the marble faun

16th December, 2011

to cut to the chase: for me, this outfit is all about THE SHOES!!! i’m frenetically obsessed with these works of rodarte art. they originally walked the runway as part of look 3 in the spring 2011 show ~ and recently became mine (for a song!) at the brand’s sample sale. swooooon.

{ tiffany & co sunnies-turned-tinted-spectacles (originally introduced in THIS POST), halston heritage trench,
white + warren sweater, corello belt, gifted dee & ray skirt, gifted camille zarsky wallet (big enough to also hold keys & phone when i don’t want to carry a proper bag), rodarte shoes }

  • Giada

    Really nice skirt!!
    The total absence of tights makes me think there's a hot wheather in NY…isn't it?!


  • Colleen

    Those shoes are CRAZY AWESOME! You've styled your outfit around them perfectly. Your outfit doesn't overwhelm the shoes, and I also feel like the skirt matches the shoes really well. Cheers to that!

  • ClosetConfections

    Those shoes are lovely works of art! You're so lucky to have found them at a sample sale. NYC sidewalks can be so rough on a girl's shoes that I'd be afraid to wear them too often, lol.
