  6. Thanks for leaving a nice comment! You're right,there are many other ways to be comfortable in clothing other than jeggings,tracksuit bottoms and uggs! All crazes that really should be been and gone by now.I find I'm comfortable in pratically everthing I wear,but cosy vintage jumpers,brogues,floaty dresses and oversized shirts are great comfort items.
    Great outfit,esspecially loving patterned tights and the red lip colour to match the dress ^^

  7. Why does it seem those great tights go from both legs polka dot to one polka dot to one diamond? Those are great tights.

  12. Some of your locations you shoot in remind me of Wales where my family lives... Except when I'm walking in the woods I'm wearing wellies and looking extremely unattractive!

    Love the colour of the FC dress and the way it pops out against the background. Want these tights bad. Not to mention long enough hair to plait!

    ReplyDelete
  13. such a lovely look! i just adore the tights!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Lovely! Love the red with the jacket!!!

  18. I'm insanely jealous of you and your NYC trip! Everyone is mentioning it and I wish I could go. I'd love to meet you and so many other lovely bloggers. I need to enter that Chictopia contest!

  21. gorgeous!! and of course, i love chictopia!!! one day, i wish i can meet you!!! you give the best and most useful advices ever! thanks! :D yay!

    ReplyDelete
  22. i really like the marching band-ness that is your jacket. a side note from your previous note, i think cary grant is the ultimate man.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I seriously love everything about this outfit--the proportions, the colours, the sheer polka dot tights. Fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my you are so lucky to go to NY again it's gonna be awesome ! This red dress is gorgeous, it's such a nice pop of color in the winter woods !

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love your oh-so-playful poses in these photos!

    The Chictopia event sounds wonderful. In NYC, too! Right at the heart of fashion. I wish I was part of that blogging scene. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I agree with you about blogging, most of my friends don't share the same interests as me in fashion and old movies so seeing other people who actually like the same things you do makes me kind of happy and giddy. That Chictopia thing sounds wonderful, wish I could go! Hope you have lots of fun there and bring back lots of pictures! Also I love your outfit! Your jacket is adorable and those tights are so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I so hope I can go! It's times like these I wish I had a financier who would just give me money to do the things I want and go the places I dream! Haha.

    I love the jacket paired with that red dress. I've been wearing the same cardigan for days on end, this makes me want to branch out..

    ReplyDelete
  28. i cannot get enough of this side braid you've been doing! maybe in 6 months my hair will finally be long enough to manage it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, congratulations on being a speaker at the Chictopia Conference! I wish I could go, but then having to be in class gets in the way a little bit.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I feel like I've already talked about how I love your outfits; but really, what I'm giddy about is Chictopia.

    I haven't really been INTO fashion until relatively recently in my life, but now I love it so much that just reading about why you love connecting with a larger community got me excited too! It would be awesome if you blogged to us about your NYC trip!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I so want to go to Chictopia 10. Like Delightfully Tacky I totally need a financier to help me out with these things. Please vote my looks up and leave me comments so I stand a chance of attending. Oh how I would love to go and meet all of you girls in real life. Starting this whole fashion photography has been one of the best things ever in my life. You girls all are so supportive and sweet and I am inspired everyday by reading your blogs and seeing your outfits. It has been amazing to connect with a community of fashion lovers because like you I don't have too many real life friends who share this interest.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lovely outfit dear! The polka dot tights are amazing, I really want a pair. Your pics are great!

  35. nice plug for chictopia, and i agree with your sentiments about blogging in general. the internet has opened up numerous possibilities to connect with others and see what others are doing around the world. we get to see things and talk to people we wouldn't have otherwise met twenty five years ago! i'm quite grateful and could wax poetic about the internet for ages.

    anyways, lovely outfit. your use of red is top-notch.

    ReplyDelete
  36. i'm not a chictopia member but i am an avid reader of posts from bloggers i'm frequent.

    this military style jacket and cherry red dress apart are wonderful - but together are simply radiant! as usual you look FABULOUS.

    xo.

  38. A girl in my class has that jacket, and wore it today, and I complimented her on it. Of course, you wear it wonderfully!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ho I really love more and more this jacket!! With the red dress it look like a circus outfit, it's great!!

  42. That sounds like so much fun! I can definitely relate to not being able to discuss blogging/fashion with anyone :) Love love your spotty tights :)

  43. that's a great jacket!
    and I love the photo of you sitting on the rock, it's beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh you're right, meeting all these other bloggers sounds awfully exciting! i love your tights so much.

    ReplyDelete
  46. the whole look is great but i am especially enamored with the ring on your middle finger, the shoes and that bag! and the tights! oh, i just can't decide it's all so adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the combination of military and feminine! Your tights are just too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  48. First I have to say I love the jacket, I love the militar jackets and this is one is especially cute. I think I know how you feel, when you talk about fashion and no one gets it, but it's great when you find sites like these one and talk with people with your same interestings. Lovely outfit, have a nice day.

  49. This outfit is SUPER cute. I LOVE the tights. Damn "street vendor."

  51. I wishwishwish I could make it to the summit, but unfortunately living on the other side of the world makes it impossible. It would be so great to meet other bloggers, and like you said, people that share similar interests with me that I just don't have around in everyday life. Also, your jacket is so cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. this is all around perfect. i love the tights!

