Eye spy...Freebies!

So, If you hadn't heard- we recently got our very own Facebook page! To celebrate our 2ooth "like" we've decided to giveaway one of these little beauties with every purchase from our Folksy Shop.

These limited edition (there are only 9!) button badges feature a TFSE eye in sunflower, teal, magenta and cornflower blue- and are perfect for showing off your love of our hand-printed lovelies for legs even when you're not sporting yours!

In Style in Scotland on Sunday

For anyone who missed it, Tights For Sore Eyes were featured in the InStyle section of Scotland in Sunday this month, in a lovely article by Anna Burnside. You can read it online at the Scotsman's website. We met Anna in a west end cafe in Glasgow, and our photos were taken in the DCA print studio by Ian Rutherford.

Tights for a Long Tall Sally

Due to popular demand, we've introduced a wider range of sizes to our collection of printed hosiery. Tights For Sore Eyes are now available in sizes small/medium (that's about a UK 8 - 12) and also large/extra large (which are a size 14 - 18). Check out our folksy shop for our full range of styles and sizes.

If you go down to the woods today...

Well- Tights For Sore Eyes outing to Dundee's Botanic gardens was a big success! We set up shop in the Botanic's cute and cosy chalet with our pal Lizzy Leg in tow. The garden itself was an amazing setting, and with a steady flow of visitors we were kept very busy!

Our Flocking Birds tights were really popular, and as a result, we only have 1 pair left, in Khaki. Our Online Shop is back up online, where you can buy the last pair of these lovelies!

With another busy week of printing, Danni and I can't wait to take Tights For Sore Eyes to Dundee's Botanic Gardens for the Dundee Jamboree's next event: a collaboration with mixed genre music afficionados, n_ilk, on the 11th of September.

With a range of new colours and even a few old favourite designs, we can't wait to set up shop with a whole host of lycra lovelies!

Kicking off at 3.30pm, and stretching on until 10pm. With handmade goodies from the Dundee Jamboree crew and music by the fantastic Jo Foster, Loops Haunt & Esperi. You can buy your tickets online and RSVP to the facebook event here.

See you there!

A Good Folksy Friday

It's been a good Folksy Friday for Tights for Sore Eyes so far, as we've had three lovely bloggers include us in their features! Check out our Mr Moustache Tights in Lonely Heart's Marvelous Moustache article; a run-down by Cinnamon Jewellery; and an inclusion of our Baby Blue Swarovski Diamond Tights in Wellydog's virtual outfit- where she's chosen her head-to-toe get-up entirely from Folksy.

We were also lucky enough to be included in Kate Shapland's The Leg Room blog no less than twice this week. Kate's blog has been nominated for the Cosmopolitan Blog awards, so do the right thing and give her your vote!

So a big, big Cheers to everybody who took the time to write. We've started a new Press Page so you can have a read at some other things that have been written about our Tights. Happy Friday!
