And back into Gabriella we go, with another piece from the students at Lodz. I gotta say these are some proper quirky designs you know!
Keeping it simple for work I opted for my black lace dress paired with my suede court shoes to really emphasise the tights.
I kept my hair up in a ponytail and wore subtle jewellery.
From The Website: Lippy Fun Modern Design Black Sheer Tights New Spring Collection By Gabriella. Gorgeous Fun Lipstick and words design on legs. These are lovely sheer tights which are part of the new spring collection from Gabriella will let your inner child and geek out. These tights are also highwasted and the fabric hugs your body, letting any woman feel sexy.
The Packaging: the front of the packaging is once again monochrome with the design highlighted. Moving onto the back, these have the sizing guide, hosiery care and the following stated:
“Exclusive fancy tights manufactured from Lycra fibres double braided with polyamide. Without marked panties part, with cotton gusset, sewed with flat seam.”
Once you get into the packaging, you can see them flat packed ready to roll on.
Getting Them On: I got my silky hosiery gloves on ready to go with these seeing as my last pair were a bit dud like. I managed to get these to sit where I wanted them to on my ankle and up the legs they go lining the stars up at the back. I tried to do it like the model did but somehow it wasn’t working out for me!
These were fine going over anklets, but I will mention that you do need to be careful as they did feel quite rough to touch – which means snags could occur.
On The Legs: so these have been a little better than the Cacti ones I did yesterday in terms of snagging, but I managed to get a few rips instead… I don’t even know what’s worse right not!
The denier is great for simple leg coverage to make the design on the ankle stand out. I think 20 works well; it helps to emphasise the design on the back and front of the legs.
The fit of them are great; no complaints about any gapping on the legs or the hosiery falling down. The feel of them are so soft and smooth on the legs; a real nice finish on these for sure!
The design is pretty funky but I wish you could wear them backwards so you can chop and change without it looking silly. I thought about it but then realised that it would be weird if the writing was at the back of them!
The quality I gotta say is still poor in my eyes now; these managed to get 2 small holes in them instead of a million snags!
The Toes & Ankle: so not too sure if these are reinforced but I am hoping that they are! As you can see they are fully sheer around the feet and toes, working up to the ankle design. These have plenty of wiggle room in them as well which is always a bonus! Around the ankles, these fit real nice and throughout the day, there is no sign of wrinkles.
Not too sure if I’m feeling the lipstick design here you know!
The Waistband & Gusset: a great band here! These sit around belly button level on me, they hold up so well throughout the day and have plenty of stretch in them too! These lasted well throughout the day; didn’t loosen at any point and stayed snag-free unlike my other pair!
Not too sure if I’m feeling the design now once I got them on my legs. I liked it at first, but then I realised that you can’t really wear them backwards so the ‘Oh Yeah’ is at the back with the stars at the front.
