Outfit of the Day: Orange Betsius
Posted on February 12, 2009
In all its ridiculousness, I kind of really love this get up. This is another drooly (good thing) pick from the Bargain Hunting local-store clearance show I attended at the top of February. I saw this number and immediately fell in love. It comes from another new favorite local designer and her flagship store: Idom. Modi Soondarotok is the name behind the happy color designs. She was at the crazy show herself and I was immediately taken by her genuine, down to earth awesomeness. The price tag on this dress floored me. Marked down to $30, it had been $235. I DEFINITELY felt lucky to find this gal, her awesome store, and her beautiful designs. Thank you, Susan, for making sure I wouldn't miss this gem.
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.
One of my first designs. This one reminds me of something a royal woman would wear---BUT a free royal woman...like one who wouldn't wear a shirt with it...and with lots of colors, she would dance. On the ears:
I wore these in teal to offset the softly wild orange.

Wow, I look so serious in this photo. I hope I'm gonna be okay. ***Song of the Moment: Orange Blossom Special, by Johnny Cash***
