FOF Hallie Peterson of Leg Luxury is giving away two pairs of her one-of-a-kind tights. Enter to win by answering in the comments below: Do you always wear nude stockings with skirts–even in the summer?
“When I get dressed, I start with my tights. I decide which ones to wear [based on] my attitude,” says Hallie. “If I’m feeling sassy, for instance, then I put on something like my ‘Wild and Fun’ tights or my ‘Feathery Lace’ ones.” If she’s feeling more conservative, Hallie opts for her ‘Little Dots’ or ‘Elegant Scrolls.’
Hallie has the luxury of choosing from dozens of styles, because as owner of Leg Luxury, Hallie takes multiple trips to Asia each year to find the most unique tights.”I’ve had women literally chase me across parking lots to ask me where I got my tights.” She doesn’t sell basics opaques or sheers because, well… “you can get those in Target,” says Hallie. On her buying trips, if she doesn’t see quite what she’s looking for, she works with her manufacturers to come up with something truly one-of-a kind.
“A client came to me and said ‘look, I’m 42 years old, I hate panty lines, I’m single and I take my clothes off in front of men.’ So I worked with my vendors and we created tights with these lacy French cut panties sewed in,” says Hallie. “It gives a sexy, elegant feel and it removes the question of whether to wear panties or not.”
Prior to launching her tights business, Hallie, a San Diego-based FOF, worked in marketing for Radisson Hotels and Northwest airlines while launching multiple side endeavors, including selling popcorn in Russia. “When I write my biography, it’s going to be called ‘From Popcorn to Pantyhouse–Living the Frivolous Life,’ she jokes. But, all jokes aside, Hallie describes herself as an “entrepreneur with great purpose, background and foundation.” “I’ve reinvented myself a number of times but I think I’ve found what I’m sticking with,” says Hallie.
