This outfit was inspired by recent outfit pieces posted by two other bloggers.
Scarf: Alexander McQueen
Sweater: Club Monaco
Dress: Shabby Apple
Skirt: Banana Republic thrifted
Shoes: Cydwoq from Ped Shoes
First off, I got the idea to hitch up a little bit of the dress to add some interest to the outfit from Sheila. She used brooches to gather up her skirt. I used on of those clips with elastic between them (I don't know what they're called.
I kind of like how it turned out.
The second element is my Cydwoq shoes. Megan Mae has been wearing some Cydwoq flats which reminded me how much I like these shoes. They are almost architectural with their angles and strappy leather.
These aren't totally comfortable though because there's a zipper on the back of the shoes that cuts into the back of my achilles tendon so I keep it unzipped about a centimeter.
The heel of these shoes is a bit lower than the toe, kind of like Earth shoes "negative heel technology". These are prettier though.
I added some flair. These are my favourites. Who doesn't like guitar playing squirrels and embracing their peculiarity?
