I put this outfit together for Lisa's feature over at Respect the shoes.
I loved seeing everyone's outfit today, go check out what people feel fabulous in!
I'm wearing a favorite dress that was picked up at Macy's for a dream several years ago. It has a fifties feel to it, which I love as the fifties are one of my favorite style decades. I've worn it to several graduations, weddings, and the like. I'm also in one of my favorite places, a bookstore. I love books, probably too much. I'm sure the need to wear glasses came from my childhood candlelit reading habit.
I got this sweater at Anthropologie back in 2004. It's showing it's age, the black is slowly fading, buttons constantly need to be sown on. Despite this I still love it. The buttons are a true selling point for me, my little black and gold flowers. Wearing this sweater brings back thoughts of my grandmother, who purchased this sweater for me. My grandmother was one of the most important people in my life (second only to my mother) anything I have from her is treasured, and always will be.
These shoes are perhaps my oldest shoes, I'm not even sure where I got them. The heels are so worn the metal core shows through. I normally throw shoes away when they get to this point of extreme wear, however something about the white stitching and little bows makes me keep this particular pair of heels. In fact I'm thinking about getting them repaired, so they can be mine for years to come.
