What I'm wearing:
Hot pink cardigan, MetroStyle (but I think I got it secondhand)
Black T-shirt, Target
Black trousers, Target
Black & pink pumps, Irregular Choice
Black & pink necklace, beads thrifted, rose medallion added by me
Black & pink crystal earrings, random mall accessory store
These shoes never fail to get compliments. Even the male engineers at work -- the ones who wear sweatshirts, shorts, & flip-flops 365 days a year -- they admire these shoes. Women demand to know where I got them. Gay men swoon over them.
I can wear these shoes with a casual work outfit, as shown, or with a little black dress for an evening out. The heel is just the right height to be reasonably walkable all day or danceable all night.
These shoes rock my small, dark world!
Worth a bonus mention is the necklace. I like making this kind of stuff -- simple additions, takes a few minutes, but has a big impact. And, obviously, goes well with my wardrobe.
