Outfit: Green tights

Dress: Delia’s, thrifted

Tights: Merona

Shoes: Sofft

I have a backlog of December outfit posts – I take them, but then run out of time to post them on the blog!  I will get to them eventually, but in the meantime here is what I actually wore today.

This outfit is very me – it combines an empire waist, a fun print, and a bright color!  I saw this dress at the thrift on Tuesday, and I ran for it like a mad woman (though there was no one else shopping!)  I washed it, and wore it the very next day to a holiday party.  This was the perfect dress to wear while consuming my own weight in pretzel bread and chardonnay (there was other food, but I like to stick to the basics, you know?)  That was our last party of the season (I doubt we will be celebrating New Year’s with anyone who isn’t a cat) and I’m glad for the time to breathe a bit!

  1. This is such a cute outfit! I am so impressed with your previous post and all of the things you’ve sewn (and blogged!!) this year. And I had to laugh at your comment about eating your weight in pretzel bread and chardonnay – that’s right up my alley of the types of things I like to indulge in. Forget the holiday cookies and sweets – sign me up for the wine and the bread and cashews! Happy New Year!

    You’ve inspired me to try thrifting again. I got 3 semi-casual blazers at Salvation Army for $10 yesterday! One needed two buttons sewn back on (buttons were still there), another was fine, and the third needed a really good wash. Overall, much more satisfactory than paying $50-100 for each one. I’m not to the point of being able to adjust the sizing on thrifted clothing yet though…

  3. I love the way that colored tights look but I can’t seem to get myself to buy any. I’m such a black tights and black shoes type of girl, I find it hard. I also can’t figure out which color will be the most useful in my wardrobe as I don’t wear a lot of primary or secondary colors and that is what most tight company’s sell. Seen any colored but more muted colors around?

    I love the tights … and your outfits! Thanks for sharing: you’ve been really inspriring me to think about what I wear and how I wear it. Which I’ve never done before. Turns out, it’s lots of fun.
