Oh I’m Just Peachy

Yes, this is one of those rare times when I’m actually facing the camera full-on.  Truth be told, I have no idea what I’m doing when posing which is why I look either down or to the side and smile.  🙂  Then I cross my fingers that I got at least one or two decent shots that haven’t turned out too cheesy.

Lately I’ve been on a layering kick.  Sweetheart necklines have always been near and dear to my heart and I’ll throw on any tube top with said neckline over a dress.  It’s a simple way to spruce up a dress.  I’m wearing another super old Rampage top over a body con dress from Urban Outfitters, which has a slight puffiness in the shoulders.

So I’ve temporarily banned myself from shopping and I’m actually proud to say that I will get through this month without buying a single item.  Holy crap, I do have more self restraint than I thought.  The exception to the rule was going to be the recently re-released Sam Edelman Zoe, a.k.a. the coveted Balenciaga knock-off boots, but for $345 I will need to pass.  I’m extremely disappointed that these are retailing for way higher than the original price, but I’m sure they will still sell out fast.  You can buy them online at Jildor now and they’ll be in stores at a number of retailers and other Web sites, including Amazon and Zappos at the beginning of August.

    Hey girl! Love layering. It’s a great way to maximize the looks of your wardrobe and keep pieces going season after season.

    I heard about these infamous Sam Edelman boots. Wow. $345 is pricey for high street, don’t you think???

    Third, love that headband on you.

      Hey D! Yes, they’re very pricey, but smart, I suppose, for hiking up the price because of the high demand. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get them when they were around $100 (I think). Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

  23. July 29, 2009 at 5:15 am

    I really like the “Working Girl-esque/Corporate Mistress” vibrancy of the BODY con skirt combined with such an “oversized” belt, AND the way you decline it with your usual KILLing Freshness: Ooooooooh YES, Stunning Becs, Radiant “BOMBnextDor from LAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa” !!!!!!!!!!(Pffffffff now I need to catch my breathe)
    Hope you’re Well Dear.

    à Bientôt, Antoine

      xo, Becs

  31. July 29, 2009 at 11:03 am

    Oh I feel the same way about posing- but you always look gorgeous and very natural 😉

    I love the idea of just throwing a tube top over a body con dress- that’s genius!

  32. July 29, 2009 at 11:14 am

    You looks great!!
    love the colour combination nude + black! and the top and the shoes are amazing!
    You’re stunning 😉

  39. July 29, 2009 at 4:02 pm

    Hi Becs, u look gorgeous with the headband n love added the corset look!
    I have been contemplating whether to get those SE knockoffs too, as i think they are a bit overpriced! 😦

  40. July 29, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    Hellooooo beautiful!

    I’m so ready to raid your closet and run away with your fabulousness, but you look so good in everything I won’t (;

    And that smile of yours is radiant! And I want to cut my bangs like yours again!

    La C.

  41. July 29, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    Good grief girl you are gorgeous! I really love the sparkly headband and layered tube top; it looks fantastic. (and I love the sunset in the background).

  42. July 30, 2009 at 2:11 am

    HEY! great blog, is so original and cool, check out ours whenever U want, we invite you to follow it,

  43. July 30, 2009 at 11:13 am

    You look amazing, darling! I totally love the idea of the tube top over a dress, so thank you for inspiration!:)

    P.S. Did you get the dress? 🙂

  44. July 30, 2009 at 1:20 pm

    What an inspirational combination Becs! At first I was confused whether you are wearing a top and a skirt and a tube top over it , but then I got it after reading the post …lol
    I’m definitely going to try that soon :0) hehe


  45. July 30, 2009 at 6:26 pm

    That headband is awesome. I hate taking pictures of myself, I have no idea how you post self portraits all the time. Far braver than I.

  46. July 30, 2009 at 6:53 pm

    I said to myself, before even logging into my email, let’s stop by Becs page to say how I caught a small peep of Desperate Housewives of ATL- lol, always thinking of you when I watch Bravo now. NeNe and the other one not getting along, and a basketball player-husband having to retire from injury, that’s about all I saw…

    Great shoes, dear, loving the headband and peach touch too. – My new favorite colour!!!


  47. July 30, 2009 at 9:32 pm

    OT: but so funny you commented on my hair on my blog…I don’t know WHAT to do with it! Let me know if you have any ideas!

  48. July 30, 2009 at 11:10 pm

    i’ve never tried a sweetheart neckline over something, though i’ve always wanted to.. i just forget. haha.

    goodness i always love your styling, this outfit looks too good, and too cute on you


  49. July 31, 2009 at 2:51 am

    I’m a huge fan of layering, so I’m loving this outfit! Great idea just throwing the soft-toned Rampage top over the all-black outfit! And good going, not buying stuff this month! I’m going on a shopping ban starting now. It’s time to actually start creating looks using what I have. Have a great weekend!

  50. July 31, 2009 at 2:57 am

    wow you look awesome that outfit is fantastic and i love those shoes xoxox

  51. July 31, 2009 at 5:39 am
