I rarely get a chance to post my nicest outfits of the week, since I don't use electricity on Sabbath. But I liked this outfit from Saturday so much that I recreated the looks for a little picture-taking. Hubs laughed.
-white button-down, Banana Republic
-creme polka dotted skirt, Zoe D.
-sandals of death (will explain), Lucky Brand
-cluster flower earrings, F21
-black straw cloche, Sherel's
Debutantes have derbys. Brits have weddings. And Orthodox Jews have synagogue on Saturday. What is the connection? Fancy hats! Though you see my everyday headgear nearly every day here, I haven't shown off some of my favorite weekend pieces. This hat is definitely up there.
Ah, the shoes. I bought these nearly a month ago and have worn them for a total of about 4 hours. Make that 4 painful, blistery hours. I've foot petal-d, I've moleskined, and I still had to run home and change out of them before lunch because the back zip was digging into my ankle so. Any suggestions on making these beauts wearable? I hate leaving things just for show in my closet, and need your help.
Once upon a time (aka last year), I'd have saved this skirt for Sabbath or other dressy occasions (not really sure why, but I used to wear a jean skirt pretty much every.single.day.) Since deciding to wear everything by mixing casual and fancy, my style has evolved significantly in a direction with which I'm quite happy.
Do you save your nice pieces, or are they everyday wear?
