I’m obsessed with this color of shoe. It’s one of the most popular colors this season and every time I see it, it makes me happy. That being said, I don’t see myself being able to wear it with every outfit and it’s not a classic so I’m hesitant to shell out the big bucks for a Giuseppe Zanotti ($795).
This pair in the “Saffire” [sic] color, by Ivanka Trump, caught my eye. I have to admit, I’m a bit of a label snob and the name on the label is not one I would brag about but the shoe has all the elements that would work well for me in this color….and it has a nice high heel (a must for this lady!) that is four inches but with a 1-inch platform that would balance it out to be comfortable.
I can see it with jeans or a dress and the reviews on Endless.com are very positive. They are currently half price and, at only $70.00, I can see them as a worthwhile addition to my wardrobe and look forward to wearing them all season long.
I’ll take them!
I often follow and view other blogs so that I can enjoy the style of the fashionable women out there. Unfortunately, many of the looks are not “doable” for the average woman. Today’s entry for “What I Wore” caught my eye. Mad Men fashions are all the rage lately and Jessica Quirk has this look down pat. I love the colors and fabrics that she used in putting together this stylish but economical look. Of course Jessica is much more talented than some of us (okay, I mean Me) because she sewed this dress in a weekend!
Anyway, you may find some inspiration in her blog entry, as well as see some other fabulous yet practical looks at her site.
Don’t you find that on the days that you run out of the house with no makeup and wearing disheveled clothes to do a quick errand, you run into everyone you know? I’m making more of an effort to do that last minute mirror check before I dash out. Not only will I look better but I’ll get my errands done faster because we know that you never run into anyone when you’re looking your best.
I’m ready for destiny.
I attended the wedding yesterday of friends of mine who have been courting for thirteen years! We were so happy to see them tie the knot. In between celebrating, I had the opportunity to snap a couple of pictures.
The groom has never been a conformist and I love the way he expressed himself in a fabulous tuxedo complete with fedora. The bride was quite elegant in her wedding attire adorned with a lovely facinator veil.
You’ll also see a very stylish lady wearing a striking hat. She announced that she was in her seventies. I loved her style!
I’m wearing a beautiful Badgley Mischka dress that was given to me by my husband several years ago along with Claudio Milano Swarovski crystal shoes, a purse I picked up on my travels, a Swarovski Lunar Moonlight necklace, and a White House Black Market bracelet.
We often look at other photos for inspiration but how many of us actually follow through with attempting to replicate ”the look”. I saw a beautiful hairstyle on Pinterest that inspired me. Last night, I decided to try it out and see if I could copy it.
It’s never easy working on hair at the back of your head but I’m not unhappy with the results. I even received a few compliments.
To achieve this look, I used a clamp-free ceramic curling iron and an antique-looking hair clip that I bought at Walgreens.
