Maybe.[/caption] Though a little bit like a girl on the run in a fashionable prison jumpsuit; I mostly just stunned people with my sassy brightness in this one.  This is why I jazzed it up with a large and in charge black patent leather belt with itty bitty white polka dots pushing through.  On top of that I wore my mother's scarf as mentioned in a previous OOTD, which complemented the brown frye boots (yes, I'm obsessed) and the orange in the dress.  I also added textured charcoal (ish) tights.  I really think you can't go wrong with wild socks and tights.  My favorite place for things that go under your skirts and into your boots: Sock Dreams on Powell. Lastly, the jewels.

On the ears: [caption id="attachment_463" align="aligncenter" width="199" caption="wise owl earrings"]wise owl earrings[/caption] I wore these in teal to offset the softly wild orange.  Here are the colors to choose from: [caption id="attachment_464" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="all the wise old owls"]all the wise old owls[/caption] These pictures are direct links to my online shop.  These colorful wisies will be GREAT for spring (or any time you need a wise one near your ears).  Please specify the color you want in the message-to-seller section when checking out. Here is me in the studio getting ready to fill orders.  kissy poo! Unfortunately, the following picture is not a direct link to purchase.  I am not for sale:
