What I Wore: Nautical



Jacket: Club Monaco
Dress: Zac Posen
Cameo Necklace: Unknown
Geode Necklace: Club Monaco
Platforms: BCBG

After much internal debating and listening to the robust encouragement of my fellow bloggers, I finally purchased the stingray platforms. Some of you may remember from my previous posts that I absolutely adore stingray (I find anything aquatic, whether edible or fashionable, utterly irresistible). The tough, pebbled skin is quite tactile and durable--and, of course, stunning. On a side note, I think I am developing an addiction to platforms and a taste for sky high heels! Towering over my students has proven quite useful...

These look great! They're much more flattering on than in the store! Good purchase and thanks for sharing your ZP dress (he's usually my nemesis, as you know!).

I LOVE those platforms. In fact, I love anything stingray. I just wish it was eco-friendly. (Yeah, right.)

I HAVE to tell you about these stingray earrings; I found them a long time ago and have always wanted to get them:

Adoooooore stingray in all things. Those are fab. Although, pourquoi le band-aid? Did the shoes bite?

Question about your shoe size was because my NM outlet has been getting fantastic stuff and having fantastic sales. (And there's a pre-sale starting tomorrow.) E-mail me from my profile if you want to talk more about temptation!

Wow, I love those! I desperately need a new pair of wedges/open-toe platforms for summer. These are beautiful :) You're a very stylish lady xoxo

Thanks everybody for the wonderful comments and encouragement :)

Style Spy--As per the band-aid: No, it's not for a stingray-inflicted bite; I'm a terrible shaver. I nicked myself pretty bad there. But I will say the shoes do chafe a little in the back. Other than that, the shoes were pretty comfortable.
