Neglected


For this outfit I hauled out a couple of items that have been long neglected in my wardrobe. I've had both the pants and the boots for ages, but for some reason they just don't get used that much. The boots are tough for me because they have a long pointy toe, something I'm not terribly comfortable with because I feel like it makes my size 9 feet look gargantuan. However, under pants they work really well because that same pointy toe elongates my legs, especially when the boots match the pants as well as they do here.

The top is another purchase from my Minnesota trip. My hotel was right down the street from Saks Off Fifth, where I spent a couple of hours one morning snapping up a few great deals. Between the discounted prices, an extra discount for being on the mailing list, and no sales tax on clothes, I cleaned up.

Cardigan: Max Studio
Top: Calvin Klein
Pants: Liquid
Boots: Jo Ghost (you can get a closer view of them here)
Bag: Boktier

I think those boots are gorgeous! You should bring them out more often. Sounds like you got some steals and deals on that trip. (Also omg no sales tax?)

Cute outfit. Your name come up yesterday during my meetup with Lynne. We agreed on what a snazzy dresser you are and I told her your personality is even more charming.

Elegant outfit, Audi - I like how the print of the top is saturated and high-contrast without being a harsh graphic, and the long lines of the cardigan and pants are lovely.

I don't let having size 10-11 feet prevent me from enjoying the heck out of super-long and pointy, after all these years, it's just another proportion to play with. Jo Ghost makes beautiful, beautiful footwear!
