Another vintage stockings post, as I’ve been meaning to post these pics for awhile now.
I’m not sure if the stockings were in the correct box as there is no mention of the style “Novelty Jewels” on the outside.
Style: Enchanted Color: French Nude (Stocking) Size: 9.5
Jewels I found on My carpet the day after….
I’d say these were from the 1950’s, maybe 1960’s. I wore them in My “Jeweled Calves” video:
I actually don’t buy vintage stockings anymore, I’m just going through My collection and wearing the ones I have. I’ve said this in My clips before, but I find that vintage stockings tend to be too short in the length for My tastes, which is why I always wear them with long leg panty girdles. However, I do like the FIT of vintage stockings as they fit tighter to the leg (read: no stretch) than modern made FF stockings.
Although it’s rare that I post any pictures publicly anymore, I’ll still post pictures of vintage stockings and packaging from My personal collection.
“Continental Cafe” was the name of the color. I love the fancy names that vintage stocking companies dreamt up. Like Spicy or Smokey Mountain Haze or Serenade.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a date on a box of stockings before. I don’t think the stockings are that old, probably from the 1950’s would be My guess.
So the ‘gimmick’ with these stockings was that they were “Ever so faintly scented” (perfumed), but it was so faint that I didn’t smell anything. lol Well I couldn’t differentiate between “is this perfume or just musty 60+ year old stocking smell”.
A signature detail of vintage stockings, the welt imprint.
I wore these in My “Lower Leg Appreciation” clip:
The stockings do have a nice, darker outline along the heel and foot reinforcement and a rather unusual “bump/notch” along the side of the heel. Which you can see much better in the clip, of course.
A quick Google image search and there are some neat old advertisements for Northmont stockings to be found.
Unless you are new here (which if that’s the case, you should read through My entire blog), you know that I collect fancy vintage stockings. Fancy meaning that they have some unique details on them that set them apart from a plain pair of Full Fashioned (or RHT) stockings.
This particular pair has ZEBRA heels!
I always like to document the neat vintage packaging that My stockings come in and since I didn’t do that in the video, I’m posting pics here. Just for MY personal reference of My stocking collection and to share with other like-minded people who appreciate stockings from 50+ years ago!
I’m not sure exactly what was ‘irregular’ about these stockings as I didn’t find anything wrong with them.
These were pristine in the box and I have THREE pairs of them!! 🙂 Do you have ANY idea how rare this style is?? (Very).
What they look like on…. (the white slingbacks make My feet look so tiny!)
I wore them with one of My vintage nightgowns that I got rid of. I wore it a few years ago in THIS clip as well. As I said before, I need to cull My collection of stuff.
They don’t make lingerie like they used to…..
I wore a pair of vintage seamless stockings in a recent video shoot and I snapped off a few photos of the stocking packaging before hand.
I just love all of those little details because I feel it makes the stockings even more special.
Below is the tag on the Panti-Slip that I’ll be wearing in Sunday’s video update.
I found this vintage ad for the slip:
“It’s a panty, half-slip and tummy controlling garter belt all-in-one!”
And a piccy from an outtake from Sunday’s video…
Trying to let My hair partially air dry more lately and it get’s all wavy, crazy.
