Fashion-Forward Oxfords Now on Sale for Under $35

I share all of my looks on social media. Are we Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter official yet? When I recently shared my outfit with the long cardigan (see that post here), I received so many questions about the shoes I had on. So, here’s a quick follow-up post that highlights those fashion-forward oxfords. Get this. My gold pair is now on sale for under $30! They are leather oxfords that originally retailed for $100. I thought I should I also let you know that they’re available in two other colors—tan and silver. And, those two colors are on sale for under $35.

Fit? Reviewers rightly indicated that these oxfords run about a 1/2 size large. So, I took that advice and found my perfect fit. I usually wear a size 8, but I’m wearing a size 7 1/2 in this style.

I Rocked a Bodysuit Outside and This Happened

Venus, one of my brand partners, asked me recently to produce content for their “Meant to Be Seen” campaign, which highlights lingerie so fly that it ought to be shown. I embraced the opportunity to step outside of my box and try something different—the bodysuit. In my eyes, bodysuits are filled with challenges, opportunities. On one hand, bodysuits give that perfect tucked in look, but wearing them isn’t always easy. Anyway, I went all out, and I chose a super sexy lace piece to indulge in the bodysuit trend.

Y’all, I tried on the lace bodysuit and immediately felt empowered. There’s just something  special about the streamlined silhouette and the peek-a-boo details on this particular style. And, once I wore it outside, I actually enjoyed wearing it despite its challenges. Bodysuits may have won me over just like jumpsuits did before.

For now, I’m wearing the bodysuit with fluid tie-waist shorts (also see these shorts here, here, and here). I imagine dressing up this piece later with long wide-leg pants or a flowy maxi skirt. Ultimately, I think rocking less fitted items on the bottom will strike a nice balance with a sleek bodysuit.

By the way, Ive been shopping for a replacement pair of cutout oxfords since I completely wore out my old Steve Madden pair. I stumbled upon a hip style (also in other colors) from Chinese Laundry. They’re leather and metallic. They’re also 70% off right now ($29.99)! Following the suggestion of reviewers, I sized down a half size to a 7.5 (I usually wear an 8) and found my perfect fit.

Back to bodysuits. I loved today’s featured style so much that I also ordered this long-sleeve style for fall. Have you been feeling bodysuit trend?


Throwback Thursday: How to Style a Vest for Fall

I’m so excited about Girls Night Out at Christopher & Banks in the South County Center next Thursday. I hope to see you there. I’m wearing one of my new favorite pieces for fall—a faux suede vest—to the event. I love vests, and I’m especially fond of that one because of its luxe texture and drapey silhouette. Today, then, I’ve decided to throw it back to one of my favorite looks styled around vest from last fall.
