The Commentary

Built the outfit around one of Sunday's resale purchases. Saw these color block sandals at Nine West earlier in the year but wasn't compelled to shell out $50+. Good thing, got them for $18 at Crossroads. They're a half a size smaller than I'd like but such is the life of a po' recessionista.


So I think Nine West was inspired by Marni, no?



Ugh. I adore their fugly hot shoes.







My new suede shoes also vaguely remind me of this season's Prada.


And my beloved Chloe bootie-cum-gladiators.








But mostly they are Marni. Loving the signature odd mix of patterns and colors and textures for Spring.


Also happy to see that platforms are sticking around for another season. My feet thank you, 7th Avenue.







Picked the skirt and the sweater to matchy matchy the shoes. But the top was an inspired choice.



Blair Waldorf inspired, that is.










All's fair in fashion. Did you see Leighton biting off my fugly gladiators like Katie in her stirrups did?



Seriously all these stars have to start commenting. I know they are reading. I know I am not delusional ;)

Not only are they reading....they are spying on you through the chips implanted in the fillings in your teeth. Or am I the only one experiencing that?

Love the outfit and of course the shoes. Lucky girl. Would you believe that Nine West is double the price here in Australia.

Fabulous shoe choice as I own the same ones! We should wear our shoes out together sometime. I love that they make me over 6 feet tall.
