‘Aight, guys and gals, we all know by now that I am mildly obsessed with We Love Colors. Their tights (and fishnets and socks) come in more than 45 colors, and they have sizes to fit every body…from kids to ladies to plus to mens. Really! They are one of the best, most comprehensive place to fit all your hosiery needs.

I’ve featured several of their colors in other blog posts (above you can see the rubine, charcoal, and maroon colors), and am always very happy with the fit and look.

That’s why I’m pleased to present this giveaway sponsored by We Love Colors! One lucky Wonderland reader will win a pair of tights in the color of his or her choice.


All you need to do is comment on this blog post (please include your email address in the form field) and tell me what your favorite We Love Colors color is, what stocking style you’d sport (fishnets, leggings, etc.), and what you’d wear them with. Savvy?

This contest ends on Friday, 19 June, at midnight PST. So enter now and tell your friends!

  1. Feeling legging lucky.

  2. Ooh, a giveaway! This is exciting stuff. My favorite We Love Colors color is rust. I’d enjoy leggings as well, especially under summer dresses on a slightly chilly/rainy day. (We’re having a lot of those right now in upstate New York!)

  3. I love all of WLC’s colors – they’re all gorgeous and true to life – but besides basic black one of my favorite colors is spruce :)

    I generally wear the full-length tights, but the footless ones are awesome as well!

    I wear all of my WLC tights with vintage dresses. :)

    Posted by Stefanie | 7 June 2009, 12:50 pm
  4. Yay, tights.

    I like just about all their colors, but the red, turquoise, and violet really stand out to me.

    If I wore something from We Love Colors, they’d probably be tights, and I’d probably wear them with all the skirts and dresses I have that generally don’t get to see the light of day. Or night, for that matter. :)

  5. I love the microfiber footless tights in mint green. I would probably wear them with a denim mini, flats and a graphic tee for the weekend, and a pretty, black tunic and wedge sandals for work.

    Posted by Diana | 7 June 2009, 1:22 pm
  6. I’ve been wanting to try these for so long! I think I’ll have to say that I love the Microfiber Footless Tights in Turquoise. I would wear them with a denim mini, a graphic tee, and flats or sandals for a casual look. I would then dress them up with a tunic or dress that is a darker color (and matches, of course) with flats or awesome slingback wedges.

    Posted by Kelli | 7 June 2009, 1:48 pm
  7. I love the Plus Size Nylon/Lycra tights in hunter green. I’d wear them with all my black shoes and my brown shoes. Having size 11 wide feet mean those are pretty much the only other colors I have.If I want to be extra warm , I’d put on my gray socks over the tights as well. On top I’d wear my lacy off-white blouse under my gray grandpa cardigan with one of my printed floral skirts.My hair would be back in the retro style it’s always in, and I’d be practicing my shushing and adjusting my glasses menacingly as the eccentric librarian I aspire to be.

  8. I love the Plus Splash Tights. They are rad!!!

    Posted by ulyssessgirl | 7 June 2009, 3:59 pm
  9. OOh, definitely a pair of purple tights with feet for me! They are fabulous – I love the emerald too!

    Posted by cat | 7 June 2009, 4:03 pm
  10. I want a pair of the Royal Blue Plus size tights so badly! I have this awesome polka dot dress I thifted that they would look killer with.

    Posted by Danyelle | 7 June 2009, 4:04 pm
  11. What a great blog this is! My favorite WLC are the nylon/lycra in maroon that I love to pair with a gray sweater dress in the winter and fall.


    Posted by Elle | 7 June 2009, 5:30 pm
  12. I couldn’t resist this contest…or the Lurex Glitter Fishnets. I would wear them with a black pencil skirt, my Jeffrey Campbell red leather boots and a charcoal half-jacket…and a sexy black lace cami underneath ;) I’m going to retweet now!

    Posted by Zemie | 7 June 2009, 6:26 pm
  13. I’m thinking some white diamond fishnets to go with my banana fade dress for Melissa’s wedding. The dress is a little hard to explain – sort of wispy fabric, sunny, color fades from light yellow to brown. Thoughts?

    Posted by oldvertue0103 | 7 June 2009, 7:17 pm
  14. I would most definitely wear a pair of Scout Green Plus Size Nylon/Lycra Tights with a nautical-inspired dress, saddle shoes and vintage eyeglasses….’cause I wouldn’t be able to see my awesome tights without them!

    Posted by Ferris | 7 June 2009, 7:50 pm
  15. I love the Plus Size Nylon/Lycra Tights in Magenta. :) I would wear them with my favourite eBay sundress that never gets to see the light in winter like it is now!

