giveaway

Thanks to Tights please, i have one beautiful pair of purple two-tone stockings to giveaway!
Tightsplease is the UK home of wonderful hosiery - from brown stockings to seamed stockings and everything inbetween...
I'd love to find some stockings covered in a print of black cats one day. Or even better, i'd love to design stocking patterns myself! (well, lately i've been dreaming of working on a capsule collection of clothes made from textiles i've designed ...but more on that later...)

Seeing as seamed stockings are one of my obsessions, i couldn't help but draw two pairs of fancy legs and the purple stockings that are up for grabs.
Please leave a comment below to be eligible, - a winner will be chosen by random next monday the 13th.





p.s. A nice tip: if you get a hole in your stockings, dab at the outer edges of the damage with clear nailpolish and once it has dried it will stop the fabric from running and getting worse.

  1. A capule collection? That sounds mighty cool, Ms. Shearer :)

    I've never owed two-toned tights before so I would love to be entered into this neat giveaway.

  4. I will remember that tip till next time I'll wear stockings and some cat wants to play. That will probably be tomorrow.

  5. I always use the nail varnish trick too. And also when you have to all embarassing trying-to-do-the-splits-and-your-tights-rip situation. I just cut off the legs and use them as stocking or long socks. It's best to nail polish the edge of them too.
    I really love these painting of tights. I now want some with that watercoloured effect!

  6. These are beautiful. I'd be keen for those matching purple knickers you've got up there too! They'd make a nice change from the diet of black opaques my legs are living in.

  12. When you did the collaboration with a designer a while back, I was so enamored by the results! If you had your own line with your illustrations on it, I'm sure it'd be gorgeous. And thank you for the nail polish tip! I always get runs in my tights! Feels like such a waste!!

  20. Oh hooray, I quite love two-toned stockings! I actually have a pair from American Apparel but those are.. like with each of the legs having a different colour? Haha hm there's probably a better way to describe it but I'm sure you understand. Anyway, go purple!
