Floral Legs

More of my weekend shopping loot! Today, it's this new ultra-thin silk and cashmere sweater ($18), a necklace and ring from the $10 grab bag, and these crazy-ass tights:
Can you believe people actually thought that a) those were tattoos and b) I had painted the roses on my legs? Uh, yeah.

I really like the sleeves on the top - this is the pink top I've been looking for for ages!
The ring is a nice simple hunk of shiny, and the necklace will be good layered with some pearls or something.

The stuff:
Those ar the tights at the bottom so you can see that they have a bit of purple in them. Of course, I had to do purple shoes!

Sweater (Esprit, consignment), skirt (Kensie), tights (Hue), shoes (Friis and Co., gift from L), necklace/ring (consignment), earrings (Aldo Accessories).

  1. I love purple, the shoes rock and I am in love with the tights. I probably would be too much of a "wuss" to wear them, but my inner self wants to wear them EVERYWHERE. Great style as always!

  5. That pink is soooo pretty on you; it is absolutely the perfect pink! It can be such a hard color to get the right tone for, but when you do, you hit the jackpot! I am still searching for my perfect pink...

  11. Thanks, Lorena! Oh, you should wear your funky tights! If you are nervous, keep the rest of your outfit very conservative. Heh, yeah, I should have. ;)

  12. Oh wow, I LOVE the shape of that top, it was so worth waiting for. And the heels....perfection! You really did a great job pairing the tights too -- I have a feeling those could be tricky...Anyway, I love it!

  13. Thanks, Julia, I do too! Funny, every pink top I've found has been from the same season Esprit line (must've been a not-so-successful one). Ah, thanks - the tights *were* tricky - trying not to look too clownish.
