Lewis Black on Broadway

Okay, it isn't quite that cold here, but you've got to love Lewis Black. (If you are offended by bad language, yadda yadda...)

trasparenze gennifer tights

Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights review

I got some of these--so far, so great. They're a better price than domestic wool tights, and the quality is lovely.

Gennifer aren't built for Antarctica, exactly, only slightly thicker than regular cotton-blend tights. It's a trade-off; I wanted something that would work with my existing pumps and boots. The colors, at least the ones I've tried, are perfect--Blu is dark inky blue, Fumo a very dark grey, Marrone a notch lighter than espresso...reminds me of coffee grounds, actually. I gravitate toward dark tights (easier to match with clothing and shoes).

Unlike other Italian-made legwear I've tried, these are relatively short; they just fit me (5'5", 134 lbs). I got size 2, which according to their size chart should have fit up to 155 lbs. in my height range--which is 5'5" to 5'8". I'm inclined to say no way would this size fit the upper end of that range in either height or weight.

Warmth-wise...not the warmest, but decent. In a lightly-heated office, Gennifer tights have been good to me.

It's too soon to say how well they wear, having washed mine only once so far, but I'll post back later on with an update.

Speakin' of updates...

Salux Beauty Skin Cloth

I love this thing! I still have the one I bought around April of last year, and, knock wood, I keep waiting for it to go bad. It did lose an eensy bit of scratchiness, but it's still pretty darn scratchy, and it dries admirably fast even in cold conditions (no need to fret about mold).
