What's not to love about shiny red boots? I found these on Amazon at a deeply discounted price, and immediately knew I needed to add them to my shoe empire. Being rain boots, they're perfect for our current drizzly weather, but I can fully imagine myself wearing them on dry days as well. Incidentally, wonderful deals still abound on Amazon -- I also picked up a fantastic pair of Fly London boots which I'll show you later in the week. Amazon carries pretty much all the same styles as Endless, but for some reason the prices are much lower right now, so go forth and be shodden!
This is one of the ways I 'cheat' when I wear button-down shirts: since I hate how they feel tucked in, I often layer something else over the top to acheive a structured, fitted look while leaving my shirttails comfortably flapping. Fitted waistcoats like this one are great for adding waist definition without having anything cinching around your midsection.
The skirt came from the Goodwill $2 sale that Mark and I went to a couple weekends ago. It's a little longer than my usual preference, but since it's a full circle skirt I actually quite like the length and was fully prepared to leave it as is until I noticed a hole near the hem. This will necessitate taking maybe an inch and a half off the length, but it will still be below-the-knee. I'd say this skirt is from the 50's; considering how old it is it's in darn good shape despite the hole, and is made of a heavy wool. Not a bad acquisition for 2 bucks!
