Studded Valentino boots

Can you believe that I found these brand-new studded beauties on eBay for a bargain. Since I loved everything studded, my buy now finger hit the mouse immediately. As if I needed another pair of statement boots! What is it with women and shoes?

Anyhow, today’s post is sort of a show-and-tell. Ok, more show. I styled them for a fall casual office look with a pencil leather skirt, pantyhose, utility jacket and statement necklace as an all neutral outfit. Ok, the necklace adds a pop of color to this desaturated look. But isn’t a desaturated look like a plain canva? In my opinion, desaturated looks have something posh chic to them, don’t you think so too?

Top of the World OOTDs

The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.

Sarah, the sewing blogger at Sew Sarah R became my favorite of last week’s party. The bold color combination of purple and yellow caught my eyes. The pops of additional colors from the owl print make the look very interesting.
