Seafoam Dream

I cannot tell a lie: this is, in fact, what I wore yesterday, but since I didn't manage to get any real-time documentation, I recreated it for y'all today. Because I can.

This is probably my favorite top that I own. The color is perfect, it's really old, I got it for crazy cheap, and it has so many nice details (Lace! A pocket! Pleating!) Too bad my camera's batteries died before I could get up close and personal.

Also, on the topic of ripped tights: this is a trend I had resisted for a long time, since I in no way consider myself badass enough to pull it off. Then one day, I got a run in the third mo'fo'ing pair of black tights I've bought this winter. And wouldn't you know it, I suddenly became REALLY, RIDICULOUSLY BADASSS.

I love this outfit! The blouse it utterly perfect! I love the details. And the red with it is so unexpected but goes so surprisingly well!

i must be so badass because i don't think i own a pair of tights that DOESN'T have rips. that, or incredibly cheap.
i LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit, it is so perfect - the colours, the conbination of sizes and shapes, and by squinting really hard I can see the details in the blouse and I am in love! i would model my outfit today on this one if it wasn't 38C here in melbourne.

i like the top matched with the cardigan, too. and ripped tights. i feel awkward about it sometimes but i think you just have to embrace it and it's okay.

The runs look like stripes on you; I love!

Some girl accidentally cigarette-burned my tights on NYE and I told her "Thank god, I look hip enough to be at this party now." She was too drunk to catch the sarcasm.

I 100% understand the whole ripped tights thing! I didn't want to join either, but then your favourite pair rip and you have no choice because you still wanna wear 'em!

hey so what are you wearing in your hair/on your head? is it an awesome hat, or some kind of ribbon? in any case, it looks like a dream, but yeah you ALWAYS look really beautiful and perfectly pulled together, that must be nice <3

The only way to do ripped tights. What a sweet contrast!

Hey thanks everyone! When this pair of tights gave up the ghost (man, American Apparel tights have gone waaaaay downhill since I worked there a couple years ago. Seriously, what's up guys???) I vowed that I would not buy another pair until next fall.

Oh and kennedy, yep, it's just the mirror behind me! Nothin' in my hair but a little barrette in back and a lot of Psssssst!

And Suzy, ah man, that gave me a larf!

It is such a cute top and I like this look with the ripped tights!

You're now so badass that I'm jealous.
I share the same trouble - I swear, whenever I wear a pair of tights for the first time, a tiny little hole will form and a part of me will die inside knowing that it'll ladder.

There is no shame in double-timing an outfit within 72 hours. i do it all the time, haha!
