August 26, 2010: Urban Safari

Yesterday when I said I only had four pairs of forgotten shoes left I wasn't being entirely accurate... I had one pair of completely fabulous forlorn shoes that I could not make an outfit with but, would could not part with because they are too fabulous! Enter, Dior Vintage Flower Slingbacks!

Aren't they fabulous? I didn't even factor them into my shoe project because I figured if I hadn't been able to do anything with them by now I wouldn't be able to moving forward. Either way, I wasn't going to get rid of them (I love them) so, they were better off in my closet as a memory.

That all changed this morning when I was getting ready. Originally I had planned on wearing these great comfy Due Farina shoes but, I just wasn't feeling the purple and green combo (shocker, I know) and I was inspired to give the forlorn shoes a try... I think it worked out fabulously! I'll be honest they are not the most comfortable things in the world (I bought flip flops just in case) but, they are super cute and I'm so glad I got to use them! Do you have items like that in your closet that you just can't bring yourself to part with but, will probably never use? How do you justify keeping them (other than continuously searching for a way to wear them)?

I've talked so much about the shoes I have completely neglected the awesome dress I got myself for my birthday! I love the look of shirt dresses but, the cut is not always the most flattering on me depending on the placement of the belt loops and that's if it even had a belted waist (crucial). The Calvin Klein dress I wore a week or so ago was close but, the pockets plus the completely perfect shape make this dress absolutely irresistible (despite it's wrinkled state)! This will certainly not be forgotten, neglected,  or forlorn!
