{outfit} Duo-tone



  Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
 People are always talking about monochromatic outfits so I decided to wear a duo-tone (meaning 2 colors) outfit! Yesterday I decided to be a little wild and wear my velvet Tahari pants with my Alexander Wang booties.  Since my bottom half was a bit extreme I wanted to keep things simple on the top.  I'm also trying to wear more jewelry, every day I am going to wear the same 2 rings (along with my watch) and then add a necklace or something.  Need to get into the habit of accessorizing, I never do it. I even wore a darker shade of lipstick, not like you can tell. But I felt weird so I wiped it off before work, ha ha. I like VERY simple makeup if you haven't noticed...I also don't wear it half the time because I'm lazy.

Pants: Elie Tahari via Shopbop gift card, Blazer: Necessary Objects via the desert fox blogshop $30, Tank: Bella via city brewed giveway, Booties: Alexander Wang via The Outnet birthday gift, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: etsy, Rings: mom's

This is how I actually wore my hair today. I tried my old standby of taking my shower at night sleeping with my hair in a bun. This was the first time I tried it since cutting my hair and thankfully it still works!

And here is my usual audience watching me take photos. There were many other viewers today (people walking pets) too...very awkward. [UPDATE: It isn't my cat]

P.S. Sign the petition to stop sensorship on the internet. The SOPA and PIPA laws are supposed to fight piracy but they will end up doing much more than that, we need to stop them from passing!

  1. The pants look great, and so does the makeup!
    It's really hard to get used to new makeup, just keep wearing it a little at a time.

  26. Ooh! Normally I don't like layers of the same colors on top of each other, but you pull this off rather nicely. Sophistication! And you look so grown up with your hair pulled back.

  30. I am in love with your velvet pants. You look so lovely. You're right I couldn't tell you were wearing lipstick but I know it's hard when you're not used to it. I was the same way about eyeliner for years!

  35. Ahhhhhhhh! Your shoes! They are mind-bogglingly GORGEOUS. (Is bogglingly a word? Spell check says it is. It sounds funny though.) Also, you are wearing velvet pants. You automatically rock.
