The Wearing of the Stockings

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

Dear Manolo, My super fantastic daughter shared your site with me and it is indeed a delight to read. I admire the Nicole Miller shoes you have pointed out, but being a lady of a certain age, I must ask a question about the wearing of the stockings? Ladies of style always did, except in summer, but this rule no longer seems true. It looks to me as if all the super fantastic glamour girls wear bare legs and strappy sandals at all times. But in January and with the elegant open-toe shoe (and legs that might benefit from a little gleam of the hosiery) are stockings still acceptable? What does the the wise and gentle Manolo think of this dilemma for the woman of a certain age?

Manolo says, it is indeed true, we live in greatly reduced times. When the Manolo he was the boy, the lady she was not dressed until the stockings they covered her legs.

And now? Now the trend toward the bareleggedness it has run the amok, so that even in the winter the Manolo he sees the womens showing their bare legs, with the shaving cuts, and the bruises, and the veins of the vericosa.

Manolo says, unless you are the 15-year-old super model girl, most of the womens they will look better with the right stockings.

Yes, during the summer it is frequently too hot to wear the stocking, but in the winter, if you are the fully-grown woman, then the stockings not only are they warm, but they hide the imperfections that the time it has given you.

And if you wear the beautiful Nicole Miller shoe the Manolo he has recommended, then the sheerest nude stockings with the so-called sandal-feets, they will look perfectly fine.
