Breaking the Rules

Yesterday, I decided to wear heels because I haven't in such a long time.I love to wear heels because I feel like a normal height and I walk better. Generally, I clomp around like an elephant. But in heels I'm a gazelle; not a graceful one. Jacket-H&M,Dress-gift,Tights-Urban Outfitters,Shoes-thrift
I love these tights and they cause confusion. Sadly, I think this may be the last time I wear them because they have a giant run in the back that I didn't notice until the day was almost over. I'm breaking the "fashion rule" of mixing black and brown but sometimes rules need to be broken. These shoes make the most lovely sound when walking. Since it was oddly warm I decided to get a bit more adventurous in my picture taking. I really like this one.
What fashion rules do you break?

I think all fashion rules are meant to be broken. I mean, black and brown look AWESOME together, there is nothing wrong with wearing white jeans in January, and mixing metallics is chic and fashion forward, not faux pas!

The thing about fashion rules is that I know very few of them :) Occasionally someone points out I am breaking one but I think they're all equally made for breaking :D

Gorgeous shoes and those tights are pretty spectacular too, shame about the run

Have a great weekend!

Love the pics! I have to say i love brown and black together, but i really hate red & green combos (except when they're together in one print)

SabinePsynopsis said...

All the way with you! I'm a big fan of black and brown combined (also of black and blue) and of heels - clomping or not, backpain or not...

Michal said...

That dress is awesome!! Sorry about your tights. ): I get so sad when I get a run in one of my pairs. In answer to your question, I am constantly breaking the black&brown rule. I love mixing those together. I also wear socks with sandals (only heels though!) and white after labor day. :)

Thanks for your comment on my blog!!
