Hammer Time

Me with my Sole Society HeelsRemember those gorgeous shoes Sole Society sent me to style?  Here’s the complete look!  Since the Kadene shoe has such a great mix of tough and feminine, I decided to do the same with my overall look.

I wore a pair of leopard print slouchy pants (that I like to lovingly call my “hammer pants”) and topped it off with a simple silk blouse.  To toughen up the look, I layered on a few gold chain necklaces from H&M.  Finally, I added a pop of color with my red patent leather Kate Spade dot bag and a red lip.  For those of you looking for a great red lip that actually lasts, try the YSL Glossy Stain (I’m wearing number 9).  It’s really the best ever!

These shoes are sure to be a staple in my wardrobe.  They’ll look great with jeans, skirts, dresses… you name it!

These Booties Were Made for Talkin’

Booties

Don’t you love that moment when you’re shopping and suddenly it’s like the clouds part, the sun shines down, and angels start singing luring you to that special find… and it’s on SALE?!  That’s how I felt when I found these leopard print calf hair booties at the latest Nordstrom sale.  It’s like they were made with me in mind!  These babies are statement shoes though so when I was planning the rest of my outfit, I kept it pretty simple in order to let them do the talking.  The leatherette jeans give a bit of a tough girl vibe but I tone it down from being too “motorcycle chick” by adding a white silk blouse.  Keep accessories simple too… the leopard print is loud enough!
