After peeking through my favorite blogs today, I feel a bit under-dressed ! I am liking the monochrome looks with shoes as the accessories, so when I found these lavender suede sandals for a song at Penny's, I snagged em' up, ( under 4 dollars!) . The thrift of the month was this Perry Ellis American satchel for six dollars yesterday. My knees literally wobbled as I picked it off the little purse tree. It could be because I was wearing platforms too :) I also have on a purple tank that showed through the sweater, but ya can't really see it here. Mixing textures made the outfit more fun as well. I still can't get over the perfect leather satchel. The thrifty Gods were definitely smiling down on me ! This outfit made me feel kinda All-American and demurely sleek, with a touch of trendy. I even wore my Aviator's and my hair IN the scarf like the New York street stylers ;) Watch out SJP !
I actually wore these home from my trip last week, which by the way I was pulled over for speeding !!! I nearly crapped myself, and handed him my credit card when he asked for my license. I offered him some fresh green beens and then proceeded to beg for mercy. He finally laughed and wrote me a warning ! Whew ! If only he knew I was writing a poem, taking photos of my shoes, eating donuts and applying make-up just moments before :)
And I must apologize in advance for all the crazy widget graphics.
I am loving playing with this site "Lunapics". You can do all kinds of funny stuff with your images for free, and It is so much fun and did I mention Free ? ;)
