Jester







there's nothing like waking up to a package at your front door. even though you know exactly what it is, you can't help but get those childlike feelings when your ripping it open, and since i have so many packages coming my way (shopping manic...see previous post), this one actually was a surprise at my doorstep. which item could it be???

well. even though i'm excited to get all my new things, i was a little bit more delighted to find it was my harlequin tights. i wanted something really fun and quirky to add to my wardrobe, just to spice things up when i'm feeling colorful, so i took the plunge and ordered these babies on amazon. they were a perfect match for my new chambray button up too!

Vintage Oscar de la Renta Blazer: Goodwill $4
Chambray Blouse: Saver's $5
Shorts: F21 $20
Vintage Heels: Saver's $6
Vintage Purse: Thrift $2
Jester Tights: Amazon $15
Bow Tie: Gift from my sister.

The tights are very cute especially with that whole country girl vibe you got going on with those shoes, I have not got a blazer yet and I am on a shopping ban til April I am so upset.

I just read your comment. Thank you so much! It means a lot to hear that from someone. Since June my life has been really rough, emotionally. I have never been depressed before, but I think after he left me I was depressed for like six months. I don't like to talk about it on my blog so it remains kind of a sanctuary where all that stuff doesn't exist. I think I'm finally to the point now where I am truly happy and moving forward, which is such a great place to be.
I can't wait to go on the Winnebago trip, it's going to be the time of my life, I can just tell!

P.S. This outfit is amazing. You rock it so hard!

I love the tights! I actually collect things with jesters on them. I started when I was in high school and fell in love with the jesters in our madrigal dinners. I even played one (dorky, I know) at the Ren Faire in my state. Even since then, I have collected random jester items!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

oh my god oh my god oh my god. Those tights! RIDICULOUSLY FABULOUS! and those shoes! UGH! This is too perfect for words...

Hunter said...

This is "jest" plain fanta-ridicu-tabulous. I had to think about these tights for a minute, but decided I really like them. It's just that I myself would have nothing to wear with them. You, however, have always got something up your sleeve.

Diane said...

oh my god! THOSE ARE THE BEST TIGHTS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mel said...

What awesome tights! I think I saw something like that but I was afraid I'd look silly in them, but seeing how wonderful you look in them makes me want to go get a pair!

I simply ADORE those tights! I have seen black and white Harlequin patterened ones before, but never color ones. They don't ever look like a costume.
Perfect outfit.

What Would a Nerd Wear said...

Maria Confer said...

Beautiful Starr. I love the bowtie and blazer. Your tights add such a fun punch of color.