    Posted by Louise | 7 June 2009, 8:18 pm
  16. My favorite color is either the emerald or the turquoise, definitely. I mostly wear full on tights, but occassionally will go for leggings/footless. I’ll wear them under all kinds of dresses and skirts, whatever suits my mood that day.

    Posted by Chelsea | 7 June 2009, 10:29 pm
  17. I would totally wear the White Diamond fishnets with my new black and white cocktail dress…I’ll show you pictures of it after my birthday =)

    Posted by Melissa K | 7 June 2009, 10:43 pm
  18. Oooh! My favorite color is the Dusty Green. I’ve been wanting a pair of footed tights in Dusty green for so long. I usually hate pastels, but i feel like these would be so great with a black/grey/white outfit.

    Posted by Sarah of Endless Vintage | 7 June 2009, 11:38 pm
  19. I love WLC. My favorite are the turquoise. I wear the tights with an array of outfits. I would love to increase my collection.

    Posted by Rebecca | 8 June 2009, 8:18 am
  20. I want the orange footless tights to wear with this awesome sundress from avenue. Perfect summer outfit!

    Posted by drop150 | 8 June 2009, 8:56 am
  21. I would go for regular patterned tights. I’d most likely wear them under something unassuming, so when you look my way you see me dressed… “normally” but then “whoa! those are zig-zags!”

    The color? Violet is nice. Light grey might work better as a “you weren’t expecting zebra stripes!” sort of color.

    Posted by Jess | 8 June 2009, 8:58 am
  22. footless tights! olive green! what would i wear them with? um, everything? black boots, denim mini, and every single t-shirt i own (one at a time, not all at once).

    Posted by tadpoledrain | 8 June 2009, 9:33 am
  23. Ooh, fun! I love the Plus Sized Nylon/Lycra tights in Rubine. I have this awesome thrifted wool shirtdress that they’d look great with.

    Posted by Sarah | 8 June 2009, 10:44 am
  24. My favourite colours are either Rust or Maroon. Hard to decide between the two. Footless though, because 1, they’re easier to dance in and 2, I hate my toes being all squashed up. They’d work SO well with my red/orange bellydance outfit too.

    Posted by Kaz | 8 June 2009, 11:11 am
  25. yay! i love the footless in scout green. of course in the new plus size lycra. i love that color with grey, red, almost anything!

    Posted by mollie | 8 June 2009, 11:14 am
  26. I like violet and emerald, probably the footed style. (Footless tights look weird to me, unless your shoe comes above where they stop.)

    What would I wear them with? Probably a flowy, knee-length black skirt. Might even wear them with shorts.

    Posted by KellyK | 8 June 2009, 11:32 am
  27. I love Brown.
    I would wear it to work underneath a black, above-the-knee pencil skirt and a brown cleavage-bearing blouse.
    I prefer leggings as a stocking style.

    Posted by CAK | 8 June 2009, 11:48 am
  28. Oh wow, I just thrifted a pair of red plaid shorts that would look amazing with either the olive green or gold full-length tights. (Somehow short-shorts seem less indecent when I wear them with tights!) I’d probably finish the whole outfit with a pair of black Docs for some serious 1993 style.

    Posted by Lizzie | 8 June 2009, 11:54 am
  29. My favorite color is purple. I would sport the solid purple tights with a denim skirt, a tshirt and boots.

    Posted by Medina | 8 June 2009, 11:57 am
  30. i adore the scout green footless tights, as well as the violet and magenta. i found at the consignment store an abby z silk sleeveless dress to rock with these this summer. i’m all about the color for fat women, especially women of Color, and have liberated my upper arms this year!

    good luck to everyone!

    Posted by bianca | 8 June 2009, 12:17 pm
  31. I love the red Nylon/Lyrca tights. I would wear them with my favorite black shirtdress.

    Posted by Meghan | 8 June 2009, 12:38 pm
  32. Oh, my. So many tights. From a strictly practical point of view, I would have to get the black and red-striped tights, because I have worn mine to shreds over the last four years. I cut the legs off anyway, and wear them with a black garter belt under a poofy net skirt and a top hat, and then I am instant promo queen when I hand out fliers for our next show.

    Posted by bigmovesbabe | 8 June 2009, 12:46 pm
  33. I love this giveaway! More more!
    My favorite would have to be the teal plus size nylon/lycra footless tights. I would wear some kind of sassy dress from Torrid, maybe something in pink or dark red. Hot!

    Posted by Sarah | 8 June 2009, 12:49 pm
  34. Teal microfiber FTW!

