open%20toe%20stockings.bmpLadies, I feel it is now time to tell you about my addiction to tights. All winter I was practically surgically attached to them, wearing them constantly either with shorts or skirts. If I can get away with it, i.e. am not wearing open-toe shoes or flip flop style sandals, and nobody is likely to be examining my legs too closely, I also sometimes wear them in the summer months. This is partly to look like I actually have a bit of a tan, and partly because I have a bit of an obsession that they make my legs look much slimmer - although sadly I fear I am in denial about this...

Marks and Spencer are now selling these open-toe tights for £4.00 in natural tan or nude, which would seem to solve the main problem of wearing tights with popular summer shoe styles. Sadly, when I experimented the look on myself I resembled a snake shedding its skin - an unpleasant image and a particularly dodgy look! However, if you're more concerned about keeping cool in the hot weather they are better for that purpose - crafted from a revolutionary Japanese yarn, the design releases a cooling sensation to your legs as you wear them. Have you tried them, and what do you think?
