case-in-point: these pink studded ballet flats by BE & D. ahhhhh.
springtime! they are my official spring shoes. and they represent my favorite fashion ideal: sweet & tough at the same time. ordered them from shopbop.com, of course!
trompe l'oeil sweatshirt w/ gemstones by Rozae Nichols, denim peplum skirt by Nanette Lepore, neon yellow leopard tank is Rogan for Target. enamel bangles by volcom, leopard cuff by marc jacobs.
buying new shoes is justified when you are wearing clothes from 3 & 4 years ago. glad i bought pieces that still rock!

i keep accessories to a minimum when wearing it, to let it stand on its own. i chose this marble heart necklace by I-can't-remember-who. what a shame, cuz it's so cool.
gold wedges by faryl robin, who has some great shoes this season. i will be posting more of them this week, including some sweet snake platforms!
cuff by jenn fenton, made from a vintage shoe clip soldered to a thrift store cuff i found for $2. we had a fun time with the soldering iron, for sure! go, Jenn!

but i did choose a dress i haven't worn yet. i like this dress, it's Rozae Nichols, and since she doesn't design that line anymore, i dig her old things. but i'm not that attached. i would sell it. in fact, i did try to sell it to my friend Maria.
i am doing a series this week on things i wouldn't sell, no matter WHAT. there are a few. i sell a lot; on ebay, to friends, & to make room for new clothes. BUT there are some things that are keepers. such as Maurice, Gary Graham anything, etc.
and such as....5 bills! my adored Loeffler Randall shoes. LR shoes are still great, but that season was a stand out. i bought 3 pairs! i think it was 4 or 5 years ago.
also took some close-ups of them to showcase what i love but others might not understand: LOVINGLY WORN. the chips and gashes in the wood on the heels is part of the appeal! it shows they were actually worn, not just standing around cocktail parties, but traipsing through the trials of life, getting some wear & tear, just like me. this is not a defect. in fact i wouldn't trade these for a spanking brand new pair; just as i would never trade my vintage Louis Vuitton speedy bag for a new one. the dark brown worn leather handles are what signify luxury to me. using it til it falls apart. that's why we pay big money for good things. they last. and part of their lasting is the beautiful patina they develop with age.