    Posted by Susie | 8 June 2009, 1:11 pm
  35. Oooh… I’d be all over the aqua, regular style w/feet, to wear with my two fabulous sundresses until the weather warms up here in frigid-land.

    Posted by Melete | 8 June 2009, 2:27 pm
  36. I can’t resist the contest either. I would adore the fishnet tights (I’m not sure whether I’d need plus or not, I’m right on the weight border) in Royal Blue. I would wear them with a black dress or under jean shorts, or under this really cute blue and black patterned skirt I have.

    Posted by Fat Angie | 8 June 2009, 2:54 pm
  37. I’m dying to own some of their tights, but my clothes budget is at zero. My favorite color and style are the Plus Sized Nylon/Lycra Footless Tights, and I’ll be lame and say that I want them in charcoal.

    I would wear them with all of the dresses I’m going to be sewing for fall.


    Posted by Limor | 8 June 2009, 3:04 pm
  38. Hello.

    I posted about the promo here: http://brigidkeely.com/wordpress/?p=300 (which also cross posts to live journal and dreamwidth) and also retweeted (twitter name brigidkeely).

    My top two picks would be black and red striped tights or the maroon tights. The striped ones I’d wear with any of the many black dresses and skirts I own, the maroon ones I’d wear specifically with this awesome green and maroon dress I thrifted.

    This is a really cool promo.

    Posted by Brigid | 8 June 2009, 3:38 pm
  39. Ohh awsome giveaway! My favourite is the plus sized black and purple striped tights. I’d have to say I’d wear them with everything, but I have a dark purple gown that’s very classy evening gownish that I’d wear them with :)

    Posted by Heather | 8 June 2009, 4:18 pm
  40. Ooh! I’ve been dying for a navy pair. :) I have a couple awesome dresses (pea green, black, teal paisley) that I would totally pair them with.

    Posted by Jess | 8 June 2009, 4:25 pm
  41. Footless tights in pastel mint or aqua. I’ve got a skirt I made that is aching for some extra color underneath. And footless because then I can wear flip flips.

    Posted by Alyce | 8 June 2009, 4:29 pm
  42. <33 love tights :)
    how've you been darling?

    Posted by miranda | 8 June 2009, 6:53 pm
  43. I would love some fishnet (plus size obviously) in Maroon :) sooo pretty :)

    Posted by Kasandra Smith | 8 June 2009, 7:43 pm
  44. I am quite taken with both the orange and red colors. Nylon/Lycra with feet please. I’d wear them with my new denim skirt that isn’t really new anymore but hasn’t been worn because I don’t own any tights that fit! D:

    I retweeted :D

    Checking out the rest of the blog now.

    Posted by Reggie | 9 June 2009, 1:08 am
  45. I like the footless nylon/lycra ones – in mocha or grey. I actually would like some specifically so i can wear skirts in the winter!. I THINK I wear a size “E”.

    Posted by librarychair | 9 June 2009, 8:14 am
  46. This would be a great prize!

    Posted by Nikole | 9 June 2009, 8:14 am
  47. Oh man. some new tights would really make my week!

    Posted by bianca | 9 June 2009, 11:14 am
  48. This would be awesome! I’d like to be old school and get black fishnet tights to wear with my grey wool skirt.

    Posted by Suniverse | 9 June 2009, 5:13 pm
  49. I would wear a navy pair with a classic black shirt dress. I think navy and black is so chic!!

    Posted by Andrea | 9 June 2009, 8:38 pm
  50. I just bought a purple, yellow and white sundress. I would get the Rubine footless tights (a gorgeous shade of purple) to go with this outfit – CAN YOU SAY SCORCHING?

    Posted by Shawna | 9 June 2009, 9:45 pm
  51. What a great giveaway! I’d love to have the Nylon/Lycra MicroFiber Solid Color Tights in neon yellow. I’d want to pair them with all my boring black/white/grey outfits to add a pop of neon color! They’d be so fun for the summer!

    Posted by Ashley K | 11 June 2009, 2:03 pm
  52. I Twittered about your contest here:

    Posted by Ashley K | 11 June 2009, 2:04 pm
  53. A look I’ve wanted to try but haven’t worked up the gumption yet — not all that interested in calling attention to my potato-picking peasant legs — is layering fishnets over semi-sheer hose.

    Maybe the hose would prevent the string-wrapped meat look otherwise created by fishnets?

    Black on black seems like obvious choice, but I’m more curious about how a jewel-tone such as WLC’s Rubine or Royal would look over black.


    Posted by Wooga | 11 June 2009, 4:43 pm
  54. I love the Spruce Green and Rubine colors in the tights. I have no clue what I’d wear them with, but it would give me a chance to wear a skirt for more than once a year!!!

