Fashion powerhouse Balenciaga introduced the “Cosmetic Pantashoes” taking the thigh-high boot to a new level by creating a legging/boot hybrid.  I love the look, and it can be worn so many ways, as in the images below from The Daily Mail (article here).  While the look is sleek and very fashion forward, the price tag of $2,850 may be a little more than most of us can afford.

Elastic Wonder’s LeggingShoes™

One of my favorite designers, Idil Vice (see posts here, here and here of her rock inspired designs), has a second company called Elastic Wonder, showcasing her amazing spandex clothing line.  To expand her current line, Idil has a Kickstarter project that will offer a more affordable version of the Pantashoe called the LeggingShoes™.

In addition to the fabulous LeggingShoes™, her new Kickstarter project also features 80 fabulous solid colors of her spandex leggings and tights, as seen in the images below.  With fall just around the corner, these leggings, tights and LeggingShoes™ will brighten up any wardrobe!

There are 15 different ways to back this fantastic project, and you know I’ll also be supporting it as well.  Click the link below for the Kickstarter campaign, and check out samples of the the colors Idil will offer of the leggings and tights, including a color card of all of the colors that will be available at Elastic Wonder once we help her hit her goal!

Rainbow Tights

I was talking to a friend and fellow blogger at work (she’s linked on my blogroll under FishouttaH2O Photography), and she asked me where she can get a good pair of textured tights that are not just black.

That got me thinking…so, here are a few good places that I’ve found to prepare for the fall and winter seasons in tights that are not just your basic black:

Hue.com – One of the first names that come to mind when I think of hosiery.

Target – I always head to Target first to their hosiery and socks department for great prices and decent selection.

American Apparel – Great selection of colors in their opaque tights.

Kohls – I love the Simply Vera Wang indigo tights I bought there.  Such a subtle contrast with an all black outfit.

ASOS – They usually have a great selection of tights, but I don’t see them right now.  Check the sale selection.  I bought a great pair of burgundy tights there for only $3 (US).

Topshop – The selection at the stores is even better, but you’ll still get a great selection online.  Check out the Henry Holland House Tights!

New Look – I regret not buying every color of the tights I saw on sale when I was last in London.

DSW – They don’t have a great selection online.  But when you’re in line getting ready to check out at an actual store location, you can grab a great pair at the last-minute at racks near the registers (I included the link in case your fancy turns to shoes, like mine just did).

Navy Exchange – You have to be in the military or be related to someone in the military to shop at a store or log onto the site.  But if you get the chance to, it’s worth it.  The one that we shop at has an entire wall of hosiery.

Lori’s Shoes – Just bought my clogs there!  Great selection of shoes and hosiery, plus great customer service.
