Chambray, Spikes, and Seersucker

chambray-spikes-seersucker-01

These Sam Edelman spiked heels have been one of my favorite purchases this year. I wouldn’t call them practical in any sense of the word, but just looking at them makes me smile. When I showed them to my mom, she said, “You know what you are? You’re a shoe collector. These aren’t shoes you wear out and toss in a few years, these are collector’s items.” Hmm…is that what these are too?

    This is going to sound a little creepy but your legs look fantastic in this outfit!

       LOL! Not creepy at all! Thank you! I never liked my legs growing up (I thought they were too long and scrawny) so it’s nice to finally have learned to accept them. =)

    Love this outfit Kelly!  Can’t wait to see your Manolo reveal.   And good job M!  He captured your natural beauty and style so well!

       Thank you Wendy! He’s been taking notes! And I do think a little excited to try the famous MM back-of-the-shoe shot, even though I doubt he’ll admit it. =)

      Thanks Angie! No new cam…just better photo spot & photographer (aka…the boyfriend is helping me out so I can stop struggling with a tripod and remote for a little while…hehe).

    Very nice! I love the blazer and shorts together.

    My friend and I call our unworn shoe collection our “gallery”. Buying 7″ lavender wedges? I guess they’re going in the gallery!

      LOL! I love it! I might need to use that. =)

      Do you ever watch The Rachel Zoe Project? I love how she calls her clothing collection her “archives”. My closet isn’t quite nice enough for that yet.

    Those heels and that studded ring…great purchases!! :)

    I am on the hunt for something in seersucker!  :)  I saw some shorts at J. Crew, but have not tried them on yet.  But I feel like I need to avoid the mall for awhile. I am trying to hold out until after my birthday…hoping to have gift cards!

      Yes! I can see you in seersucker shorts for sure. Good luck holding out! My b-day is coming up soon to, but the sales are definitely getting to me. =P

    I found this GREAT seersucker blazer on clearance size zero at Ann Taylor with additional 40% off!! So amazing. But it needs to be taken in at waist about 2.5 inches (I like a more fitted look) and sleeve shortened. I’m going to research tailors, but what price do you think I’ll be looking at? 

    I hope not too bad since I really love it (and I don’t want it “ruined” when they are done with it!)

    Love your pix – you look great as usual

      Just make sure not to skimp too much when choosing a tailor and you should be fine. Don’t take it to a dry cleaner tailor, for example. They’ll be cheap, but usually don’t do as nice a job as a tailor who has their own shop. You’re probably looking at about $40-$50 worth of work, but you won’t know for sure until a tailor looks at it. The sleeves, for example, might need more work done if there are cuff buttons that need to be moved up. Either way, slimming a blazer and shortening sleeves are pretty basic alterations that most tailors can do flawlessly. Good luck!

    You always look pulled together even of on a “casual” fabric like seersucker. Can’t wait to see more. Those shoes are awesome!!

    Those shoes are gorgeous!! And I’m so jealous you got the BBs – I got the same ones on sale last year but they were too big :( SNIFF!

      Um…yeah…let’s talk about BB sizing! All the websites say they run small and to order one size up, but I had to size down. Sounds like you’d have to too. What’s up with that?

    Just discovered this website today and I love your style.  Do you ever wear dresses?

    • Reply June 17, 2012

      Alterations Needed

      Thank you, and welcome! I very rarely wear dresses, unless I feel I have to, like at weddings or holiday parties. I don’t find them very interesting, and would rather wear a skirt and blouse so I can play with different stylings, colors, fabrics, etc. I think I only own 3 that I actually like. =P
