Got a bit of a 'Tobias Funke' vibe going on with these jorts, lol.

Clearly loving these Chloé sandals right now.

easy breezy

Mes Demoiselles top (Joan Shepp/Philly)
Theory cotton shorts
Chloe sandals (Chloe outlet @ Woodbury Commons/NY)

A couple of sale purchases. The sandals were ridiculously cheap. They were the last pair and the display shoe was noticeably darker than the other shoe so I was given an additional discount. I placed the lighter shoe on my windowsill and let it darken under the sun for a few days until they were the same color! Easy. 

The top was also on sale. I don't really mind that it looks like some strange bubble minidress from behind. I've worn it with white jeans and gold sandals out to dinner so it's definitely one of those easy day-to-night type pieces.

I'm still on the hunt for a pair of black sandals since my old Marc Jacobs ones completely fell apart - the heel just broke off! (Drunk dancing mishap - but even in my altered state I had just enough of my wits about me to hack off the other heel and wore them as flats the rest of the evening.) I'm in no rush, though, I can wait and wait and wait until the perfect pair comes along for the perfect price ;-)

Anyone else have sale purchases to brag about?

high time

Yves Saint Laurent ruffled cotton top
JBrand high-waist waxed jeans
Giuseppe Zanotti jewelled sandals

I'm no stranger to high-waist bottoms. I've worn wide-leg ones, shorts, and I often hitch my skirts up when I'm too lazy to hem them. High-waist + skinny, however, is a new silhouette for me. The appeal of high-waist pants is that they make your legs look longer, which is true, but I am also more conscious of my hips and I'm always afraid my butt looks long when I wear these. They are a great new addition to my closet though, they were on sale and I realized I actually own a lot of shorter and cropped tops. It's great not having to pull up my pants every five seconds and I love that I don't have to wear a belt! That's one of my peeves with jeans - when they stretch out I have to wear belts and sometimes outfits just look better without.
