When: Wednesday June 16, 2010

Purple dress: ? (Panama)
Black shirt dress: ? (Panama)
Polka dot pumps: from this seller on eBay
Black & White clutch: Forever XXI
Black Nine West belt: TJ Max

Where: Started to brainstorm ideas for my boyfriend's birthday which is coming up soon!

Although today's outfit doesn't have so many colors, I still really love how it turned out!! First of all, I have always loved how this black shirt-dress looks over other dresses... it has a summer trench kind of feel to it, don't you think? In fact, I think I almost always wear it over other items rather than actually wearing it as a dress! jeje

Of course my favorite part of the entire outfit was the pumps!! I made the outfit quite simple just because I wanted all the attention to be on these fabulous babies. These shoes are what I like to call "smiley pumps" because it is absolutely impossible for me to look at them and not smile or giggle at least a little bit :) I mean, can you honestly not smile at these shoes?!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this purple dress:

  1. Your shoes are pretty darn cute. If I saw them at the store I'd think "oooh those are cute but they seem awfully frivolous because when would I be able to wear them??" BUT I feel like sometimes those more non-generic pieces are the most fun and special. You did a great job building an outfit around the heels and I quite like your bag as well!

  2. Those shoes are sooooooo cute!!!

  15. Those shoes have to be my absolutely fav shoes you own. (I know your earlier post you said you have 85 pairs of shoes but I think you have many more than that!!!)
