Indigo Rose Design Giveaway Winner, Lace Dress, Balenciaga Work

Thank you everyone who entered the Indigo Rose Design jewelry giveaway :)

The winner is: Katie S!

Congrats Katie! Hope you pick a fantastic item for your prize!



It was cold today, so although I'm not a fan of tights and peeptoes....I wore them anyway! And I think I may have looked like a little old lady, haha. I had planned this outfit without the tights but the weather didn't cooperate.

Here's what I wore:
Jacket: Asos Boxy pocket cropped jacket in white
Dress: Asos Midi dress in lace in black (on sale)
Necklace: Freshwater pearls, gifted
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design black leather Swarovski beaded wrap bracelet
Shoes: Nine West "Peggy" black wedge heels (last worn here)
Bag: Balenciaga 2005 Magenta RH work
Crazy unflattering pose in both pics - all my own :P

Very sad that these shoes broke today! I've only worn these wedges a handful of times since I bought them, so a little annoyed that they tore. It may have been the shoe rebelling against being paired with tights ;)  Was difficult to keep my foot in the shoe after it broke, glad I had my backup black flats under my desk at work. Will be returning them to Nine West this week and hoping for a refund.

Hope you all had a better Monday - with no broken shoes! ;)

  1. I managed to ruin one of my Chanel flats, but the shoe maker could repair them. Thank God! Hope your shoe drama will turn out okay too!

    Shame about the shoes, Nine West is supposed to be fairly good quality I thought :/
