Featured Blogger: Jo of Lost in the Haze

Jo of Lost in the Haze joins us this month as our featured blogger! She hails from New Zealand, and has a classy vintage look with a quirky modern-day twist. The result? A fun, fresh look that brings a smile to your lips. Of course, she loves tights, and is especially in-tune with pairing adorable socks with her look…long before the socks + sandals look became trendy! With her style shots set against a dreamy lush background, Jo’s fashion sense truly shines through the haze.

Thank you, Jo, for sharing your style with us continuing to make Foot Traffic look good!

Guest Blogger: “Foot Traffic to the Rescue” by Jayme

Foot Traffic Made My Presentation

I work with Foot Traffic’s marketing agency as one of their online strategists. My job is to help them decide what content to produce and help come up with campaigns. So you could say I’m pretty much behind the scenes. So what am I doing front and center as a guest blogger?

The Fashion Emergency

I was recently asked to speak at the 2nd Annual Content Marketing Retreat, on Whidbey Island, in Langley, Washington. I was indeed honored, and taking the event seriously, decided to find a new outfit. I found the dress – straight and fitted. I found the shoes – sky-high but sturdy. Found the jewelry – in my drawer. Then as I tried it all on two days before I was to board a plane to Washington, the outfit seemed incomplete. “I need tights!” I thought.

WONDERFUL WINTER WHITE…

Wrap yourself in winter white from you coat to your tights…
 

 In my many years living in Kansas City, I cannot think of a winter when we did not have snow by January. But here we are, no snow, and temperature in the 50’s.  I am not complaining. I am the first to admit that I do not enjoy shoveling snow, driving on ice or cleaning off a frozen windshield. And hat hair is the worst!

However, I love the beauty of the fresh fallen snow particularly at night as the moon reflects its light off of a glistening blanket of white.  So what is it about this white wonderland that is so special?
I think we love the idea of winter white because it is fresh and relaxing and is a welcome opposite of the black that seems to overwhelm our wardrobes during these cold dark days.

One of my favorite bloggers, Jessie, at http://www.styleandpepperblog.com recently posted the photo above, taken at a conference she attended in Salt Lake City. (see her blogpost :Photoshoot:Winter Wonderland ) These winter white outfits that she styled are great examples of how pretty winter white can be and I imagine most of us have items in our closet that we can pull together to create such a look.

Notice that the outfit goes from head to toe so if you don’t have winter white tights, check out our Signature combed cotton ivory tights; Ivory Knee High Textured Trouser Socks; Ivory Nordic textured tights, as well as our ivory cable knit legwarmers.

CONFIDENCE in COTTON

Foot Traffic Cotton Tights

It’s cold!  Winter is finally here and we start digging in our drawers to find our socks, leggings, tights, etc. to find something to keep our legs warm (without sacrificing our fashion sensibilities, of course!).  What a great time to talk about cotton tights and leggings. 

Why cotton?
Our cotton tights and leggings are made of 60 % combed cotton, the finest cotton available. They are like wearing your underwear all the way to your feet. You wore cotton as a baby and there’s a reason for that. It’s a naturally soft, durable fiber. That’s what makes our tights and leggings so darn soft and comfortable.

But wait… there’s more! Cotton is a fiber that blends beautifully with other fibers to ensure a great fit. So, using our very secret weaving technique (hint: high needle count and proprietary weaving process) we added nylon and spandex for maximum stretch and flexibility giving each pair the ability to retain its original shape after every wearing and every washing. AND, the crotch stays up. AND they don’t stretch out.  AND they don’t shrink!  That’s why they fit every time you put them on.

Our waistband is a 1” feathered underwear elastic waistband so it won’t roll over or down. Once they are on, no yanking or pulling up. That’s why you forget you have them on.

Our proprietary construction process eliminates the need for a seat panel. Instead we have a single, flat reinforced seam in the seat so no unsightly lines under your pants or skirts.  That’s why your butt looks so good!

Cotton is durable. Think about items like denim, diapers, sheets and shirts. They are made of cotton because the fiber is one of the most durable fibers available.  Our cotton tights don’t easily run and don’t wear out so plan on wearing them over and over.

That’s why we are confident that Foot Traffic cotton tights and leggings will be in your drawer next time you are digging for your favorite legwear!

We are so confident that you will love them, we are offering a guarantee with our SIGNATURE combed cotton tights and leggings as well as our PREMIUM combed cotton leggings. Click here  for the details!

 

Let us know what you think of our cottons!

I’M DREAMING OF A BRIGHT CHRISTMAS…

Did you know that color is a great way to change your mood? Just as music creates an emotional response so does color. With the current, unsettled economic situation, we are all looking for a reason to be cheerful. No wonder major retailers this holiday season are featuring bright, bold colors, suggesting strength, confidence, and optimism.

Whether it’s bright dresses, colorful jeans, or accessories, you will see color everywhere this holiday and who isn’t more cheerful when wearing bright colors? Favorite holiday colors include red, turquoise, emerald green, sapphire blue, hot pink, and orange.

And, being the “bright spot” at a party doesn’t mean you have to look like a Christmas tree. With a few fun colorful accessories, you will brighten your mood and the mood of others around you. Of course, a simple way to add color is with a pair of colorful tights or leggings. Put on your LBD or black skirt, add tights, a matching scarf… and voila!

Other featured accessories include bright shoes, purses, scarves, hats, belts, etc.

This holiday season, it is time to step away from the television, put down your bank statements, and take time to enjoy the holidays…..

 

….AND MAY ALL YOUR CHRISTMAS TIGHTS BE BRIGHT!!!

The Quality of Cashmere…

So much luxury from such a little goat!

Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazine Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazine

We can thank the Capra Hircus Laniger goat for giving us the incredibly soft, supple, sought-after fiber, cashmere. For over 10,000 years, this remarkable goat has been present in Central Asia, and is still thriving in the remote regions of the inhospitable uplands of Inner and Outer Mongolia, Afghanistan, and Iran.  The extreme weather conditions and the Cashmere Goat - Selvege magazinescarcity of water and vegetation on this arid countryside have forced these particular goats to adapt and survive on very little. It’s OK. They like it.

The extreme changes in temperature between day and night as well as the brutal harsh winters (sometimes 45 degrees below zero!) require the goats to grow a unique coat, providing warmth and protection. The long course outer hairs are the guard hairs. The underfleece, the fine soft silky hairs, six times finer than human hair, is called the duvet, pashm, or cashmere.  The colder the climate, the finer and warmer the undercoat.

In early spring when the goats moult, the Himalayan farmers comb the fine woolen undercoat from the neck and chest of goat, painstakingly separating the guard hairs from the sumptuous cashmere fibers. This de-hairing process is usually done mechanically but in some regions this process is still done by hand.
