that joke isn't funny anymore

10-29-0910-29-09
vintage silk top, forever 21 cardigan, thrifted button up skirt, vintage etienne aigner oxfords

Outfit from last week that I never managed to post. My camera is frustrating me more and more as time passes. No idea what's going on with this weird pinkish/purple haze. Is it just my monitor? I'm wearing navy blue, black, and brown in case you can't tell. Yes, those three together. If I hear another person say that you can't pair any of those colors together I'm going to slap them.

Guess what, I'm also wearing tights with socks. I posted an outfit on a Livejournal community once and was chewed out by some [expletive] who acted as if it was the crime of the century that I had combined the two. Umm, really? There's a reason I don't post there anymore...

I don't know why people adhere to sill conformist ideas about fashion. If it looks good - and it does! - then do it! I love your sensible, level headed approach.
Besides, rememeber that old saying "Blue and Green should not be seen" and how gorgeous are they together?

Q said...

I meant "silly" conformist ideas...

I think this outfit is very well put together and well structured. I've never seen someone do tights and socks before but I think it looks really good. I'm of the school of if it looks good do it.

Carissa said...

wow. this really look good - a great idea to dress up as a teacher in my school's teachers day for tomorrow :) you've inspired me!

Everything looks so nice together (the hair esp, your bangs rock!) for me, I just don't get it why people have to be so obnoxious about what we wear.

socks with tights are the best! love the outfit. black & brown in my fav color combo.

kurarin said...

you look beautiful in this simple and classy outfit that manages to be comfy at the same time.

i agree with your stance. those rules were probably set by people who couldn't find a way to make the combinations work. why settle for their standards?

thesecretrose said...

You look seriously pretty? Prettily serious? I love it :)

Mina said...

Backwaan said...

I s this with your new slr? if it is maybe your whte balance needs tweaking, or could be the iso. just an idea! love the outfit :)

alison said...

I love this outfit! I pair black & brown together quite often, their all neutrals so they all live happily ever. Anyways, cute pictures & love the shoes!

Lindsey said...

I hate people who feel that everybody has to dress by the book. That's the reason tweenage mall stores are taking over the world.

博子 川久保 said...

Well that's just ridiculous because your outfits are always fantastic. I thought the rules of fashion were there are no rules.

Clare said...

I LOVE this outfit no matter how many fashion 'rules' it breaks! Your hair is looking wonderful too. Maybe I should cut my fringe back in...

Anonymous said...

Ah, you look gorgeous! You do this kind of outfit so well.

Breaking the 'rules' is what keeps things interesting. I love navy + black and black + brown.

SJ said...

This looks great! Screw the haters.

I'm from Brazil and a big fan of your blog! =)

K. Julien said...

the tights and socks together looks really cute, people are so annoying with their rules. This is a great outfit.

Clothes Are Cute

Jyun said...

I really really love your hair to pieces and how it compliments your apple cheeks. It's like your signature, don't ever change it :P

P.S. You could pull off any schoolgirl look.

pinkpeas said...

hot_fashion? lmfao. if it's that community (which it most likely is) was filled with a BUNCH of bitches who thought they were a love child of brilliant designers I swear. so mean to everyone and that's why no one posts there anymore except people trying to sell their stuff :]

michelle said...

i don't think anyone posts at wiwt2 anymore haha. thank goodness some of the good dressers have their own blogs now

Emilie said...

Ha I agree completely, there are situations where certain shades don't look as good as other color combinations but your outfit is gorgeous...I would happily accept every one of those pieces into my wardrobe.

annakim said...

amen sister! there are no more rules. as long as you look good, who cares!

Nana said...

how cute is this outfit?!^^

Neekoh said...

Hah, obviously people need to learn that in fashion, there are no rules. Do what makes you happy, girl! I love this outfit - colors, socks and all!

Fashion Intel said...

So cute! I vote you the person who can pull off the bun the best.

mango said...

i love the outfit ESPECIALLY the tights with socks. lol. that seems really silly to chew you out for something someone doesn't like what you're wearing on YOUR blog..........oh people can be sooooo silly sometimes.

I LOVE YOUR outfits =]

Daphné said...

I don't understand why people are hating on the tights with socks thing. I think it looks great!

Love this outfit! It's adorable and your legs look soo long! :D

Laura said...

One of the best outfits ever!

Kat said...

everything is perfect here:
your hair, the socks: great :)

nickiefrye.etsy said...

Uh oh, socks with tights. Tsk Tsk. KIDDING. Whatever! I love doing a little something different. I haven't done socks w/ tights in a number of years though. I remember it being rather uncomfortable. Anyway, cute outfit. I think the varying lengths (cardigan, skirt, high waist) are great, socks or no.

Suzy said...

I'm all over this outfit. It is so perfect. Before I even read what you wrote, I was like 'god, i am loving black and navy with brown lately, and she just aced it.'

Kennedy said...

this looks so perfect on you! your outfits always come together in the most sophisticated and effortless way. that must be nice <3

Emily said...

it looks so effortless!! i'm always hesitant to mix navy and black and brown, but i might have to try it out in the near future!!

adele said...

i'd like to inform you that you are in posession of my new favourite blog.
i love everything about it, the photos, the fact that you have the same minolta camera as me (that i haven't figured out how to use properly yet), the documentation of your life. it's fascinating, i just read the back entries.
you're my inspiration for when i get back into blogging when my exams are over. keep up the excellent quality.
your clothes and your life are both adorable!

KittyCate said...

I love this outfit, it's just perfect. And for the record I adore tights with socks.

PS: I've just recently discovered your blog and I absolutely love it, your style and your photos are so amazing!

if it looks good, who cares about the [fashion] rules? who set those rules was/were probably never creative. :D
