You Can “Stop and Stare” – A Collaboration with Company -My Stockings



Hello Ladies!

I don’t know if you did this, but as I kid, I remember saying, “take a picture, it lasts longer” if someone was staring at me. Kind of funny, given writing and posing for a fashion blog now, isn’t it? Well, I am giving permission for one to stare just a bit longer, when it comes to these delightful, creative and very soft stockings sold by retailer UK Company, My Stockings.   The material is manufactured in Italy and the designs are hand-printed in Ireland The line is called, “Stop and Stare” and it certainly is a fun way to go about having a tattoo, without the ink or pain!

I will tell you something about me you didn’t know. First, I love watching “Ink Master”, a show highlighting some of the best tattoo artists in the country.  I find it to be an art form, as shading, composition, balance and other topics are explored. I thought, wouldn’t it be cool to get a red headed pinup girl playing a jazz guitar  tattooed on my arm someday? ( a play jazz guitar/red hair) However, the reality is, with a connective tissue disease, and easy bruising, it is not advised.

So, What am I getting at? These stockings are just fun! Today my first one styled are red poppies, and I have always been a fan of the flower, so it was an easy choice. The second I was sent, were the black orchids, and last I was sent a pair of ” Hold Ups” also known as thigh highs, which I will not be modeling on the blog, but sharing a picture today. I love all 3 of these, as they feel like silk. The color of the tattoo is saturated, and another great feature, will not fade! The Ballerina Brand, are very lovely with red scroll design and black lace at the top. I just want to impart that they are very comfortable and soft, long enough and fun to wear. If they ever do create a red-headed pinup girl playing jazz guitar on the stockings, I will be the first to buy! Check out the Ballerina Line HERE, and Stop and Stare HERE. I took out my LRD and would wear this for a night out on the town.

From the company, All our tights are 10% off with the code TS10 is used at the checkout. 
Shipping rates have been reduced and if order exceeds £75 overseas shipping costs are on us.



You have seen this Bandage dress before, and I have styled it differently today with the rich red danging earrings from Jewel Box, my favorite red floral jagged necklace, and Coach black bow pumps. I would wear this on a date night, an evening out for fun.

Outfit: Bandage dress c/o The Kewl Shop, Coach Shoes, Sole Society Necklace ( last yr) Stop and Stare Stockings c/o My Stockings Red Poppies, Black Orchid, Ballerina hold ups.

Have a Great Weekend!

    My mom used to mail me stockings with subtle patterns on. This pair is quite the statement maker.
    The red dress looks stunning on you, Jess.

    these are so dramatic and pretty! The dress is so sleek and the stockings add the va-voom! The gorgeous mane of red hair and long legs does not hurt either. No real ink, doctor’s orders!

    It is great to see this red dress again Jess. You are stunning in it!
    Those tights are great fun.
    I had various things pierced when I was younger knowing that when I got fed up I could remove them BUT I was always too much of a mind-changer to get a tattoo. I knew I would end up hating it 5 years down the line.
    A great look!

      Thank you Sam! I couldnt remember if you saw this first time round, glad you like it. It is fun to wear. The stockings are fun! I know what you mean, even if I could, I would have probably chickened out.

    Loved your pictures! I agree, taking a picture makes the moment “permanent”, and I like it lasts longer! I loved the tights, I like that it can give an instant tattoo!

    Love this idea—I really like the colorful ones a little better than just the black “tattoo”!
    What a great concept!!
