Red Argyle and Black Sequins

L and I are headed out to see the new Star Wars movie - I am a HUGE fan, so I'm fangirling all over the place. Now! I want to see it now! 
Oh, and I did wear a lot of red today.

  • Blazer - Harve Bernard, thrifted; first seen here in April with much 80s
  • Top (not very visible) - Plum, consignment; first worn here earlier this month with burgundy and houndstooth
  • Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last seen here in September 2014 with aqua and orange and white

And sequins! I'm shocked that it's been over a year since I wore this skirt - last time, I complained that the little plastic rectangular sequins tore up the back of my (bare) legs. This time, I'm complaining that they made the back of my knees all bally - my tights are not ruined, but I'll be wearing a longer skirt with them from now on.
The tights are cool. I like a funky leg.

The stuff:
Easy shoes for an easy day.

  • Earrings - Glee

And I'm off! May the Force be with you...always.


  1. Hope you enjoy the movie! :)

    It's a shame that the skirt wasn't so kind to your tights, as they are lovely tights and a lovely skirt. It's never fun when something so pretty and fun to wear turns out to be so impractical!

  2. Ooh, those tights are cute. Did you enjoy the movie? Does Spock die? :-)

  3. Enjoy! We're going to see it on Christmas day, can't wait. Love the festive reds and those tights are too cool. xox


  4. Loved the tights!
    I went to see the Starwars film over the weekend and I cannot tell you how I felt at the beginning when the text began appearing on the screen, or the feeling of the music.. and when I saw Han Solo it was like I had not seen my long lost friends in years.... :) Hope you enjoyed the film.

  5. Oooooh, love those argyle tights! You have a fabulous pair of pins already but they look even more fabulous in these.
    I know exactly what you mean about the skirt. I always think sequins look great but I find they snag on EVERYTHING - well they always do when I wear them!
    Hope the movie lived up to your expectations!

  6. I love a pair of funky tights too, and those are very cool! I have a sequinned jacket that I rarely wear, but when I do, the damn things catch on everything.

  7. Oh Sheila, you know how I love patterned tights, but pairing with a sequinned skirt is something I've yet to try! To be inspired by other's creativity, ah, it's grand. I too had a skirt which messed up every pair of tights, until I finally had to admitted defeat and gave it away.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year
