We Love Colors

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 11:00 am

Did you know I’ve posted 494 outfits in the last 661 days of blogging?  That’s an average of 5.25 a week.  In your answers to the poll the votes for more outfits were tied for first with more inspiration folder posts.  I am thinking maybe that meant you want to KEEP seeing outfits as I already post so many but I will try to up it to 6-7 outfits a week anyway.  I like the challenge and plan to include more fantasy outfits, like this one below.

This is what I wanted to wear today:

My funny husband asked me in that early morning hour, ” Is that really what you are wearing to work? “.  Um I wish I could show off my wild space dyed legs to the world today but I don’t think it fits the dress code, I’m doing a dress up for the blog.  I can’t wait to wear these tights out for real, so comfortable and amazing bright colors.  I won them on Fashion Fille, I got to choose two pairs of tights from We Love Colors so went for these and a plum pair.  Thanks so much Fashion Fille & We Love Colors!

This is what I’m really wearing:

I think this is more office appropriate.  I mean, I’m already pushing it with the blue hair.

Outfit #1: Navy Dress, Winners. Thrifted Silver Sequin Tube Top worn as cummerbund. We Love Colors Tights #7214. Silver Earrings, $5 at China Town Night Market. Aldo Ballet Flats.

Outfit #2: Cherry Blossom Dress worn as slip, Consignment Store years ago. Baby Blue Scarf, Ebay Lot. Daisy Pin, ?. Inukshuk Earrings, Gift. White Vianni Flats.

    I wish people at work were more cool and let people wear what they want, ha-ha, that’s a fantasy right there.

    Hey, if someone complains about your blue hair in the office, you could offer to wear these tights to distract from the hair! 😀

    And yes, I do take all the pictures on my blog, well, all of the ones that don’t have me in them. I’ve taken the majority of those I’m in as well – if using the self-timer counts as having taken them myself… There have been maybe 3-4 pictures where I have handed the camera to someone else and used them as a live tripod and button-pusher while I posed. 😉

    Due to my small screen ( I´m working with a netbook ) I first saw only half of your body: The black dress, the glitter silver belt and your hair done (it looks so great on you). My first impression was: you are posting an evening outfit :):)

    I love the second outfit… the tights are a bit too out there for me but I admire you for having the courage to wear them. You should wear them shopping or something.

    Love your outfits! 😀 The first IS SO AWESOME with the silver belt & spacey tights! 😀 But the first is so pretty & sweet.

    I like both!

    Hey today I’m dressed like an English fox hunter turned pirate. Figure that one out! Someone at work already said I looked “cool.”

    Also, question: How long does it take you to get ready in the mornings AND take pictures before work?

    I do not know how you do this–that number of outfits is incredible. I am in awe. I can only chalk it up to motivation and youth (this is my way of saying that I am not nearly so motivated and that fleet-footed youth has fled). Brava!

    I love the fantasy outfit. When I worked in retail I’d have worn such an ensemble and not have thought twice about it. You’ve done a good job, though, on the other, the work outfit, by dressing it up and individualizing it.

    Usually 40 minutes; 20 for hair and makeup, 10 to plan an outfit, 10 for pictures. 🙂

    well even though your fantasy outfit is made of awesome, i also LOVE what you really wore today. especially the dress peeking out and the scarf. oolala!

    I really like the “We love colors”-tights

    Love the fantasy outfit too (great tights!!!), but probably more appropriate for a concert or social engagement. You are lucky you can wear blue hair to work! I’ve had many a job with dress codes that were very restrictive (I had ear piercings close because of one earring/ear rule). Often times those rules develop because folks push the envelope. You show a lot of style, personal style, in your work outfits, so a little reservation might not hurt. Balancing your personal style with a professional look might be the best in the long run. Oh my god, I’ve turned into my mother. . . Love the work outfit – light blue accents top & bottom – very nice.

  13. Charlie says:

    Love both outfits – I thinking bout getting some we love colour tights they are amazing, but there is too much choice and I can’t decide!

  14. Pamela Daley says:

    Really! Two outfits – really DIFFERENT outfits at that – plus two different
    MAKE UP’S(?!) before going to work?!!

    You Go Girl! Better you than me, though 🙂

    At that though, I love your hair slicked back like that..very noble! :)(:

    Wow, I really love the first ‘fantasy’ outfit.
    Pairing the colourful tights with the silver tube top worn as a belt
    is fantastic….. You did a great job : )

    But I think the office dress is very cute, too.
