Taming of the Shoe

Fun shoes are a great way of adding a little panache to a simple look. 

Dress:  The Limited

I had planned on “taming” these purple faux python heels by styling them with a simple monochromatic look, but everything I was coming up with reminded me too much of this look, and I wanted something that felt fresh.

Heels:  Anne Michelle
Cardigan:  LOFT Petites

So, I went a different direction.  I paired the heels with a zebra print dress and tiger head bangle for a slightly quirkier twist. 

Satchel:  The Limited
Bracelets:  Target and Torrid
Necklace:  Target

The python heels are still balanced by the “gentler” zebra print.  The dress/cardigan combo is simple in shape and color palette, This helps balance out the statement heel while still adding to the visual interest of the look.

Earrings:  trendylittlepieces
Glasses:  Firmoo.com (Available here)

How do you add flair to your simple work outfits?

By the way, I read that zebra prints were “out” this year.  Pshhhh…as if…wear what you want!! 😀
