Stop & Stare & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

April 28, 2016

Some of you have been asking about my new tattoo. Well, here’s the real scoop …
Tattoo hosiery by Stop and Stare!

I reached out to the company Stop and Stare when I was introduced to their product from a fellow blogger’s IG post (Liz of What Lizzy Loves).  I couldn’t wait to try out this fun product! I’ve always been a fan of tattoos. I have one, quite large one, on my back, which people seldom see of course. I’ve often thought of adding more to my “collection” but was unsure.  These pantyhose are the perfect solution for me … all the fun without the pain and commitment.

Stop and Stare is a new company started by two “mumprenuers” in Ireland. It’s always nice to support a small business owned by women.
Here I’m modeling Black Dragon … 
and here Fish N Flowers … 

Lots of cool designs to choose from!  Also each pair is sheer to waist, with sandal toe, flat seams and a cotton gusset. Best of all, the premium quality Italian hosiery with Lycra is very flattering to your legs!  Be sure to check out the size chart when you order.  (I’m wearing a large.)

Have fun getting in touch with your wild side with Stop and Stare hosiery! People really will stop and stare!

I had the worst time trying to pick three looks this week, so I just turned it over to you dolls. Here are the looks that got the most clicks last week:
Super fab ladies and super chic looks!
Enjoy the link up!

    What a fun idea! I have a (small) tattoo on my shoulder, and I sometimes toy with the idea of getting another one.

      I toy with the idea too! 😉 OXOX

    Love your outfits and the tatoo hosiery is cool. Because of my connective tissue disease, I cant get a real tatoo, but have wanted a red headed pinup playing jazz guitar.
    Ill have to check these out. 🙂

    Those tights are such a great idea! I wonder if they have peacocks…… I have a back tattoo as well, and always wonder about getting another. It is not a peacock, unfortunately.

    • Reply dawnlucy April 29, 2016 at 7:23 pm

      Oh wow, a peacock would be so perfect for you!

  • Reply Monika Faulkner April 29, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    I've never had the courage to commit to a real tattoo, dearest Dawn…but this idea is kind of genius, isn't it?? I love the way you chose to showcase your bada** "body art" with all-black ensembles, too; definitely the perfect way to ensure a little "Stop and Stare" action when the mood strikes!! ;D

    • Reply dawnlucy April 29, 2016 at 7:28 pm

      Hee … thanks, Monika! I love throwing in a bit of badass when I get a chance! These would look great on you!

  • Reply Cathy OBrien April 29, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    What a fun concept. I love your outfits too! They look great on you and highlight the nylons.

    As you know, I Love these tatoo hose. They look so realistic in your photos! Such a cool idea. Seriously going to give them a try. Also, such a pleasant surprise to my look featured this week. Thanks!!!

  • Reply Rena May 2, 2016 at 5:34 am

    I love the look on you and I love the idea of faux tattoos. I've seen faux sleeves before but not hose. This is a fabulous option for those of us whose only venture into tattoos would be "temporary" one. Thank you for adding your post to the Powers The Flower link-up.

    Ive commented prior, but the style of this aline dress is lovely on you!
