stockings vs pantyhose

  1. wow, how this is off topic...
    what do you guys like better for going out....
    stockings (the old fashioned garter kind) or 'hose...

    personally, I cannot stand 'hose... and finally found a vintage store where you can get nice silk stockings with the funky seams down the back...yay... the pleasures of living in NYC...

    barbara........
    you would look sharp in those stockings.......
    me if i did a night on the town and did myself up how i envision myself.......dancing the noc away and other things.........
    stockings would be funky and black..........

    but then again, I dream and I am who I am..........noc on town for this kid........hair slicked back, earrings down to here..........tank top and blue jeans.....bare feet with just enough sandals to be let into places.......and if weather is right.....love to throw a jacket over ...........
    and I do not do makeup much, but then again......mascara to the hilt.........

    but then again.....my favorite look is just how you see me here......
    the everyday micro out of the closet(take the word closet any way that you take it, cause by now, you all should know that micro uses words as she chooses) and still a lil' shy.........

    but have and could be again.......

    barbara,
    you go girl.......

    I love you xoxoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxo

    . . . I think seemless panty hose feels soooooo smoooooth!

    Done a drag show once. . . actually twice. . . . got paid too! I make a very ugly female!!!


    (. . . .the worse part was having my wife put on the mascara. . . .)

    I HATE pantyhose, but they do look nice I suppose but I usually go barelegged.

    BUT, I think fishnets look really cool, just don't know where I'd where them, there are not many places around her to dress up and go out to-maybe on a trip to cool place

    I wish I could wear those cool sexy stockings. But I have big turkey thighs. gobble gobble. In the summer I go bare-legged and wear the dresses below the knee.

    Las VegasRN! I never noticed your thighs til you mentioned them! Why do we women always point out our physical faults to everyone?

    I prefer to wear plain old stockings everyday and I wear wild ones-- lime green, tiger striped, etc. If I'm going out, I do wear panty hose, and may wear some that are an odd color or texture if I'm feeling weird or sexy enough.

    I'm afraid I don't even know what a "RHPS" person is.

    Long story, but three of us guys dressed up as the "Lube Sisters". Friend #1 was "Jiffy Lube"; friend #2 was "Needa Lube" and I was their mother, "Nodda Lube". My wife dressed up as a man (really looked like a man too . . . ) as my brother - their uncle- and was named "Wanna Lube". It was a very over the top musical comedy act performed at a small club. Somewhere deep in our pile of stuff at home is pictures of the shows. IF if find them, I'll post them. Was LOTS of FUN! (Done many moons ago. . . .)
