Isis Tomie is a Brazilian Pantyhose Fashion Blogger whose website features very interesting outfits that include colorful, original pantyhose styles. We had the pleasure of interviewing her and you can check her answers in English and Brazilian below.
Can you introduce yourself and your blog? When did you start it and why?
Hi, I am Isis Tomie, 29 years old. I live in São Paulo, Brazil. I started my blog back in 2014 to talk about themes that interest me, my main focus was always on showcasing original styles of socks and tights but I also like to create articles about beauty and make-up.
If you had to describe your style how would you do it?
I have an alternative minimalist style and I don’t follow trends that much. I like to use darker or monochromatic pieces to highlight my colorful legwear.
Tenho um estilo alternativo minimalista, ou seja, não sigo as tendências. Gosto de mais peças escuras ou monocromáticas, para que as meias e meias-calças fiquem evidentes.
When you’re putting together your outfits where do you normally get your inspiration from?
I like the pin-up, goth and kawaii style a lot. These are my main inspirations but I don’t dress exactly like them.
Gosto bastante do estilo pin-up, góticas e kawaii. São inspirações, mas não me visto exatamente iguais a elas.
Can you name two people who have had the biggest influence on your style?
Do you consider yourself to be a trendsetter?
I think I’m still far away from being able to consider myself a “trendsetter” but maybe one day!
Não, ainda estou longe de ser uma “trendsetter”, mas quem sabe um dia!
Do you receive mails from fans of your blog asking you for style tips? What’s the main advice that you normally give them?
I don’t usually get those kinds of requests. My advice to everyone that says “oh, I don’t know how to wear that” is that they should go ahead and try it anyway without any inhibitions as long as it makes them feel good about themselves.
Não costumo receber esse tipo de pergunta. O conselho que eu digo para todos que falam “não sei usar isso” é para que usem sim, sem medo e use sempre algo que seja bom para si mesmo!
What are some of your favorite hosiery brands and shops?
LegAvenue, Virivee, Zohara Tights and Forever 21.
What was the priciest legwear item you’ve ever bought and how would you review it?
I really can’t say. Most of the tights that I have were bought by my mother when she traveled abroad and given to me as a gift.
Não lembro. A maioria das meias que eu tenho foram oferecidas (minha mãe comprou quando viajou para fora do Brasil)
What was the last pair of pantyhose/leggings you bought and what’s special about them?
The last pantyhose that I bought was a lace pair from HUE. Since the fishnet tights are trendy these days I wanted to try one of those myself since I didn’t have any. Unfortunately I made a mistake and ended up buying these lace tights instead.
Foi uma meia-calça rendada da HUE. Como as meias arrastão estão na moda, queria uma também, pois é uma meia que não tenho. Porém, me enganei e comprei uma meia rendada e não arrastão.
Walk us through your legwear drawer, what are some of your favorite legwear items and why?
Gradient tights, colorful tights and tattooed styles! They are the ones that create the most impact when I use them so they’re my favorites!
Meias degradês, meias coloridas e meias que parecem tatuagem! São as que mais causam impacto quando uso, por isso são as minhas favoritas!
What do you think is going to be the next big trend in the legwear universe?
Velvet textured tights, maybe! 🙂
What is your favorite article on www.legwearfashion.com and why?
I like the article 7 Best Pantyhose Review YouTube Video Channels because it inspires me to create more content for my Youtube channel! In Brazil we still don’t have any specific channels about socks and tights!
Gosto desse artigo pois me inspira a criar mais conteúdo para o youtube! No Brasil, não há canal específico sobre meias e meias-calças!
Thank you very much Isis, we love your style and attitude, keep posting!
Sarah Silverman’s scandalous poses at events are normally paired with interesting hosiery choices as you can see from the images below. She seems to have a special affinity for faux stockings pantyhose which she wears in countless opportunities like, for example, during her interview with Letterman which you can check below.
For this particular occasion she chose to pair her legwear with a tight short black dress which favors her figure immensely. You can catch a glimpse of the faux stockings detail right after the 5:00 mark.
She seems to be wearing the same pair of pantyhose on the video below where she’s being interviewed by Conan but this time she chose to pair them with some denim shorts and a simple t-shirt. At the 1:30 mark you can get a close-up view of her tights when she holds her phone between her legs. Yes, that’s good old Sarah for you.
Is she wearing the same tights on the Graham Norton Show or does she just have a drawer full of them? Come on Sarah, time to diversify a little bit.
