Happy New Year!!!! May 2011 be full of health, happiness and thrifting!

Maybe I am a tiny bit glad that the madness of the holidays is winding down. It was nice, very nice but so busy. Nice, very nice but so expensive too. Parties, potlucks, hosting friends, going to the World Juniors (Matt bought tickets last year... another story for another day), throwing a New Year's party (which, might I add... was pretty fun!), and getting the house we just moved into semi-ready for said party... Everywhere I went, money left a trail behind me. And children followed behind to get at the money. Basically, I was the Pied Piper but without the notoriety... I need a better PR team.

I seem to default to black tights (often these ones) and the Aldo boots a lot in the winter. I try to use other tights but one has a run, one has a weird blue sheen, and one has the crotch at my knees... I suppose I could use the drop crotch tights as some hipster fashion statement but I'm not cool enough.


Perhaps I can save myself the effort and photo shop some outfits with print mixing and a dash of sequins on this picture over and over again until the spring. Add some sarcastic remarks about stuff and such, and we would have ourselves an outfit post. But then I could never surprise everyone and retreat from the safety of short skirts and actually wear pants a few times...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!! You know exactly how to mix patterns and textures perfetly!! I think I want to move out to Ontario and hang out with you for awhile! (I've tried to convince the hubby to move to Ontario too many times to I don't think it's going to happen...bummer!)

This looks perfect for the warm weather we've been having. As far as the tights go, I love them. And at least your default tights have a pattern. Mine are just solid black or solid navy.

Sofia said...

Really love the print mixing. Plaid and leopard together equals genius.

That's an intense mix of patterns and textures but you make it work!

Lindsey Dixon said...

I love the way you mix patterns. I would never be able to do it (well) but I love it on you!

There's so much going on in this outfit, but you pull it off! I love the double shot of you on the railroad tracks. Happy New Year!

Stella said...

Gimme! Gimme, gimme! All of this...I may not fit into the skirt, but I'll damn sure look at it and go, "so pretty!" But seriously, love the outfit. I do very light pattern mixing, but you are much more adept at it than I!

On a side note, you just reminded me that I should be wearing my glasses to be on the computer. Will promptly do so. There. I put them on!

Love the combination of patterns! I'm seeing a re-create in my future!!

Sydney said...

wowza. this shoot is incredible. That railroad track should pay you money to stand on it.

HollyDolly said...

I loooooove this outfit! That plaid actually looks amazing with the leopard. Amazing.

Unknown said...

I looooveeee how you mix not only different patterns but different textures all together and it still looks all pulled together - that is utter fabulousness, right there!!

Way to set the bar for the rest of us :)

Such fun all the pattern and texture mixing...great outfit!

Marie a la Mode said...

Cuuuute outfit! You styled this perfectly!

I'm sad the holidays are over but happy to be able to save some money now that I don't have to shop for umpteen gifts or food and wine for dinner parties ; )

To be honest, I'm not loving this outfit. I've looked through your entire blog from beginning to end and this is the first outfit that I don't like. I think the leopard skirt + lacy tights + stiletto booties look a bit "street-walker"-ish to me. I love the top part of the outfit, though. And you're beautiful as always.

Happy New Year!

amanda said...

Anon- thanks for being nice about your comment. I can see your point. Hopefully my Mom doesn't read the comments and use this as back-up:)

Elle said...

you look gorgeous here- I love the pattern and texture mixing, it's something I wish I could do but am so bad at! and the location is amazing. Such great photos. and I really like those shoes.

Righteous Republic said...

LOVE the mix of prints and textures. Your blog is awesome. I will be back. :)

Ok, so I usually make a mental note of what I want to say as I scroll down your pictures. This is how it went in my mind today:

"Oh man, plaid under mohair, plus leopard print and long leather gloves? AWESOME!"

"And that graffiti back ground is just perfect."

"Oooh, train tracks."

"Wait, a trench?!? Argh! This is such a win outfit!"

"Hang on, there are two of her! How did she even do that? Oh man, this girl is so cool. I totally shouldn't gush in the comments though, I have a reputation to uphold after all..."

And that's how it happened.

Karla said...

That skirt is fly!! Loving the ALDO boots as well. Your pictures look awesome!

I love to see how people mix patterns but when I try to do it... I get nothing, just a big question mark. But I MUST try it!

Thanks for the inspiration.

You're dressed like a hooker?

those glasses look amazing on your face. or should i say your face makes those glasses look amazing. =)

tm said...

i'm lol-ing at the hooker/streetwalker comments. because naturally, heels + leopard + lace automatically equals harlot. o rly! :|

i totally dig the plaid + leopard combo.
