Fatshion Faceoff: Coloured Tights

This weeks Fatshion Faceoff challenge item is coloured stockings- one of my all time favourite outfit punching things to wear! If you haven't heard me raving about We Love Colors yet, you must be living on another planet. I literally cannot recommend them enough- they are without a doubt the comfiest stockings I've ever worn. Available in over fifty colours and with a size chart that caters to up to 170ks/6foot, they pretty much have everyone covered. And amongst my seemingly ever-growing collection of We Love Color's tights, is this spanking hot purple pair!

Dress and belt: New Look Inspire (belt bought separately)
Blazer: ASOS Curve
Bag and ring: eQuip
Necklace: Modcloth
Tights: We Love Colors
Flats: Crocs

Last night we went out to the Twilight Markets to stock up on fresh produce and other such mid-week market goodies. I was much more lavishly dressed than I normally would be for such an outing, but I wanted to show off a way you can wear coloured stockings without looking too 'alternative' or dressed down (both ways I tend to normally wear them!)

As you can see, I've finally had some shape cut into my hair. I've literally been growing it our for five years (from a short spiky red hair-do!) and have been waiting for the length before I cut into it. I even toyed with the idea of going back to brunette, but at the moment I'm totally loving the bangs! What do you think??

The dress is an old favourite from New Look Inspire that I picked up on our Holiday of Awesome. There is something about stripes. They are always such an eye-catching outfit maker. Couple that with the super bright tights and I'm basically walking around screaming to be looked at! I feel like the structure of the blazer balances out the attention seeking boldness of the rest of the outfit, its the perfect professional finish to an otherwise loud look (plus, I suppose me being loud in general probably doesn't help ;).

Can't wait to see all my brightly coloured stocking-ed Fatshion Faceoff babes this week!
