- Are these cone heeled shoes dated? And a WIW. ETA- Close Ups of Shoes
- WIW: Vernal Equinox
- Inspired by Anna: My version of the boring comfortable outfit
- WIW -- Loose and Tight Pants Comparison
1. WIW today for a dinner party. This came together in about 10 minutes, if that (I actually wore the pants to work). March might be a little late for burgundy. What do you think? Do you feel weird wearing autumnal colors in Spring?
2/3. Question about these booties. They are comfortable and I like the low ankle position. But the cone heels are a little teeter-y and dated. I've been thinking of getting them re-heeled. Or is it not worth it, given these shoes also have those Sharpei folds, another dead giveaway for their pre-YLF, 2010 vintage. Sorry the pictures aren't very close-up, hope you can make out the overall look of them.
Thanks for looking and weighing in!
ETA -- added shoe close-ups
This is such a typically "me" outfit. I wonder if I am in a style rut. The jeans are new Current/Elliot "Rolled Skinny" in Bleeker wash. The ones the Barney's SA thought were more age appropriate than the distressed kind. O_o
I normally would not post a scowling face (2nd pic) but I decided to do so to prove a point. It really is true what Andy Rooney said. The cheapest plastic surgery is a smile. I think I look a good 5 years older when I scowl.
Thanks for looking!
Thermofix sweatshirt - Zara
Boyfriend jeans - True Religion Cameron "Baja" wash
Booties - Report Marks
Super simple, super comfortable. I added a silver leather bracelet later in the day. I almost returned this top because, a month ago, the forum preferred the other Zara white sweatshirt. But TinaB suggested keeping both. I am so glad she did, I love both of them but especially this one!
So -- style questions. What do you think of this cropped boxy top proportion? And paired with bf jeans rather than skinnies (mildly volume on volume)? I would have worn these with another, lighter pair of bf's but I'm at my bf's and didn't bring many clothes. :-)
So for the past year I've been moving towards looser pants / boyfriend jeans. However I do still participate in the skinny jeans look. Here are three looks taken over three consecutive days, I am around 5 lb heavier than normal due to the restaurant being closed. You can see those 5 lbs with the skinny jeans/high contrast outfit, but the looser pants totally hide my love of Lindor Truffles!
1/2 -- Lunch with my Mom's financial advisors. Bellatrix bird baseball jacket from Nordstrom, H&M viscose track pants.
3 -- The super tight pants (self-distressed 7FAM), with a Zara sweatshirt.
4 -- Skinny jeans 2 sizes up from above jeans, from Levi's. $6.99 at Urban Outfitters! Daftbird henley from Shopbop.
Thanks for looking and commenting and any ideas how to hide 5 lbs are welcome!
