Chiffon Bomb


pleated poppy


leather jacket: marshall's, skirt: marshall's, sweater: pacsun, yellow tights: asos, oxford heels: thrifted

Eeeek I can't hold it in. I want to own these tights, I want to rock them, and rock them good, but I can't get my mind out of the oompa loompa leg gutter. Maybe it was the lighting, maybe it was the way I styled them. They are quite fun, but may take some getting used to.

Style Talk || Wednesday

Chiffon is the new cotton. (Don't tell the cotton people I said that, they're trying so hard with their fancy Kate Bosworth and Zoey Deschanel commercials.) I've picked up a few oversized cotton tops at thrift stores which will likely be my winter layering staple. I LOVE how chiffon flows. Like the rippling Amazon River in a dress. (Ha). And yet it always looks simply stated and kind of cozy.

I love the tights. I just got some purple tights that I love, but I'm sort of in the same boat as you...can I rock them without feeling like Barney. haha! But I think you totally rock your's and I never once thought "oompa-loompa".

In my mind chifon is more summer fabric, but you have styled up this look so wonderful for fall that I have completely changed my mind about chifon ;) I think the most amazing detail in this look is your tights which you rock fantastic!

Those orange tights are waay too cool, I disagree because i LOVED how you styled them! Chiffon is a great fabric, but I'm not sure it could outdo good old cotton :) Thanks for sharing!
