Annebeth 's Thoughts:

Hiya! I wanted to wear this cute little dress in a different way, so I thought I’d use the collar peeping out from under a sweater! I really like how this outfit came together, but it sucks that I’m blending into the background like this. Oh well, you’ll just have to look a bit closer to appreciate the awesomeness of this stylin’ piece o’ chic yo. Lately I’ve been warming up to shades of brown. I used to hate brown because the most classic browntones like chocolate don’t look good on me at all, but since last fall with its camel trend, I’ve grown to appreciate how sophisticated the different shades of brown can look. Black is fierce and all, but it doesn’t really have any sister shades that allow you to build a ton sur ton look (except maybe grey, but there are few things I find as depressing as black/grey outfits). Brown however can be likened to tan, to orange, to eggplant, to khaki etcetera. You can construct a rich, deep look based on browns. The colors I’m using here are all within that nature color family which makes them work together. Not that I have a problem with clashing colors, really. I mix and match about anything, as long as it doesn’t look boring.

Have I told you guys already I finally decided to go ahead and ombre my hair? I stumbled upon Daphne’s blog, ChocolateChipCouture, and I fell in love with this awesome chick’s style and hair! I emailed her, hoping she had done it herself because I had checked with my hairdresser’s what it would cost to get my hair done and he told me it would be like 90 euros (including a cut) and I was like WHUT R U KIDDIN ME so I decided I’d do it myself, but I needed to build up some courage because bleaching your hair is scary shit. But when Daphne emailed me back that she had in fact done this herself, I was assured I could be a fearless female myself and go ahead and dye my hair for only 5 euros instead of 90.

It makes sense to blend in, because what people wear reflects where people like to go. Also where people go sometimes subtly inspires people. I guess in this case people is you :) I love the color of your tights, I've been wanting some like that for a while now.
