OOTD :: of black and white and plaid all over



10.6.14So. Argh.

If you’re a regular reader, you know that my favorite colors is plaid. And it’s Mad for Plaid over at SpyGirl this week. This should’ve been a match made in heaven.

Unfortunately, I’m still in the midst of my 50 Dresses challenge and woe is me! I have plaid shirts and blazers and skirts and shoes. But I only have one (ONE!) dress and I’m saving it for Friday because Friday.

Oh, what’s a gal to do? (Please permit me yet another indulgent first-world problem dwell.)

Why, incorporate all my plaid items into dress ensembles, of course!

Today, I give you a pair of plaid heels from Betsey Johnson’s collection. They’re thoroughly uncomfortable – surprisingly not because of the heel height but because of the toe box which is unnaturally short and my toes keep stubbing themselves within the shoe when I walk – but I keep them primarily because they’re plaid and I paid a pretty penny for them and I’ll be damned if I get my money’s worth before surrendering them to the cull pile.

Because the shoes are the showpiece of the outfit, I chose a simple black and white look up top. The only acknowledgement to embellishment is the bit of sparkle on the top’s bib-like bodice. I do want to point out that I’ve finally successfully duped that style I so love – that whole top under dress thing. I guess I just needed the proper dress to accommodate my rather fussy body, eh?

    Love, love, love the shoes. Sad that they are not comfortable. I have decided that I am willing to pay more to be comfortable. In fact, even if I love shoes, I’m thinking that I can’t buy them if they will hurt. It makes me too grumpy!

    Those shoes really make that outfit zing! I like the idea of plaid shoes because they’re kind of unexpected. Now that I’ve typed that I realize that I want some plaid shoes…
