Modcloth cardigan. H&M tank. American Apparel shorts. Jessica Simpson hat. Jeffrey Campbell Litas via Edge of Urge. Urban Outfitters socks

This weekend my Jeffrey Campbell gold glitter Litas came out to play in the continuing warm winter weather. Hallelujah, I’m now a Lita believer. They are basically the stuff dreams are made of for short folks like myself, who hope to find a tall husband so they’re offspring will inherit good height genes.

Keeping the look minimal as the Litas are the star, I noticed that I have a habit of usually wanting to match what’s going on at the top with the bottom, i.e. my last minute decision to wear the leopard print socks. If anything, socks (when exposed) have become just as essential to my outfits as shoes.

So if you have any favorite places you shop for socks other than the usual suspects, please send them my way as my sock pile needs to catch up with my shoe collection!

    AAaw Dear Becs, I widely vote FOR the way your bloody RED lipstick AND your glittery “Fetish fineries” tend to hysterize your shorts’ (obvious) “Trendy appeal” !!! “Vavavooooooomissime exquisiteness” . . .

    à Bientôt, Antoine

    Holy heck woman, aren’t you just full of sass! Glitter, lace, and leopard – you’re like every fashionistas wet dream. What? Inappropriate? Sorry. Also, I think I’m going to be down in LA in a couple of weeks, I’d love to plan a night to get together with you and Mel for a drink if you’re around the week of the 7th. Let me know!

    thanks so much, everyone!

    @michelle I bought the socks from UO awhile ago, probably back in the summer.

    @becca Heck yes, let’s meet up. Either shoot me an email or I’ll send you one. And thanks for best, most inappropriate comment to grace SwB. :)

    love this outfit! love every single detail! the lace on lace, the black on black, the leopard print + gold glitter, and that fab lip color, and perfect floppy hat! You look super tall in that Black and white pic where you are going down the stairs.

    As for saturday, I was invited to another event there at the CMC at the Melie Bianco showroom, both events are around the same time but I am going to try my hardest to make both! I am still undicided.. I have a + 1, wish I had a + 2 for you and Mel! Hope I get to see you girls, and more of my TPOLA girlies, it’s really been a while!

    I love your Litas! They’re so pretty and so fun…be honest though, are they really as comfortable as everyone claims? I want to believe it…but I just don’t know if I can…

    Looking amazeballs!

    xo, Ashley

    AHHHH. THE GOLD LITAS. Thank you for saying you thought of me.

    They are so gorgeous. I love how they have that special glint in the sun. Leopard and lace? A smashing combination. You look flawless. Your legs go on for miles.

    I got my hair done professionally. I didn’t trust myself with bleaching over all of my old color. You should totally go for the blue. You would rock that.

    Ohmygosh you have the Lita’s in gold glitter! I think I am in love with your shoes, those are so so hot! And the leopard hat? I die… :)

    Gosh just when I didn’t think the Litas could look more crazy, you go and wear gold glitter ones! :D Loving the combo of lace and leopard, you always look so original.

    Hi, do you like the american apparel shorts? i’m debating whether to get them or not because they’re on sale, but its on final sale so i don’t want to make the mistake of getting them and then it turns out I don’t like it and i can’t return it anymore. Do u recommend these shorts? What is your overall review on them?

  25. Becs
    Jan 20, 2013 @ 19:46:55

    @Chloe Yes, I like the AA shorts! They’re unlined though so you need to wear another pair of shorts underneath them. Definitely recommend getting them — they’re a little on the short side which is why I like to wear a cardigan for a bit more coverage on the behind. Hope that helps! x
