calivintage 's Thoughts:

a while back i was mentioning how my wardrobe is sorely lacking color. a lovely lady (melongirl) suggested that a simple, inexpensive way to add a pop of color is to buy colored tights! seriously, so true. i could have paired this outfit with any color tights, even floral (that would be especially sweet) and it would add just a touch of interest!

the shoes/tights combo was inspired by an incredible outfit worn by anouck lepere last year. she is the reason i’ve gotten obsessed with little floral dresses! anyway, i was reminded of how much i love love loved that outfit after it sprung up on a blog post here.

so this is my “lounge chic” outfit. comfortable enough for slinking around the house, but stylish enough that i can throw on a pair of heels and go out on the town!

i’m digging this vintage spandex dress from express. i didn’t show it in the pictures, but it falls off the shoulders, very sexy. the only thing is that if i’m going to continue wearing these little spandex dresses, i need to invest in a gym membership, or at least a pair of spanx. haha!

red stockings and dress look so fab but i was thinking if white cardigans are better that the blue though.
