Originally I would have christened this look with a more schoolgirl-associated name, but as soon as the newsboy cap hit my head the first thing I thought of was, of course, a newsboy/postman. After belting a baby-doll LBD, throwing on a pair of thigh high socks (probably knee high on the average person turned thigh high on me) and smothering my lips in purple lipstick in the hopes of feminizing the look/not looking too much like an olden day mailman, this is the final result. It had to be this particular pair of thigh highs because 1) I'm obsessed with them, 2) they add a much needed pop of colour to the outfit and 3) in my opinion, orange and purple together go hand in hand and is my favourite colour combination.
