I still can't decide if I think these shoes are cute or look stolen from a geriatric gentleman, but they do add a vintage look to this, or probably any, outfit.
I didn't want to wear tights as I was afraid of looking like a doll, but it was too cold to go without. Then I got to work and Elizabeth told me I looked like an American Girl Doll. I had Felicity, Samantha, and Girl Of Today (Abby), thank you very much. A student later told me I looked like Alice in Wonderland. I am going to see that Saturday... but I plan on going as the Queen of Hearts in my new thrifted (threw!) red dress.
My grandpa doesn't actually wear shoes like this. He's more of a white tennis shoe kind of guy.
This brooch, is, in fact, my grandmother's, though. (Well, not anymore... long term loan).
Jacket: White House Black Market
Necklace: gift from high school sweetheart
Shoes: from SoLa
And I'm sure when I actually am old, this is how I'll look at kids who step on my lawn. Snarly face.
This look works for me now. I should buy a cane. And get a chia pet.
