Platform vs Non-Platform Shoes

I decided to keep buying platform shoes.  I don’t care if non-platform shoes are the trend right now. I’m sticking with my platforms because my feet needs support when I’m wearing heels.

I don’t want to go back to wearing non-platform heels that really hurt my feet especially with me having some issues with one of my ankles (and I definitely have to stay away from from the no platform shoes with a wide toe area).  I was so happy when platforms made a comeback because I was able to wear a higher heel and not feel any impact pressure or stress on my feet, they were comfortable and I was able to rock them all day without any major problems, especially if there was a one inch platform in the front to level things out.

I can do a non-platform shoe if the heel is 3 inches or lower but above that I need a front platform to ease the incline and make wearing heels more bearable for me.  I was searching for an affordable inspired look to these amazing Guiseppe Zanotti gladiator sandals pictured below and I found the perfect look-for-less on Ebay.  The Guess Ormandi was the winner.  It had the platform and sturdy stacked heel that was missing from the Guiseppe’s and it gave me the same wrap-around inspired detail like the Guiseppe’s .  What was even better was I got them new  for $32 including shipping.  I think the Guess shoes came out like a year ago so hence why I got a good price.  Just looking at both shoes, you can see which ones would have your feet hurting within an hour.  The Guess Ormandi wins hands down, can’t wait to get them!

Eiffel Tower Graphic Pencil Skirt – Mixing Prints



I also found this amazing white rubber purse, I thought this was so unique.  I got it at a Junior clothing store for $10!

I popped my head into Steinmart (a store I seldomly go in) and found this amazing graphic pencil skirt. I fell in love instantly.  I starting thinking about what kind of top or blouse I had in my closet that would set this little baby off.  I knew I wanted to mix prints, it would be too boring to just add a plain basic colored top.Sure enough, I found this top I bought several years ago from Sears.  I loved it because it had a wonderful oriental feel to it and I love anything asian inspired, so I thought perfect!!  It’s also a great pairing for short waisted women.  Dark top and light colored skirt.  It balances out this particular body type if you are heavier on the top (broad shoulders and back, large breast) and narrow on the bottom (slim hips and long slim legs).  I also paired my black top with a black belt so there is some waist definition yet it still blends in with the top so you don’t notice my short waist as much. 

Should have worn white or nude shoes so there is no break in the color of my skirt to legs, I’ll do that the next time I wear this outfit.

I know it’s been a minute since I did a outfit post, life is just getting in the way.  LOL. Actually working alot of hours on my job and that leave me very little time for anything else and also deeply in love so you know how that goes, relationship eating up all my spare time.  I will post here and there just to let folks know I’m still alive, if anybody cares out here in the blogsphere.  I know everybody has transported to Instagram but I’m just not interested in getting on board with IG.  Well the real topic of this post is my deconstructed jeans! 

I love the full cut-out knee look so I decided to do a d.i.y.   I found some Mossimo jeans at a thrift store for $0.99.  Yes, ladies $0.99!  I broke out the box cutter, bleach, my suede cleaning brush and some sandpaper and got to work!  I also checked out a few youtube videos and Voilà!  I think it came out pretty good.  Well, I actually made a mistake with the cutout I created on my thigh; so I decided to sew a white piece of lace inside behind the cutout and that fixed everything.

“Rinse. Recycle. Reimagine.” The Unilever Bathroom Recycling

recycle1

Unilever is launching “Rinse.Recycle. Reimagine.” a new program in partnership with Keep America Beautiful and designed to educate people about recycling in their bathrooms. They want to inspire you to reimagine what empty bathroom products could become through recycling, and ultimately make a small change that holds big potential to positively impact our environment.
recycle2
When it comes to bathroom recycling, there is a gap between knowledge and action.

  • While a majority of Americans are aware that their empty bath and beauty bottles are recyclable, less than half (34%) report always bringing empty bathroom items to the recycling bin. In comparison, 86% of Americans claim to always recycle in general, while 42% that they don’t recycle because they aren’t sure what items are recyclable.
  • Think that empty shampoo bottle is just a bottle? Think again. With just a rinse and a recycle, empty bath and beauty bottles can take on new life and return as hairbrushes, backpacks or even backyard play set. How cool is that!
  • The new Unilever Bathroom Recycling Index found that while a majority of Americans are aware that their empty bathroom bottles are recyclable, less than half report regularly bringing them to the bin. As a result, common bathroom products like shampoo, body wash and lotion bottles could be more likely to end up in landfills than their kitchen counterparts, contributing to the nearly 29 million tons of plastics sent to landfills each year!
Unilever can’t do this alone, and so the company has introduced the Unilever BrightFuture Program. Unilever’s purpose so to inspire Americans to take small actions that add up to a big difference – whether that’s wasting less, sharing more, turning off the tap, turning on community activism or, simply, recycling – because everyone has a role to play in creating a brighter future.
Spread the word by sharing a photo of your bathroom empties being recycled on Twitter and Instagram using #ReimagineThat. Add #Sweeps to your post to be entered for a chance to win recycled, reimagined prizes.

Paisley and Leopard Print

 

I love the new bcbg pumps I got at Ross (I did a separate post on them), but I’m thinking this dress might work better with a light brown or tan high heel sandal instead.

 

 Print Dress – Nouveau Pink
 Leopard Belt  – Thrifted
 Leather Pumps – BCBG Max Azria
 Quilted Satchel – Fiorelli

I can’t stop buying print dresses. I’ll be wearing plenty of them this season. I love this number because it was less than $20. I love the paisley pattern and length. Since it’s been warming up lately, I think it’s time to start breaking out my dresses. I feel like in past years, I’ve started too late in the season trying to wear my spring outfits.  I really want to get some good wear out of what I have as soon as I feel like the weather is breaking.  Now back to the outfit, I think the leopard print belt worked well and make the outfit more interesting. You guys know I love mixing prints.
