but the fire is so delightful

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I used the ole measuring-tape-as-belt trick the other day. I'm also slowly figuring out how to wear the American Apparel two-tone tights. Black and white seem to not be a problem, considering I wear them way too much, but I've always struggled with the highlighter/crossing guard ones. I will let these photos I found on Stephanie's blog guide my way.

I want to take this chick out to tea, and we can discuss Where the Wild Things Are crowns and our shared love of wearing doily-like clothing.Anyways, this was my outfit. I don't know what made me decide to creepily showcase a squash and pumpkin while taking these pictures but we'll just say it's a goodbye to fall, since after Thanksgiving=WINTER. Apparently some people have been spreading the rumor that winter doesn't start until the 21st. ALL LIES. LIES, I TELL YOU.secondhand mozart tee. mom's measuring tape. vintage skirt. american apparel tights.

This post is scheduled, as I'm currently out of town for the weekend. So long faretheewell pip pip cheerio I'll be back sooooon! Oh, Oliver.

Isabel said...

Hahaha! That pumpkin looks grey, its freaking me out a little.

Sunset said...

Hahah. Love that outfit, the tights work well. But I think you can definitely pull off not even bothering to match the tights... like just adding them to an outfit last.

joana said...

Voodoo Child said...

You are killing it with those tights. I couldn't pull that off, that is for sure. Love the last face!

The measuring tape doesn't go with the rest of the outfit.

HILARIOUS TAVI! And really, I think, no matter what, your tights are awesome. I actually was thinking of buying them and then you had to go and snatch em up. Now, even if I do get them theyll still be the Tavi tights. DAMN YOU. :P :P :P :P :P

Can I have your mozart tee, please?

yoncto said...

m.elizabeth said...

ahhaha such a good expression in the last picture. the tights look kickass, you pull them off well.. i was iffy on the skirt with the bright colors AND the tights all neon fab that they are.. but the more I look at it, the more I like it, it kind of tones each other down and it makes sense. and nice squash
