queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

Ever have one of those days when nothing seems quite right and you just can’t put your finger on what it is? Yeah, that was my day today. Sometimes I just feel like I’m off my game, fashion-wise, and this was definitely one of those times. I decided later that it was the proportions of this outfit that were off – in an ideal world, the bra/corset/bustier would be a bit longer, the t-shirt would be long enough to be a real dress, and I would figure out how to wear these damn leggings. I’ve come to the conclusion that leggings-as-pants look good on some people, just not me.

Enough with the self-pity, though – on a lighter note, tonight is Fashion’s Night Out, and I’m sitting at home reading all the articles and tweets and everything about it and wishing I could be there…it seems like an amazing event to be a part of.
And Fashion Week is here! Well, not here, but you know… in New York. And other places, but New York comes first. I’m looking forward to it.

Can you tell I’m tired? Nothing I write is making any sense. But I promise to get some sleep and wear an awesome outfit tomorrow and take good, non-weirdly-lit photos. I promise.

i commend you for taking that risk though! especially with underwear as outerwear, which can be tricky. my rule for wearing leggings as pants is to wear a shirt long enough to cover up the naughty bits :D 'cause the potential for camel toe is too great.
queenelizabeth on September 16
haha yeah the camel toe is a pretty important factor...although in this case it was more about the proportions looking weird because of the shirt's length. but i've already planned out an outfit with this bra for tomorrow, hopefully it'll go better! :)

mhh. the crop bustier might have looked better with a blazer...but the concept is very pretty (:

I love how you matched all of this!

amazing ! i love your leggings !
plastikneon on September 11
The leggings are great! But I see how they'd be hard to match, usually the pieces that jump out to me the most in stores are the ones I have the hardest time wearing. I think this looks nice! Maybe try with a long white tank? Okay and about the camera...haha: I got a DSLR D60 last I've been using that. But I'm thinking of maybe doing a post in the future on some camera tips?
queenelizabeth on September 14
Yeah I think a long white tank would've look cool with this, unfortunately I don't have one :P and I think a post on camera tips would be a great idea, your photos always come out looking great!

i think leggings as pants are THE best, the shirt should of been a little bit tighter but still looks great...

But I think it's really easy to over-think things when you're always trying to be on top of your game. If you never experiment, it's never interesting, right? I dunno, I think this look is kind of refreshing because it doesn't look overly-styled, ya know?
queenelizabeth on September 14
Yeah I guess you've got a point - sometimes my experiments flop, but sometimes they work out! as for it not being over-styled, I try out the whole "effortless chic" thing a lot, but I think elaborate crazy outfits just suit me better :)

I love that bustier and the organish/nude color of it. I agree that if the shirt were longer it may flow better, but I think it looks good how you have it here too.
queenelizabeth on September 14
thanks! it's good to hear feedback and constructive criticism, I'm definitely going to try a longer shirt/other ideas next time.

Cute! I love the lace bra over the shirt.
