If you've ever worn fishnet stockings, chances are you know how much of a b*tch they can be to wear. Sure, they look sexy and grungy and sometimes can be the perfect addition to your outfit. They are the ideal mix of sweet and sexy, that is, until you RIP THEM.
You know the drill: You're standing on a table dancing and whoops some girl with a cocktail rings decides to get her hand stuck on them when she gets up to leave the club. Maybe you're swaying to a song at a bar and they get caught on a random branch. Maybe you rip them your own damn self by getting some piece of jewelry caught on them. Womp.
Typically, you would just throw them away, since you can't sew them back together without them looking awful. They're usually cheap enough so eh, whatever.
That is unless you're Lirika Matoshi, goddess of all things sequined and fishnet-y.
Matoshi designs drop-dead gorgeous fishnets using items like sequins, gems, beads, and other embellishments. One of her latest posts is a photo of fishnets with holes in them that are bordered with sequins and floral gems. The caption reads "perfect imperfections," which lets us know they were a pair that was ripped and, well, not at their best. Now, they are absolutely amazing.
She has equally beautiful designs of the non-ripped variety as well, including these peachy tights with delicate little blush-colored stars on them.
Then there are one of her absolute best, the Tutti Fruity, which she designed to make look like the gems were different-colored fruit.
The best news? If you're looking to get your hands on a pair of your own sequined fishnet tights by Matoshi, you can do so by hitting up her Etsy shop. Be warned, though, these babies will cost you a pretty penny. Her Peach Starry Net stockings (pictured above) will run you $150 and the Tutti Fruity tights will cost you $250.
If you've got a big shindig coming up and want to make a fashion statement then, hey, why not make the investment? You'll definitely be standing out of the crowd thanks to Matoshi's incredible designs.
Yes, even if your stockings are ripped.
