Miss Smarty Pants this morning, only because I have not worn this tunic in so long and it’s a gorgeous colour to pair with black tights. I added simple black court shoes to finish the look, and make those legs look elongated!

The Review

The Packaging

Getting Them On: you best believe that I took my time this morning to line up this studded seam I am showcasing today. I didn’t want it going wonky. I had to slowly scrunch and roll, making sure I take my time rolling them up so I didn’t have to go back and set them in place after.

On The Legs: oh my god I am in love. I absolutely love this brand, purely because you know you are working with craftsmanship and it’s a pair I know will last me a good while. I love how opaque they are on the legs, making those gold studs really stand out. What I do love about the studs is that they are stuck on well; I gave them a tug and a pull with my nails and not once did I see it pull away from the tights. Another great thing about these is that the studs aren’t scratched or damaged at all, and stay that way as well.

The quality is just beautiful; I love this brand for this reason because they last so well. I love that they don’t damage easily, they are so comfortable to be in all day and I don’t have to worry at all.

The fit of these are true to size, and have plenty of elasticity to them. I would advise going a size up if you are in-between sizes, as I felt this had enough stretch for my legs size only. These also sit flush on the legs, with no gapping behind the knees or around the ankles.

The feel of these are just stunning; they are soft, they are smooth and they feel incredible. My legs felt caressed in the colder weather, and not once did it irritate my skin. I really loved being in them today.

The Toes & Ankle: I don’t think these come with reinforced toes to them, which is not too bad as I am working with a thicker denier, so it isn’t pone to ripping so easily. Of course it helps to have them regardless.

Around the toes, I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear. Around the feet and ankles, I had a lovely smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: these come with a standard waistband, which is quite slim and sits on the waist with ease. These don’t roll down or shimmy down the waist either, which helps!

I had plenty of stretch in the waistband, which didn’t lose elasticity during my wear either.

My Thoughts?

A pair I recommend for sure! I absolutely love the quality, the fit, the feel and most of all – the look! It’s something super different, and I really loved being in them.
