Fiscally Feasible Fashion


I am incredibly hard on shoes, and really need to wear better ones than I normally do. I’ve started cutting way back on the throwaway trendy shoes in favor of shoes I can walk 40 blocks in SF in, or wear on my bike. I love these because they’re super cute, but are made by Columbia, who is a known provider of quality outdoor gear. I was actually looking up a pair of shoes my roommate has, and Zappos suggested these as being similar. Also, I love that this particular color scheme is called “Mud/Lollipop”.

6/4/10 ETA: In a somewhat circuitous fashion, in a few days I will own these shoes as a birthday gift from a friend. WOOT!!

Embroidered skirt

I love love love this skirt. I love how light and airy it looks, and I ADORE all the pintuck and ruffle details. I seem to really like clothes that can dress up or down. I’ve realized I have drawers full of tshirts I never wear, and my “work” shirts get worn with slacks during the week and jeans on the weekends. Even my casual tops are dressier than tshirts. I love that this skirt could be worn with a more casual knit top and a pair of canvas ballet flats, or a crisp blouse and heels. Classic looks and versatility seem to be my thing.

Teal Coat

I’ve been coveting this coat from ModCloth since it turned up on the Feather Report a couple of weeks ago. I’ll likely never own it, even though it’s priced very well for a coat. Am I the only girl who looks at this, and sees a gorgeous, feminine, fashion forward coat and thinks “Hey, this would be perfect over my Sharks jersey on those chilly evenings at the Tank”?
