Wedges: Marni; Jewelry: ASOS; Belt + Dress: Forever 21; Bag: Coach; Car/Spring coat: Missoni


AHHHH! I just recieved another pair of sweet shoes that I scored off of Lulu's fabulous Shoes and your Mom site. These Marni's are several seasons old but I don't care - they are striking and adorable. The only problem is that they aren't exactly the easiest to walk in: the footbed is wood, they are slingbacks and it appears half the shoe is missing. I was teetering helplessly around work yesterday lest I take a wrong step (I walk heel first - kinda hard when you're missing part of the heel').

But my fear of hard-to-wear shoes (and my problem feet/legs) be damned! These are just too much fun and actually make my stumps look leggy(ish)!

Also, really loving the sterling silver starfish earrings and my starfish embellished cocktail ring, paired with the turquoise they give off a breezy, marine feeling - and it's making me think I might have to wear as much silver as I do gold in the summer.

Speaking of fabulous websites (I hope to sell more of my clothes on Lulu's site - just sold my too tiny Patrizia Pepe wedges and am looking to add my Chloe sweater and Abaete dress), I was wondering if YOU had any favourites?

Everyday at work I check out the same sites: The Sartorialist, Garance Dore, Shoewawa, Catwalk Queen, Fabsugar, WhoWhatWear Daily, Go Fug Yourself (along with all your blogs of course) but I want some more fab fashion/style sites to peruse...any suggestions?

PS - though I am a week into my online shopping ban, I've already received an email from Bluefly that says "we miss you"....oh dear.

You look great! Those shoes and that jacket are such statement pieces!
P.S. I did have classes--just other area schools were closed. Sad for me.

omg, i want to try on those shoes! ...um, and then probably give them back, as i'd fall over and i don't need any more sprained ankles :-)

Gorgeous, gorgeous outfit, as usual. Even if the shoes were less than walkable, they look awesome. You always look so beautiful and put together. =)

Okay. I'm officially giving myself up. I'm one of those people you keep talking about... the ones that are out there, reading your blog, not commenting (until now, that is...)... remember?...

Well, I just had to say something about this outfit...

IT ROCKS!!! Not a lot of people can pull off white. Just brilliant, the way you matched the jewelry, jacket and purse with it... adding all that colour... hats off!

Elizabeth Victoria C said...

I absolutely love those shoes!! Totally worth the difficulty walking I'm sure! You're super beautiful xx

Erica said...

Cheri said...

You are looking hot in that outfit but the second I saw those shoes I thought "how the eff does she walk in those things" and then you answered me...not that easily. Be careful - they look dangerous. :-)

hey quick question for ya - i LOVE that ring and was thinking of ordering it from ASOS but I don't know what the deal is with s-m-l sizing in rings..i'm usually a size 7...what would that be?

cheers!

Wanderlusting said...

Roselle - I got size M, and I'm normally a size 6. It's a little loose on my ring finger, I think it would fit a 7 ring finger fine though :)

MizzJ said...

Nice shoes, they're so prim looking :) They do look horrible to walk in though - I can't believe you managed it! Hmm I'm really loving Nini Style atm, she has some killer designer duds that make me just feel dowdy.

Karinaxoxo said...

OK this is probably one of my fav outfits that I've seen you in so far! AMAZING!!!

Vegas Princess said...

This has to be one of my more favorite outfits on you. Cool and collected and stylish. Fabulous!
