As I’ve mentioned before on my blog, I collect vintage stockings, but with a focus on what I call “novelty” pairs. These are stockings with unusual details such as outline heels, decor up the back of the seam or around the ankle or heel, or just anything special that your basic fully fashioned stocking wouldn’t have. I’m assuming such styles were probably only worn for special occasions and they tend to be very rare and hard to find.
By the way, I just added a categories section to my blog. So if you gaze over to the right, you should see it and if you click on the “vintage stockings” category, you’ll be able to view all of my posts featuring vintage stockings. Mind you, I have a lot more vintage stockings in
my members area. (Nov 2016 update–paysite closed June 2015)
Now onto this pair of vintage stockings! They are made by Stylace Heels and I think I have a few more pairs by that same brand. They are known for making stockings with unusual outlines around the heel.
Here’s an up close photo (well, actually a screen shot taken from the video that I wore them in–here’s a preview in this post), of the stockings being worn.
I did a quick Google search for these stockings and surprisingly, found a pair for sale over at Stocking Showcase. I also found a few pictures on flickr of another vintage stockings collector who has this same pair and many others that you might enjoy looking at. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has an appreciation for such rare and unique styles! 😉
