Color Story

I have always wanted to try a bright colored tight, but I have been aprensive. I guess i have always thought of bright colored tights as like neon and scary and kind of something people wear to raves. I dont know why, but thats what I think of! Luckily a friend of mine has convinced me otherwise.

Jessica from Midwest Muse can literally pull of any color of tight and it’s adorable. The last time I saw her she was wearing these burgundy colored tights with a skirt and a blouse that matched perfectly. It was so cute. I expressed to her my concerns about bright colored raver tights and she said to choose tasteful colors, not neons.

It really makes sense. It is so easy to match with jewel tones, and brights are especially nice for spring. So here I had my first attempt! I chose these cobalt blue tights given to me by my friend Ashley. I took the tights, went to my closet, and dove in to find the perfect blue to match it. When I emerged, i had found this accordion pleated dress I got from Wet Seal a couple months before hand.
I have recently been into mixing different bright colors so this dress was a perfect choice! So here it is Jessica, my first attempt at colored tights. I hope I made you proud and didn’t put you to shame!

Here is Jessica with a very cute striped dress and colored tight outfit! Check out her blog for more colored tight options.

The 330 Clothing Swap

Ladies, I have some very exciting news! To those who are not already aware of it, The 330 group of bloggers is hosting North East Ohio's very first public clothing swap!

If you have been reading my blog you may have already seen how they work through my frock parties. This is about the same thing amplified by 100 for the public, with multiple vendors and prizes!

Here is the general run down for what the clothing swap has in store:
-you bring your older, gently or never worn clothes that go with the season(this time would be spring and summer) and you swap them for something that you would love. This way you will empty your closet and gain new items to love for your wardrobe with out spending a dime.
-You will sign up through pay pal, go to to find out how, and you will save a spot for yourself in the swap! admissions will be five dollars and be sure to sign up because spots are filling quick!
-The swap is May 20Th, however before hand we are having two drop off dates for you to bring your things, that way we will organize them for you and that is how we will build our point system for you to swap.
-Be sure to bring clothes that are clean and in good shape, if you bring an old gym shirt it will be donated to good will.
-Anything that is not chosen at the swap will be donated to good will.
-Gift bags will be given to attendees as well as opportunities to shop our vendors and get manicure and pedicures provided by Studio MC.

This is very exciting for our area because it is the first public swap! Hopefully it can generate some buzz and can become and annual thing!
