Look of the Day: Metallics








   Truth be told, I'm not really a heels person. Not that I don't love the look, I do, but I have difficulty walking in them. Not to mention that at 5'7" I'm already taller than most people I know. Despite this, when I saw these loafer style heels in a magazine over a year ago, I fell in love. However, $119 was a hefty price tag for a pair of shoes that I probably wouldn't wear very often, if ever. Imagine my excitement when a few weeks ago I found them on deep clearance for $27. It was much too good of a deal to pass up.
  This long back story leads us to today, when I was struck with the urge to wear these heels for the first time. They had simply been sitting in my closet, still wrapped in the tissue paper from the store. I am fully aware that the tights don't match well with the heels, but over all, I like the look.
P.S. I'm not sure if you can tell with the lighting, but the sweater is silver. Really silver. I love it.
P.S.S. It's snowing! Its sooo pretty outside.

Heels: Nine West
Sweater: Francesca's
Skirt: Holister
Tights: Modern Heritage
Jewelry: (gifted)
