Passion For Fashion #42 : Loafers :


I bought these awesome Dollhouse flats (via ModCloth) in the Fall and sort of forgot about them once the snow started falling.  I got them for a steal during a sale event, and decided they were the perfect way to "finish" this outfit.  The outfit itself is repetitive... I wear the dress, tights & sweater all the time.  Just never together.  I kind of like the way the colors play off each other... not quite "monochromatic" but close.

I'm so tired of winter.  And so jealous of everyone that doesn't have to worry about snow when taking their outfit pictures!  It was FREEZING when we took these pics!! Because I didn't want to bother with the tripod, Ruby came out with me and snapped a few shots in about 30 seconds.  She put together an outfit she called her "cool photographer look." She nailed it.


I can't believe how tired I look in these photos... yikes.  Sorry!  It's been hard week, friends, and all I will ever say here is that we all have to work on building people UP instead of tearing them DOWN.

  1. They way the colors get darker as they go down your outfit is just too wonderful to look at! It's like they were all made for each other. And Orange is my absolute favorite color, so of course you had me there! :o)

  6. Those loafers are so awesome!! I'm looking forward to wearing non-snowboot shoes again but it will be a little while because the snow and salt would ruin my favorite pairs of shoes!

  8. A great outfit combination and the shoes are the finishing touch! Hope spring is just around the corner for you. Lately where I am, we're just getting teased with a bit of nice weather and then back to the cold. I am tired of it as well.
