just the thought of you makes night time bright

neon nylons and flourescent florals...




the thigh highs are vintage nylons! they have the reinforced toe and heel and everything; i got pink ones too...
i bought them unworn and in the packaging from cobblestones a few months ago and it took me this long to figure something out. (ps, now i see why garters were so important; they were slipping down all day) tiny checks dress from h&m, thrifted ugly cool shoes.

i also have a vast amount of retina-searing flouro-colored hawaiian dresses...
+ more shoes from fox&fawn (there are giant 60s-by-way-of-the-90s platforms, by 9&co! sidenote, vint 9&co is a TROVE of 60s/90s clunky chunky platforms)

Vintage Nylons were indeed nylon. Spandex wasn't invented or added to anything until I THINK the 70's? Hence the reason that Olivia Newton John's pants from the end of Grease took almost and hour to get -- they were actually SEWN onto her body.
There's a piece of trivia for ya.

I meant took an hour to get on, and that they were sewn while on her body . My bad typing skills took all the fun of my good trivia. Balls.

I'm very jealous that you're able to find neon over the knee (!) socks, they look fab!

this is great, the reinforced toe is like THE greatest invention since stripper heels. those are pretty sweet clunkers though. my thrift shoes are ugly actually ugly, hehehe.
