the study of suede color-block peep-toe heels

24 May

Magenta, grey and black suede peep-toe D’orsay pump with metallic trim and platform heel, thrifted (seriously!)

Two things:(1)  it has been raining here for almost 3 weeks.  I live in the middle of the desert.  This is not normal!! (2) The upside is that everything is ridiculously green, so I’m trying not to complain too much about it.

I found this skirt on clearance at a department store (Z.C.M.I., which was purchased by Meier and Frank, which was bought-out by Macy’s) 8 years ago and have worn it almost every week ever since.  It still looks great!  I love the paneled seaming and the charcoaly gray color.  Here’s to buying great basics!  *clinks glass

A friend of mine gave me a Piperlime giftcard for my birthday a few months ago.  Usually, I am the type to immediately spend that kind of gift on shoes, but I decided to branch out a little and see what else I could add to my wardrobe.  This silver bauble collar-style neckalce caught my eye, and seemed to be something Kendi would love (when in doubt, repeat this mantra: What Would Kendi Wear?).  I have tried it a couple of different ways and am loving how it brings a bit of sparkle and interest to an ensemble.  Yay for trying new trends!

    Cute! I love how you assemble your looks.

    Could you come to my house in the morning and dress me? (Not physically, of course. That’d be awkward.)

      Absolutely! My fee is quite minimal, in fact. I only require a modest size bag of sour patch kids, because nothing gets me going in the morning like sweet-and-sour, sugared fruit snacks. :)

    Dear Heidiface. Please come dress me everyday. OR you know, come a few times a month and lay out my clothes in stacks for each day of the week. Should I get day of the week underwear? Would that make it easier? If you see some gaping hole in my wardrobe, please find and purchase said missing items and fill in where appropriate. K, thanks.

      Sure. Again, I accept payment in sour patch kids. :)

    IDEA – we should do a cocktail ring swap!!!! Since you and I share an affinity for large cocktail rings :)
