Fakes and Ladders

October 7, 2009

I have just got ANOTHER tear in the foot of my tights.  Now I see why American soldiers were so popular in WW2, please can someone bring me new stockings!  I am rubbish at darning holes and in serious danger of looking like Nora Batty with the mumps.

Damn this no-clothes-oath!

I would adopt the fake tan route and do away with my tights (just like the women in the war – paint those bad boys on!) BUT I would freeze my arse off.  Nora fashionista it is then!

    Hun, do you need us to buy you some tights? Surely tights don’t come into the clothing rule…they must be the exception right?! I mean – who darns tights these days?!

    I do! Buying them would be breaking the rules, BUT I’m not sure I can survive a WHOLE winter on my current supply. I have just one hole free pair left!

    Maybe I should start wearing over the knee socks instead? I just don’t want to risk looking like a spice girl in the 90s…

    Would you be allowed to accept the gift of tights, if so what colour, size denier etc!
