I think the answer is no, but I need confirmatio before I get dressed for a party this evening...

Think you're right mp - despite freezing legs!

SoupDragon Sat 14-May-05 18:31:51

Dear cod, no. Nevernevernever

leahbump Sat 14-May-05 18:32:10

sorry but no..even the ones that don't have reinforced toes look a but sad IMO.

you can get what are called 'sandal tights' that dont have a seam at the front, or anywhere on the foot for that matter. They are very fine and personally I think better than lillywhite legs. Juts my opinion though.

Slap some fake tan on!

Not even black fishnets with strappy silver sandals and a nice bit of red nail varnish peeking through? REally?

SoupDragon Sat 14-May-05 18:40:42

Oh, that's OK, Snafu.

SoupDragon Sat 14-May-05 18:41:04

Mainly because you clearly don't give a damn about your appearance.

snafu Sat 14-May-05 18:41:38

Thank god for that.

snafu Sat 14-May-05 18:42:45


Just 'cos dragons can't wear fishnets.

Newbarnsleygirl Sat 14-May-05 18:43:58

Well tbh I would'nt go for the silver sandals.

White patent platform sandals are much better IMO.

snafu Sat 14-May-05 18:45:39

I always knew you had no taste, nbg.

Newbarnsleygirl Sat 14-May-05 18:47:15

No taste!

No taste!

How dare you!

What is wrong with white patent?

WideWebWitch Sat 14-May-05 18:47:59

Good lord no.

Gobbledigook Sat 14-May-05 18:48:43

NO way!!

Even though you can get tights for open toe sandals and even those with no toes in they are just naff! Go without!

JoolsToo Sat 14-May-05 18:50:02

I feel the cold I need socks

snafu Sat 14-May-05 18:50:08

Oh, no, nothing at all. I expect white patent is seen as very Barnsley.

Wherever that is.


Newbarnsleygirl Sat 14-May-05 18:55:36

Ooooooooh that was a bit below the white patent belt.

It's a good job I'm not from Barnsley then

MrsDoolittle Sat 14-May-05 19:07:59

No way!

docket Sat 14-May-05 19:24:31

absolutely. definitely. not.

moondog Sat 14-May-05 19:28:29

God no! Hideous! When I lived in Russia,women used to wear hideous little socklet things (made out of the same material as tights) in their sandals. Can you imagine.that foul trussed toe look and bare legs. The worst of both worlds.
