When the fabulous Megan of Megan Mae Daily mentioned that she'd been out thrifting back in December and saw a pair of Tsubos in a size 9, I emailed her - sure enough, that sweetheart went back to the thrift store and snagged them for $6.00 and mailed them to me. Isn't that the most generous thing ever? I was so touched.
I had to build an outfit around them right away:
|Vizzini's coming in for a rub!|
That's my crackly "Indiana Jones" leather skirt (no link as it has no label), and sadly, this will be the last wear of the pumpkin tights as they blew a hole today.
Here's a look at the jacket open (I untucked the sweater underneath once I got to work):
|See Inigo snoozing on my old backpack?|
I do love them, though, and they fit perfectly! I can't wait to wear them more with bare legs come summer! Thank you, Megan, for such a wonderful gift! I am always on the lookout for things for you!
yellow ones, and my Acreas.
The earrings are ones I rarely wear because they're a bit heavy.
Check out the bottom of the shoes:
Jacket (Jackpot, consignment), sweater (Ellen Tracy, swap from Caro), skirt (no label, thrifted), tights (Esprit), shoes (Tsubo Shala, thrifted gift from Megan), earrings (Plum).
Ohwow! I wasn't sure what to expect when you said you'd be wearing them the next day, but I love this outfit. All the lovely shades of browns and orange are just wonderful.ReplyDelete
They do fit you amazingly, though I agree, they are more of a summer shoe. Now you see why I hated leaving them there!
That is sooo nice of her - and TSUBOS for 6 bucks ! wow that´s like winning the lottery.ReplyDelete
Whoa, I want a friend like Megan Mae! AND, I want that crinkly leather skirt. We have a pillow on our couch in the same weathered leather...but the cover is way too tiny for a skirt.ReplyDelete
A great colour combination! Looking forward to seeing the shoes in summer! I love the soles, they'll hvae a great distinct shoe print!ReplyDelete
Cool shoes. That Megan is a doll!ReplyDelete
I love all the fall colors. So pretty together. And those Tsubos rock! I love Tsubos.ReplyDelete
That is such a thoughtful gift! :)ReplyDelete
You built a great outfit around the shoes - hope they bring you lots of happy wears when the weather is warmer and you don't have to worry about tights :)
Also in love with your skirt- love the zippers!
I love these colors together, and on you with your gorgeous hair. And Megan, what a dreamy girl she is! Fab shoes!ReplyDelete
Drooling with major shoe lust and envy here!!ReplyDelete
You are made to wear orange!
Sheila: Don't know what rock was covering me, but I had never heard of Tsubos before I started reading your blog. I have my eye open for a pair - hopefully about the price you paid for this wonderful pair.ReplyDelete
I love the heel!

What a gorgeous pair of shoes! Megan is such a darling :)ReplyDelete
How sweet of Megan! Tsubos are just so cool- also, I think that your orange velvet blazer is absolutely divine. You can't see me, but I assure you I'm green with envy.ReplyDelete
(oh, and your skirt's pretty darn nice, too...) :)
Megan Mae is AWESOME. I drooled over those shoes forevah but could not afford. That is a great deal!ReplyDelete
