It's escaped your world.

Atop my list of necessary items to buy this season were nude heels. I had been seeing them all over the place.

These leather pumps are $90 at Aldo.

And these suede Steve Madden pumps are $89.

However! I managed to find these at Marshalls for a mere $30:

Mission accomplished, if I do say so myself.

Out of place.

Back in January, I was really into those Acne wedges and all shoes that vaguely resembled them, if you can recall. Now, I have developed a new shoe interest that keeps me up at night.

It all started with the Balenciaga harness boots:

In my humble opinion, I don't actually think that these are too terribly attractive. Which is convenient for me because there is no way in hell that I could afford to buy them. But there's something about this concept that intrigues me.

Next, we encounter the Sam Edelman knock-offs, Zoe. These are sold for around $300+ (although I did find some on eBay that I bid about $25 on because I'm a ridiculous optimist, but I lost that auction, naturally). What I dislike about these is how low the segment between the heel and the rest of the shoe is, for some reason.

These are Lucyd Acyd's Witchery Buckle Boots. They cost a little over $70 and certainly are appropriately platformed, but I am just not thoroughly sold on the weird faux pony hair.

Finally, these are the ones that I really want! They were being sold by this online shop-community called Vestiges for around $50. However, by the time I decided that I couldn't live without them, they were sold out of the really high ones, so... what's the point? And, usually, when I could find these shoes for sale, the largest size they carried was an 8, so it is unfortunate to be me.

Well, nonetheless, these are the shoes that I currently am on the lookout for, so I'm hoping that the perfect ones come along one of these days.

Down in the park with friends of mine.

Hey! I have not posted in over a month. I am quite sorry. I am finished with school now, though. For the summer, at least. So I'll be sure to take better care of this blog.

That being said, I did take some pictures ages ago that I never posted!

This is an outfit that I wore to a picnic in the park with my friends (Sam took the second picture!). It consists of this skirt that I'm pretty sure I got for a penny or something at Wet Seal and a Marilyn Manson (of course) t-shirt that someone gave me. I think it made a neat combination.

And another! This is a dress that I hadn't worn for years, but I threw on a cardigan and some boots, and it turned out very nicely, I believe.

There you have it! I promise I'll try updating more frequently from here on out.
