What I Wore: Ompaloompa in A Purple Skirt

Skirt, Åhlens; tights, American Apparel; Shirt, Street Wear Society, and much more flattering in person; shoes, Rampage, bag, somewhere in Iceland. You can't really see it in any of the pictures, but I am wearing the ring from my last post, which I think may become a signature piece.

These tights do make me look a bit like an ompaloompa, but who doesn't love little orange men?

You can't really tell, but my hair was in a very high ponytail, basically an eruption of big, loose curls form the back of me head. I stuck in a toy wand from a friends birthday party for good measure.

I have no idea why I don't wear these earrings more often, I really like them!

And a final shot, cause what would a What I Wore post be without at least one demented facial expression?

I could talk, or type, I guess, for hours about how much I love this outfit. Instead, I'm just going to say that this is possibly one of my favourite outfits to date. And I have had outfits that I really adored.

Thoughts? Requests?

Love, Rosie
