New To My Closet - Silk Culture Shirt Dress

Actually, I think it's supposed to be a tunic for someone much taller than me, but whatever, I love it...

Well, maybe I could try it over a skinny jean. It did require me to go hunting for the perfect slip, though I'm not sure how I went so long without owning a decent slip and they're not as easy to find as one would think! I ended up with something more like a long, cotton tank top which (I hope) will be a little more comfortable in the summer heat.

Anyway, the dress itself is the perfect backdrop to almost any accessory and today I wore some of my favorites...

I will always pull out these old snake print pointy toe (perhaps too pointy,) pumps from Nine West when the opportunity comes up. There's just something about them that I can't put my finger on but I can't resist them. They definitely felt right today!

Yup, I have 2 of these necklaces. The other is blue as posted here. They were bargains and I couldn't decide between the two. To my surprise, I wear them both equally. The blue would also be nice with this navy snake skin clutch that I snagged at the Hunt Gather Style pop up shop during SXSW. The HGS ladies are fabulous! This was my second time to check out their goodies and I knew this would be mine the second I saw it! This little card was inside of it...

It sort of makes it even more special!

Hmmm...I just noticed 2 snake prints in one outfit...too much? I mean, I didn't carry around the clutch all day with me while I was at work...oh well, too late!

Closet Craze - White Accessories

White...It's just so clean and crispy! It feels so good for spring! And I'm loving it in accessories. I recently acquired this beautiful leather envelope style iPad sleeve and white stone cuff...

The sleeve is from Marware and if it didn't have it's logo imprinted in the front I might even have used this as a clutch. But I love the simplicity of the whole thing.

The cuff is from ...

(Close up.)
It's pretty big, a statement piece for sure. No other jewelry is really needed with this one, and I'm planning on wearing it with so many things...

(Of course put me in a pair of white pants and and instantly there'll be coffee or something on them...even if I'm not drinking coffee...
Accessories seem a safer bet.)

What are your lastest accessories?

Hooray For Shoes

This was not the style shoe I thought I was going to buy, but I was smitten the moment we met...

They're tall, color blocked and neutral all at the same time.

Welcome to my closet new shoes. Shall we play?
