tights binge


 teal tights=love


in an effort to make outfit pictures more interesting... may i present jump shots! well, balancing-on-one-leg-while-wearing-heels shots, just as difficult and should therefore receive the same applause. 

yes, i think we all agree balancing on one foot in heels is hard.


aaaaand the obligatory close-ups.


 tank top: target
skirt: marshall's
tights: lord and taylor
cardigan: thrifted (originally american eagle)
necklace: made by me
shoes: square 12, originally "bronze" dyed black by me

for some reason i felt very gossip-girl-esque in this. it's not even really that preppy, either... and i think having teal legs may have been one of my subconscious life goals (you mean you don't have those? ;)). i just felt so accomplished when i wore them. and speaking of tights, i went on a tights buying spree, which resulted in these, some really pretty black sheers from lord and taylor (thank you, fritha louise, for proving once and for all sheer tights are for daytime too), and then a whole bunch from payless.

from the left to right, argyle, houndstooth, and plain black. i bought plum ones, too. unfortunately, they had a hole when i took them out of the package. which, when i decided to wear them anyway (never said i was good at judgement calls), expanded into a giant gash on my thigh. :(

oh, and i know i haven't posted in a while. but i'm going to skip the whole "i'm such a bad blogger" thing (even though it's true) cos i hate it when other bloggers apologize for having lives. (and i'm not saying that bloggers don't have lives! i just meant that sometimes it's more important/crazy/fun/interesting to be in the "real world" instead of in front of a computer screen...) anyway, last week at our school was homecoming, so lots of school spirit, dancing, dressing up, ect! very fun. :) pictures will be posted at a later date, i promise. *this is where you roll your eyes and say "suuure you will" in a sarcastic voice*

and i forgot to include this in the fashion week post, but i loved the entire viktor and rolf collection. it was totally insane.

i thought it was funny how their theme was "cutting back," and instead of going the recession-friendly route, they took it in a more literal way...  :)

and i just collaged my notebooks (using my copiousspare time while i avoid blogging) (just kidding!!) which turned out better than i expected them to. here's a teaser, as i'm rather pleased with them and you can expect more pics soon!


i have a 3-day weekend so i'm especially happy..... :D hope all your weekends are lovely too!

victor and rolf was FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE. like...i want a massive tulle skirt with holes punched through it!!

loving the tights. aren't they just the perfect way to spice up dark fall outfits?

and yes *mandatory applause* i love jumping shots but since i wear heels so often it gets a bit precarious, so i definitely know where you're coming from :-)
