decisions, decisions...

black booties: maurice's; red scarf: vintage
I've decided to go with these black leather moto booties for my friend's wedding. I sometimes (often) have a tendency to overcomplicate things, and as much as I want to wear the sparkly pumps, I think they're just too much. As Manda put it, they just make my outfit into "a hot mess"! That much sparkle and shine might be appropriate for NYE (which is actually what I bought the shoes for to begin with), but for a low key wedding they're definitely out. So, unless I find something else that I fall head over heels for in the meantime, we're going for these badass booties.


To be quite honest, I'm not feeling particularly inspired by this combo, but I think I need to put it on and see how it looks before I can be 100% sure. Ideally, I'd be wearing something like these...

YSL Studded Suede Platform Sandals, $1095 via NetAPorter.com

Jimmy Choo Jade Crystal Embellished Suede Sandal, $1550 via NetAPorter.com

I've kind of had a thing for YSL shoes recently, and those Jimmy Choos are beautiful. Sigh.

I'm considering investing in a pair of sexy t-strap heels such as these from Express, but I haven't found the pair yet (at least, not one within my price range...). I like these ones, but I don't think I $98 like them.

Yeah, I over-think things, in an extremely irritating and complicating way. But at least I'm not all anxiety ridden over it like I was before. Sometimes I just need to type things out... Granted my posts have a tendency to be a bit long-winded and confuzzling, but that's just how I roll. Yo.

I'm still going to go looking for a new clutch (love you Manda!). I'm loving envelopes, beaded vintage bags and box purses (like the one below). Hopefully I find something I love that's a bit closer to my budget!

I'll let you know what I find! Of course, if you have any suggestions on where I should look, I'd love to hear from you - leave me a comment or drop me an email with your thoughts!
