Dont judge a product by its wrapping.


I love Wolford tights. At a minimum of $40 a pair though, I have yet to own a pair. They always have beautiful designs, the highest quality, and I hear are ever so comfortable. Which is also why you never find them on sale, or at discount stores. So when I was at T.J. Maxx today I did my look through all the stockings. Thats where I get all of mine, they always have good ones for good prices. Imagine my excitement when I found a bunch of Wolford stockings hidden in the back of rows of your average nude pantyhose. Beautiful tights, in designs and materials you wont find on many other brands. There were only two pairs in my size, one white open knit, and one pair gray and black thigh highs with an amazing abstract zig zag print. Pretty darn cool. AND they were marked down from $64.00 to $19.99. No question about it, I was not letting this opportunity pass by. So I buy the stockings and some peanut clusters becuase I missed lunch (they were alright...), and head on back home. Upon arriving home I open the package to try them on, and pull them out of the cardboard sleeve with the picture of the six foot woman with the tights on and wind blowing in her hair. I imagine that I too will be so cool that just the right amount of wind will follow me wherever I go to blow my hair back (enough so that it looks enchanting, but not so much that it messes it up). Pulling the tights out of the sleeve, a wave of disappointment pushes away the fabulous enchanting breeze, as the Wolford stockings I had already learned to love were absent, and in their place a pair of cheap black pantyhose. Some stocking hag switched my Wolfords, for a pair of nothings. Hey stocking hag. I hope your giant jagged yellow toenails rip those stockings in half. Lesson learned, check the product before you buy. And: I will constantly be on the lookout for any woman wearing my stockings. So if you walk down the street and I give you a dirty look you know why.

*Ok actually I don't hope that the stockings be damaged, but that karma slap her in some other way.

When I finally broke down and bought Wolford, it was impossible to go back to anything. I fon't care wtf they call themselves and what they charge, no one has ever made me feel as hot at Wolford's. The ultimate main-bait.
