I know, right? This dress is really loud. I mean ear piercing, turn the volume down…no make that “hit mute” LOUD. And I LOVE IT! I thrifted this at a local store and it’s vintage Doncaster Tanner. I reworked it a bit; it had a thin elastic waist that I ripped out and took off about (you know what I’m going to say) 6 inches. I got more compliments on how I look than my dress which tells me, maybe color looks good on me. But at the end of the day, I really try not to care what someone thinks about what I’m wearing. If I feel great in it and it’s not inappropriate, isn’t that all that matters?
Under the heading of self discovery, I’ve been perusing a TON of blogs lately. Something common I see are colored tights. They look fabulous on everyone and I’ve been hot to hop on the bandwagon. I even wore purple tights (here) a few days ago with a vintage dress. I have discovered that I don’t like colored tights (neutrals, yes and maybe a deep maroon every now and then, but not COLORS) on me. I really really don’t. I feel goofy. I just don’t feel like ME. I see them everywhere and they’re fabulous, but on me, I feel clownish. I know, here’s where you say, “C’mon Serene. Seriously? You can wear that loud clown dress and not feel like ridiculous but you can’t put a pair of colored tights on? Reallllllllly?” What can I say? I’m very complicated!
