Matchy-Matchy Trumps All

Sorry for the bad full-length pic
I had a different outfit planned for today, one that featured a bit of pattern-mixing. But then I saw these shoes in my closet this morning & remembered this top, & omg yay! they match. Because I *big puffy heart* matching. There must be some 1950s throwback gene in me that demands shoes matching belt matching purse & suchlike. I don't care if it's passe, it's my fave & always will be.

What I'm wearing:
Burgundy knit drape-neck top, Macy's
Black pinstripe skirt, Newport News
Burgundy suede cutout pumps, Soffit
Pink & gold earrings, Ruche

Love the punky zipper detail on the shoulders!
But the nails don't match the shoes ;-)

    Hiya! New follower here;

    Those shoes are fantastic! I'm a little envious ;)

  2. Awesome shoes! I *big heart* matchy too. I can't help it!

  3. Love the zippers on the sleeves!

  4. Hee, thanks! Maybe I shouldn't mention that these shoes are pretty comfortable too? I definitely recommend Soffit, it's a good brand.

  5. Thanks! It's such a great detail yet subtle.

  6. I love your shoes!! They look gorgeous. You are a match master :) and always look so well dressed.

  7. It's good your nails don't match - then you can say you totally planned it that way, so you wouldn't be TOO matchy-matchy!

    I always used to "catch it" from the women at the clothing store, because I too love things that "coordinate well".
