In Rochester there is an old vintage shop selling fur coats, hats, long silk gloves, genuine silk stockings and other miscellaneous articles from an era where women were women and mem were men ... Its one of my secret pleasures for spending my hard earned pennies on frivolous pointless items that make me feel like a small child in a sophisticated womans dressing room ... There is a particular feel that true silk stockings have ... they look devine but only for the first hour or two that you wear them as they loose their shape ... especially under warm temperature ... it's best to only wear them for a short while
