Tangerine Tart

...written by Leia

This outfit was inspired by Gabrielle Solis, the character played by Eva Longoria in Desperate Housewives. I think she's the sexiest, most stylish character, and she's often seen wearing white jeans, a bright top, vertiginous stiletto heels, and a clutch.

I wore this to have delicious teriyaki tofu at my favorite Japanese restaurant with a couple of girlfriends.

Welcome to Wisteria Lane!

This was my first outdoor photoshoot and I felt so self-conscious! Thanks Katie for being such a patient photographer.

I think tangerine is such a perfect color for Spring (and such a tasty fruit!) Would you wear tangerine? What colors would you pair it with?

P.S. Today is election day in the UK! I'm exercising my right to vote for the first time and I'm so excited.

I love tangerine and orange too! I have a few tops with those colors in my closet.

You look so fresh, Leia! I like this style on you, casual yet so chic. Gabrielle is my favorite character too! :)
