New Romantic looking for the TV sound (switch it off)

My coworker looked at me in this outfit today and said "You aren't as coordinated as you usually are". I was CRUSHED. I CRIED. (ok, not really)

I think I'm totally coordinated and even if I'm not, I'm wearing the prettiest shoes in the entire world.

Blouse: Vero Moda
Skirt: Chalet (last worn here)
Shoes: Nine West (from Coal Miner's Daughter in Toronto)

I saw a photo of these shoes on a blog a few months ago and I pined them into my Pinterest shoe board. Alas, these shoes are from a few seasons ago and not easy to find

A friend of mine let me know that there was a pair of them in a clothing store in Toronto. I talked to the store and they were my size so I bought them and my friend mailed them to me. They arrived yesterday and they are as gorgeous as I envisioned.

Such pretty Maryjane straps. Spectator like toes and pretty floral cutouts. I'm becoming more girly in my 40s than I have been in earlier life and I think I like it.

They are so pretty. So, so pretty. And not entirely uncomfortable.

It's good to have friends in other cities who are fans of shoes. Did I say friends? I meant enablers.

Happy Friday!


  1. Woo! I love when things work out like that. Friends in far reaching places is always a good thing to have. (Although co-workers - ahem.)

    The shoes are lovely, sweet, but the heels makes them fabulous. I always had good luck with Nine West shoes, some of the most comfy stilettos I ever owned.

  2. All of your shoes are the prettiest shoes in the world.

    Your ardent enabler :)

  3. Friends never let friends not buy the shoes they lust for. These are truly pretty shoes in the best sense. Um, I think your coworker's remark was odd - I love this look, perfect for the shoes.

  4. Beautiful range of warm and cool, and the blouse is perfect with those pretty, pretty, pretty shoes!

    Enabler-friends indeed!

  5. Congrats on your new pair of heels, sooooo cuuute!! :) Enabler friends in ( for me -another counrty) are the best!! :)

  6. Those are super cute shoes! The outfit doesn't feel girly- romantic and soft but not girly and then bam- the great shoes that are romantic and super femme. Great touch.
