I was told by at least three people at work today that I looked Christmassy. Yes, I get it. I'm wearing red and green together.
This is my second wearing of the Emerald Green Dress of Checkerboard Awesomeness, last seen here with a similar colour palette (red shoes, black obi) for the Billy Bragg concert earlier this month.
My red cardigan was worn twice in the October 2012 capsule (recap here).
here with hot pink tights. As I mentioned before, I'm in the big 10K race this Sunday and I need to baby my feet this week. All these heels are not good for race-walking.
As promised when I bought this dress, here's a close-up (albeit blurry) of the pattern.
Dress (handmade, vintage 70s, thrifted), cardigan (no label, consignment), shoes (Tsubo), leather obi (consignment), earrings (The Cobbler), bracelet (Le Chateau).
Okay, you all know I'm a just a *bit* of a Fluevog junkie, right? Just a little. Well, on the Fluevog website is this thing called the FlueMarket* where you can buy, sell or swap used Fluevogs. It's a great way to find discontinued styles or find a good deal on a gently-worn pair. I like to sort by my size and then browse and see what's available. Some of them are really pricey, but every so often, you might find a deal.
*linking 'cause I love - no benefit to me
I found a pair I had to have - they are my 22nd pair of Fluevogs. Welcome Darjeeling Teapots!
|I totally will, Erin!|
This is my second pair of shoes in the Teapot family - the other ones are my Sencha Teapots (seen here), which I bought in a size 9.5. These Darjeelings are a size 10, but they are very narrow (I have narrow feet) and due to the leather lace-up across the vamp, they can be snugged up a bit. I was thrilled to find that they fit perfectly.
So excited! I have been wanting a really fabulous black shoe that didn't have too high of a heel. Now...I just need to keep Vizzini away from them - he will eat the laces for sure, little bugger.
