There's a small discussion I've had a while ago. And, just when I thought I might bring it your way (and started wondering HOW to do so), our beloved Burda magazine featured a single image that sparked it all up for me. It is a tight issue - about wearing tight-like undergarments.
Ripped jeans. Tank tops. Flip flops. Visible bra straps. Wrinkled shirts. Shorts. Micro-mini skirts. Bare midriffs. Some days I think that the era of wearing pantyhose is fading away, and that THESE magazines are to be the only place we can see that, once essential, item of the Office Lady Style.
..there's more on the subject,
but let's give this issue a go first.
Here's the new and improved way
of coloring your hair!
The continuation of the mini-novel
One thing we ALL deal with
was and still is the lost of color in our garments
This is "Perwoll" - and they are still making detergents
White asparagus is the result of applying a blanching technique while the asparagus shoots are growing. To cultivate white asparagus, the shoots are covered with soil as they grow, i.e. earthed up; without exposure to sunlight, no photosynthesis starts, and the shoots remain white. Compared to green asparagus, the locally cultivated so-called "white gold" or "edible ivory" asparagus, also referred to as "the royal vegetable", is less bitter and much more tender.
(note - Not that I would know, since I haven't had the chance of trying it out - YET)
Life is better when there's cake!
Some might consider this kitsch,
but I like a table-cloth with lots of fruits aplique on it.
Why don't you "try Gardisette - front curtains sale!"
So many adorable details in this single page:
The perfectly shaped white chairs in the first image
the artistic fish made out of wire on the other,
the straight-lined full-wall cabinet on the third...
OK. Let's talk stockings in the office...

...sounds like a mystery-tale!
Whenever I see coins, I think of savings :)
"How the catch the spring's breeze in your laundry basket?"
Such a lovely advertisement text.
Cheese MUST be good
when it's advertised by a COW, right? :)
Surely, we can't have a magazine issue
without some under-wear.
Undergarments are the essential - (I hope so) :)
Change of climates is GREAT.
This little fella is the "Picture and Radio" star.
To me, this gives some pajama-feel.
We come to this serious question. For much of the 20th century, pantyhose were an essential component of any polished woman’s outfit. But then, many "new generation" women stopped wearing pantyhose years ago, dismissing them as uncomfortable and easily ruined by runs. Most women of this day and age have never even worn them, and thanks to more casual office wear, they don’t need to in most offices.
Going tight-less requires a certain level of maintenance, out of sheer politeness: the lavishing of moisture, and perhaps self-tanner, ‘spray-on tights’..
Quite a few discussion exist on the subject.
1. If you are wearing pantyhose, you’re seen as uptight, antiquated, dull, unable to keep up physically and mentally, and unworthy of their time
2. If you’re not wearing tights, you’re seen as a slacker, unkempt, crude, unprofessional, poor-mannered and unworthy of their time.
So: is it, actually, a generation thing?
Is it a status issue?
I would like to hear your say.
