Here is the newest collaboration from Aldo and Flare Magazines fashion director, Liz Cabral. After being announced over a month ago and finally in stores today. I dreamed about them, okay maybe not dreamed, but I sure thought about them a lot. Unfortunately I was studying today (darn exam week) so a lovely friend of mine picked them up for me. The bright pop of orange is super bright and florescent hued. Here are a few pictures below. I'm not a 100% sure about them just yet because I don't think they look that good on my feet and the rounded leather straps look a bit awkward and heavy. The problem is that I have wider feet so I don't think my feet look their best in these. Also, last Sunday the 17th was an amazing brunch done by some amazing and fashionable friends that included an exceptional speaker on top of the runway show. The speaker was Danielle Laporte and if you haven't heard of her you better head to her site now! Inspirational to say the least and made me think, really think, about my wardrobe, developing my style, and what items in it are dragging me down. You know those things that are too nice to let go or you talk yourself into thinking you will wear eventually, but never do! Or the downfall for many of us, the SALE. God, I have way to many pieces bought from sales, that have A: never been worn, or B: worn once. All this adds up and prevent myself from really being happy with my closet. So I'm starting to think more critically about each purchase and making sure I really love it before I look at the price (hardest thing to do! I'm a penny-pinching fashion fiend!) Oh well, while I'm thinking on these there are always other shoes out there.
Another shoe update though are these amazing shoes from Asos.com which were snagged last week. I loved them before I even knew the price. So for $49 they were a steal and I was watching them for a few months so uber excited that they are mine now.
