Gipsy Back Seam Bow Tights in Black - Snagged off ASOS.com for $12.55 Retail
When I want to keep things simple for a night out on the town I always reach for a little black dress. This one in particular is basically a t-shirt dress cut with a deep v neckline in the front. It is by LnA, a company which makes great casual basics for everyday wear. I snagged this black deep v tee dress off of Gilt for under $30. I decided to dress it up a little bit so I started looking through my tights and found these adorable never-been-worn Gipsy back seam bow ones. It says on the label they were made in Italy so that made me pretty happy. I snagged them off of the ASOS website a couple months ago and must have forgotten about them. I realize that I didn't have the bow seam lined up perfectly, but we took these photos after a late dinner in downtown Denver so I had been wearing them all day. It really pays to have some cute tights in your closet so you can make them the focal point of your outfit. Plus, they don't break the bank.
I couldn't resist this Helmut Lang denim and leather jacket during the sale on Gilt Groupe. I snagged it at the same time I snagged the droid leather jacket in the previous post. This one looks much cuter than any of the photos I have seen online and I see it is still full price at places like Net-a-Porter. If you find it on sale you should definitely snag it because it is really great quality and it can dress up or dress down any dress you have in your closet. My boyfriend really loved the jacket on me. I like the fact that it has leather sleeves and a leather collar, but the body is denim. They call this jacket the Helmut Lang dirty vintage jacket, probably because the denim looks a little dirty and like it could possibly be vintage.
For accessories I wore an R.J. Graziano crystal link necklace. I wear this necklace a lot to dress up old t-shirts or sweatshirts and it seemed to complement the grungy denim and leather jacket. For shoes I wanted to wear something tough that I could walk around the streets of Denver in and I knew my Alaia hiking boots would do the job. These are probably my favorite shoes of all time because they are so comfortable, durable, and just all around gorgeous. I like wearing them with dresses to toughen up the look. I think they look pretty sweet with the back seam bow tights.
