Speaking of Grey Cardigans...

For once, I made a (fashion) threat that WASN'T empty. My Tabio Heart Tights arrived last week, and it was love at first sight!

I probably could have gone a size down (funky Japanese sizing + being right on the cusp between medium and large + being used to the retardedly small-ness of AA tights = I can already tell they're gonna saaag) but I absolutely love the print and the sheerness.

Also, after the last post, Suzy reminded me that I don't in fact own a single grey cardigan. It's not for lack of trying, oh no, but somehow I still haven't been able to get my hands on that perfect, cozy, slouchy sweater...until I nabbed one out of my bf's closet this morning. Woops!

With all the grey and black and white going on, I had to throw in a little color, so I brought out my other awesome fringey scarf. Somehow I managed to find the two of them within a few weeks of each other, and I've never seen another before or since...

Suzy said...

'cha girl i'm way impressed with your follow-through on this one!

i'm loving the dark nylon on you..my knees are incredibly knobby so anytime i wear dark nylons they only accentuate every weird crevice i inherited from my mom. it's hard to explain so, fuck it, i'm going to blahg about it right now while i wait for my bf to bring me food.

E.K.: of course, let's trade! Don't know why I didn't think of it ages ago.

Anon: I bought the boots several years ago at Thrift Town in San Francisco, my favorite thrift store in the world :n )

Great. I hope you don't mind. I put a mini version of your header as the link on my site. It's what I do with my favorite blogs!

This is an amazing outfit! I love everything about it - the sheer tights, the striped dress, the grey cardigan, and oh, that fringed scarf!! So wonderful.

Helen said...

ah so cute. i love heart print things

Kat said...

Yay you got the tights! I wouldn't worry too much about them sagging, I've had about 12 pairs of tights from Tabio and none of them have sagged yet, they have all been the opaque ones though. I love your boots and your stripey dress.

M said...

Very cute outfit. I'm the opposite to you - I have waaaayyy too many grey cardigans!

anna said...

Where is your wonderful striped dress from?

Lydia said...

All kinds of jealous over this outfit. Too perfect!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Thanks so much you guys!

anna: it's second-hand old school Gap Kids, which is why it's so ridiculously short ;n )

Love this combo!
And I used to work in Tabio, even if tall medium are usually ok, love the heart pattern

Maeko said...

The contrasting patterns is seriously awesome. I love it.

I've been looking for the perfect striped shirts, and still have not managed to find one. :(
