Why on earth did it take me so long to realize how amazing coloured panty hose are? I mean, really though? I used to swear up and down that I would never, ever wear them because I couldn’t possibly see they would look good on me but I admit that I’m wrong. Very, very wrong. This autumn I intend to stock up on every colour of the rainbow and wear each colour proudly. Coloured tights are such a great way of adding some spunk to your outfit while remaining cozy and warm. It looks like I have a new obsession but I am not fighting it.
Sometime last week (remind me to start posting my outfit photos sooner, please!) I decided I was going to browse Addition Elle’s new Michel Studio line. I was taken by a few of their items and I couldn’t resist purchasing the leather panel skirt. Addition Elle was kind enough to hook me up with a gift card so I took advantage and nabbed two things I had been eying. Now, I know realistically I won’t be buying $80 skirts on the regular but sometimes you just have to have that specific piece in your wardrobe. I’m really, really impressed with how warm and cozy this skirt is. I’m also really impressed that Addition Elle seems to be including younger generation friendly attire in their selection of clothing. I remember the days where I’d walk into Addition Elle and I’d find stuff that I could see my grandmother wearing but it seems like they’re really dead set on including stuff us younger kids can appreciate too. I hit up a few other stores when I was there and ended up making a small haul video out of it. I’m still new to this vlogging thing but I really enjoy making and editing videos. I might try to make more videos in the coming months and definitely continue the haul/OoTD video trend.
After making this video I did notice a rip in my leather panel skirt but I’ve been assured that I purchased a defected item. I will, at this point, believe that that’s the case but I’ll keep everyone updated on whether or not this happens again. I wouldn’t want to sit here and talk up an item that failed me for such an expensive price. Either way, I still think its a great piece and definitely something I never thought I’d see Addition Elle put out. I’m really excited to pull an outfit together with both of my Addition Elle pieces.
I’d also quickly like to express my love for my new earrings from The Clothing Show. I purchased those beautiful babies for a mere $5 but I seriously cannot remember the name of the booth I nabbed them from. I’m really upset about that too because I had a great time talking with the owners. Either way, they’re beautiful and I’m in love.
