Fishnets Ping Pong Piece


Happy Monday, everyone! I am SO excited for this post!! I was invited to join the Ping Pong Piece by Ann from Kremb De La Kremb, who I found through Instagram and have been smitten with her ever since! Her personality is so fun and bubbly and it shows in her posts and also her Insta stories. She has the best style and always puts the most fun and unique outfits together and ties it all together with a red lippie, of course 😉 She lives in Hong Kong with her family, and her posts have definitely convinced me that I NEED to travel there someday! Ann and her other 2 fabulous friends, Anna from Anna’s Island Style and Samantha from Fake Fabulous, do something called the Ping Pong Piece, where they pick one item and all style it in their own ways. This month was Ann’s turn and she chose fishnet tights, which was no surprise to me! I knew she would rock them, and you’ll see below that she definitely did. All of them did!

I was going to style my fishnets with my vintage Levis cutoffs and came out of the bedroom wearing them and my husband looked at me with “that look” and I knew I had to find something else lol. I personally thought it was fine, but he said it was too seductive, so I changed because I don’t want to make the hubby uncomfortable! So, I pulled out this black maxi and tied it at the bottom to show the tights better. I added my fave cognac jacket and mules to give it a pop. Of course added my trusty hat! I have to be honest, I bought these tights many years ago and have never worn them, but I really love this look! I am definitely going to wear them again. Next time I will most likely style them how Ann did. Her fabulous look is below!

Is she fab, or what?! I just love it all from top to bottom. Her tee is too cute and those jeans are fab!! She definitely rocked this look, I mean, watch out Hong Kong!!! Her outfit details are below:

Sunnies and Tee–Forever 21
Leather Moto–a swap
Fox Bag–Hong Kong Salvation Army
Shoes–Stella McCartney
Tights–Hong Kong Ladies’ Market

Next is Anna and she went with a colored pair of fishnets and I love it!! How cute are those shoes?!! Obsessed! And with the blue tights.. so good. I just love the greens and blues together. It looks so lovely! Anna lives in a tiny island 28 miles off the Southwest of Cornwall and runs an art gallery, how amazing is that?! Another reason I love blogging, is meeting people like Ann, Anna, and Samantha 🙂 Anna’s outfit details are below:

Dress: Peekaboo (vintage)
Cardi: Phase Eight
Tights: Topshop
Shoes: Roberto Gil
Necklace and rings: charity shop

Last but not least, is Samantha who hates fishnets (her words) but totally ROCKED them!!! I’m so in love with this outfit and her cute self! I absolutely adore the mix of prints and the fishnets are the perfect addition, in my opinion! I hope this changes your mind about them, Samantha! Samantha lives in Scotland and is a Biomedical Scientist… amazing! I love hearing what people do outside of blogging! Her outfit details are below:

Earrings: H&M
Top: old…can’t remember where from (I cut the label out as it was scratchy)
Skirt: Boden
Tights: 50p in a charity shop… M&S ones from about 100 years ago!
Shoes: Clarks
Bag: Vintage

Don’t you think they all rocked the fishnets?! This was so much fun and I’m so glad they asked me to be a part of this. I always want to have fun with my blog and not take it too serious. It’s easy to get in a pattern and not stray so I jumped at the chance to do this. I love mixing things up and trying out new things. It keeps it fresh and interesting! One of the main things I say, is that fashion should be FUN! Why not try out something new, because you may end up loving it! So many people tell me that they love certain things, but they could never wear it. Well, I think you never know unless you try it 🙂 So just have FUN, people!
Have a fab Monday!! Please, please go check out my new friends blogs and I promise you’ll love them!

  1. I love how you have incorporated fishnets into so many outfits! I have been wanting to try it but I haven’t been brave enough yet…

  2. These are so fun! I have never worn fishnets but have seriously been considering it!

  3. I have never worn fishnets but they look so cute, I will have to give this a try.

  4. Thanks so much Mary for joining in with this feature. Yes, you’re so right, fashion should be fun and I hope that this comes across with our fishnets and shows how hugely wearable they can be. We ladies cross an age divide too and yet that’s no reason either to say we can’t style up fishnets to suit any age group.
    I love that your hubby, like mine, can just give you the look and you know how to respond. Fishnets do get a bit of bad press, but hopefully we’ve gone a way to dispel the tacky image they might have.

  6. Mary, as usual, I have to say, I am so glad to be friends with you. Your kindness and sincerity are so felt. You seriously boost me up like no one ever has. I love your feedback on IG. It makes my day when you’ve given me a comment because I really value your opinion. You have amazing style, so to hear that you think I have style just means the world to me.

    Thank you so much for joining us. I couldn’t agree with you more: fashion should be fun!!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb
