Make It Stop

jeffrey-campbell-mel_solestruckMINE in a week!!  Slowly turning into a shoe ‘hoar’ (hi mom!).  Must stop it now.  The Jeffrey Campbell Mel is now available at SolestruckUPDATE:  I ordered these 20 min. ago, and must have gotten one of the last 8.5 pairs.  These do come in half sizes, even though there aren’t any more on Solestruck. A quick search will show you they’re selling them at a other places for a little less spenny.

Cheaper versions are still available at Aldo with the Molavi and Smeal.

Ankle Cover-Ups

The Dolce Vita Phoenix Sandals are now in my possession, and I can’t wait to wear them!  They’re comfy and fit true to size.  Recently I got the Luichiny Ankle Cuff Sandal to add some metallic shine to my soles.  Truth be told, I typically throw on jeans with tanks in the summer (love the AC, but get cold fast), but with these new sandals, I’ll have an excuse to wear some cut-offs.  Plus, I plan to revive a few old pairs of jeans by dolphin-cutting and fraying them.  Thanks to Bleach Black, I am now versed in the fine art of fraying/razoring those hanging threads vs. snipping them, which I used to do.  Can it be June yet?!

Ruffle This

I’m tiered ruffled-crazy right now, which explains why I got this Kimchi Blue Rufflesnake Bandeau at Urban Outfitters today.  I’d never wear this alone because it’s a bra, but thought it could be a bonus throw-on if I needed to spice up a plain tank or one of my strappy knit dresses.

It’s not my norm style to throw on a bra over a tank, but the tiered ruffles had me at hello and drowned away any prelim hesitancy.  However, I’m putting this to the Public Style Experiment.  More to follow on this…

Give It To Me

I was bummed when I thought I missed out on these, but today, my heart practically jumped out of my chest when I saw the Jeffrey Campbell Biz Belted Bootie is back in stock with limited quantities! I thought I was hallucinating for a hot sec, but I wasn’t dreaming. They only have them in size 8 and 9, and I’m praying that the 9 fits (with socks, I order a size up) because I normally wear 8.5. I know, for a petite person, I have big feet. Holy hotness, this made my day! UPDATE: Got these in the morning and just checked back probably 10 hours later, and there are no more size 9’s. Talk about being online at the right place and time!

Flower Power

Floral prints never go out of style. See my first grade photo above. When I want to be girly, I go with a floral print dress but like to throw on an oversized blazer or faux leather jacket with some ankle booties to toughen up the look. Every so often I have an urge to check out the junior clothing Web sites because I can still fit into those clothes and sometimes they have really cute stuff for dirt cheap. Recently, I bought this floral dress from Charlotte Russe because a. it has a sweetheart neckline (love) and b. it has a bubble hem (double love). It’s totally 80’s with the oversized bow in the front and double skirt, but that’s why I love it. And at $33, I couldn’t resist.
