On second thought

by - Tuesday, March 22, 2011

I have small feet for my height. And since pictures don't lie, I should have worn my pointy-toed shoes with these pants. For some reason the almond-toe looks off -- like it's that one stubby toe sticking out amidst regular-sized ones. Too gross? Sorry for the mental image.

top: LOFT
belt: J.Crew
jacket: Esprit
bag: Chanel

  1. I actually don't mind the shoes at all Cee, in fact I really like this outfit! The pants are quite fabulous. I typically just buy jeans from express, but I might have to give their trousers a second chance. I don't know if it's the trench or the color combination, but I'm getting a strong "Jackie O" vibe here - Love it!

  2. I love the outfit! And I can totally hear you on the small feet factor. I don't think that the pictures look bad at all. I especially like the necklace. It is like a pop of wow with your chic outfit.

  3. i think your feet look fine! they dont look "off" at all :)

  4. You're too funny! I do not notice anything looking off with you shoes at all! I love the way you paired your new LOFT blouse with high-waisted trousers - very elegant and chic!

  5. I think your shoes are fine! I love the combo with white and light grey... so fresh and it goes perfectly with the light blue too.

  6. I think the shoes look great with this outfit! (haha I have the same pair!) Stop being so harsh on your outfits! Ahh love how you wear your LOFT top, it's so chic!

  7. I think the shoes look great with the outfit! I absolutely love that top!

  8. I think you look so polished, Cee. I have small feet too (5 or 5.5, I don't even know my size!!) Your Express pants are beautiful, I love Express pants and want to get more (wish they make waist smaller for 00, that would be perfect)

  9. Cee...I've been secretly stalking your blog! Just stopping by to say hi finally since I started my own blog. I love your style and props to you for doing that 30 for 30 challenge! I want that Vera Wang necklace...I saw a similar one in store a while ago but it was a bit expensive =( Still looking for something similar to it.


  10. Super cute outfit. I really like that jacket. Pairs perfectly with the grey pants.

  11. Such a great outfit! I'm wondering if they may have that necklace in my local Kohl's. It's amazing! I love your top too! I wish it wasn't sold out!

  12. still trying to find a bauble that isn't overwhelming on me. I like how you wore it here w/this simple classic outfit to make it dressier.

  13. aww cee i don't think there's anything wrong with your shoes actually i think the rounded shoes look better then pointed ones would have because your outfit has that relaxed hamptons air about it.. totally chic i love it!

  14. @Callandra - Thanks for your kind words :) All I need now are some Jackie O oversized sunglasses!

    @Lisa Lisa Lisa - Thanks! I debated for awhile, wondering if adding a necklace will take away from the necktie. I'm glad it paid off!

    @Leena, @PetiteXXS, @Tiffany, @Mama Marshmallow - Thanks for the support :)

    @SewPetiteGal - I've been trying to stop overusing smileys... and I don't know if my thoughts are coming across the way I intend. So I'm glad you get my sense of humor!

    @Elle - Ahh... we're our own worst critic, right?! I need to tell it like it is sometimes :)

    @Nelah - I believe my pants are a size 0 (I bought them a long time ago). But I've heard Express has changed their sizing, so I'm actually not sure what I am now. You're tiny if 00 is too big! :)

    @Tina - Hi Tina! Thanks for stopping by :) Try going to sites like ShopStyle and type in keywords "pearl cluster" or "cluster necklace". I think that's how I found my Vera ones. Let me know what you end up with!

    @GorJess Fashion For Less - I bought the necklace a long time ago... but it's always worth a shot, right? Or there's always eBay :)

    @AubreyOhDang! - Try typing in "pearl cluster" or "cluster necklace" on ShopStyle, Etsy, or any of those kind of sites. It's hard to eyeball necklaces online and imagine how it fits on you. I've had so many disappointments in the past. Let me know how it goes!

    @Lisa - I'll take Hamptons chic :) Thanks Lisa!

  15. AHAHAHA, I had to read that line about the stubby toe a few times to get the image. =0P I think the shoes look great on you! Now, if something completely sticks out like a sore toe that would definitely be those pointy toed shoes.
    You are wearing your LOFT blouse! WOW, might I say I really can't decide whether I like it with the blazer on or off. =0D

  16. Isn't it so funny how you hone in on the one thing that bothers you, and no one else seems to even notice it? I think the shoes look great with this outfit...I wouldn't have thought your feet looked 'off' at all!

    And that jacket? Yeah, it's beautiful. I need to find a nice spring jacket for myself sometime soon...

    This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!

  17. What a gift to have small feet for your height! Gosh! I wish! lol I actually like the rounded shoe too.


  18. So no necklace at my Kohl's bummer! Also, I wanted to let you know that I gave you a Versatile Blogger Award.

  21. @featherfactor, @Hannah - Thank you :)

    @Banhannas - Score! I hope nobody else took my comment seriously. My sense of humor is often odd :)

    @Tara - We are our own worst critic! And I'm one of the worst, hehe.

    @rk hall - It's funny you brought this up. Someone remarked that I had fat calves one time, and since then I've been self conscious of my calves! *bummer*

    @GorJess Fashion For Less - Boo! I'm sure there are a lot of similar/lookalikes. Don't give up, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you too.

    @Amy Stewart - I actually went to work haha! I lead such a boring life, that dressing up for work (sometimes) is the highlight of my day :)

  22. You've been mentioned in my most recent post! :)



I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
