March 2019 Newsletter – Autumn arriving

      Summer used to be my favourite season.  The canon of cicadasÔÇÖ droning noise paired with a glass of chilled beer is the best!  However, the rise in temperature in recent years really make summer unbearable, even in N.Z.  Autumn, with gradual cooling climate and picturesque scenery wins my heart.  It is also one of the seasons that I can fully test all kinds of hosiery.

Comparison Review: Orobl├╣ Magie 20 tights vs. CdR Eterno Super Lucido 20 DEN tights

      Occasionally, reviewing one style immediately reminds me of another because of their similarity.  In this comparison review, I would like to compare two glossy tights I recently reviewed – the Magie 20 tights from Orobl├╣ and Eterno Super Lucido 20 den tights from Cecilia de Rafael.  For ease of reading, I have abbreviated the latter to Eterno SL in this review.  Also, the Magie 20 is in nude colour, whereas the Eterno SL is in black.
