Cha Cha Cha

I love color. I also love sleek & black, so I sometimes forget how much I love color. Thanks Darcy & Hello Luvvy for asking me to participate in this taqueria shoot and thus reminding me.

I chose two looks: spanish dancer & rodeo queen. Sometimes having a theme really helps me.

What I Wore: Winter in the Tropics

(what I wore: dress – vintage from The Grey Dog, blazer – f21, tights – hue, pumps – jessica simpson, earrings – f21, tutu as slip – ebay, lips – covergirl outlast + lip perfection as seen here)
I love making summer dresses work in the winter. Sometimes the easiest way to do that is with a dress that has black in it. This tropical dress is so summery on it’s own but with the black tights and blazer, it works for winter as well.
Here is the dress from summer…

And today…

What I Wore: A tutu, among other things

(what I wore: blouse – vintage from potter’s house thrift, skirt – old navy, tutu – dance supply store, tights – hue, boots – aldo, jewelry – vintage and forever21)
Every time I put these thigh-high heeled boots on I feel a little like Hooker McCanIWearthistoWork. However, I believe they can be done in a ‘tasteful & edgy’ way instead of a ‘streetwalker – pretty woman’ way. Hopefully that was accomplished with this outfit. Either way, I didn’t get walked out by HR, so no matter.
