Absolutely ages ago I won a competition at I Want You to Know and these amazing House of Holland Cititights were my prize. They've been sitting at the psot office waiting to be collected for about a week and a half, and now finally they're in my hands!

I got to pick which city I wanted on my tights and naturally I chose London which is why they have the amazing Big Ben pattern on them! I know loads of bloggers have th House of Holland alphabet tights from a couple of years back, and I've heard they're prety sturdy and ladder resistant so I have high hopes for these. They even had instructions on the packet for hw to put on tights without laddering them, so I'll be taking notes!

I've got a couple of pairs of the Alphabet ones, and I wouldn't say they were ladder resistant! I would be very careful!

Rachel said...

Amazing! I still want the House of Holland fake stocking and suspender tights. I don't usually like HoH at all but the tights are awesome! x

LOVE them! I have some of the house print tights but I'm toooo scared to wear them haha x

Krissy said...

What a fun pattern! And hey, I learned something new today - the term "laddering". We call it "snagging" your tights.

Love HoH tights, and especially the big ben ones. Super cute ;)

First couple of pictures I wasn't sure if it's a photography or a drawing! :) Uh, you just reminded me I have a parcel waiting to be picked up.. I'm just hoping they might choose to try and redeliver (I don't think they actually do that though :P)

Glad you got them in the end, but be careful with them! My suspender tights are fine but a few of the others have laddered...still wear them though. My NYC tights came today, wooop.

Even if they ladder keep wearing them, there fab! You could do a really cool tougher look with these tights. P.s love the colour of your shoes! x

AMAZING!!! I really wanted these (London of course) but never got round to buying them! Some advice, I have a few pairs of HOH tights and they ladder very easily so be warned =)

Hmm what is the best way to put tights on without laddering them? I'm intrigued! I love the tights though, i think I'd get the Paris ones.
