Primaries

Dress, Forever 21. Vest, Charlotte Russe. Booties, Sigerson Morrison for Target. Bag, Apt 9. Necklace, Urban Outfitters.


Coat, Bebe

I love these booties…but they are hard to pair things with! The intense color demands a neutral background and accents of a similar saturation. When I wear the shoes with skirts, I have to be careful that the skirt length and legwear elongate my leg to compensate for the bootie’s shortening effect. A recap of how I’ve worn them so far:


Any future suggestions?

Nice coat!! I love bebe, wish I could afford them :-( The boots are hot, I saw those my size was sold out.

I don't have any tips, but I must say I love the primary color combo and may have to be a copycat tomorrow.

I love them with all of the pants you have worn them with, but they don't work for me at all with skirts. The Barbarella look is my favorite. They're so strongly colored, I think they really speak for themselves and don't necessarily need other brightly colored accent pieces.

Again...as a boot lover...I just LOVE those boots!

Hi Kasmire. Can you tell me please how you made the photo at the bottom, with the three images of you? Thanks!

I love these booties, I think the way you wore them best was the 2nd one, with all black/white/gray. I think they'd be awesome with some gray acid wash jeans but I'm sure many people will disagree.

I totally agree with Grace. I love the booties but I think pants help make them more of a pleasant surprise rather than an abrupt burst of color. I dunno thats just me.

And I love, love,love the Barbarella look.

Okay, I know you are looking for bootie comments, but I have to ask a question on a different note -- how do you manage a day at work with only a clutch purse?

I typically carry a large purse and it always seems to be overflowing! Do you carry another bag in addition to your purse?

I also agree with Grace.

I totally thought of you today. Target has a really cool selection of feather earrings right now!

Londyn - I can fit all the essentials in a clutch. But if I bring food or workout clothes, then I also bring a tote bag. I like having the clutch so that if I go to the post office or out to lunch, I don't have to drag a big bag with me.

I actually just bought these booties today and I already LOVE them!! :) I was having a hard time deciding what to wear them with, but you gave me so much inspiration!

I really love that blue.. Do those booties come in any other colours? Possibly a bright yellow or green? Also, great outfits!!
