Daily Outfit: 2/11/10

Blue cardi, thrifted at ARC Value Village
Floral button-down, via eBay
White skirt, Banana Republic
Red tights, Express
Breathtakingly awesome blue shoes, courtesy Heavy Machine
Bracelets, gift from my mom
Hoop earrings, don’t rememeber



I love this crazy floral shirt with its crazy ruffled cuffs. I have so few patterned items in my wardrobe, but when I go for pattern, I go all out.


I am going to resist telling you anything about these Breathtakingly Awesome Shoes for the time being because Heavy Machine has promised me that they’ll have an e-commerce site up and running soon. And you don’t REALLY want me to review them until you can buy a pair yourself, am I right? (Muah hahahahaaaaaaa.)

    Hi, Sal. I found your blog via Orchids in Buttonholes. I've been reading your other posts and I love that you are so comfortable in your own (already pretty) skin and seem sincere in reaching out to others to be the same. I've had a lot of body-image problems growing up and taking pics of myself for my blog is one way for me to confront those problems. When I started reading blogs a few years ago, I frequented the popular ones where the girls are tall and thin and could pose like a pretzel but still look great. It made me feel a bit more insecure. But now that I've discovered you and other women happy to just be themselves, it's very inspiring. I'll be following you from now on. Keep up the great work!

    P.S. I love the blue shoes with the red tights. It's so cheerful!

  • orchidsinbuttonholes

    The shoes! Oh my goodness the shoes… Can't wait to hear more about them.

    Though I loved the outfit before I got to that detail shot – that shirt is fantastic, and I love how you've played with color. So sunny and fresh you made me forget for a moment it's winter (and that's exactly what I need today, so you've inspired my outfit choice, too).

    Have a great Friday!

  • Kelly

    Those shoes are badass! And I *really* like this whole color combo.

  • futurelint

    LOVE this color combo and those shoes are awesome!

  • Candice Virginia

    What a beautiful, cheerful outfit! The bright, cherry red is such a great mood-booster. And to echo other commenters, your shoes are incredible!
