Shoes, shoes and more shoes!

Hello fabulous folks!  I've slacked off on updating my blog as often as I use to, but hey life happens so what can I do?  Ok, I've been searching around for some cute shoes to buy.  I'm really looking for sale prices but of course the shoes I want are never on sale.  I did make a purchase that I'm excited about, they weren't on sale but they are so cute I just had to buy them right now.  These Jessica Simpson shoes made me lose my breath when I saw them.  You know I love the wooden heel, it's a nod to my favorite era the 70's:)  I'm waiting with bells or should I say bell bottoms on until they arrive.  I promise to do an outfit post when I get them!

Now these shoes from TopShop I want badly but I really want them to go on sale.  I keep going back and looking at them.  I know me and I know if they don't go on sale fairly soon I'm going to just get them.  I'm a little hesitant because they ship from the UK and I'm not sure how much of  hassle it's going to be to return them if they don't fit properly.  I love the stitching on the top of the shoe and the overall retro feel.
The following shoes are ones that I just think are cute. I'm not realllly thinking about purchasing them just yet.  Although I do need a haute red shoe!

Thoughtful Co-Worker

I know, I know, I couldn't come up with a catchy, creative title so it is exactly what it is.  Anywho, I was meandering around my room trying to straighten it up and put things in there place!  *sigh* because I have a small room and it just seems like it get's out of control so quick!  As I was  looking around, my eyes landed on a box that contains a cute, cute pair of shoes that my coworker gave me.  Shout out to Socorro!  She asked me one day what size shoe do I wear, I told her and next thing I knew she brought these shoes in!  They are vintage Caressa's and are in the original box..Socorro and I both have a love for vintage clothing and  can sit and talk for long periods of time about our thrifting adventures and what we found.  I have yet to wear them but I do reallly, really love them!  Look, aren't they cute?! Oh, by the way these weren't vintage when she purchased them..she bought them new and held on to them all this time!  (waiting for me to come in to her life:0) Hehehe...

70's Child

I know I've mentioned before that I am a self proclaimed 70's child.  I seriously love just about everything from the 70's, the music, the clothing and I have a huge collection of those "blaxploitation" movies.  I just love it! I'm always on the lookout for items from this era when I'm out thrifting. I've even thought about growing an afro, but that might be taking a little bit to far..hmm?  I found these items while surfing tonight..

Found on Polyvore

Halston -found on

Halston Jumper (sorry, don't remember the site)

Chiffon top and bottoms

I found these Ulf Andersson pants on a recent thrifting jaunt.  They are super cute but super long on me.  I'm only 5"2, so I'll have to have them altered.  Can't wait to wear them this spring!  Do you identify with a certrain era when it comes to your style of dress?  If so, which?

Hello fabulous folks!  I know it's been a while, I've just been busy with the holidays and family.  With the start of the new year though, you know there is some reflecting to be done.  I've looked back over the last few years, not just the past year and of course hindsight is 20/20:) I've made some decisions and changes in my life that I'm so happy about!  Some things that I should have, could have done a long time ago and just didn't.  I'm excited about what this year has in store for me! I appreciate y'all for sticking with me and I promise to be back with more fashion real soon!
