What I Wore (fashion victim)


Recently, two blog buddies (Fiery Finish and Dragonflight Dreams) showcased mustard tights in their outfit posts.  I loved how they both styled an outfit around them.

I knew I had to get my hands on some!!!  Dillards had the perfect pair!

So on Monday, I tried my hand at styling an outfit around them.........


And I think it was met with mixed reviews.

Or maybe it was all in my head.

Regardless, I tried to redeem myself yesterday........


Never mind the hat.

Let's get back to the tights.

When eyes dart directly to the knee area, which happens be sheathed in yellow, that's a problem, right?  Where did I go wrong?

Or is Southwest Missouri just not ready for mustard tights?

  3. I think maybe that dress needed a belt to give you a little more shape? It seems like it should look so cute!

  12. I believe Jamie speaks the truth about some of Springfield's fashion choices. I love the mustard tights. If mustard didn't completely wash me out I'd be rockin' it myself.

  13. I think you look great! (and are probably over-thinking how it seems people reacted). ;) Long live mustard!

    I also love the mint and black in the 2nd outfit. :)

    No, that's exactly what's supposed to happen when you wear bright tights! People notice them :)

  32. I think the mustard yellow tights are perfect!! Don't change a thing, lady! I need to pick up a pair, too. I do have teal, so that's a step in the tights-that-aren't-black-and-safe direction, right? Proud of you for wearing them!

  34. They are all beautiful and fashionable i have to say, and my friends told me they are of good quality as well. I like playing pc games like rs, and i always spend money on rs gold or they say runescape gold, but maybe i will spend more money on these nice things later.
