Hello long neglected blog! It's not that I haven't had anything to post, but that I've been lacking the time and ambition to post it! I got a bit of Christmas money so of course I went on a shopping spree (or two)! Unfortunately for my wallet I spent more than a bit of money... hm. I'm returning one thing so maybe that'll make me feel slightly better...
The first item I want to show off is this purple dress I got from the clearance rack at Charlotte Russe. It's got a vintagy feel and I think it's elegant without being stuffy. I finally (after a long time of wanting one) got a wide belt yesterday so I can cinch the waist if I want to.
I stopped at a local consignment shop (New Enuf) and stumbled upon these amazing shoes. I picked them up with my sister-in-law in mind because they were her size, but I put them on my feet and they fit me! Good for me, bummer for her. They're yellow leather pumps made in Spain. They were even 50% off. Super cool!!
Always a sucker for buttons and happy colors, this skirt caught my attention right away. It hits a few inches above my knees and is both cute and comfortable. Again, it looks vaguely vintage, so I've gotta love it.
OK, here's a major splurge for me. I've decided recently that I'm going to stop buying cheap shoes and start buying more leather. I'm also addicted to boots. I have some amazing vintage black "riding boots" that aren't the most comfortable things on earth. I have black heeled lace-up boots. But I don't have any basic black boots that I can actually walk around in. I found these at 50% off and loved them, but walked away because I dind't want to fork over the cash. I found some awesome trendy boots for about half the price and texted hubby, "$30 super cool trendy boots or $70 leather investment boots," and he answered me "investment," so I hurried back to these babies. They're a teensy bit loose at the heel so I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep them (maybe I could get those little stick-on "petals"?). I love them, so I'm hoping my feet do too.
Cost: 70.00 (ouch!)
Any thoughts/votes/suggestions on the boots?
