OOTD 11/11/2011

Happy Friday!  and I'm wearing my happy shoes for the very first time!  I can't say enough about these shoes, (I blogged about them here) not only is the color to die for but also they're like wearing bedroom slippers.  (and I can't say that about many of my shoes)

I was really pleased with the outcome of this outfit.  You know sometimes you have an idea that seems grand, but it doesn't come together irl like you'd envisioned.  Not so, this time.
First of all, the shoes are a perfect match to the cerise factory stripe tank.
Second, I love the color combo of the orangey-red and camel.
Third, I love the mixing of patterns and textures. (stripes, leopard and chunky cable)

  1. I love when things come together IRL maybe even better than imagined. Love; gonna copy!

  2. Ooh, love this all together!! Gorgeous. Jealous of those pretty shoes! I love when it comes together IRL -- I had one of those today actually. :)

  3. TR...isn't that they best! Makes a girl happy! and copy away! :o)

    M...Thanks, lady! You sooo need these shoes...they are absolutely FABULOUS in every way!

  4. Oh how cute! I love this one :-) Those sure are some great shoes. I might need these lol. And I really like your layering of the tank under the cable sweater. Very cute! I definitely know the feeling of having that grand idea and having it not work out. Or even sometimes I feel like you come out with something that looks great on polyvore, and then it doesn't actually look as good IRL.

  5. Ohh, I love this shoe Andrea! And the color is so attractive! I loved everything together!
    You arranged everything very well! XOXO

  6. Jen...these shoes are AWESOME! Yep, you need these too! :o) I agree it can work both ways...some outfits are better irl and for some reason don't translate well in pv. Then there are some that look good but when you put it all way!

    Andrea...thank you sweet lady! I love it when everything goes as planned! :o)

  7. Love the outfit! And totally envious that you can wear those shoes! The area above the big toe joint was so tight on top of my foot I could not wear these! I sadly had to return them. How do you like the honeycomb sweater? Mine came this week and I tried it on, and the short length (necessary to wear a longer cami/tee underneath) and the itch factor put it in my return pile. Wondering what you thought after wearing it? Thx.!

  8. Oh, I'm heartbroken for you! I was actually surprised at how comfy these shoes were for often not the case with J Crew shoes. I like the you said, I kinda of like the shorter length for layering tees and camis underneath. and I didn't find it to be itchy. I also sized down for a more fitted look...I thought my normal size was a bit boxy. My only issue was the shedding. The first time I wore it with black jeans and my black wool bella...oh my!! When I took bella off, she was covered in camel colored fuzz inside and all day long I was lent rolling my black jeans. But yesterday with regular jeans and the little tank, I didn't notice any shedding. I'm actually thinking about getting the red as well. :o)
