Went on a shopping spree yesterday, brought home a pair of vintage felted wool spats, six lovely Art Deco glass buttons and some odds and ends that are probably of even less interest to anyone but me. H&M sells coral seamed hose at the moment, as well as black, taupe and some off-white and champagne shades. Could not resist the sheer absurdity of the "yellowish pink" shade, so now I can match my lipstick to my seamed stockings - how awesome is that?

Size 46, whatever that means in spat sizes - probably the shoe size. Need some modifications to fit well over heels, but that shouldn't be a problem, and unlike both pairs of military spats and gaiters A owns these fit snugly around my ankles. I think the zippers are a very nice touch.

Yes, the colour is variable - some of them are browner, some greyer. The overall impression is taupe in person. I have no idea what to do with them, but they were marked down 50% in one of those honestly rather awful trendy vintage stores, along with the spats, so I couldn't resist. So pretty - a blouse or something, maybe?
