Dorothy Moves To Click Her Ruby Shoes

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
Belt: Forever21
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.)

  1. COOL necklace, very pretty shoes, and an altogether lovely outfit!

  2. Cute red shoes! I recently thrifted a pair of red shoes that are similar! I like the chunkier heel too since it’s easier to walk in. I recently wore a blazer with a dress instead of a cardigan, and I was surprised I liked it! =P I guess seeing it a lot on other people helps with that perception! 😀 I like your blazer too!! Sooooo coool that your mom is a geologist!!!

    I find that a dress with a blazer is a very chic combination- I even dared to wear it in my first interview! Coincidentally I also wore it with dark red brogues. What is it with red that makes it both bold and matching with almost every other colour?

    Love this combination! Glad you tried it with the blazer. 🙂
