My objective is to flood the "What Rules!" column with cool stuff, and eventually have the number of posts in that column equal the ones in the you-know-what column...
Well, if you know anything about me, then you know that I love clothes, jewelery, and books. In reverse order of preference. More specifically, I love stockings: stockings with garters, pantyhose, thigh highs, and knee socks. But mostly pantyhose. A very close 'friend' of mine doesn't understand what I see in pantyhose, and he only prefers....(no not Hanes), he prefers Victoria's Secret thigh highs with lace at the top, or stockings with garters.
Me? I absolutely adore the creative and sexy pantyhose offered by Calzetrasparenze. What rules even more, is that every single one of their 'stock' photographs is of a young lady wearing pantyhose, strategically placed next to: Stacks of old, dusty musty books. The 'Baudelaire', 'Bergerac', and 'Sartre' are just so.....restraining. I meant to say, I need self-restraint. Be still my beating heart. If I were a dude who loved books and women equally this would now replace the Victoria's Secret catalog in the bathroom. As it is, I fantasize about owning the stockings, and modeling them myself next to my own 'stacks of books' for a very special friend. Only.
But really, whoever came up with that marketing idea, was freakin' brilliant! Brilliant I say! The 'quality' stockings should be purchasd in 'quantity', says my consumerist heart. The other side of me says: "Stop, there are plenty of pantyhose to go around."
Additionally, as far as product 'quality', these stockings rule! Only one pair of the ones I bought in Italy in 2002 has experienced a run yet. I love these stockings. Love them. I have my eye on a few, but alas....they are but a 'pipe dream' (or stem dream) for now...I saw a few last year that made me drool. Now, the 2005-2006 collection is here, and they are just spectacular. I'm soothing the savage beast by wearing a pair of the ones I do have today. Yay for pantyhose!
My mind is made up...not like my bed, which is a mess.
