I was going through some different fall collections on elle.com when I stumbled upon the Built By Wendy '09 collection and immediately fell in love! Since my brain is not working right now (for no good reason at all) I'm going to avoid writing as much as I can and just list my favorite things about this line!
- All the red... red lips, red tights, red shoes! It makes for such a classic vintage look, I only wish that I could pull off red lipstick. It just doesn't work with my olive skin tone.
-Prints! I'm in love with all of the polka dot pieces in this collection. With the red lips they remind me of my favorite 40's looks, perhaps something I saw Kate Beckinsale or James King wearing in Pearl Harbor.
-Tights, tights, tights....man have I missed those things! I would wear tights everyday of the summer if it weren't so dang hot, I just love what they do for an outfit. I'm especially glad to see that the textured tights are back since I'm not one to wear the printed ones that have been in style over the spring and summer-- I just can't seem to style those.
