Witchy

LBD, London Times. Belt, some department store. Tights, We Love Colors. Lace-up pumps, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Bag, Naturalizer (thrifted and vintage). Autumnal hair clip, made by me!

I felt a little like one of Oz’s wicked witches in these tights and shoes. Everyone at work was staring at me like I had tried to kill Toto. I’ll admit, I have a preference for a witch’s cat. (I have five.)


I’m wearing another of my hair clip creations. This one is crafted of autumn leaves (fabric), natural pheasant feathers, and a puff of red marabou.

You should start selling those hair clips! You're so good at it! I don't care what people say, you look Whitchtastic! I love this look on you! The tights are so fantastic!

This is what I love about you. Yes this is a little, on the crazy side, but you're cool enough to pull it off! Not knowing you personally of course, but again & again you don these fabulously brave outfits that others can only DREAM of pulling off!

A zillion Kudos!!!

You are so brave! I would probably only have the chutzpah to wear tights like those on Hallowe'en. Awesome! And the clip welcomes in autumn too.

What fun tights. Let them stare.

KD said...

Welcome the staring! You are fabulous and so are the tights. And the hair clip. And your outfit in general. Everything is wonderful! I would say "especially the tights" but then I'd start all over agin and end up repeating everything!

Love the tights! You're so great at pulling things together. I would never be able to pull that off as well as you have.

I LOVE this! When the image popped up on my computer, I exclaimed, "OH!" Fabulous.

When I first opened your website I only saw your top half and thought, how quiet for you. Then I saw the tights and wow - you can really wear them.

Awesome tights! And brava for having the chutzpah to wear this to work!

I've gotten a few odd looks from co-workers over the years - but they've come to expect wackiness from me now (I spent my entire Hallowe'en day at work in a Bride of Dracula costume this year).

Good for you!

Kasmira,

Which tights do you order from We Love Colors, the microfiber or the regular? I want to place an order but I'm not sure which ones to get. I'm thinking the microfiber may be more comfortable?

rubyslippers said...

hey, how come you look good in everything! i would look like a clown wearing those tights. i suppose you would say its fun to go crazy once in a while right?:) and i love the hair clip too!

Kasmira said...

laura - my purple tights are the nylon/lycra microfiber solid color tights. The diamond tights didn't have an option on the type of fiber.

The purple tights are great! No sagging, very opaque.

The diamond tights are cute, but, because the diamonds are pieced in, not printed, they don't stretch and recover as well as the solid tights.

Love the hair clip - dizzy at the tights [but they are fun].

My gosh, I finally found someone who shares the same love for hair accessory/hair clip like that!!!! I haven't started to wear them, but I make them, and they are real loud! :)

Toya said...

I just bought those same shoes today - cool!

Scott said...

Kasmira, I have to hand it to you! You ought to become a full-time model or something because these outfits are honestly amazing. This one in particular is extremely catchy, and it's incredibly modest! I hope someday I find a girl that dresses like you and is very sweet! Thank you for your website!
