Outfit of the week 20/10/07

So... y'all did not like the last outfit of the week so much. I guess it may have been something of an acquired taste.

This one, I like. So there. It's based on this cute but plain grey dress from River Island, that needed some livening up. Yellow goes great with grey and - unlike when teamed with black - you don't end up looking like a giant bumble bee.

I really like the grey knee socks layered over yellow tights - my new obsession is layering hosiery. I have to say, Accessorize is my new favourite place to get coloured tights because they have them really thick (90 denier) in a variety of bright colours. They also have some amazing patterned tights.

For the rest, I thought I'd try some clashy colour play to de-Stepford the look. Hence the different coloured, belt and shoes. But I couldn't resist the grey bag with the black patent accents. I think it all works well together.
