Red At Night, Sailors Delight

I feel as if I am on a wee bit of a "red streak" and Modcloth ably fed my desire for the color with these awesome, ribbed tights. Despite cold, grey weather the thickness of the tights is keeping me warm and seemed a fitting pairing to my new nautical dress. The dress is very lightweight and clearly meant for a warmer season, but when I receive new things I have no patience to wait!
My favorite new item in my most recent Modcloth package? This little racing time necklace that has once and for all replaced my need of a watch. I am attempting to collect horse related things; namely in jewelry since moving a lot makes knick-knack collecting inconvenient. However, it is slow going since horse figures aren't that common (unlike bunnies or birds) and even so it is hard for me to find one I really like. This one is in gold and tells the time? Perfection...

  1. Hi :) Your outfits are stunning, I personally love all your dresses. Where did you find them? Why Washington isn't suffering of snow at all?:) Here, in Poland we are addicted to winter jackets and it makes me upset;) Ciao :)

  2. Ah, this dress! How can I express how much I love it? You truly make outfits your own, and speak through the clothing, versus letting the clothing speak for you.

  71. You hair and make up has been looking FINE lately. I was coveting that dress for ages and kept wondering how it would look on me. It looks brilliant on you & your racing horses clock necklace is really cool! I'm so glad you bought it. I have a silver penguin clock necklace & I think I'll pull it out for a photoshoot soon.
