Please Shut Off My Brain Now...

Too much thinking...





Dress-Gap/Belt-H&M/Jewelry-Bauble Bar, F21, Accents Plus/Shoes Steve Madden via Gilt

I also over thought taking these photos...editing these photos...I just plain gave myself a frackin headache...must stop obsessing!  I went out and took photos three times today and I still am not thrilled with the final product...but here I am!  I hate to say it...but I don't think it was the photos, but the mood of the subject of the photos.
I finally found this dress...it was buried at the back of my mom's closet...I had been searching for it for a while.  I had a big meeting, so I wanted to wear something sophisticated, but not stuffy.  I usually accessorize the dress with a wider belt and I had planned on cinching it with my new red one...wearing the red to compensate for Valentine's Day blah outfit and mood I did not deem photo worthy.  But, since the dress has pockets, they laid funny with the wider belt, so I went with the skinny leopard one.  


I have been lusting after these Steve Madden booties forever...and now they are mine! I have been stalking them on Piperlime and Steve Madden for months and never could quite find my size, in black, on sale and at a time my bank account was not doing a vanishing act.  Well last week, I spied them on Gilt, but 5 minutes into the sale, my size was sold out.  About ten minutes later, they popped up in my size and I snatched them up...real quick like!! When they came in the mail, I wore them around the house...love them!!  I cannot wait to style them up with skinny pants and jeans and dresses with bare legs come spring!  Yeah for my new booties!!

Your new booties are super cute! I think you look amazing in these picutres actually. The all-black outfit makes the leopard belt and bright colored accessories.

It's so satisfying to stalk something for a while, isn't it? I think it taps into our old hunter/gatherer instincts. I love me some instant gratification but the stuff I treasure the most usually has been hunted down. :)

I like the leopard belt. Rawr.

I love when the fashion spirits step in for matchmaking duty...especially when the end product is a really hot pair of booties :)

Don't you just hate overthinking? I feel like I've been doing that lately, especially when it comes to putting together outfits. So then, of course, naturally they turn out bad. But I think you look nice here. Nice booties! I actually just made my first ever purchase on Gilt...so exciting!
