Leather Blazer, Lace Midi Dress, Emerson Wedges, Balenciaga City

Here's what I wore to work today:

JacketAsos grey leather blazer
Scarfblack and blue Alexander McQueen paisley print scarf from Matches Fashion (similar here)
DressAsos midi dress in black lace
ShoesBigW Emerson black platform wedge (similar here)
BagBalenciaga 2010 sorbet RH city (similar here)

Close up of accessories:
NecklaceIndigo Rose Design pearl and antique gold long necklace
Bracelets: the usual plus Indigo Rose Design black freshwater pearl bracelet, gifted faux pearl bracelet and Marc by Marc Jacobs enamel turnlock stripey hinge bracelet in black and white

I liked this outfit today - especially the heels. When I bought them from Big W a couple of weeks ago, I tried them on back in the office to see how comfortable they were. Someone spotted them and complimented me on them just before a big meeting, and for the rest of the day people were asking me about them. It was really funny seeing all this interest in a pair of shoes!

When I walked in to the office today I passed a colleague who exclaimed "You're wearing those shoes again!". You know you have a winning pair of shoes when people remember them! :)

I last wore the jacket here, the dress here and the bag here. This is the first wearing of the shoes on the blog.
