I love a chic pair of tights! My style mostly revolves around dresses, skirts, and shorts, and since in the Netherlands the weather almost never allows for bare legs, tights are an essential part of my wardrobe. Not any kind of tights though. I’m talking about beautifully designed tights, created to last and give any outfit a more playful and romantic look. Does it sound too Parisian? That’s because it is. Let me tell you about my love story with Gambettes!
I do love a chic pair of tights and I style them all the time. They’re perfect for the office, to go out on the weekend, to go to a party, to go to the cinema, to go on a date… Beautifull tights can be the perfect finish to almost any look. Before I knew about Gambettes I used to hop from store to store searching for new designs, and because I use my bicycle to get to most places, my tights never last too long (yep, I’m still to know if it is indeed cheaper to take the bus instead of the bike based on the destruction rate of my tights every time I need to park my bike). Finding perfect tights was an expensive and time-consuming process back then. Not anymore!
Get 20% off on your 1st Gambettes box with the code GAMBETTESCATIA
A few months ago I found out about Gambettes and never looked back. Gambettes are a subscription box service, dedicated exclusively to tights directly from Paris. The concept is quite simple, once you’ve signed up for the subscription, you receive every month 2 beautiful pairs of tights on your mailbox. I’ve loved every single box since signing up. The designs are lovely, very ‘Parisian chic’ and the tights, made in Italy, are of an extremely good quality which allows me to get a fair use of them before they get worn. To make things even better, you can get it all without breaking the bank. The subscription is only EUR 15,90 per month, which already includes international shipping!
I have never signed up for a subscription box before and had my doubts at first. I think my main concern with subscriptions is always the commitment side of it. What if I wouldn’t like it, what if I didn’t need it after a couple months? Gambettes have you covered on every aspect, making it a really pleasant experience. After reading carefully through terms and conditions I got to know that I could pause or cancel my subscription at any time, which made me feel much better. So I decided to give it a try.
The boxes are sent from September to May. Through the summer months, the delivery of boxes and payment is suspended since there’s in principle no need for tights during that period. During the rest of the year, my boxes usually arrive within the first two weeks of the month.
I’m always waiting for my boxes in anticipation! It’s always so exciting to open a new box and see which new tights I’ll get to play with. And to make sure you’re completely covered, they’ll send you some basic opaque black ones once in a while too!
Having my subscription box with Gambettes makes life so much easier! I never run out of tights. In fact, I have now quite a lovely collection of diverse designs, perfect for any occasion. Every day feels like a special day when I have my Gambettes on. For me, this is the subscription box that I’ll be sticking to. I never got a pair of tights I didn’t like and I’ve been so surprised at how lovely the designs can be, these are usually targetted at the season. In December the package was filled with a shiny version for Christmas and a beautiful party design for New Year’s Eve!
Over the last months, I’ve got the chance to try the subscription and I’ve been wearing my Gambettes non-stop (see here and here, for example). I got a lot of compliments and questions about where I bought my tights and I told some of you that I was working on a little something to give you a chance to try it yourself too. So I’m really pleased to be teaming with Gambettes to give you 20% off on your first box when you subscribe. Simply enter the code GAMBETTESCATIA et voilá! If you’re a tights lover like me I’m sure you will never look back!
