Ask Adelita: Snausages by Kamie Kahlo

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?

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!

Not Your Mother's Trench, Not Your Father's Bomber by Kamie Kahlo

Burberry was founded in 1856 arriving as a collection of sturdy outerwear. As it grew, the house outfitted the first expedition to the South Pole and even adapted coats for WWI soldiers. This is where their famous trench began. After several shifts into luxury branding, the name had become synomous with plaid and check patterned accessories and linings. Roberto Menichetti took the company to another level with the introduction of high fashion and Burberry Prosum in 1998 - Fall 2001. And in the Spring of 2002 Christopher Bailey, fresh from Tom Ford's Gucci, turned the conservative line sexy. Still London, still trenches and bombers but with a fusion of luxe punk. As Rachel Zoe would say, "I die!"
