What I Am Wearing

For those that have been big time followers of my blog, you will know that I used to do a post called, “My Shoes,” of which I wanted to give you all a chance to see the shoes that I, the self-proclaimed ‘Shoe Snob’, own and allow you all to critique me. But no one did so and I could not be bothered to constantly have to pick a different shoe to wear just to take a picture of. Plus, maybe you all don’t care about my 100+ shoes. Therefore, I have decided to change it up a bit. I figured that since I put of loads of colorful and quirky shoes up on my blog, and it may not be the easiest thing to justify not only owning but buying these types of shoes, that I would show all of you my outfits 2-3 times a week so see how I do it. Therefore, for those of you who wish to branch out of the realm of wearing just black shoes, I can hopefully provide you with a visual stepping-stone to do so. I hope that you all enjoy my outfits. Please feel free to comment, even if negative.

  • I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks now (my husband pointed it out to me), and I have to say that your recent green shoes filled me with envy. It’s my favorite color, and I’d love to have a pair like that. They turned out beautifully.

    Like your outfit very much! Especially the bow tie with the double-breasted blazer. It pops.

    Oh to have as many beautiful shoes as you: I’m going to have to reconfigure my tiny closet. Question: how to do store them all?

  • I like how your bowtie coordinates with your shoes!

  • Daniel – Tell your husband thanks for the reference! You never know, you could have a pair of green shoes sooner than you know as I am definitely going to be introducing one for my first collection which will be out soon. Glad that you enjoyed the outfit, thats nice to hear… As far as storing shoes, well, they are EVERYWHERE, especially now that i live in England where the closet space is next to nothing. Scattered is how I store them….

    Benjy – Thanks Benjy!! I usally try and coordinate the tie to something, whether its the socks, laces, or even shoes.
