Today’s look was definitely inspired by my mood. I’ve been feeling a little uncharacteristically melancholy the last few days. That feeling has made me gravitate towards black and darker colors.

Blazer: Forever 21+ (Available here)
Usually, I am inclined to pair this dress with bright pops of color and play up the fun, feminine vibe of the dress. Today, I wanted to give the dress a little more of an edgy, artsy feel.
I added one of my favorite necklaces, a bold cuff, and lace-up shoes.

I paired the dress with my cropped tuxedo blazer. I’m a naughty fashion blogger for wearing this jacket three times in two weeks, but I’m really loving it. It’s hard for me to find a cropped blazer that is actually short enough for my petite frame. This one is perfect! I’ll be on the hunt for more 21″ long blazers.

Shoes: Target (old)
These shoes are full-on Monet (I watched “Clueless” last night :-)). They look okay in the pictures, but they are so old and worn out. I love these shoes, and I
haven’t found a shoe that I like enough to replace them yet. These
shoes are interesting and super comfortable – a combination that’s very
hard to find.
I develop very little attachments to clothing, but I find it very hard to get rid of shoes. It’s hard for me to find comfortable heels that fit my tiny, wide feet. These shoes are actually a little big, but they’re so comfortable, I’ve gone through two pairs.
While I often shell out considerable money for clothing pieces I love, I have typically gravitated towards inexpensive shoes. If I can’t find shoes that actually fit my feet, I figured why spend a lot of money on them?
Recently, I’ve been checking out some custom shoe web sites, like Shoes of Prey. I’d like to have better fitting, more high-quality shoes, even if that means having a much more edited shoe wardrobe.
Have any of you ever purchased custom-made shoes? Were you pleased with the results?
