Shady Lady

My Wolfords have served me well and I had no doubt that these Shade tights would follow suit.  Unfortunately, they proved to be an obstinate accessory.  First, they were a size too big.  (If you plan to purchase these I’d recommend sizing down).  With the waistband up to my chest, the problem was solved.  Second, the front plane split of the two “shades” increased my potential of looking like a harlequin.  So I reused a maneuver from City Safari and layered the tights with some black knee socks.  I know black is an easy choice  for the outfit but I’ve chosen interesting pieces to appease.

VPL Doubly Thigh-High

When burdened with the dilemma of what to wear in bitter cold December, the best item to turn to is leg wear.  These VPL Doubly thigh-highs from the Fall 2008 Collection are great for such an occasion.  Known as the brand for making bold statements with color and reinventing underwear as outerwear, these thigh-highs excite more than classic black, but remain chic unlike some printed design mishaps.  Created in multiple color combinations, the contrast of the hues are most advantageous when paired with the perfect length skirt or dress.  Think short and the leggings will serve you well.  Worn with a Vince turtleneck, Richard Tyler vintage skirt, and Miss Sixty boots.

VPL Parkhurst Poncho

“I don’t do T and A,” says VPL designer Victoria Bartlett.  A seemingly contrary statement considering the name of her brand, Bartlett proves actions are stronger than words.  Reinventing intimates as layering pieces and proving herself an advocate of the ‘slouchy sexy’ silhouette, this stylist turned designer is definitely an innovator.  The VPL Parkhurst Poncho is styled with a vintage Richard Tyler Skirt, Sigerson Morrison Gladiator Sandals and a vintage Renoir Sun Cuff.
