'A Malignant and a Turban'd Turk'


It was soooooo hot when I took these photos! And since it was just me and the tripod, I was sweating doubly as much since I had to run back and forth but, no complaints! I'm loving the summer heat!

Thought I'd give the turban a whirl! Was a bit skepitcal at first and thought I'd look like a strange bird of some sort, but I kinda like the look, so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried it. No need to mention the stares I got. Some parts of Jersey aren't as fashion foward, you know.






I just 'happened' to be in Urban Outfitters one lunch hour and while browsing the shoe section, my eyes hit the black Jeffrey Campbell Suebees (see the nude pair here and here).  Took me a second to focus on what I was actually staring at but when it finally hit me, I gasped, grabbed them up and purchased them.  Needless to say that as soon as I got these, Sole Struck FINALLY got them in stock again. But the UO pair are much cuter since they have a thicker ankle strap and instead of just plain 'ol black, the strap's a lovely nude color.

A bit of drama though, the first time out of the box.  Those of you who follow me on Twitter, probably heard my rant already but for those of  you who didn't: I was wallking to work all dolled up with these babies and poof, the strap broke! So I was reduced to walking Quasimodoish the rest of the way on NYC streets and can I just say that people are harsh! Just brushed right by me (I could have had a real infirmity people!!!!!) Tres embarassing! UO was good though, had the receipt on me so I waddled over (thankfully it was only about 2 blocks from my job) and they exchanged the sorry sad ones for a fresh new pair :)

What mortifying shoe delimna have you ladies faced?
















What I'm Wearing:
Top: Anthropologie
Shorts: T by Alexander Wang (also worn here)
Brooches: Lord and Taylor
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Suebee
Turban: Scarf (gifted from Paris)
Rings: Carol Marie Dome Ring, Made Her Think
Earings: Lucky Brand
Sunspecs: Vintage YSL

And so I am reduced to waiting yet again, and hoping that Sole Struck gets these back in a size 7! How cute are they!!!

  4. Hilarious story about the shoe "incident" Glad they exchnged it. Can you image going to work with a broken shoe? Co worker of mine once went to work wearing two different shoes and realized it when they got to work!

    I digress, love the look! The turban looks great on you and those sunnies, I "die"

  18. Bravo for trying something new!!! I love how your turban matches your belt, great colors and love your Anthropologie top. I was debating on whether to get the Suebee's & settled for the AdLong's, instead.

    So far I haven't had any shoe mishaps, but yehey for UO for giving you a new pair. Love these better with the nude strap. I'll keep an eye on the leopard's for you & keep you posted.

  28. Fantastic photos and I've never considered taking pictures in a parking lot but I will now! Love the colours up against the black and white top. That shoe atrocity sounds horrible..I once had the heel on a boot completely break off! HAHA...it was certainly a challenge to get home that day, that was about 4 years ago and I was travelling on business too!

    i've come close to twisting my ankle many times with the danys...and i have day-mares about falling! i should really rethink wearing them before i actually do fall and break my ankle.

  79. Hi There,
    I love the turban, you did an amazing job tying for your first time. I can so imagine the looks and your courage to step out of the comfort zone. Good for you. San Diego is the same way, just not ready for edgy fashion statements. But good thing is you are next to NYC and we are next to LA. It helps.
    The shoes are perfect and yes the nude strap just adds interest. Sorry it broke but at least they had another pair your size to exchange.
