easy colorblocking

The easiest way to jump on the ‘color blocking’ trend bandwagon is to buy a dress that’s pre-color blocked. haha! I think I’m so clever, don’t I? I really like this dress. It’s bright and very comfortable.

Well, I wasn’t really planning on buying anything, but I went into a JC Penney (or is it called JCP now?) store to return something I had bought online and… GASP….I found SO MANY CUTE THINGS. I literally had no bought anything at JCP since the late 90s. I ran into this dress on a clearance rack, and the rest was history.

Outfit details:
Dress: Allen B colorblock (turquoise, pink, orange) midi dress, JCP clearance $14 in store ($18 online)
Shoes: Nickel t-strap sandals, thrifted $4.59
Jewelry: Necklace, local store for $13.50 + bangles, thrifted $2-3 each + spiked bracelet, consignment store $5.99
Clutch: Talbots black patent clutch, thrifted $4
Belt: pink skinny belt from Charlotte Russe, old
Jacket: Vivienne Tam blazer, Ideeli clearance from a while ago, about $18

What do you think about the color blocking trend? Are you a fan?


PS. I really wanted to say something about the recent tragic events in Boston and Texas but I don’t really know what to say. When these types of events take place, it seems that words just fall flat. Humans are suffering all over the globe and it’s my sincere wish that one day, we won’t hurt each other any more. Peace, <3, and baby goldfish.


Fall Heels… Spectator Style

If you know me, you know I love Spectator Heels. They go by so many different names: Spectator, Brogue, Wingtip, Oxford, Menswear-inspired, Perforated, and so on. Whatever their name is, this style of shoe is absolutely my favorite. Spectator pumps are usually oozing a classic, vintage vintage vibe. Pair with any of your more modern wardrobe pieces for a well put-together ensemble. As the weather transitions from spring to fall, I’m having to move away from the wedges and sandals in my closet and toward the dark colored pumps and heels.

What do you think about this selection of Spectator Pumps?

wishlist: steve madden waaves wedge



I am seriously craving a new pair of wedges for the summer (to wear with my maxi dresses. hey, I’m 5’3.5″, so I need all the help I can get).

I really love the Steve Madden Waaves wedge = it’s not too high, it’s got cool color blocking, and not a bad price either!

What do you think of this wedge?
