Oh, So Sketchy..

Tuesday, January 19, 2010
This is my "new" dress! What do you think? The color is like a brown/gray. It differs with the light - I know, weird. But I like it! It looks like someone got some white paint and painted strokes throughout. I actually don't like it with the boots but it was raining/snowing today so I had to wear them. I'll have to wear them for the next two days as well.

Anyway, I am itching for some new colored tights. I just found a hole in this one! :( What colors have you been wearing often? I want to buy something I'll be able to remix with many outfits, not just a few.. so I'd like your input!

  7. Beautiful dress! I love the mix of colors and textures here. I've been sticking with black tights lately, but in tons of different patterns and lace.

  8. I love the shape of the dress on you. I'm pretty jealous of those amazing tights and sad for the hole in them. Good luck finding cute tights right now, I've been looking for a pair of maroon or red tights for a while now and haven't found any. Now all the stores are stocking bathing suits so I guess it's not going to get any easier. I guess I'll have to visit we love colors.

  10. I love that dress. You look amazing.

    Isn't Simply Vera awesome? I have quite a few pieces that mix in wonderfully with my wardrobe.

    I've been wearing grey and plum tights. I picked them up at TJMaxx on sale and they have been wonderful.

  11. great outfit! the dress is flattering for tiny figures. as for tights i am a sucker for red tights...i think they can be paired with lots of colours.

  12. You keep wearing awesome tights!! I did find a really nice plum purple pair which I love, and also some black ones which are quite thin and then have darker black areas of circles. They are pretty cool haven't taken them for a test run yet though :(

  16. the dress is gorgeous and so flattering on you!
    as for tights, i hear ya! i love dark red tights (like here) but i've been dying for some navy blue ones...i think they'd go with everything!

  17. Love the dress, and I actually think it looks good with the boots!

  18. pretty dress! i like vera wang's kohls collection, but generally everything runs a bit big on me! :(

    i have been wearing lots of neutrals! i think because of the blahhh weather outside.

  19. Great dress! I've been all about blue toned tights- navy, turquoise, etc! I really like your red ones. A friend did a white dress with red tights for Christmas- very holiday Kate Spade- and it looked fab. I think I'll give it a try.

  20. Love the dress! Unfortunately I haven't had money to be buying what I want to wear at the moment: nudes! I really really want some... :(

  21. That's a great dress! The pattern is very cool. I'm mostly been wearing my basic colored tights this season but I do have a slate blue pair and a berry/fuschia pair that I like too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The pale blue scarf and maroon tights look fantastic together, especially against the neutrals of that fab new frock!

  23. I'm wearing black and whote so much...so boring...

  24. Love it! Unlike you, I was definitely unprepared for the snow and found myself in cowboy boots, aka no traction. Being brown and white you could totally work sort of subtle purple/grey/nude (obviously not all together) :)

    Nice find!

  26. cute cute cute dress! Love that dress. I've been wearing purple, black and teal tights quite a bit.

    I just totally realized you live in SLC. I went there last February to go skiing! We had a great time out there!

  28. cuute dress! i think it would've looked better with the boots if you safety pinned the hem a little short (of course that would make it colder...so i don't know). but i have these blue pair of tights that are really versatile! i haven't been wearing them recently because of all the rain, but once the sun is back i'll wear them again for you to see :D yay for tights!

  29. I think dark green cable knit tights are the BOMB.
    Beautiful photos, the outfit is simply amazing xxx

  30. I love the dress, that abstract pattern reminds me vaguely of Picasso!

    I feel like I've been wearing a lot of neutrals lately, so I'm trying to shake things up with colors and patterns. I love We Love Colors, they have the best brightly colored hosiery! My favorites are the red and purple tights, but I'm already itching for yellow or blue...

  33. I love the dress! So awesome.

    The only colored tights I have are solid grey and solid brown, I also have some patterned black ones.

  34. I love the painted feel of it too, I have a similar one..sort of but not really - same painted feel and material but different tones. I love that it's lightweight enough to wear as a top too - tucked into a skirt or pants.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Huh. My monitor must need calibrating, the dress looks more purple to me. Then again, I could need to get my eyes checked! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  36. LOVE the dress! Simply Vera rocks sometimes :) Can't wait to see any new tights! I've probably gotten the most use out of dark green + purple ones (though I feel like you don't like purple?). In any case--good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've been so lost from the blogging world!!! I've missed so many of your posts and outfits... I loved your make up photo shoot and this dress is so pretty!!!
    I've been wearing grey and beige tigths... I don't take too much risks... but they go with almost every color :)
    have a great day!!!

  38. Oh, I love this dress! It's so pretty with the red tights and the light blue scarf, too! I have been wearing a lot of purple tights lately, but today I'm wearing bright red ones.

    ReplyDelete
  39. cute new dress! I like to wear white, black, navy blue, and grey a lot. Such happy colors right?

    ReplyDelete
  40. LOVE this dress. I love my grey tights a lot lately!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You'd be amazed how many outfits you can wear bright colored tights with, especially if you have a lot of neutral colors in your wardrobe. I love my red rights, but I need to buy new ones. Holes in the toes are uncomfortable. Burgundy tights are the way to go in my book. They go with everything.

  42. cute! i like my gray tights a a lot!

  43. At first look I thought the dress was Banana Republic, they had that print last season. Looking fantastic, Elaine!

  44. I've been looking for a dress like this for AGES, you lucky thing! You look great :) (as usual!)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the dress!!! I love the mix of the different colors (dress, tights, scarf).

    My favorite color tights lately would have to be my berry/wine color ones. The seem to go with everything!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would wear this dress in a heartbeat.

    ReplyDelete
  47. love the new dress! as far as the tights go... i've seen a few lovely style bloggers sporting some blueish/grayish/purplish tights that seem to look great with a lot of color combos. if i could choose any color it would either be that or a deep purple.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love my bright purple tights. I also have royal blue tights that I think are fantastic! Red is pretty versatile too. Good luck on your quest for coloured tights!

  49. i really like your clothing style. the dress is beautiful! for tights, i'd pick red. i think that's a very daring color and can be matched with almost anything :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. You are great at "pops of color." You always find a way to make an outfit just a little more interesting - like the tights and scarf in this look. It looks great and I love your new dress!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Super cute dress! I would definitely wear it. I like the eggplant color in tights, alot!

  60. wow what an awesome dress! for tights, besides black color, i think dark purple, maroon, dark green and navy blue are easy to match with many outfits ;)

  61. love the outfit. the dress is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  62. O.K. that is too cute and I think the boots are appropriate too ( comfort and warmth )

    I only wear black tights, not textured.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love the new dress! I like to wear bluish grey tights, they seem to go with a lot. I have been really loving the textures and styles over at Anthro this year (although I haven't bought any)

    ReplyDelete
  64. very cute dress! i am boring with my tights, so i don't have any suggestions.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Lovely dress, it suits you well. I think grey tights would go well with it too.
