Paint the Town Leopard..ish

Friday, August 05, 2011
Got this shirt at Forever 21 a few weeks ago. It was one of those moments where I gave up after five minutes of being lost in that gigantic fastfash hole when this top caught the corner of my eye just as I was walking out the doors. It's sheer with a tie front. Thought I'd tell you because you can't tell in these pics. I'm not sure what kind of pattern this is.. Leopard? Paint blotches? Whatever you are I love you. Just don't tell my husband. With this shirt, I saw the coral and wore the next closest color - my hot pink skirt! When wearing bright colors, pair with nudes, creams, and beiges to tone down the brights. Or don't, whatever.

Oh, hello, wind hair.

By the way, this is only my second time breaking in these shoes and my feet were HURTING after church. Chase thinks I'm crazy. I think I looked hot. Beauty is pain...until someone designs some wide shoes for me that aren't uglytrocious. Until then I'll have to settle for my method... Le sigh.

Why, yes. I always laugh with my legs perfectly crossed.
I'm wearing a Forever 21 top ($16), vintage skirt ($6), JCPenney pumps (free), and Anthropologie necklace (free).

  1. I'm LOVING bright colors right now, so this outfit is perfect!  My favorite too tight for church shoes trick?  Slip them off while sitting down during the sermon and put them back on afterwards... yea I do that. haha.

  17. Elaine,  you look stunning! I love the pink pattern withe the bright pink skirt. I actually can't believe that top is from F21. It definitely looks like something on par from Loft or BR... :)

  18. I love that skirt. It looks adorable on you! And hey, pain is totally worth looking hot in cute shoes. I'd do the same :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. haha! I always do that same thing to boots I find at thrift stores that are too small but way too cute to pass up.  with leather ones, I read that if you wear like two pairs of the thickest socks soaked in warm water and then walk around in them for like 30 minutes they should stretch easier.

  26. Eeeeeee! 

    I tell my kids that is the sound smile makes.  I make that sound for them when we talk over the phone--how else would they know I was smiling???  Anyway, this is a homerun...right up there with the prison attire. =)

  42. Interesting, I laugh with my legs tucked underneath me as I sit on my luscious throne of a bed. In my dreams, anyway :) Good luck with the shoes, I often give up on ideas of stretching it gets too painful!

  46. First, LOVE the outfit! The top is gorgeous, and I love that you've paired it with a hot pink skirt, which I want now.

    Second, you can take your shoes to a cobbler and he (or she) can stretch them to a wider width in a day or so. I've done it once or twice, and my stepdad does it all the time. It shouldn't be too hard for you to find one, since it seems like you live in a city, but if it is, try looking for stores that sell dance supplies and/or leather goods.

  48. o0h you look great. I still have scars from when I had to break in my Steve madden sandals smh. There is a top similar to that one in express except its tanish with dark brown spots and it comes in dress form as well

  51. I think it took about 10 wears before my stupid wide feet were able to make my slightly too narrow shoes comfortable. Ugh. damn wide feet.
    and yes, you do look hot.
