Spikes, Studs & Lace


Outfit Details:
Dark Denim Top & Lace Skirt - Zara
Stripe Top - H&M
Studded Tote - R&eM (would love these , but also loving this & this)
Conceited Flats - Bakers (get it here)
Cat Eye Sunnies - Mango


My awesome friend Cathy took some quick photos while on lunch today.  This is what I wore to work, very casual but with some pumps this outfit can be ready for happy hour! But I wanted to show you all my lovely and dangerous Conceited flats.  I fell in love when I first saw these flats online about two weeks ago.  Since, I have been trying to save money, emphasize TRYING..I wanted to make sure that I really wanted them and waited until yesterday to finally make that purchase! I have been doing this lately because my closet is filled and need to get rid of a bunch of stuff. It can be difficult, but what I've learned and REALLY need to go by, are some of these rules:

1. Would I wear it now?
2. Have I worn in the last 4 months?
3. Do I love it?
4. Do I have anything to wear it with?

If I can't answer to any of these four, then it means it's probably time to let it go, sell or donate it.

  2. I love the edgy and sweet look. I guess those are also the questions I ask myself when I am shopping. How many times can I use and style it? Is it comfortable? Does it fit me well? Sometimes these questions really help us in letting go with an item.
