Earth Day

Your tights may be all nice now.
But they can quickly go into holes
So help the earth and re-cycle them

Recycle your tights with No nonsense on Earth Day. The program re-purposes the nylon/spandex blend found in many tights, and turns them into park benches, running tracks, car insulation, and playground equipment. Visit Nononsense.com/recycle to download a mailing label, box up your used tights and pantyhose (all brands accepted), and bring them to your nearest shipping location.

Don't want to go all the way like VB?

Yesterday Joy of Tights reported that Victoria Beckham had been seen breaking all the rules by wearing tights with well, sandals.

If you don't want to go that far, why not try some sexy peep toe shoes with your tights?
In case you don't know:
"A peep-toe shoe is a woman's shoe (usually a pump, slingback, bootie, or any other dress shoe) in which there is an opening at the toe-box which allows the toes to show.  Peep-toe shoes were popular beginning in the 1940s but disappeared by the 1960s. Peep-toe shoes had a brief resurgence in the 1970s/80s, before falling out of fashion by the mid-1990s.  More recently, they have enjoyed some popularity again, with variations such as "peep-toe boots" appearing."
Great for parties:
 Good for going about town:
Although maybe not for the country.
Nice peep toe boots though.
And peep toes with tights are good for all ages
Remember, once you go the whole way and break the taboo of wearing full open shoes ("sandals" even) with your tights:
There is no telling what other taboos you might break.

Posh(,) Tights and Sandals

While most people would avoid teaming tights with open-toed shoes where possible, Victoria Beckham made a point of wearing exactly that when she browsed what Paris' stores had to offer on last Thursday.

Dainty, open-toed sandals with her thick tights. Fashion no-no? Maybe if you follow an outdated rulebook.
Chalk this one up as another fashion high-note for VB.

Could we all follow VBs example?
When in Paris, so as Posh does?
Or almost - opaques rather than woollies.
More Posh Paris Fashion
A little more patterned than Posh

But should you be even more radical than Posh?
Black tights, white sandals.  Just the thing to dance around your (white) handbag
How about bright blue tights with open shoes?
Or a nice yellow with suspender effect.
But these next ones are probably beyond the pale - although not in the option of JoT.
Sheer but at least with a sandal toe
Sheer but with a reinforced toe - is that the sound of a fainting fashionista I hear?

Saint David's Tights

Today is Saint David's Day.  So we are going to look at St David's tights.  Well not St David's tights as such, but Welsh tights.
These tights were apparently still there when the snow had gone.  The staying power of tights.
OK, perhaps you don't want to see Welsh tights as such, but more tights being warn by girls in Wales.

Cara forgets where to wear her tights

On made her way home last Thursday, model Cara Delevingne appeared to be wearing your everyday pair of black tights on her head.   The sighting came just after she was seen singing for a US ambassador alongside Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
For those of you who are wonder "Who the hell is Cara Delevingne"  (Like you've been living on the moon). I'll sprinkle a few CaraFacts through this post.

Well here is a little reminder for Cara - tights go on your legs
 
CaraFact: Cara was born in London, England, the daughter of Pandora (née Stevens) and Charles Hamar Delevingne, a property developer.  You would think such a well brought up girl would know where to wear her tights.

Oh yes, and you can wear tights with a few more clothes
And even outside

CaraFact: She attended Bedales School in Hampshire, United Kingdom.  Bedales continues to be one of the most expensive public schools in the UK. For the school year 2012/2013, boarders' fees are £10,310 per term.  All that money and they still didn't teach her where to wear her tights.  We even learnt that at my comprehensive

Now Cara looks good in almost everything
Even socks and heels.....
CaraFact: On the eve of her runway debut, Cara Delevingne opted for a McDonald's lunch and pizza dinner.  As you can see above it didn't affect her looks.  But are Mcey Ds good memory food to help you to remember where to wear your tights


 CaraFact: She needs a lot of librication (She revealed that the underwear items she modelled at the Victoria's Secret show were difficult to wear, because they were made from latex. 'I’m wearing a lot of latex, so it’s going to be interesting. I’m going to be lubed up to the max. I’m going to be basically sliding around in them.)
...or even ripped stockings
 But probably not with tights on her head.

CaraFact: She is the younger sister of model Poppy Delevingne.  You would have thought Poppy would have shown Cara where to wear her tights.

In fact Joy of Tights has found evidence that Cara does know where to wear tights
Tights less ordinary
Nice shoe collection
CaraFact: In 2013 Cara was shot by artist and photographer Karl Lagerfeld, for the Winter 2013 edition Melissa Magazine.(The in-house publication of Brazilian jelly-shoe giant Melissa)
CaraFacts
The kind you guys like yo know
    Height: 5' 9.5" / 176.53cm
    Bust: 31" A
    Waist: 24" / 60.96 cm
    Hips: 34" / 86.36 cm
    Shoes: UK 6 / EUR 39
    Dress Size(uk): UK 6 / EUR 34
    Hair: Blonde Light
    Length: Long
    Eyes: Green


Don't you ever consider a girl's personality?  Silly question

 But Cara has been seen wearing tights when not doing a photo-shoot
Tights more ordinary
In fact, overall, Cara has been a good abassador of the cause of tights

Except for one thing
Not trying tights with open toe shoes

Give it a try Cara; its not so bad.
Although some might think differently
 Perhaps Cara was having a senile moment

We hope not
Although even those of us of a more mature age manage get our tights on our legs
Perhaps Cara was experimenting with Pantyhose Encasement
That strange fetish which, by male, logic says
  • If a woman looks good in a pair of tights
  • then she will look even better in 5 pairs
  • QED
 Or
  • If a woman looks good with a pair of tights on her legs
  • then she looks even better with a pair over her head too
  • Simples (and these guys are)
Surely one pair of tights is enough for anyone
Clearly not
Its a form of depersonalisation
But if you are depersonalised it will be easier to accidentially on purpose to beat the guy to death for during a bondage session.
