First of all, let me give give credit to the people that gave me the inspiration for this outfit today! Serene and Style Underdog for their maroon stockings of yesterday, they gave me the purple stockings of today. Vanessa gave me the idea of layering a skirt under a dress (she did skirt over a dress, but you know what I mean). All this in lieu of tomorrow's topic on Friend Friday.
Back to the silk thing. The tunic/dress is my silk for today. I didn't realise it but, what a great transitional material it is! It is warm, but light and doesn't stick does to your stockings like cotton. Some people say that silk is too hot for the summer~so here you go--try it in the spring and the fall! I love the mix of the summery with the wintry.
I had this vision this morning of this tunic top with my purple tights--I just thought it would be a really brilliant color combination. And, I managed to get another good color combination on the shoes and the stockings~ taupe and purple. Boy, did I get a lot of judgemental looks today at the museum! All those old ladies (wait a minute---how old am I?) were just freaking out. Really.
And the other good thing? This leather jacket, that I temporarily stole from my son, was $19.99 at Marshall's last Christmas. Actually, the motorcycle jacket was inspired yesterday by Jessica Quirk--her jacket fits her better tho~
Do you think purple stockings are more daring than maroon?
