There is a lot of detail to this outfit, so attention must be paid!
I find it interesting that I mixed this sweet Marc by Marc Jacobs Top with stripes, ruffles, and miniature bows with something edgy and dangerous like my Sam Edelman Heels. I love the studs and extra height. These shoes that have their own attitude and read "don't mess with me!" With the heels and my bun, I might have been 5' 7"! (I am 5' 2", this is incredibly tall for me!)
This look felt appropriate for work, but I am sure it could work for a date or even a holiday office party. I am proud of everything I mixed in and it finally feels like the right balance of accessories. I piled on quite a few for that stacked arm candy effect, and I think the accessories worked well because of all the black I was wearing.
The top was actually a dress that had another tier that I did not think looked as flattering on me. I can always reattach it, but when it comes to thrifting, and any clothes you buy, there is only one rule. You should be wearing the clothes, not letting them wear you. Don't be afraid to be creative and put your own spin on things. I received many compliments on this top at work, and it might not have happened if I hadn't modified the dress to suit me! (The shoes received a lot of attention too!)
What do you think? Could you rock these heels? What would you wear with them? Leave your suggestion or link in a comment so I can see your answer!
