I saw her at the bus stop



This is one of the outfits that I am actually excited to wear. When I won these House of Holland tights in a giveaway hosted by My Passport to Style, I was delighted with the styling challenge they presented. I dreamed up this outfit on one sleepless night, and ever since then I couldn't wait for the opportunity to make it come to life.







dress - thrifted ; sweater, boots - H&M ; purse - vintage Coach ; hat, belt - vintage ; tights - House of Holland

Those tights are amazing! from far away they look like a patchwork quilt! Also, the colour of your cardigan is beautiful. You look like a more colourful Stevie Nicks!
