Whodathunkit

Jacket, Esley. Dress, London Times. Guatemalan belt, thrifted. Tights, Express. Boots, Nine West. Purse, Prague (thrifted). Ring, Silpada.

I wouldn’t normally have thought to combine purple and blue-green, but I like the way the color mix turned out. I originally tried this outfit with the black version of this dress, and my black pirate boots, but it came off a little hooker-ish. Swapping out the colors and boots made it more quirky and less “you lookin' for a date?”

There is a pair of Stilleto heeled- point toed black boots on redtagcrazy.com . Made me think of you when I saw your wishlist. They are pretty cool. You just have to wait for them to come up. :S If you do buy there please use my email barefootinboots at gmail dot com as the promo code. (We both get free money!)

Good luck! I will keep my eye out for them.

That's a great outfit! It's always gratifying to see a fellow lady in skirts and dresses. It seems to me that too many women today find it easier just to slip into a pair of pants every day. I LOVE my skirts and dresses and wear them far more than jeans/pants...to me they are JUST as comfy...and speaking personally, a darn sight more
attractive! :-)

ooo! Did you double up on tights or is that one pair of colored, patterned tights? I never thought of it before, but one could easily double up on tights and have colors under fishnets, for example.

A - I wore a pair of nude (dance) tights under the open weave tights for warmth.

I love the stitched purse, that was quite a find! The brown leather boots are the perfect compliment to it.

You are a genius.
