Weekly Vibe #173

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #173! Last weekend I had a very unique experience, I was invited by an Russian Orthodox Priest(well he is Ukrainian actually) to an Orthodox Liturgy and wow it was really quite eye-opening, I mean yes I am a Christian but this is something I've never experienced before, and yes I have been to Catholic churches but this is really different and I actually kinda liked it too!




It was pretty refreshing!

Oh and no I didn't wear tights because I was told to wear long pants and all of the men were in long pants! Whew!

A small update on Tightsplease and MyTights if you remember about the shutting down of these 2 online hosiery shops, UK Tights have officially as of the 26th of April 2016 signed for the ownership of the domains of Tightsplease.co.uk and MyTights.com and this move has ensured that now UK Tights is now the largest retailer in terms of stock holdings, size and seniority and business generated. We congratulate Dawn on this move and wish for great collaborations ahead of us! You can read more about it from the Underlines Magazine!

If you are fan of Pierre Mantoux's Veloutine or looking to try something a different Pierre Mantoux product you are in a treat! UK Tights is having a special 15% discount code for the series!



UK Tights is also having a special price deal for their Wolford Sheer 15 Tights and Knee Highs, for the price of 2 pairs you actually get 3 pairs!




Spring is here!! I think at least it probably came a little late for countries in the Western hemisphere! But who cares! Everyone loves Spring sale with UK Tights because it's up 80% off over 200 products! Check them out! The cheapest of tights go at 2.99 GBP!


Well that's all I have for you! Have a blessed week ahead and happy shopping!!

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #172

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #172! Sorry for the super late update! For the past few days I have been working out on a collaboration project with Giulia and I will be updating about it as soon as I get my replies from them!



If you are not acquainted about them, Giulia is a Ukrainian based hosiery company and our friends from UK Tights do stock some of their products



The temperature here in Singapore is getting higher and higher, last week was peaking at 35 degrees celsius in the afternoon and not to mention that Singapore's humidity level is really high and it really puts me in the condition where I would only wear hosiery when the sunsets and if it's in the day I'd find myself in an air-conditioned environment. Ugh.. I really missed the nice cool temperature back in Taiwan and I have to find myself to go back there again soon!

If you are fan of Kunert Fresh Up 10 sheers you can get them at a good promotion from UK Tights!


Buy one pair and get the 2nd pair at half the price! 

Well that's all I have for you, if you live in Singapore please do drink more water!!

Thanks for reading!

Outfit of the Week #127

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #127! And this week we will be looking at this outfit!


Source: Cy Choi

This outfit was designed by Cy Choi and featured in Cy Choi SS 15, at first glance one can see the interesting use of using orange as to stand out from the outfit, an orange armband, orange leg stripes on the shorts, white jacket, white sweater pull over with a greyscale pattern and a white shirt as base layer, coupled with black opaques tights(apparently footed) and black sneakers. Other minor details are the piercings and his finger accessory. In fact if you actually looked into Cy Choi's SS 15 collection you'd find 90% of his outfits had models wearing black tights and the outfits are amazing cool too! I really like what Cy Choi has and it's quite in line with what I usually do myself.


What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

And also via Amazon.jp recommended a few products such as:

Japanese made Smoofit Tights








The website also goes to make a mention about Polka dot tights

Outfit of the Week #126

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Outfit of the Week #126! This week we will be looking at this outfit!






An outfit by Seo Byungmun 

Reading about Seo Byungmun, you would find a description that describes:

"Seo Byungmun is a visually provocative menswear ready-to-wear line. It's display an unconventional construction that often plays with creative pattern." 


And rightfully so, if you have checked out Seo's other line of threads you would see very evidently why it's described so. Some designs are Avant-garde and some can be for daily use. 

In the outfit featured here you can see many of this unconventional elements here, a glowy blurred digitised colour pattern long-sleeved top, an unconventionally patterned and material made shorts with some reflective material and likely to be a stiff material looking at how straight it is, the coat in the 2nd photo features a PVC like trenchcoat length zip-up sweater in a unique light stone blue. The legs complimented with black cotton-look tights and a neat looking front zip up high cut leather sneakers. 

Nice look altogether, good way to try different shades of blue and with some glitter as well. What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Weekly Vibe #170

Hi Creative and Fashionable people!

Welcome to Weekly Vibe #170! Finally my lacrosse gloves have arrived!!! I have been so short of finger protection as I was doing my own saber training sessions with my friends and my fingers are always taking a lot of beating in our dueling sessions!




I was pretty late for this post as I got a pretty bad cut on my thumb and it hindered me quite a fair bit and affected my mood as well but it's getting better so here I am writing. Anyways reading through my email I found out a terrible news from StockingsHQ and here it goes..


Sadly Tightsplease, MyTights and alexblake are no more, I still remember Tightsplease sent me my very first pair of tights for winning the Mantyhose retweet post.. :( And I thought it was just Singaporean retail industry was doing horrible even online hosiery businesses are badly affected.. the last business I would want to see fold is UK Tights which is really a good friend for me at least! 

Well anyways moving ahead with better news Pretty Polly and Aristoc have new products and UK Tights has them stocked up!



Well that's all I have for you this week! Have a great week ahead! 

Thanks for reading!
