Red+Camel

20 January 2011















Good afternoon! You will find me in good spirits, as
today is a SNOW DAY! No school, so work, and I am
snowed in at my little house on a hill with wonderful
people. So today I am going to be a child and make the best
of this beautiful snow day. Expect to see (many) photos
in my next post. As for the outfit I am wearing, I
of course wore it yesterday but just found time to post it now.
I thrifted these little red ladies over the summer, and they
have just sparked another interest in me. They even have a (GASP!)
kitten heel which I normally hate, but in this case it is more of a
50's housewife style. And I just love the combination of red + camel,
so of course I had to try this out.

Oh and thank you for all of the kind words you all
left me on my last post! You have no idea how much they
all mean to me. I really appreciate your support
and will keep up my blog this summer to update you all
on my endeavors. Even if you are not having a snow day
today, I hope it is as magical as one!

Normally I am not a fan of kitten heals either, but yours are really pretty. And I simply adore red, it´s a wonderful colour.

I'm really starting to like kitten heels (although I don't own any), esp. these little red numbers!

Dylana Suarez said...

This outfit is amazing. It includes all my favorite elements: red, camel, and dots! Beautiful combination. You look so sweet. Congrats on your Urban Outfitters styling internship! When you said you were going to Philly, I knew it had to be something cool involving either Urban, Free People, or Anthropologie. And I was right! I wish you the best of luck with it this upcoming summer. I know you will be stellar!

xoxo,

Dylana

Your posts are always a delight to read. Not only are your outfits and pictures phenomenal, you are also such a sweetheart and I feel like I'm reading about a friend's daily life - which I just love. (:

Oh and, yes, those kitten heels are TDF!

Anna G said...

I adore kitten heels. They do remind me a lot of shows from the 50's but I guess that's pretty classic style. I'm also really liking the bold red with camel.

ari said...

ahhh! OMG! your camel coat is soo amazing, and I am just loving the camel + red combo right now. Such amazing thrifted finds :):)
