Back in the day, whenever you would wear tights or stockings with seam lines, girls used to help each other to make sure their seams were straight. So I messed around with the idea and created an image for my theme of the day:
My friend Elsa sent me a link where you can buy amazing tights: www.upfactory.com
I also found out another great website….. but that I’ll keep for later, hehehe
I want to keep you on your toes. Here is some pictures of what you can find.

Having been seeing a lot of swing girls at events wearing embellished stockings (remember Katie Anderson’s floral patterned stockings here?), I was delighted to stumble across Scottish company Bebaroque. I love the sailor blue pinup prints on opaque white tights!
They also have these cute opaque tights with bows – yes, the bows are on the tights, not the shoes:
Katie Anderson (USA) busted out these studded Top Shop shoes with those gorgeous floral patterned stockings, in Como Italy on the weekend for Swing Crash Festival 2009. Everyone was asking, “Are those tattoos?” Incidentally, when not globetrotting with Minn Vo as a Lindy Hop instructor, Katie is a shoe designer in LA.
Katie also showed up in some pretty gorgeous head gear over the weekend, including this giant black satin bow mounted on an alice band (Forever 21), which she had pinned down to look like a vintage hat, and a red velvet rose set against her platinum blonde hair. Fantastico!