    Posted by BrieCS | 11 June 2009, 6:55 pm
  55. I would get the Silver Gold Rain tights, and I’d wear them with my favorite little black dress from Target. I also tweeted @pfunkem

    Posted by cate | 12 June 2009, 8:24 am
  56. I love this giveaway! Ok, my favorite tights are the ones in Spruce Green. :)

  57. Oh, and by the way — LOVE your dresses.

    Posted by puglyfeet | 13 June 2009, 8:12 pm
  58. this would be aweseome. to win some! I’d love to expand my wardrobe with some COLOR!

    Posted by beth | 15 June 2009, 10:20 pm
  59. I’m a WLC virgin, but after seeing your purple footless ones on fatshionista, I think I’d like to try some bright ones like that. Maybe a different color.

  61. Count as entry for Monkeyselina on LJ. Waiting on her info.

    Posted by Danielle | 17 June 2009, 6:51 am
  62. thanks for the giveaway! i’d love a red or magenta pair, but they’re all gorgeous. i think i’d have to sport them with a cute denim skirt and mary janes – which would mean an excuse for more shopping!

    Posted by roohbaroo | 17 June 2009, 1:22 pm
  63. I really like the plain black footless tights. I’ve been having a really, really hard time finding them in my size and I need a pair for my best friend’s wedding, otherwise I don’t know what I’ll do with my legs! I have the biggest calves ever (but I’m still sexy. whatev.)

    Posted by Sierra | 17 June 2009, 10:19 pm
  64. I’m a fan of the nylon/lycra tights – and that new electric blue color is calling to me so much. I want the fishnets but until they expand the size range, alas. I hear tell they are working on the stripey ones though so in a perfect world, I’d have stripey tights in electric blue and black that I could wear with a ruffly goth Lolita dress that I have and platform Mary Janes.

    Also, I’ve posted at The Rotund about your contest!

    Posted by therotund | 19 June 2009, 9:59 am
  65. I would love to try a pair of tights from them! I’ve wanted to for a while, but am still gun-shy about buying clothes online. (I have recently been better at overcoming this, though!)

    Posted by evilsciencechick | 19 June 2009, 11:06 am
  66. i love the solid color tights in Violet. Any shade of purple is IT for me right now.

    Posted by Jess E | 19 June 2009, 11:15 am
  67. I want the orchid pink footless tights!

    Posted by Diana | 19 June 2009, 11:35 am
  68. Although my go-to colors are charcoal grey and fuchsia, right now I am longing for a pair of kelly green fishnets to wear with my new black-and-white cotton floral shirtwaist dress and wide homemade obi belt.

    Posted by angela-la-la | 19 June 2009, 11:41 am
  69. My favourite colour from WLC has got to be the Turquoise. I wear the nylon/spandex footed tights with just about everything – the orange ones with a Size Queen Campbells pork and beans wrap skirt, turquoise with my favourite fushia shirt dress (’cause what could be better than turquoise and fushia?) or any of them with the myriad black dresses in my closet.

    ‘kay, now I need to get more – Amethyst, mmmmm… Electric blue….

    Posted by Sara | 19 June 2009, 11:47 am
  70. Oooh, I want the white-striped tights in violet! They could do double-duty with my denim skirt *and* my Halloween costume!

    Posted by Chelsea | 19 June 2009, 12:01 pm
  71. I love the fuscia tights! So pretty!

    Posted by Madeleine | 19 June 2009, 12:10 pm
  72. I seriously want some black footless tights…and I tweeted you. Id wear them with a long tshirt and go for lovely strolls along the beach walkway…ahhh.

    Posted by coolred38 | 19 June 2009, 12:10 pm
  73. I love the Maroon and Purple tights, but I lust after the Olive Green ones in the solid tight.

    I generally wear my tights with an ankle-length Lane Bryant fishtail jean skirt, and my Fluevog boots. So much love.

    Posted by neeuqdrazil | 19 June 2009, 12:32 pm
  74. I’d go with Rubine solid tights. I’m crocheting a skirt that would match them almost perfectly!

    Posted by Meowser | 19 June 2009, 5:39 pm
  75. My favorite is the turquoise footed tights, especially with a little black dress and bold silver accessories!

  89. I love the bright colors. A friend is visiting me for adventures in Chicago. Since we’re broke we’re going to do some performance art for money on the streets. The outfit I’d wear?..

    Hot Pink Nylon/Lyrcas, with a lacy black skirt, corset and patent pink Dr. Martens. A good way to get noticed, so we can make some money and have an adventure when we’re very broke– And look nice doing it.
