I am so happy to have you back in NYC! The fashionistas are incredible and inspiring, but I prefer the off-the-cuff effortlessness of the anonymous nyc streets! I don’t know what I did every morning before your blog!
This reminds me a lot of some of the looks in Paris at the moment (via Facehunter) with the bright tights. I agree–black would have been too predictable. The bright purple is just enough standout-perfect.
my sister-in-law has always dressed exactly this way and i always thought she looked slightly mad — lovable, but not quite sane. seeing it through your eyes — or maybe just seeing it after reading your blog for awhile now — makes it look so charming and yes, stylish. sorry, deborah! what was i thinking?
Hmm. I have been looking for a distinctive and fun way to wear tights, a decidedly horrendous fashion item however usefull in transitioning summer fashions into fall. I think this is a grreat idea. A subtly patterned tight would also be adorable.
Yes! The blue tights are a perfect popping shock of color here, and to me not retro at all! Well done, Sart! And if you look closely, rafe, you’ll see that they’re not combat boots at all… unless our soldiers in Iraq are wearing fashionable high-heeled lace-up boots!!
