Murder in the City

blued1

This is my first swap with Flock Together's newest member, Lisa, and I can't imagine a better dress. I am never drawn to stripes, but whenever I borrow a striped item, I swoon. This Dorothy Perkins number is no different. Looking at it, it's not that special, but once on, it's rather beautiful. For me, fall = burnt orange tights. When else is orange seemingly appropriate? I also thought blue and orange was a weird combination and I'm sure I match a sports team? But whatever, because I can finally wear tights again.

After class today, I'm going to meet up with the lovely Megan. We're going to work a bit on re-branding her blog, getting a domain name, and other various blog things. I'm excited to help her get closer to her blog aspirations because she has a lot of good ideas. Plus this is totally my favorite kind of thing to do. I'm not an idea girl as much as I'm able to bring other people's visions to life.

Sounds pretty good to me for a Wednesday.

  1. Noticed the subtle matching of your ring to your tights. NICE.

    But dude, this dress? I need to borrow it next. It reminds me of your striped dress since it mixes vertical and horizontal stripes as well.

  2. How fun! And being able to bring others' visions to life is really quite a talent.

  5. Sounds like a good Wednesday indeed and I can't believe you're not a stripes fan!!!! They are so good! Blue and orange are Bronco colors here (ew, football), so I try to stay away, but the burnt orange and navy are far enough away from the bright orange and blue so it totally works!

  6. Wow, that last photo is a stunner! As is the outfit in general :) And like Jen said, nice subtle color-coordination with the ring!

  7. I love it with the vest! My friend just got one and I wasn't really thinking I'd be able to wear something like that...but I really like how you worked it in with a dress.

  8. Orange & Blue is the Broncos!! Haha I know because I lived in Colorado as a kid and that's who we rooted for. I love these tights though! That's one color I don't have. The jean vest is also genius with Lisa's pretty dress. I wish I had any graphic design skills at all, I need to learn! It looks like so much fun.

  20. I love this look and will probably try to copy it soon (hope you don't mind!) Also, I noticed your Avett Brother reference and feel the need to let you know that I will be attending my first concert of theirs in March. AH. I know you've been to about a million of their shows, so I'm sure you understand my excitement!
