April 15, 2011: Floral, Black, Gold

Dress: Delightful Dozen Swap
Belt: Vintage ($1)
Shoes: Vintage ($9)
Necklace: H&M
These are the photos from yesterday's Delightful Dozen post. This dress of Beatrice's is going around and I'm the third girl to style it. You can go here to read the full text, I wish I had more to say about it, but it's 7:30 am (I scheduled this to post a little later), and my brain isn't fully functional yet.

Suffice to say, these shoes are surprisingly easy to walk in, they look intense- and they are- but the foot bed is actually quite flat. They're some sort of weird loafer/clog hybrid, with a wooden sole and penny loafer detailing. I got them in Portland, Maine a while back and haven't had the chance to style them yet. I'm a sucker for bizarre shoes i guess. Hey! It's Friday!

awww, shut up anonymous. how terrible someone took the time to say that. I was seriously just salivating over those shoes. what a magnificent find! that is a lovely dress as well, I love the slightly lower cut in the back than the front. and of course the charming little bow belt is perfect with it!

Such a great outfit! I love florals with a lot of black..they're so much easier to wear.
And I think I like those shoes too, but it's hard to see the details in front! :)
