{What Katie Did} Stockings Giveaway!

Photobucket

A few weeks ago What Katie Did asked if I would review their stockings, and give ten pairs away to ten of you lovelies. They recently opened a shop in L.A. (I want to gooooo), which means domestic shipping for those of us who can't pop into the shop one afternoon. 

I've wanted to try out their stockings for a while, so of course I said yes! 

I picked out some basic, nude seamed stockings, and a gold metallic seamed pair. The first day I wore them was great, they aren't fully fashioned, and they stretch, which I don't usually wear, but it was actually nice for a change! I could kneel down and things from the bottom shelf without popping a rip in the knee, and the coverage was just right, not shiny (can't stand shiny). 

All in all, if you're looking for a vintage look, without the restrictions and price tag of authentic fully fashioned stockings, I'd recommend trying these out. 

Ooooooor.....

Enter this giveaway and try out a pair for free!!!!

There can be 10 winners (Yes! 10!) Simply follow this link and fill out the requested information. Anything from their Retro Seamed Hosiery collection qualifies for the giveaway.

The contest is open to international readers, and will run one week, closing on December 2nd. 
After you enter the competition be sure to check out the What Katie Did Blog written by one of my favorite vintage bloggers, Aimee of Bright Young Twins

You look gorgeous! I just entered the giveaway....fingers crossed! I haven't tried What Katie Did yet, but have heard really great things about them!

Oohhhh I hope I win (though I have the worst luck when it comes to competitions). I really want to try the wkd stockings.

Dakota said...

Oh boy, I entered, though I'm also itching to get down to the store myself while I'm in California! I'm awfully sick of cheap stockings that run right off the bat, so I guess it's time to invest in some good ones.
And oh how I adore this photo shoot... the robe and the tree are completely marvelous!!!

Sarah Kyle said...

Love that robe!

Jessica Cangiano said...

These photos are, without a doubt amongst the most glamorous and gorgeous you've ever shared with us. My stars, never has Christmas looked so pretty or stylish before!

Thank you very much for holding this giveaway and for sharing your thoughts on WKD's stockings with us.

Happiest countdown to Christmas!
♥ Jessica

Love the pictures!


I would love to win a pair!

Hannah said...

Oh how lovely!! You are beautiful and the photos are so great! I can't stop looking at them. Love all the pink and that robe is wonderful!

Rachelle said...

I'm loving the retro seamed tights, don't have a suspender belt that I can find anymore so tights tend to work better.

Nan said...

Gorgeous photos of you pretty lady!!

MissNathalieVintage said...

Hooray! You caught one of my favorite cat things of all time on film. Explanation: I adore when a cat just happens to sit around and suddenly their tounge is sticking out. I've tried my hardest to photograph my two cats (my cats passed away years ago) looking so adorable. I was never quick enough.

Ruby Armoire said...

Just perfection, as always!

I've only recently discovered What Katie Did's coffee coloured retro seams, they are good for days that are too cold for my fully fashioned nylons, but not cold enough to break out the heavy duty cotton stockings.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway, I'm trying to very slowly build my collection of true vintage and faux-vintage items, so I would love a pair of these. :)

Love your glamorous pink Christmas tree, btw!

Melissa said...

Hang the stockings, I want your robe!

I live in WA, too.

Anushka said...

WKD stockings are great, I wear the simple basic ones and they are pretty hardwearing!
Please do enter me in the draw as well:)

So wish their shop wasn't halfway across the country, boo!

THAT is how stockings should be modeled (well at least around the holidays), perfect. :)

cupcakes and kitties said...

These photos are so lovely. Very glamorous and pinup girl-esque. What a precious kitty, too!

Your blog is beautiful and very inspiring. I've been reading for a while now, but haven't gotten around to commenting yet. :)

I entered the giveaway! Fingers crossed!

Anders E said...

Well, blow me down! Totally infatuating photos! Take care!

cara said...

such a cute post and a fun giveaway. *fingers crossed for winning the polka dot seamed tights- i adore them. thanks for the opportunity, solanah! x

KittyMeow said...

Yay I entered too! I always wear fully fashioned and get all agro when I put a ladder in a pair. Usually get all panicky that I won't ever be able to find any more so I buy up big on ebay and now I've got heaps of pairs! But you can always have more! ;-)

Valerie said...

So gorgeous, love the pink tree! We have a white one, perhaps someday I can convince the husband for a pink one!

ChatterBlossom said...

OOooooh, this is very exciting! Good day to find your blog! I went to her site and the polka dotted pantyhose are beautiful.

This is so exciting. I have been missing my black seamed stockings so badly. Thank you for telling us about them!

Nika Chick said...

So sweet! Pink and neat look, love it!

Filled in the form, will be happy to win :)

Gabrielle Clayvon said...

These are some of the loveliest pictures. I just adore all the pastel colors. That nude color stocking looks wonderful on you.

liliesandremains said...

Not that I'll win, but hooray! Regardless, think I need to give these a try, anytime I bend down (like people do) I end up popping the knees of my vintage ones:(

A question - do they have real seams, or are they those weird fake ones (like, a darker line.)?

Thanks Solanah!

Ashley Sloan said...

Amazing! Where did you get your pink Christmas tree!?! Please tell me somewhere near Portland, I need this to happen...although my husband already said no. He just doesn't understand how necessary this is.

Belle Cherrie said...

I am loving all the pink going on in this post! Stunning :)

Solanah said...

Lilliesandremains, the seam on the beige ones I got are super light, but you can get the contrast seams too. I like the subtle seams, I think you'd like them. I've snagged a few little spots, but they're just snags, no runs!

Ashley Sloan, I did get it in Portland, but at an antique shop! It's not vintage, but a tree that came out a few years ago. It was in a shabby chic type booth, so try looking in those types of places!
