First, a couple tempting sale items:
I'd like these better if they weren't patent, but they're a cute color and the perfect shape. Linea Paolo for the win, as usual.
[ Linea Paolo Zara Patent Leather Mary Jane, $70 ]
Satin shoes are heartbreaks waiting to happen, but the colors on this one are too pretty to pass up. (Also, I love T-straps so much I'm thinking of wearing them exclusively. I think they would be a pretty rad signature item, dontcha think?) This also comes in equally delicious black and brown versions.
[ Linea Paolo Branson Pump, $75 ]
And now some non-sale items I found when I hopped over to the t.b.d. department:
God, this is so perfect. High-waisted, swingy silhouette, WITH pockets, and it comes in black and this delicious shade of indigo? Sign me up!
[ Hinge High Waist Skirt, $78 ]
When I look at this dress, I see infinite possibilities. It has a funky back, too.
[ French Connection Strappy A-line Dress, $178 ]
Ok, I know ombre (the fading effect) is a trend that will become passe, oh, yesterday, but this dress is super eye-catching and the silhouette is right on. I say: wear the dress, and when you tire of the ombre, chop it off to make a shirt or tunic. Or dye the entire dress another color.
[ Kensie Short Sleeve Shirtdress, $108 ]
Ever since I've jumpd on the skinny jean bandwagon, I've started looking for tops with loose silhouettes that don't make the wearer look pregnant. This may fit the bill. Also: holy cow, a print!
[ Free People Salsa Bilando Scoop Neck Tee, $68 ]
In related Nordstrom news, I was tooling around Norstrom Rack last night before seeing The Dark Knight (great film, BTW) and happened upon these Pour La Victoire pumps, heavily discounted at $99:
I know I'm not the only blogger intrigued by these shoes. The weird part is that they were really comfortable - plus it's so fun to zip yourself into your shoes. I would describe them thusly:
- Slightly unflattering in a funky, "I don't give a crap" kind of way.
