Que Sera

I have a difficult time purchasing practical items. If given a choice between buying a little black dress that will go with anything, or a blue tutu lined in sequins, I will buy candy (Junior Mints!).
For anyone who has seen my closet, this is very apparent - I own several pairs of sky high heels, and only one pair of flats. I own a tutu and two perttiskirts, and a sequin pencil skirt, but only recently do I own a pair of black slacks. I was 22 before I ever purchased black eye liner (my first was lime green at 14). Practicality just isn’t in my nature I suppose.

 So when it came to purchasing a LBD a few years ago, it should come as no surprise that I came home with anything but a “practical” one. Most women dread the threat of side cleavage -  whereas this dress embraces the issue with open arms (ooh bad pun!). 
Yesterday however, I purchased a new pair of shoes - it had been over three years since I had purchased a pair of walking (i.e flat) shoes. My dear friend Megan was with me, and she was there to make sure I walked out with a pair of "everyday"  shoes. This new pair of Coach shoes was the result. I love these! Yes they are practical - but they are also plaid and metallic (and on sale)...therefore they have enough foo-foo to make them a staple for me.

  1. Hahaha the exact same thing happens to me, and when I need basics I don't have them hahaha!
    xx s

  2. I like the way this dress hangs on you. I wonder, do you ever feel a bit exposed wearing it? Do you feel it would be limiting as to where it can be worn?

    Those shoes are amazing, I love them! Casual but stylish and pretty versatile I would imagine.

  3. :)Hi Barry!
    No, I don't feel too exposed wearing it. I actually wore this outfit to work. I did however throw a sweater over it when I went into the bank to make a deposit ;)

  4. Looks like a practical outfit for just kickin' it indeed!

  5. Very cool :)


  6. Girl, you are WERKING this dress though! You look absolutely perfect. Please tell me how to get my complexion as perfect as yours or I'll have to go cry in a corner.

    You stunning lady.
