green gladiator girl
Hello there! In the days since my last post, I have been mourning LOST, of course – but the blow was cushioned tremendously when I found out I WON the LOST Complete Series set from WeLoveLost.com! Gaaah, I’m so happy! I’ve also been busy and thus crazy-tired – to the point that I went to sleep at 8:00 pm last night! (It was still light out!) And yet, even with 11 hours of sleep, I felt like crap (twitchy eye ALL day) and look tiiired today. Blah!
At least I was bright & cheery-looking:
You’ve seen this dress before, and I didn’t do much with it today (that’s another reason I haven’t posted much this week – wearing a lot of simple dresses that I’ve blogged before), but the accessories are still fun. Also: wow, you can totally see the difference in pics I take before I leave for the day and those I take after I come home from a day at work. (Sssh, pretend it’s awesome!)
Green dress: Anthropologie. (Lots – I totally wrote Lost at first there; hello one-track mind! – of reasons why I love it in the aforementioned post where this dress first appeared.)
Mostly I wanted to post today because of my shoes:
Yes. They are gladiators. Yes, they are one of the original trendy pairs from a few summers back. Yes, they are Steve Maddens (actually Steven by Steve Madden – the better-quality brand). And yes, I love them.
These are actually falling apart to the max – you can see the strap coming apart on my left foot (I have super-glued them all over). But they are so comfortable (really cushioned sole, unlike a LOT of flat sandals) and broken in, and nothing else compares for me. The style name is Banglez, and they are available for pre-order here. But I’m gonna tell you, I’m not sure those are the same shoe. As I said, these have been falling apart, and I love them so much that I actually ordered a new pair last year. Either they changed the quality of the next “batch” of Stevens, or they were a lower-quality regular Steve Madden brand pair, but they were really horrible, cheap quality and not nearly as nice. I sent them back. BUT! Those pre-orders could be the same. I tend to think SM had a cheaper, regular, non-Steven version, and that’s what I ordered. But they were crap. Just sayin’. These are not. Love. /rambling
And here’s that new Fossil necklace of mine in action:
I normally don’t wear a necklace with this – at least not a long one – so as not to conflict with the beautiful braided neckline and cutouts of the dress, but I thought this was fun and colorful and summery. Feather earrings: Target, sequined/jeweled headband: I think Old Navy.
