RFF: Vintage pencil skirt and leapord print

I have a confession to make. I don't own a full length mirror. Crazy, I know. I've been meaning to get one since we moved into our house (3 years ago). So what do I do? I ask husband. I literally put on 2 to 3, sometimes 4 pairs of shoes and have him tell me which ones look better. In this case I had him choose from the new ankle booties I got, and a pair of simple pointed toe heels. He chose the heels. I didn't wear them because I really wanted to wear my new shoes. Turns out he was right. When I looked at the pictures I realized that because I'm short, and because the skirt hit me just above the calf, I really could have benefited from more hope heels. Oh well. That's my fashion faux pas, and my confession that my husband knows a thing or two about which shoes I should wear. He's had a lot of practice over the last 3 years.

Leapord print top: Sisters (gift)
Vintage skirt: Thrifted, $6
Vintage Belt: Belonged to my Gram.
Shoes: Rampage, Ross, $11
Shoe advice from husband: Priceless.

Your RFF photos have been incredible lately!

I used to have a full-length mirror, until one of my kiddos managed to break it into a million pieces. Now I evaluate my fashion by precariously balancing on the edge of the tub and checking myself out in the vanity mirror. (Not recommended when wearing heels!)

So cute. I just stand on the toilet and look down when I want to see the shoes with my outfit...

I freaking love your hair.

Heather said...

Your hair looks great in this picture-so we didn't even notice that you look shorter! I still think you look great!

Justine said...

It looks great either way! Maybe sometimes men do know a thing or two about fashion.

Ok, so I can see why you and your hubby would think that the other shoe would have been better. BUT I think this look totally rocks! The shoe is very unexpected which I think adds a chic-er touch than an expected "pump and pencil skirt" combo. You look GAWGOUS ;) Plus your hair is just killing me right now with how awesome it is

You are seriously a super hottie. Super hottie + fashion sense = you.

My confession to your confession....I really liked the shoes you chose!

Your husband shoe story reminded me of high school when I would ask my Dad which shoes to wear (he always knew best too). Love your sense of style!

ElisabethCS said...

You crack me up! haha I want YOUR hair!!! Thank you for that awesome over the top compliment. I needed it.

I think it's great your hubby gives you fashion advice. Mine barely will. he's like "I don't know"...and it's so not fair...cause I ALWAYS give him advice when HE asks.

LOVE the skirt! You must have a teeny tiny waist to be able to wear vintage skirts. Those things are always so tiny in the waist. lucky.;)

Heidi Jo said...

well you look lovely, but it's funny before i even read the post, i thought to myself....i think the shoe cuts off her long leg line a bit too much.... :o)

seems me and hubby think along the same lines.

show us something next where you pair the ankle boots and rock them.
