The lovely ladies from Falke have sent me these Alizee Tights and I am smitten! Sorry to give away the ending already but I can’t help it! I’m in love.
The Alizee tights are the softest and most comfortable tights I’ve ever worn. They are so detailed and beautiful, the other stockings in my drawer are getting jealous! Anyway, enough of my loving worship, here’s the review!
