash heap of tights also ran? The past few season pre-ripped tights have been seen in various collections from Jonathan Aston to Pretty Polly and of course Leg Avenue. This trend could be easily maintained without even looking for the major brands.

Often when I would see people prancing around in this style, I would be compelled to hand them a card and tell them to come by my shop. Then when the big brands started manufacturing their “seamed” to be no end in sight for this trashy style.

I like how this look … Read more

With all the Olympic Hoopla dying down in merry Olde England.-One thing is still as hot as Micheal Phelps-The Faux Garter Look or as they say in England the Suspender Tight. This simple style takes a normal looking tight and adds a certain sauciness to it, by giving the illusion of garters clasping the stocking in place.

A trend that emerged about 2 years ago from The Pretty Polly Brand has transformed the Legwear trends again this fall. The “Super Suspender” Tight from the House of Holland for Pretty Polly took the trend to a whole new level…The uniqueness of the of this style has
