Stripey Goodness

Today's outfit felt very daring! Red and burgundy together! Cats are sleeping with dogs!
Heh, but I digress. I got these fabulous tights and loved how all the colours went together and just started pulling colours out.

See? Stripes!
This is the dress I didn't wear for so long, as I moaned about here (I got rid of those shoes, by the way). The red top is new - I've stocked up on long-sleeved thin t-shirt tops lately.

Here's a better look at the stripey goodness:
I get a giggle out of the feet in them. It's just so Muppet-y. The necklace is from the 50s - it's my grandma's that she gave me when I was in my teens. Stuff about it here. And these are my Christmas earrings from L.

Dress (Banana Republic), top (Press), tights (Hue), boots (Miz Mooz), necklace (Lisner, Grandma J's, vintage 60s), earrings (Plum, gift from L).


  1. HEE, those tights are the best. I'm glad you went for it with red and burgundy at last; they work great together for you!

  2. Beautiful, beautiful jewelry. Love it. And I REALLY like the red and burgundy together. That's something I might try myself. :)

  3. Love the stripey goodness! They are just so cool. The dress is so pretty. I really like how the jewelry compliments each other without being matchy.

  4. If I hadn't SEEN it, I wouldn't have BELIEVED it!

    Do they call this "breaking the ice"?

  5. Oh it's too wild! RED and BURGUNDY? How do they work so nice together, when my mother always told me never red and pink together, ever! The tights knew better, and so did you!

  6. Kristen, they are totally thick and wooly too - I felt so daring doing this colour mix! Thanks!

    Hi, Suz, thanks for commenting, and for your kind words. Give the colour combo a try!

    Thanks, Sal, me too.

    Alison, thanks! I felt very cool all day.

    Ha, you are so right, Rebecca!

    Sherylyn, I know! It's insane! Secretly, I think ALL colours go together.

  7. I love the tights - so fun! The dress is beautiful on you, too.

  8. Love it! I posted outfits with "stripes" as my inspirational outfit of the week. You wear them well!
