Week 6 - Revise and Edit

During the latter half of the week, one of my classes had to revise and edit one of their essays.  Now, if I had to revise and edit my own work (outfits), here's what I would do:
I wouldn't change a thing!  After owning the top and skirt for a couple of years now, the genius idea finally occurred to me to put them together!  My cute red pumps (that are "foot-friendly" for those of you out there who are concerned with wearing shoes with too high of a heel) were the perfect footnotes.

Apt. 9 pumps from Kohl's

Have you ever had it in your mind to wear a particular item of clothing, and you would stop at nothing in order to wear it?

Well, this outfit was a "throw-down".  And by "throw-down", I mean that I was literally throwing clothes down in my closet in an attempt to scramble and put something together with this skirt...while also trying making it to school early enough to get some extra work done.  I like the final pairing of the skirt and top, but I wish that I had either waited on this outfit or worn it with different shoes...maybe a strappy sandal in a lighter color.  Now that I'm typing this, I think I may have a pair that would have worked.....I wonder where they are?


Guess nude pumps

I think I'm okay with this one, although I remember trying on a few other pairs of shoes in an attempt to pick up the coral color in the necklace.  None of them worked.  So, when in doubt, go nude.  As in nude shoes.

For a long time, I have been on the lookout for the right kelly green pump...or kelly green sandal...or any type of heel with Kelly green in it.  It has definitely been a challenge, and I admit to not having worn outfits because I felt that I was missing the right color in the right pair of shoes (see: Tuesday).  I hope that doesn't sound weird.  Or obsessive.  Or crazy.  

Anyway, I went ahead with this look, but I think a pump or sandal with hints of green could have worked better here.  Or maybe blue pumps.  (Huh. I have some of those.)
And maybe some different earrings.
And maybe pushed up sleeves.
And maybe, to avoid sounding weird, obsessive, or crazy, I think that's it.

Shoe Literature Pop Quiz:  What is the theme of this post?

a.  You should have the right shoe for every outfit. 
b.  Shoes are just as important as footnotes.
c.  Nude shoes can be a life (and outfit) saver.
d.  When in doubt, save the outfit and wait to wear it until you have the right shoes.
e.  All of the above.

Enjoy your weekend and week!

p.s. the correct answer was 'e' if you didn't know that already...


  1. Omg, Kish... I have been wanting to find a pair of Kelly Green pumps for the last year and I always say that I need more colored pumps in my shoe wardrobe. They are kind of hard to find though... I don't even have blue yet. I'm slowly working on adding more color to my wardrobe little by little, but it takes time! Love outfit #1 best! Have a great rest of your weekend!
