It's always the way...


OK, so I realised that I am a bit of an idiot. I keep writing on here about how I want something floaty and lacy and suitably girly to wear with this vest. Well? I realised that months and months ago, I owned the very thing. The catch? I dyed it blue! I've got to admit that blue lace is far more unique so it's not all bad.

I was chatting to Selina (aka Flying Saucer) on twitter and we both ordered the Henry Holland alphabet tights (looks like we both share an unhealthy liking for fun tights) I can't wait for them to arrive! I also really like the look of the ones on the right which are the Burn-out rose tights from Urban outfitters...one pair at a time I think!

  40. Ahh, gorgeous blue lace! You're right, blue is definitely more unique and it goes so well with the vest (love the belt as well). Very envious of the tights you bought... I have a weakness for patterned black ones. I might have to check out the House of Holland ones...

    P.S. You should definitely check out Dover Street Market. I can't afford anything there either, but it's just a really fun place to browse. They do have some store exclusive items there (tees, bags etc.) that are cheaper than the mainline stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  51. o wow those alphabet tights are so cool. Very very different from how I imagined! I was thinking they'd be colorful and not see through. Kinda like sesame street. I like the real version SO much better.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ahhh those Henry Holland tights are incredible.... I'm so craving it right now but shipping to 'rest of the world' costs just as much as the item?! O_O Ouchhhh...

    I love how the lace dress has been dyed such a lovely color!! How did you do it? What sort of dye did you use? I feel like dye-ing a skirt of mine but not too sure how to go about doing so...

    Anyway the lace and leather combi rocks on you!!
