i'm not sure if lighting or wishful thinking is to blame, but when i got dressed yesterday morning, i swear these tights weren't this bright. but they are. which i discovered when i got to work and i was under florescent lighting.
i've had these tights for the better part of a year, and i keep trying to make them work... but truthfully, they just don't. i ordered them online, and they looked much more rust. the name also suggested a more rusty brown orange shade. 'sienna'. that to me doesn't scream orange. but when they arrived, they were indeed orange.
i have no problems with bright colours. i love wearing colours. but for some unknown reason, i have a hard time wearing bright or pastel tights, even with a more neutral dress. so yesterday, when i put this dress on and was looking at my tights selection, i thought to myself, "well, there's oranges in the dress, so i'll try these tights." i think it was a mistake, and took away from the colours and prettiness of this dress. it may also be that i'm just used to more neutral based tights. i think it's time to retire these tights and just suck up the $18 loss.
also, you'll notice the room i'm in is a new 'blog' room. it's the room i mentioned in the fall that we're trying to change/update. we've decided to make it more of a study, so there's lots of wood furniture, ships, paintings... and whiskey. lots and lots of whiskey.
we found this old tube radio on kijiji (canadian version of craigslist) for $40. i think it's the best $40 ever spent. we're going to convert it into a bar, as you may have guessed. there was a turntable inside, which Dominic has already removed. we'll leave the doors open, and have glasses and straws, etc. inside, and the bottles up-top.
we're still on the hunt for more furniture for the room, and we'll be painting the walls soon. it's definitely a work in progress.
