I ♥ Tabio












210 dernier black tights 110 dernier opaque tights in black, navy & charcoal grey ❖ sheer heart tights sheer polka tights black wool over knee socks ❖ Top Shop pink suede shoes ❖ Blueinc dress

I thought it about time that I dedicate a whole post to my love of Tabio. I am sadly not blessed in the good leg department and so finding a brand of tights and socks to flatter is a god send. As a big dress wearer, it is imperative to find a range that stocks every kind of legwear I could possibly want. I wear tights pretty much every day of my life so I need a lot of variety to go with my different outfits.

Here is a selection I have acquired over the last month or so, I am especially taken with the heart and polka tights which are so popular right now. The standard 110 dernier I have worn for the last couple of years and despite being on rotation for that length of time are as good now as they were when I bought them. So although the tights are perhaps slightly above average in price, they really do last a long time without snagging.

I have provided links to each pair, in case you choose to invest in some for yourself . I'm sure you'll be seeing plenty more of mine on here over the coming months.

I love the heart tights and the nude fishnets because they seem to be quite hard to find elsewhere. I think some of the over the knee socks will be my next buy from there.

such lovely, lovely tights! oh yes, i agree to the polka dots and the heart shapes - too pretty to resist ay.

i love the idea and design of tights but i've never really worn them. i guess i just can't seem myself in them, hehe. plus, where i live is really hot and humid most of the time, so yupp.

but love the tights! definitely a great choice, hun! and thanks for sharing. xx

I really want to get those tights with the little hearts for the next spring! Do you always order them online?

I bought a black one with a big pattern at Primark the other day. Thought it might look good with a plain black dress, but I haven't tried it yet.

Oh, and I love those pink shoes!

I am equally as in love with Tabio! I found in in london years ago and got the cutest footy socks, but for some reason I could never remember the name of the company. I searched and searched but the mystery wasn't solved until their new store popped up on my street in my street in Paris!
