  It didn't take me long to decide I would like a pair of these sandals by Fleeps after I saw a friend of mine wearing her new bright yellow ones.  The style is pleasantly novel, and they come in so many pretty colors.  

  I already have a few pairs of havaianas in a couple of bright colors so I thought it would be nice to order these in "galaxy blue" because the dark color against my frog's-underbelly-white feet would highlight the Fleep's unusual style:

ootd- #ArchivebyAlexa Misty Dress

Archive by Alexa "Misty" dress |  Sam Edelman sandals

  i love this dress.  I only planned on getting the frilly white blouse from Alexa Chung's collaboration with Marks & Spencer but this dress really caught my eye as well.  I ended up ordering it twice because the first time the ruching on the bust was crooked.  Also, the construction of the sleeves is a bit off-  they are a little restrictive if you were to try and reach something out of the cupboard above your head, for example.  I am still keeping it though because it is pretty and I like wearing it.  I just won't try to high-five anyone when I'm wearing it.

  It's been very easy to order from Marks & Spencer.  The order came really fast.  I have just sent off my return, so I'm waiting to see how long it takes to process,

  This a UK 12.  I usually wear an 8 or 10 in US brands.

Pretty Pink Lipstick Shades

  These are my pink lipstick shades currently in rotation.  And when I say "rotation" I mean the lipsticks that are forgotten inside a coat pocket until the next time I wear it, or that live inside the cup holder in my car.

  The color swatches are in the same order as the lipstick tubes.

Stuart Weitzman Minx Review

  I found my pair of Stuart Weitzman Minx wedges at Nordstrom Rack about two years ago.  I really like the braided trim detail around the base of  the footbed.  They are very lightweight and comfortable to walk in despite their height - 4 1/2" (1" platform),

Birkenstock Arizona vs. Gizeh

  When I first wanted to get a pair of Birkenstocks I wasn't sure which style to try since I really liked two in particular, the Arizona and the Gizeh.  I bought the Gizeh in Stone and a few months later I broke down and got the Arizona in Black.  

The Arizona:

One of each:
