I know I've been wearing my fishnets and boots combo a lot but the tights are starting to rip and I feel like I have to get all the wear out of them until they're unwearable! Boo.

  1. Elaine, you look so cute in this outfit! And I can't help but notice that these pictures were taken on your campus-- with PEOPLE in the background! D: I'm usually so afraid of being "caught" by someone else while taking pictures that I gotta give you kudos for that. I guess I think it's a semi-big deal 'cause I'm just a big pansy, woops.

  2. It's amazing the great looks you're able to put together for so little money. I hope your readers are taking that lesson (and the others you offer) to heart.

  3. I am coveting your jacket! And I love that dress. How nice to have a sister as a personal shopper.

    I am also trying to figure out how to drive to Utah real quickly without my husband noticing! So wish I could be there for your meet-up.

  37. cute and it looks pretty comfy too- i'm all about the comfort.

  40. Love, love, love this outfit and your side-swept bangs. They look so lovely! It's a good look for you. So...I don't have a fashion blog, but I have a blog... Am I invited too? ;) haha.

    P.S. I'm still working on finding that info about HK. Hopefully I'll have it for you by then! Smootches.

  42. As lovely as always...the dress just perfectly fits your body shape...

  43. Love your dress.. it's plaid but not hipster.. just femme enough. Plus wearing the leather jacket makes it soo you.. well maybe because I've seen you wear that jacket before!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cute dress! I love plaids worn in a way that don't look bumpkin. :)
    I so wish I could come to the meet-up!! We're busy that weekend and can't change it. Major bummer.

  52. You're so beautiful! Yesterday I saw tights like yours, I almost got off the bus to buy them. I resisted =P

    Kisses :)

  53. That is a great dress! I think it looks awesome paired with the fishnets and boots. That sucks that they're ripping though. Hopefully they will last long enough to not need them anymore.

    ReplyDelete
  54. What a cute outfit! I loooooove the dress and it fits you so well. Sorry to hear the tights are ripping, that happened to a pair of mine too :(

  55. i'm so in love with that leather jacket! you're looking gorgeous in your last photo with the wind in your hair!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love your prairie dress. Actually, I love prairie dresses in general but yours is super flattering and you styled it so well.
    Ah, tights' expiration date. You can use them create a great shine on leather shoes when they are about gone (or to polish an acoustic guitar).

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the awesome combination of the faux leather jacket and that sweet dress!

    :( about the ripping... perhaps you could transform it into a fashionably ripped pair of fishnet leggings when the time comes! XDD

  73. So cute! I love the combination of the sweet dress with the leather jacket. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. i love how the jacket and the tights turn the western feel of the rest of the outfit rougher and edgier. great juxtaposition!

  75. This outift is super cute as always! I wish that I worked in an environment where I could dress up. I would love wearing something like this. I guess that I could try it one of these days, but everyone wears jeans. I can't wait for Spring to get here to tryout some new looks.

    ReplyDelete
  76. So pretty. I love how you made it look very un-prairie-like with the patterned hose and moto jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  77. The tights are so gorgeous! Did you really throw them away at last?
