Pin Stripes and Apple Tights

Photobucket

There's nothing quite like a good Urban Outfitters sale find. I got this dress from a store in NYC and I'm a little bit enamored with it. I'm not really a bow girl, but I love how subtle and unique the back is to this dress. Not to mention it fits like a dream. And the pin stripes (which are also not usually my style) match statement candy-apple-red tights so marvelously. I'd probably wear this outfit every day if I could. It even has pockets.

I look unavoidably tired in these pictures, which is probably due to the fact that a friend of mine from Scotland came to visit for my birthday (24, baby!), and we sort of annihilated my liver. I need some quality time with my bed and a good book pretty desperately. At least the tripod I'm borrowing from Bretton did it's job well. I still need some practice with it, but now I can post more than once a month. More to come!
