Today is not only the Birthday of the amazing Elin (See what I did there? Magician name because you share your birthday with the great Houdini), it is also the Birthday of this blog. That's right! I've been doing this for a whole year, so lets break out the party shoes and celebrate!
...and talking of party shoes I recently splurged on a very nice pair of black patent oxfords. They are impractical, the opposite of robust, and not that easy to pull off - but the sheer fabulousness is worth it.
My favorite ways to wear them are actually on the casual side. These shoes add instant glamour to a simple sweater dress or boyfriend jeans. For a dressier look they look best paired with a sparkly dress. Keep it on the shorter side to balance out the fact that they are technically men's shoes (the flatter the shoe, the shorter the dress is always a good rule of thumb).
And now it's cupcake time, Birthdays and all...
Peace, Love and Sunshine
