Shoes Or Booties - 3 Tips To Choose The Right Footwear I stumbled across both of these pairs a couple of months ago when my sister was visiting and … [Read More...]
Do you ever try on more than one pair of shoes when figuring out what to wear?
I do this all the time. Often I can’t make up my mind.
Choosing The Right Shoe
That’s when I go for both.
If one of these booties wasn’t a good inch taller than the other I would have worn this…
I swear I didn’t think about it at all when I was trying out both of these booties.
It just turned out that they matched each side of the vintage Nik Nik shirt.
As soon as I saw it I loved it.
It would have been a blast to see what kind of reaction I’d get.
I own both the red and yellow versions of these bright yellow booties. I need to figure out how to wear one of each in an outfit.
It could be a challenge as tomato red and neon yellow don’t exactly go together. I’m up for a challenge though!
I think it could work with this vintage plaid coat.
That could work.
In the end I wore the yellow booties.
Another day I wore pink oxfords with the same outfit. When I go to see my chiropractor I try to wear “sensible shoes”.
No photos of the oxfords. Sorry!
I blame that on my useless PA. She doesn’t even know how to work a camera.
Just feeling the happy vintage vibes of this shirt.
Have you seen these designer shoes by Jacquemus that have been making the rounds on celebrities lately?
Apparently I just read that,
“The mismatched shoe trend has been alive and well ever since Céline sent red and white, mismatched booties down the runway at Paris Fashion Week spring/summer ’17.”
And here I thought I’d invented something again.
Whenever you think you have an original idea just open up the internet. It’s all been done before.
Would you ever go out wearing two different coloured shoes/boots?
To me the phrase “Figure Friendly” means that the dress does most of the work. It flatters my figure, it’s comfortable to wear and I don’t need to fuss with it.
Basically it’s a no brainer.
Figure friendly Karina dresses do all of that.
Honestly they are just about the easiest, fail proof, most comfortable dresses I own thanks to some clever designs and the stretchy toss-in-the-wash-without-a-care fabric.
They are one of my favourites for travelling because they can be crammed into your carry on bag and still come out fresh.
This Penelope Emerald Diamonds Karina dress was gifted to me. Yes…this is a sponsored post but all of my opinions are my own. I’m not a good liar.
Ask my Mom.
Or don’t. Ha ha!
I love to support companies that continue to manufacture within North America.
The weather has cooled down substantially in the last few days so I decided to layer this up a bit for fall.
I’m wearing a cami under the dress as I did find it to be a bit low cut. I added a recent thrift find, an Anthropologie sweater. Check out the lining on this cardigan!
It’s so pretty I wish it were reversible. I love pieces which have hidden details like that. It’s like you’re carrying around a wonderful secret.
I’m always excited when I find Anthropologie pieces while thrifting. I thrifted this Anthro coat two days ago.
I drooled over it in their catalogue last year.
It looks like it has never been worn. The thrifting Gods were good that day my friends.
These vintage lace up boots were found the first time I went to the Toronto Vintage Clothing show and are still one of my favourites. I bought them at Wild Thing Vintage from the lovely Erica.
The dress is a bit shorter than I’m used to now.
It’s difficult to imagine since only two years ago I was wearing skirts that hit me around mid thigh and I didn’t think twice about it. Now I’m accustomed to having my skirts hit at or just below my knee. Funny how our perception of ourselves changes.
I don’t mind wearing shorter dresses with tights and now with the weather cool down that is what I’ll be wearing with this outfit.
The latest Karina dress I’m loving is the Margaret Harvest Floral…kind of my ideal dress for fall.
I think they have this in a 3/4 sleeve version too!
Get in my closet!
This paired with some vintage brown lace up boots, my floppy hat and my long denim trench…yep that is something I could go for.
I don’t own the dress but I have already styled it in my mind. Am I the only crazy person that does that?
Here are some other Karina dresses I’ve styled up Carolyn Midnight Garden, Ruby in Black & Peach Vintage Floral, Penelope Grey Lace styled four ways , Blue Polkadot Karina Dress, Chevron Striped Karina Dress
