Dorothy Moves To Click Her Ruby ShoesPosted: July 25, 2011
And the “shoes in song” theme continues. This is another pair that I bought (read: thrifted) recently. I like the chunkier heels, which means I can walk without having to worry about twisting my ankles (because I do that all the freaking time. Even when I’m not wearing heels. It’s like I have two left feet.)
My outfit today is inspired by this outfit of Sidewalk Ready‘s Kayley. It seems like a no-brainer, but I’ve actually never thought about wearing this dress with a blazer before (cardigan is my go-to outerwear.) Come to think of it, I also might be unconsciously inspired by Dorothy’s outfit from The Wizard of Oz.
Dress: Modcloth, remixed
Blazer: thrifted, remixed
Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden, thrifted
Necklace: gift from my mom (it’s amber from Greifswald, Germany, where my parents, my sister and her husband went to college. The carving on it is apparently a symbol for mining – my mom’s a geologist.)
