Oh my goodness, I think I have met Alice in Wonderland’s shoes and do not plan on giving them back to her! These shoes are like no other, they’re more of a museum piece than something functional, I don’t know how it was done, but it’s a damn good job well done. The details, the intricacies, the colors, the rose buds, the foliage, the leaves, the silver straps……aaagghhhhhh, I am obsessed. And so I leave you with this:
Now for the rest of the outfit, I decided to put together some favorite pieces, because I was in such a celebratory mood. I’m actually surprised no one stopped to ask me for the time!

I was at the store the other week and picked up a few items to try on, and kept it to a minimum because I wasn’t in the mood to change in and out of clothes. First up is this highly-coveted item that I’d been adoring for a bit:
So On-A-Wing Blouse, I have some beef with you, just a little bit. I really adored you from afar, and really thought you were different from all the other blouses I had laid eyes upon. When we finally met, I was still amazed, and on the moment decided I had to try you on and satisfy my quench, and that’s when I discovered the real you. You’re pretty from afar but a pain to put on. Even before putting you on, I had to warm you up and undo ALL your buttons, and then once on, had to redo ALL the buttons again (stopped midway). For the type of relationship I’m looking for, that is just too much work. I mean, what about those days when I want to wear you but only have 5 minutes to get dressed- it could never work. Plus, I have to go up a size with you, b/c as my regular size 0, you were more snug than necessary. So I’ll continue to adore you from afar, but with caution.
Another skirt that has me swooning, the From Monet Skirt. The best part about this piece is the draping silk. I love how the shape doesn’t just hang or hug curves, but creates its own direction. The material is beautiful in my opinion and love that it’s silk, so it’s really soft and can also be versatile. I tried on the xs and it fit great, and it also didn’t hurt that the skirt stretches some so there’s definitely a bit of wiggle room. And the bestest part? this skirt has pockets, which is definitely a must. On the wishlist for now, because my head was screaming that I already own 1,593 flowered skirts.
And finally, the Emerald Cascade Blouse. Initially this blouse reminded me of all the other blouses I have from when I used to work, but when I put it on, it gave me a more relaxed feel. Really dig the ahem, emerald color, and the waist tie which ahem, accentuates my waist (lots of repetitions tonight). Another silk piece which makes me happy because it’s soft and I feel kind of sophisticated. Really like the flow of the blouse as well, but nothing worth paying full price for.
