    These are in style today but mostly knee high stockings and painted on, really pretty but I'm afraid to buy them because they make them cheap…

    ….they are being sold today… bejeweled stocking were on the runway not too long ago, really popular with diy fashion blogs, also look up tattoo tights… they are really similar to the last bit, just not bejeweled

    I think it may have still been considered tacky and gaudy to have moons or little matadors jeweled around the ankle on such a sheer, flesh-toned stocking. It would look too much like a tattoo. I sort of thought the design on the heel was fine, but I think this trend tried to appeal to the young "rebellious" girls.

    i'm sure we could make them wearable again. the rest of the look would just have to be pretty conservative.

    @sarahisavampire Yeah but you can take those off when you get sick of them. With tattoos you're stuck with them even when you get old and wrinkly. Eewww lol

    Haha! Now people just get tattoos on their ankles instead of bejeweled stockings! I love the old fashion reels.

    I think it's interesting what was considered luxurious and fancy back then would now be considered tacky and gaudy.
