can make you sick.
Which may just be why I tend to wear sweet frilly dresses with rugged, casual boots.
They add a little edge to take the edge off.
If that makes any sense.
Wore them with bangles from all over the place (my mom found the black and white zig-zaggy one in Mexico years ago).
It’s sort of like my little Estelle Getty — she may look sweet as can be, but she’s one tough lady.
I’m obsessed with bangles right now. And those boots are exactly the kind that I want this fall. Unfortunately it’s impossible to find shoes/boots that fit my size 11 feet :( Will have to make a trip south.
you could fight crime with that stylish combo.
gorgeous. and you know I love those boots already.
I need to ramp up my bangles collection, but i’m thinking a wack of silver ones.
I am loving this outfit! It’s so classy, and I love the boots!
I need new boots like that! Mine were destroyed by all the salty snow in Calgary :(
PS: I noticed the writing on the mirror … love note? :)
Can’t believe you are so cool in a sooo effortless way….
The boots looks lovely and the match with the little dress is really cool.
And your kittyyyyyyyy cat is lovely!
I love your outfit….I pretty much love everything you wear!
I’m a big fan of black….or should I say black is a big fan of me, because no matter how hard I try to add color to my closet, black pieces just find me :)
I’m a big fan of the accessories to elevate or downplay looks right now! Bravo on the boots and the bangles. Boots and bangles– hey that sounds like a specialty boutique of some sort ;)
Hope you enjoyed your weekend, my dear!
Tales — Maybe try Nordstrom? They have the most amazing selection of shoes and would hopefully have them available in size 11.
Bruce — you’re so right. I can use my orange belt in karate to fight evil.
Liv — a bunch of silver bangles would be so gorgeous.
Lianna — thank you! I found the boots at Nordstrom in Seattle last year.
Jess — the writing on the mirror is actually a quote from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It says “I don’t think I’ve ever drunk champagne before breakfast before. With breakfast on several occasions but never before, before.”
Sofia — Getty says thank you.
Alinka — I’m so with you on black — it’s so classic, so easy to coordinate aaaaand it lets you focus on textures rather than colours and prints.
Dreamsequins — why don’t you open an NYC outlet of Boots and Bangles and I’ll open one in Vancouver. Sound good?
Very cute! I adore Audrey Hepburn. There is a giant print of her at Ikea that I want so badly. That mirror is fabulous.
those bangles are so cute! and i have to say your mirror is marvelous!! is that your own writing on it?!
i love everything about this, except the cat. sorry cat – not so into cats.
this dress is rad and the boots are too! the dress i wore to your wedding is kind of similar (post major hem job). boots could be my solution to the MAJOR hem job.
BIG UP for The Anthology!!
I know exactly what you mean about counterbalancing the sweetness in an outfit. I’m drawn to ladylike, demure pieces and lace, ruffles, and bows, but I try to wear this stuff with streamlined pieces, or I’ll toughen up a girly sun dress with a studded belt. You’ve done a great job of it here with the boots and ruffled dress.
WOW! I luv your dress, it’s solely deliciously Charming and Delightful ! – And your FAB soles are solely the cure to a SUGAR OVERDOSE!!!:)
Oh i l ove your dress its so cute!
Your bangles are really pretty too!
BTW- thanks for the award you gave me a few posts back. I FINALLY posted it on my bloggie! xx
Gorgeous outfit, Kelsey ~ you look fabulous!
love the outfit! and those beautiful bangles!
Totally agree with that style philosophy. I think wearing something too matchy matchy makes an outfit look a bit boring, so I never combine girly with girly or edgy with edgy… looks a bit boring (like you walked out of an editorial). Love the boots and the dress (esp. the ruffles). Ooooh, and all your jewelry of course :)
Love the outfit,
BTW i tagged you with a lil award on my blog
That dress is killer and the boots are a perfect complement to it!
Gorgeous legs… If I had legs like you I would wear those boots too :)
I think you’ve gotten the perfect mix of sweet and sexy there!
Where’d you get that dress?
By the way, if you opened a bangle shop in Vancouver. I would visit. Or at least have an online store ;)
