Waiting for the Train

dress- vintage J Crew (but here’s a super similar one on sale!), jacket- thrifted, shoes- Calvin Klein

A lovely little old lady who saw me taking these pictures said that I “sure looked like I had somewhere to be”. I actually did not, but this is just such a look that it does demand a circumstance. The dress is actually backwards, as I prefer the straight across neckline to its original v neck. It’s 100% cotton, which means that it holds its shape wonderfully, and drapes like a dream. And then we have the shoes, these darling, darling shoes. There’s honestly no other word for them.

Back in eighth grade, I wrote a research paper about the impact of fashion on our daily lives. Quite a topic, right? I ended up doing a lot of research about the history of fashion, and like so many before me, fell in love with the 1920’s look. And what’s a roaring twenties outfit without t strap shoes? I found these on super sale in Nordstrom rack, and for the life of me cannot find them anywhere else (okay, I actually found their sister shoe, and am starting to think the reason my pair were so on sale is because they don’t have a second strap). They have a wider toe box than most pointy toed shoes, and I’ve danced in them for four hours without wanting to cut my feet off, making them my favorite heels. Also, they just look like fashion blogger heels. Nothing screams liking to take endless photos of oneself in front of graffiti walls like tri-toned stilettos.
