Miranda Kerr's Sheer Tights!

Has anyone else been suffering a pang of major fashion envy every time they see Miranda Kerr rocking her sheer tights in the media recently? We have been style stalking the beautiful model and her recent off duty look tends to consist of something short, a casual tee or jumper, an oversized jacket, her beloved sheer tights and some studded ankle boots.

I don't know about you, but don't you agree that the simple pieces she puts together look utterly gorgeous and effortlessly chic?
sheer tights
Get some of Miranda's style points with the hosiery of the moment!

Essex'ee Legs have a wide range of sheer tights to choose from.
My favourite sheers from our collection are the Charnos Killer Figure Sheer Control Tights
-great quality sheers that double up as control top hosiery too. On trend and they smooth any lumps and bumps, giving you a slinky silhouette... what more could a girl ask for?!

The high street is bursting with shorts, cute mini skirts and skorts at the moment...

Stars Underlines Best Shop Awards Ceremony 2013

Essex'ee Legs were so excited, and honoured, to be finalists for not just one, but two awards at this years prestigious Underline Magazine awards. All of the hard work that goes into running our online shop was recognised with nominations in the 'Best Specialist ETailer' and 'Best Hosiery Retailer' categories. Unfortunately we didn't win an award this year but we had a fabulous time at the bash...

I wore my favourite Gipsy Sheer Love Heart Tights £7.99

mmmmmmm...our meal was delicious! :)

Kris from breast cancer charity CoppaFeel made an extremely inspiring and heart-rending speech with such an important message - CHECK YOUR BOOBIES regularly, no matter what age you are! Kris was diagnosed with advanced stage four breast cancer in 2008 at the age of 23. Because of her young age her GP assumed the lump she found was hormonal and sent her away. With the lump still not gone six months later, Kris returned to her doctor and was told her shocking diagnosis. Just one month after her diagnosis, Kris made the brave and courageous decision to turn her shock and anger into something positive and the CoppaFeel Charity was born. Her mission is to encourage a generation to examine themselves regularly and make young people aware that cancer can happen to them, no matter what age. Kris and CoppaFeel campaign and fundraise relentlessly, and she was at the awards to tell us about their #BraHijack campaign. The aim is to get the lingerie world on board by sewing 'reminder to check' labels into every bra forever! With and Curvy Kate sewing 'your care' instructions into their bras from 2014, the campaign is off to a fantastic start!

An awards ceremony would not have been complete without some slightly tipsy dancing :)

Thank you Underlines Magazine and CoppaFeel for a fantastic evening and congratulations to all of this years winners!

Autumnal Adventures!

Crisp clear autumn days are my favourite! Perfect for long walks in the park, amongst a pretty backdrop of multi-coloured falling leaves... beautiful! These days are all about the layers! I love wellies worn with over knee socks peeking out of the top. Add another fun twist to this trend with spotty tights worn as a bottom layer under your cable socks. The different patterns and textures look great and will keep you warm. Build your layers with simple denim shorts, a big slouchy jumper, an oversized coat and a bright scarf to add a splash of colour.
long socks
These Gipsy Big Spot Tights and Gipsy Front Cable Over Knee Socks are a perfectly quirky combination for your autumn adventures! Shop the rest of our Essex'ee Legs autumnal look here

Don't forget to sparkle!

Following our bonfire night post we almost forgot one of the most important components for the perfect firework party- Some sparkle!

party pantyhose

Sparklers provide lots of fun and pretty moments. Ensure that you shimmer in Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights or Jonathan Aston Starburst Sequinned Tights! These gorgeous glitter tights will keep you sparkling all night!

Have a wonderful bonfire night or firework party this weekend :)

Baby you're a firework!

colour hosiery
All from Essex'ee Legs - coloured tights, coming soon and new arrivals
All this week the Essex'ee Legs team will be celebrating all things sparkly and colourful to join in the festivities of bonfire night! Reminiscing about fireworks and huddling round a bonfire with family and friends, always brings back childhood memories! I'm sure we all remember being told the story of Guy Fawkes...caught red handed ready to light 36 barrels of gun powder in the Houses of Parliament on the 5th of November 1605, Guy Fawkes was captured and executed. Such a heart-warming story! Bonfires were lit to celebrate the kings safety, so the 5th of November has been traditionally celebrated every year since, albeit a little more elaborately.

If you're attending a friends bonfire party or a spectacular firework event, be sure to wrap up warm and wear some colour tights to add an explosion of vibrancy to your outfit ;) Jonathan Aston 40 Denier Opaque Tights are cosy and are available in 4 bright colours.

If you're throwing your own bonfire bash then here's our idea of firework party heaven...

String as many lights and bunting along your fences and tree's as you can for some enchanting decor. Lanterns and blankets will keep you warm along with the bonfire and hot chocolate :) Hot spiced apple rum punch for the adults wouldn't go a miss too! Stuff yourselves with hot dogs, pumpkin pie and smores! Whoever came up with the idea of smores is a genius! Simply toast your marshmallows on the bonfire, take a piece of chocolate and sandwich between to biscuits- Delicious!

So layer up with some fabulous colour hosiery and cosy knits, have fun and enjoy the fireworks, safely :)
