The Devil’s in the Details

Top: Chelsea
Jeans: Grace Hill @ Ezibuy
Brooch: Button Tree
At my age I’m probably far too old to consider wearing such silly and adorable shoes, but who the hell cares, right?
I wore them out today to hit up the shops on my afternoon off (where I met reader Erin – Hi Erin!). They’re real shoes with real soles – not a lot of support or cushioning, so you wouldn’t want to go hiking in them, but for a jaunt around the city they’re perfectly comfortable.
I got a few comments about them, with one sales assistant asking if they were Tasmanian Devils. Officially they’re Chihuahuas, but I have a soft spot for Tassie Devils, so I’m sticking to that story.

The brooch is new too – I bought it from The Cat’s Meow about a week ago, because I needed a little pick-me-up – I seem to be on a bit of a bird kick at the moment…

  1. I am 47 years old and I would wear your cute as can be shoes, although mine would have to be chihuahuas as I have 2 real ones laying on my feet right now!

    BTW you are my fav fashion blog. You wear gorgeous clothes that could be doable on my body. thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oh, your killing it for me this week (in the best way possible). You look both gorgeous AND comfortable. LOVE the top and the brooch, the shoes are super cute too. I think agre be damned – wear whatever gives you a lift.

  3. Ohh I love the top and the shoes. My first thought was that they were tassie devils.

    Super cute.

    Ohh forgot to mention I saw your pics on etsy in your fab black dress.

  4. OMG I just officially fell into a grand girly crush on you (not in a lesbian kind of way though….lol) – you have simply the most awesome wardrobe with just the right amount of quirkiness – I love those shoes so much!!!!

  5. Thanks Helene! I'm a firm believer that you're only as old as you feel you are… so I'm about seven here!

    They're great, aren't they Luinae! Thanks for commenting!

    Hiya, Lesa – I'm so glad you're ejoying the blog! I'm having a blast writing it! You should definitely splurge on the shoes if you have two little puppies already!

    Sal – I completely agree! The top's deliciously comfortable, a lovely soft merino and only $59 down from $170 (?) at the Chelsea at DFO – They also had it in black, grey and navy – I'm pretty tempted to go back…

    Hi Sandra, lol – what were you looking at from MyBlackDress? Are you going to treat yourself to something special?

    Oooh – Thanks for that Mars, I will!

    Thanks Gembalina! Check out her full range – It was sold hard to make a decision between them!

    LOL, thanks for that mummabee! I love a bit of quirk!

  6. Hi Lilli!

  7. Hi Lilli, oh you are so lovely to have remembered me :). It was really terrific meeting you, I only wish I could have been looking half as fabulous as you!

  9. Hi Lilli! I'm Jenipher on CurvyChick 🙂

    I <3 that top! What's it made of? The one you're wearing looks like it has more structure than the Etsy one? Hit me up girl – I might wire you some cash to pick one up if they make my size…

    p.s. <3 the blog hard!!

  10. Hi there, Jenipher!
    It's 100% lambswool – thankfully not scratchy though! The size I'm wearing was the largest (size 16) but there's a bit of room… Hope this helps 🙂
