Postcard from Paris: Dore Dore Stockings

Postcard from Paris: Dore Dore Stockings

One trend that I repeatedly saw in pairs was stockings. Shocker! the French have always been a been manufacturer of hose, but they are also famed from throwing stocking to the side and wearing bare legs.
Many younger girls wore stocking with their cut-off jean shorts and flat sneakers- i.e. Converse. Twenty and thirty somethings wear dark stockings with their boots and ballet flats. Generally the color of the stocking matched the color of the boot.
I must admit, as warm as it was, stocking classed up short cutoff denim and mini-dresses. I almost never saw any outfit more than one or two inches above the knee that was not accompanied by a stocking, unless it was a young child. I recently  wore a dress to work and felt almost naked after seeing a week’s worth of mini-dresses accompanied by stockings.

One smartly dressed individual  that I came across was a young woman in her late twenties wearing a polo, red V-neck pullover and navy blue short shorts. She wore sheer stockings with a slight shimmer,  a la Pippa,  and  70’s style sandals. The best place to get hose in France, Dore Dore, since 1819.

Until tomorrow,

  1. You are so right hose wise because even though I don’t wear them often, most celebs wear them all the time on stage and when making public appearances, no shame. Me, I’m thinking about updating my look and I want to try some of the colorful fishnets available from We Love Colors. The choices are endless and the variety there is so my style. Trendy, fashionable, girly, affordable, and so Sunset Blvd. (smile)

  2. You made some really good points there. I checked on the internet for additional information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site. aeedbkgdcaddeebb
