queenelizabeth 's Thoughts:

I’m seeing plaid everywhere all of a sudden. I know, big surprise, hipsters like plaid, but it takes a while for the trickle-down effect to reach my school. Out of nowhere, a significant chunk of the school (guys and girls) is wearing a plaid flannel shirt. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. But hey, why not be a little different?
(And yes, I wore a plaid shirt last week, but that’s not the point)

I got these tights in November at Savers (they have an incredible tights section – new and in packages, not used. Ick.) and could never figure out how to wear them. But today I just sort of decided to clash and see how it went. For some reason these tights make me think of House of Holland – I think they had some bright pink and purple tartan in a recent collection.

Speaking of which… Fashion Week has started and I’m not paying nearly as much attention as I should. I always resolve to look through all the shows and never actually get around to it… I’m too lazy and it just takes too much time. :(

I never make it through all the collections either. I can usually do a few and then I get burned out on clicking through slideshows. Incredible tights, definitely love all the color in this look (but not at all overdone).

I have tights just like that but they're red instead of pink...(I feel like we have a lot of the same pieces, haha). It takes a while for trends to get to in my town...and now at the college I go to...they are BEYOND behind (the skinny jean trend hasn't even hit the majority of kids.....) Oh well....lol (I really like your outfit b.t.w...haha)

The funny thing is, I was about to wear my blue flapper dress with this instead...which you also own...weird huh? and the good thing about living somewhere a little behind the trends is that you get to look super stylish and cutting-edge! hahaha