  56. I am so excited for you about the Chictopia conference. One of my goals this year is to get on Weardrobe and Chictopia. I just think they are both great ways to connect with other bloggers :)

    And this might be one of my favorite outfits on your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  57. How fun that you are speaking at the conference! That is awesome! I wish my company would send me but blogging about beauty products isn't on the main list of chictopia. Too bad because I feel that beauty product and makeup are equally important to women even if a lot of those in our blogging community don't wear as much product as some in other blogospheres!

    ReplyDelete
  58. your outfit is to die for! super cute!! love the polka dot tights and patent shoe accents.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I think this is my favourite outfit of yours ever!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I got an invite in my emails earlier but one small problem...I am on the other side of the Atlantic!

    Too bad! Susie is lovely in person :)

  61. I love that jacket! The colors look great together.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love it when you do the little animated things.

    ReplyDelete
  63. everything about your outfit is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I find your perspective so interesting BECAUSE fashion isn't a large part of your daily life. You are one of my very favorite bloggers for this reason. I just wrote an article about how fashion blogging (though I've only been at it 6 months) informs my dayjob as a writer -- I'd love it if you'd check it out. It's linked at my blog.

    Beautiful red skirt, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  65. That little jacket looks so great with that beautiful dress! And the polka dots on the tights are too fun!

    ReplyDelete
  66. wow! Ilove this outfit, especially the dress, and the amazing tights! And that jacket is perfection, the cherry on top!
    I adore your blog, and I would be honored if you'd visit mine!

  67. Oh wow, how lovely!

    I really really want to go to Chictopia event but I'm so far away! Anyway, I just want to tell you that I really want to meet you someday!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I couldn't agree more with everything you said. I'm so excited to actually SEE you and meet you in person! I'm way too excited. I've never been to NYC before either, so that'll be an experience in itself. I'm looking forward to lots of things including you in the future! :D

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love everything about this outfit, and the tights simply rock. They go great with the color of the dress!

    Congrats on NY!! That sounds awesome! Chictopia is really fun, everyone is very chatty and nice.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I keep meaning to tell you how much I love your gifs. It's such a great idea! And the one in today's post was going perfectly in time to the Metric song I was listening to.

    Mad love for military jackets.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love your braid, girl! And I'm super excited about Chictopia10, too! I thought it was only for the winners of the contest, but I got an invite so I think I'm going? Haha... can't wait to see you again! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  75. I finally got on chictopia and am still learining the ropes...
    I know I say this every time you wear those tights but: THOSETIGHTSARESOEPIC. Simply awesome. Also resisting the urge to repeatidly tell you how much I love the airplane ring.
    Oops, I guess I just did. guess my self control didn't work to well...

  76. I want those tights so badly!
    It's so sad that all those blogger events always seemed to be in the US :(
    I kind of tried being active and fashion communities but I failed. I am already active in a german community which is not mainly fashion related, but anyway, I have met wonderful people through this site and I wish I could see them more often.

    ReplyDelete
  77. another great outfit - jacket, skirt, tights, bag, i love

  81. I really loved hearing your thoughts on Chictopia.. all of it is so true. So amazing to be able to connect with so many people all over the world on something you can't connect with anyone you know.

    The steps in these photos are amazing and so fun! Added a nice touch to your photos and your outfit was so quirky and fun.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love and adore this outfit from head to toe. You look amazing!

    Great pairing of all the different pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Wow, this is the first I have heard of the chictopia event, mostly because I have completely dropped off any radar in the last few months. That sounds fabulous! I can't wait to hear about it!! I actually for 2 seconds thought about going until I realized I can't go that weekend. Woo!

  91. Love love your red dress paired with such a gorgeous jacket! the detailing on it is amazing:)

    Those dotted tights are to die for as well. Ohhhh my,I really wished could go for the Chictopia conference that is coming up.

    But the place is just too far. How I wish I was in the states now. From where I'm from,the market here is not so big with fashion bloggers.

    ReplyDelete
  92. this outfit is just lovely!!!

    although i doubt i will be able to make it this year, i truly hope i have the opportunity to attend next year! i can't wait to hear all about it!

  96. LOVE YOUR OUTFIT. And I believe the reason why you started your blog goes for many bloggers. I've been keeping track of shows since NYFW Spring 2008. That's when I first started my fashion blog but after a while, I realized I wasn't able to post consistently and gave up. But last year, I guess I was just like "I NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE ABOUT FASHION!!!!!!!" and started the blog I still have today.

    have tons of fun in NYC! stay warm!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Ooh, have fun in NYC! Sounds amazing. I love the combination of red, black and brown here.

  99. Take lots of fabulous photos and blog all the stylish details. I'll live vicariously through you, as my Lady of Leisure status doesn't have the budgetary means for a NYC trip. But I'm quite happy to see what everyone else is doing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. this outfit is so cute! my laptop died a while back and i lost all my 'favourites', ie. all the blogs i follow! it has taken me a while to find them all again, thank god i have stumbled across yours again!

    i know what you mean, none of my friends seem the least bit interested in runway trends or fashion... it makes me feel a bit superficial to talk about it as a lot of them are into 'serious' things like international development and the environment! it's so nice to be able to talk to people from all over the world who share your views :)
