When: Saturday February 20, 2010

Black sweater: Present from my brother (Europe)
Red tights: El Costo (Panama)
Brown belt: Present from my parents
Plaid shoes: Walmart
Brown Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Pearl necklace: Pasarella (Panama)

Where: Cooked some chilli with my boyfriend (yum!) and went to a party with some friends.

I am wearing one of my favorite shoes today!! I looove these plaid shoes I bought at Walmart (yes, Walmart). I decided to pair it with matching tights (red). Then I went with a retro look by adding lots of pearls, cat-eye make up, and red lipstick. I really like how it turned out!

  10. Pretty cool outfit and those red tights definitely send a message. It is not often that you wear black and you really look stunning with your reddish hair against the dress. It makes your eyes pop out. I like the overall effect of this outfit since the basic colors go well together. Loving those pearls.

  11. You look great in this creative look. The red tights jump out at you making an exciting combination with the black outfit. But what really tied it together for me were the shoes. As small as they are vs the entire outfit, its where my eyes finished with the lookover and left a nice comfortable finish to the entire outfit. Whenever I look back my focus is on the cute shoes which compliment the tights and is my focal point. jgm.

  12. The black with the pearls is so sophisticated. I love the red tights with the plaid shoes. So fun!
