'Alas, Poor [Resolution], I [Meant] Well'


I am REALLY trying to cut back on my spending and to save, save, save.  And so I shall place the thanks blame of the purchase of these fabulous color blocked flats on Isabel of http://foreverunderstated.blogspot.com/!  I freaking love them!! As soon as I saw them on her feet in her blog posts, I knew I had to add them to my collection (and besides, she's all the way in Sweden so I don't think we'd run into each other wearing the same shoes).  With her blessing, I went in search of them.

  Yup, my resolution to tighten the wallet has temporarily gone out the window.  Besides, what's a girl to do when faced with gorgeous shoes, the last pair (in creation apparently) and in her size?  I HAD to buy them.  Thanks, Isabel :)

What article of clothing, worn by another blogger, inspired you enough to run out and purchase it?

Shoes: Zara
Silk Skirt:  eBay - $9
Tee: H&M - $9
Clutch: Clare Vivier
Necklace: Vintage Razza Giraffe
Rings: Made Her Think, A Peace Treaty
Sunspecs: YSLPin It
