chunky leopard mary-janes and the little plaid dress

Times Square (NYC) Forever 21 is a lifesaver - they're open until 2 am almost every night. I work some pretty crazy hours (why I'm only a weekend "mini-adventurer" =\) so when I need major retail therapy, I can thank the butterflies that I can waddle over to the giant shopping space. I spotted these gray platform leopard mary-janes on the leftover / uglies rack (ie. clearance) and didn't even bother trying them on. Guess how much they were?

$5! Unreal, right? I like to think that these are some of the preppiest shoes I own but I've been yearning for a chunky heel, reminiscent of those miu miu sparrow platforms, forever. Not the biggest fan of gray, either, but I'm in the process of DIY-ing some major bling on these babies. Glad I've befriend E6000 industrial glue as my new bestie ... well, that and pastel rhinestones. :)
Also, I'm coining the term "LPD" right now for little plaid dress. These mod-chic dresses are everywhere and I'm dreaming of impersonating Twiggy every breathing moment. Not really, but maybe....

  12. Amazing dress! I am loving this look. How's the new year treating you? If you're like many of us and have resolved to spend a little less this year, we'd love to tell you about Dorco. We're a shaving company providing quality razors for up to 70% less than leading brands. Chances are you're paying way too much for razors. Plus, by switching to Dorco you can finally afford to change your blades often, which will result in happier, healthier skin (something else I think we all want in 2014!) You don't have to sacrifice quality to save so much, though. Read what others think about our products at, and check out our prices for yourself while you're there. Thanks for hearing us out, and we wish you all the best in 2014!

  13. Fabulous heels and I love how you styled this outfit. Very pretty and classic.
    Have a beautiful weekend!
