Oh I’m Just Peachy

Yes, this is one of those rare times when I’m actually facing the camera full-on.  Truth be told, I have no idea what I’m doing when posing which is why I look either down or to the side and smile.  :)   Then I cross my fingers that I got at least one or two decent shots that haven’t turned out too cheesy.

Lately I’ve been on a layering kick.  Sweetheart necklines have always been near and dear to my heart and I’ll throw on any tube top with said neckline over a dress.  It’s a simple way to spruce up a dress.  I’m wearing another super old Rampage top over a body con dress from Urban Outfitters, which has a slight puffiness in the shoulders.

So I’ve temporarily banned myself from shopping and I’m actually proud to say that I will get through this month without buying a single item.  Holy crap, I do have more self restraint than I thought.  The exception to the rule was going to be the recently re-released Sam Edelman Zoe, a.k.a. the coveted Balenciaga knock-off boots, but for $345 I will need to pass.  I’m extremely disappointed that these are retailing for way higher than the original price, but I’m sure they will still sell out fast.  You can buy them online at Jildor now and they’ll be in stores at a number of retailers and other Web sites, including Amazon and Zappos at the beginning of August.

    Hey girl! Love layering. It’s a great way to maximize the looks of your wardrobe and keep pieces going season after season.

    I heard about these infamous Sam Edelman boots. Wow. $345 is pricey for high street, don’t you think???

    Third, love that headband on you.

    Hey D! Yes, they’re very pricey, but smart, I suppose, for hiking up the price because of the high demand. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get them when they were around $100 (I think). Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

    I really like the “Working Girl-esque/Corporate Mistress” vibrancy of the BODY con skirt combined with such an “oversized” belt, AND the way you decline it with your usual KILLing Freshness: Ooooooooh YES, Stunning Becs, Radiant “BOMBnextDor from LAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa” !!!!!!!!!!(Pffffffff now I need to catch my breathe)
    Hope you’re Well Dear.

    What an inspirational combination Becs! At first I was confused whether you are wearing a top and a skirt and a tube top over it , but then I got it after reading the post …lol
    I’m definitely going to try that soon :0) hehe

    I said to myself, before even logging into my email, let’s stop by Becs page to say how I caught a small peep of Desperate Housewives of ATL- lol, always thinking of you when I watch Bravo now. NeNe and the other one not getting along, and a basketball player-husband having to retire from injury, that’s about all I saw…

    Great shoes, dear, loving the headband and peach touch too. – My new favorite colour!!!

    I’m a huge fan of layering, so I’m loving this outfit! Great idea just throwing the soft-toned Rampage top over the all-black outfit! And good going, not buying stuff this month! I’m going on a shopping ban starting now. It’s time to actually start creating looks using what I have. Have a great weekend!
