Today in the spirit of Halloween I decided to wear bright and festive tights. Generally, I think that tights are a perfect winter accessory. I tend to wear dark and dismal colors in the winter months.The pop of color will help brighten your winter attire. Donning fun tights will help to bring you out of that winter gloom and add pizzazz to your wardrobe.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN DOLLS!

Did you Know?
Leggy dolls, are MOD 10 inch fashion dolls that were released by Hasbro in North America, Polistil in Europe and Shiba in Japan from 1972 to 1973. They have a very exaggerated appearance, even though they are 10 inches tall. They are very thin dolls (the waist is less than 0.75 inches across) and they have 7 inch legs. Each doll in the standard editions came packaged on a large blister card with a stock outfit, pants, platform shoes and a plastic stand. Their unusual appearance makes them good models for a variety of fashion doll clothing, including their own line of MOD fashions. ( Source: Wikipedia)
Last night we received our first snow fall of the season. I’m miffed that it happened since it’s only October. On a positive note, I did get a chance to wear my wool, camel colored, belted wool coat. I received it as a birthday gift from my mom. This coat has a nice fit and is roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath. It’s not too long but offers enough coverage. Have a fabulous weekend and stay warm.

I have a soft spot for military inspired clothing. I like that they are structured pieces is classic and never goes out of style. I think military pieces worn by women convey strength and toughness. Maybe going full fledge military isn’t for you. You can choose to wear only one article of military inspired clothing i.e., a jacket or hat.

Tunics are great for a couple of reasons. They cover up anything that you don’t want to show, are comfortable, and are flattering on all body types. Pair them with leggings, a pencil skirt, or cigarette pants.

Today I’m feeling under the weather. It’s the season for runny noses and itchy throats . I still managed to pull off a decent outfit. At this time of year folks are heading back to school and back to business from their leisurely summer activities. I think the change in season inspires people to tap into their collegiate side. The great thing about this look is that it’s appropriate for all ages. Blazers, knit sweaters, pleated skirts, loafers, and headbands, all scream collegiate style to me. If your sweaters from last year need a pick me up try replacing the buttons or make patches for your sleeves. I bought denim fabric and made patches for the sleeves and pockets. You can’t really see them in these photos but they really helped revive this old sweater.
