Super cute, right? In case the pictures aren't clear enough, they are a black patent peep toe with a matte leather and brass buckle detail at the toe and a stacked heel. The official label is "Tribeca: A Kenneth Cole Production." I'm in love. So in love that I wore them to work today. If you've been reading my blog (or if you live in the area), you know that it has been unseasonably warm over the last few days. Today was no exception, although it was a lot more cloudy than it has been and they are predicting rain for tonight. So, to be prepared, I wore a rain coat:
It's a vintage 60's mod-style jacket that I got at a second-hand store in New Hampshire several years ago. I believe I paid $35 for it. I remember talking the saleslady down from $45- yay for haggling! You can see my dress peeking out from the hem of the jacket- I just adore this dress. It really sums up my style in so many ways:
It's comfortable, flattering, bright pink floral fabric- I just love it in every way. It shows just enough leg without being too risque, but I do have to add the cami to keep the top half from looking completely obscene. I just happened to have the bright pink cami before I bought the dress, so I think that worked out perfectly. The dress is a couple of years old- I got it last summer (2008) and I have gotten a LOT of wear out of it. You may have even noticed that it's what I'm wearing in my blogger profile picture. The accessories today include my favorite turquoise cocktail ring, chandelier earrings from H&M and the necklace I won last week from Ruth Parker Jewelry. I didn't plan on wearing the necklace, but after I got dressed I checked my mail and sure enough there was a package with this inside:
And here it is on me with my pretty-in-pink outfit:
I hate how my face always photographs so shiny-looking. I swear I am the LEAST photogenic person I know. It doesn't matter where or when or how, but if someone takes a fairly close-up shot of me, my skin/face looks TERRIBLE!!! It's a bummer, but what can you do? Some people just photograph better than others.
And now for the exciting news for YOU. I have decided to pay it forward with my Ruth Parker necklace win. I think it's exciting to win contests and prizes, but isn't it just as fun to give away a prize to someone else? I think so! So here's how the giveaway will work. Leave a comment on this post (up to three comments per person) and at the end of the week, I will randomly select a winner who will receive the fabulous necklace. To learn more about it (and see a better picture of it), go here (to Lauren's blog) or here (to Lauren's Etsy shop). Thanks in advance for participating!
