So. You met these Maison Martin Margiela shoes in my recent post on shoe alterations. They are so fabulous and well-made and really are wearable works of art. But after sitting in my closet for several months unworn, being worn with this outfit, and turning out to be too darned high for my now-used-to-flats-and-low-heels feet, I have found them a new home. Tough to style + uncomfortable means they just aren’t for me. Not anymore. Still glad I went through the experience of having a pair of shoes dyed, though, since I learned a lot about leather processing and what’s truly possible. read more

Bag – Stick Dog Leather

I thrifted this jacket in Chicago around the holidays, and love it to bits. Most sweater jackets are either thick, structured cardigans or knit blazers.

Dressed for: Matching Accents

Already Pretty outfit featuring sweater dress, blue leggings, Antelope boots, labradorite necklace

Sweater dress, Anthropologie (no longer available) – more marled sweater dresses
Tank dress, Express (no longer available) – similar style
Leggings, don’t remember – similar (periwinkle color)
Boots, Antelope (no longer available) – more Antelope
Necklace, Megan Kathleenmore labradorite necklaces

I’ve paired this sweater dress with these boots before, mainly because they both contain dusty blue-gray shades, but also because they’ve got matching accents. Something about the blonde wood buttons on the dress and the blonde wood platform on the boots just helps these two pieces align. read more
