I’m sure you are wondering why I’m a sweetheart right? Today a friend at church told me I looked like someone’s Valentine. I initially was trying to come up with a post title that included her thought & failed.
A brief 60 seconds later conversation candies popped into my head. And I thought I was going to find a title on one of those cute little candies (You don’t get the connection either, right?). Nope I didn’t come up with a title. Then I thought I’d name this after some berry cocktail but I don’t drink…bawahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!
It doesn’t matter because this color combo wasn’t my idea. I came across In Her Stilettos: neon pink. If you follow her blog or Twitter please tell her thank you. I sent this look around the world. I was awe struck by her burgundy pumps. I had my shoe fairy RushOurFashion searching high and low for me a pair. She found me these Aldo Botkins pumps. I ordered them. The next day they sent a cancellation email.
A few days ago I took my first trip to Zara and found these.
I immediately begin to plan how I'd wear them with this dress.
I love this dress but it’s too big. I thought about taking it to a seamstress but decided against it after seeing Diya’s post. Besides, I figured the work would cost more than what I paid for the dress at a Goodwill in Georgia last December. I even thought about just cutting it and keeping the skirt portion which I still might do. I wanted to wear it to church. Here's what I came up with........
I felt so pretty. My only complaint was the shirt constantly untucking itself. I didn’t post what may have been better shots showing off the look because my shirt was rolled up in the front. I have to admit I’m proud of myself for doing something really different & not playing it safe. I’m usually go with a cardigan. Not today.
What do you think? Divamom win? Or does this look require a do-over?
A very special thanks to my Little BIG man, KT who takes my photos even though he hates to. Yes, I force him lovingly. Why waste good talent? A professional photographer says he has a good eye and I should keep encouraging him. Someday it may become a side gig or he may become the next Gordon Parks. Words of advice: Don't limit your kids to one thing.
