Teal Time!

In the September issue of Real Simple, they say the color of the season (fall, that is) is teal. I’m happy because I LOVE teal! I was so inspired by the article that I made a display at the store based on it:

The Real Simple style experts suggested three color pairings. From left to right, the first two outfits are GREY + TEAL, the second two are SAFFRON + TEAL, and the last two are VIOLET + TEAL. I love all of the combinations and can’t decide which is my favorite. They are all so pretty! Here’s my take on teal:

top: August silk via Your Stuff, stolen from mom; skirt: Nine West via NARTS consignment tour in Dallas, Texas; belt: Your Stuff; Shoes: Nine West (purchased new many years ago); earrings: purchased in Santorini, Greece

Will you incorporate more teal into your wardrobe this fall? Which color pairing will you try first – teal + grey, saffron, or violet?

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

shoes I bought

b.o.c.: Your Stuff, Nine West: Uptown Cheapskate, Clarks: Your Stuff, Cole Haan: Your Stuff

In two weeks I’ve bought nearly $600 worth in shoes and I’m super excited! Of course, If I had actually spent $600, I’d have a serious, serious case of buyer’s remorse. How much DID all of these shoes cost? About $135. THAT’S why I love consignment stores. I got 2 pairs of leather boots in practically new condition (the soles aren’t even worn), 1 pair of forest-green-ish-black patent leather mary jane heels, and 1 pair of pewter peep-toe wedges.

Have you ever gotten a great deal on a pair of shoes? Leave a comment to share your experience!
