Ask Adelita: Snausages by Kamie Kahlo

black n brown keilbasa

black n brown keilbasa by Adelita Style featuring a sweetheart neckline dress

Dear Adelita-

I have a color dilemma. I have a great patterned dress that has lots of fun colors in it but no black. I would prefer to wear my black tights instead of brown (my legs tend to look like ground pork stuffed in casings if I don't wear black) and brown boots. Is it okay to wear black and brown together?

Yours,
Sausage Legs
 


My Dear Little Keilbasa,

Yes you can wear black and brown together but if you are worried about showcasing your legs, this might not be the best bet for you. Wearing a patterned dress without black then brown then black again may cut you up into little bite-sized pieces. We may be hungry for fashion but we don't want that! Try the darkest brown legging you can find and then, yes, you can still wear your black boots. Just don't try brown shoes with black pants! Ewww.

Here's a little Polyvore to get you in the right direction. If it's good enough for Chanel, Burbery, Vuitton and little leopards running around Africa, it's good enough for us!

Love,

Today's AdelitaStyle Self Portrait by Kamie Kahlo

click on this image for a closer look!

Okay, get ready... I am officially entering my black period. I may mix it up with grays and I might take a walk over to creams and browns if I am feeling particularly colorful but it will mostly be about black on black on black. Texture and textiles. I don't usually tell you what to do but, you MUST take a look at this image closeup so don't forget to click on it before you leave! Today I will be carrying my KOOBA patent leather handbag and inside it my TANO oversized wallet and HK KUROMI keys. Taking me there will be my wedding shoes. Yes! I wore these amazing, fantastic RICHARD TYLER satin pumps in black when D and I eloped, in fact I wore all black. (Have to show you that picture later.) And keeping me warm, layers; THREE DOTS leggings, BEBE slit pinstriped mini, THREE DOTS long sleeve leaf print top, a vintage butterfly shell and my new XHILARATION faux lamb gilet. Since it's getting darn chilly I will bring my FOREVER21 faux leather jacket for backup. And in case anyone is looking, I am wearing the classic OPI polish in Lincoln Park After Dark.
