Pantyhose or No: Like the Plague or A Girl’s Best Friend?

with 2 comments

PantyhoseI came across a blog post today that had me caught in a weird facial expression: half smiley smirk, half frowny confusion. On one hand, I was interested by the fact there were other women giving the question some serious thought—relieved that I wasn’t a lonely obsessive, concerned about the hip yet appropriate way to dress one’s legs. On the other hand, how much serious consideration does this question really merit?

In her post Why I Still Wear Pantyhose (Oh, The Horror!), Kate Evans-Correia is quite sure that there’s a time and a place for the hose. Confidently, she gives a friend no-qualms advice to wear, “something that looks bare, but you still have something on your legs to get a smoother look.” Sounds reasonable and logical given the planned event under question is in Massachusetts during October.

You’ve got to read the post yourself to appreciate the humor and the actual weight of the dilemma. Although I’m not particularly pro-hose myself, I do understand where Kate is coming from.

Keep going all the way to the bottom to see the comments too. I’m still amused in a secret society kind of way by the whole thing. Perhaps I’m just strange.
