I’ve been making an effort to wear more dresses and skirts lately. When winter rolls in, I have a tendency to hang out in jeans and pants because they’re warmer. But I did a wardrobe clear out last week and realised that I’ve got a drawer filled with stockings and tights that I just don’t wear often enough. So I’m trying to branch out in my winter wardrobe.
– Red dress from Free Fusion at Target
– Black cardigan with red flowers (swiped from my friend Kate’s wardrobe)
– Black herringbone tights from Big W.
– Red and black satin stilettos (thrifted)
– Giant black flower ring (gift from my parents)
-Red rose stud earrings
I am a huge fan of herringbone tights. They’re a great pattern which lengthens the legs and looks a tiny bit classier than fishnets. They’re perfect for pairing with vintage outfits or for dressing up an otherwise plain dress. If you like to wear all-black outfits, textured tights are a great way to break up your ensembles and add a little bit of pizazz.
Another reason that I’m sticking with skirts and dresses is that I’ve lost quite a lot of weight lately. Not intentionally, but I’ve been under a lot of stress and I tend to shed kilos like crazy when I’m under pressure. My appetite has disappeared too, and I seem to be suffering a case of break-up-orexia. It really sucks because all of my pants are now fitting too loose. Hopefully I’ll be back to my usual size soon. I’m not loving being so teeny-weenie.
