Base colours

Both of these outfits started off with these cranberry tights as the base colour, they are are a teeny bit too long and give me wrinkly ankles (pet hate anyone?) which means constantly having to hitch them up. Very attractive I know. The first outfit is my favourite of the two. The ruffley cropped top is interesting to wear when it's windy because the ruffles keep flying up!

Flicking through some Japanese magazines, I was reminded of the stunning Anna Sui S/S ad campaign featuring the beautiful, Du Juan. I love the rich oranges of the campaign and Du Juan looks positively doll like. Click on it for a bigger pic!

  7. cool combos for sure. oh, i have my stories with my black thigh highs this winter. I thought they were so cute to have. Then they'd ride down at the strangest moments at work. Yeah, wear those at home..I'm sure peeps were thinking.

    Thanks so much for the note. Thank you for reading too. & thank you for inspiring me with your wardrobe, too.

  42. Love how you've paired the cranberry tights with non-obvious colours - they look great! Also ankle wrinkles = not good. It's even worse if they are skin coloured tights because then you just look like you have the legs of a 90 year old. :) x
