I'm not super crazy about purple. I don't feel like it's a good color on me. Although for some strange reason I seem to have incorporated a lot of it into my wardrobe over the last couple of years. The dress alone was just too purple for me and somewhat unstructured for a day at work without heels. I thought the vest pulled it together, toned down the purple, and made it a bit more professional.
Obviously, this outfit is all about the tights. Even though I sit behind a desk all day, I still managed to get a few questionable looks and comments about them.
