Pre-Bay OOTD

purple silk top by DVF
J.Crew rosette cardi
Off Fifth skirt
flats from Brazil

I wore this before I left for SF but never had time to post it. I paired it with my 3/4 length sleeve built in scarf MBMJ coat.

The Shoes were a purchase from Brazil.

And I realized later that they might be a little too close to some Christian Louboutin flats. Not exactly. But a little close.

The shoe industry in Brazil is pretty extensive but a lot of the boutiques and fancier stores had taken obvious inspiration from aspirational brands. I saw Brazilian-style Varinas, Revas, and Chanel-esque flats. And when I got home I saw the shoes that perhaps inspired the ones above. I feel a little mixed about them now but they are so comfortable and cute that I can't just not wear them.

BTW don't forget to email me (jesspgh at gmail dot com) your hardest working garments!

I love that yellow cardi, Jess! It's so cute! I've been wanting a yellow cardi lately. Very cute outfit.

Those shoes are absolutely adorable!!! That's really interesting about the shoe industry in Brazil. I know what you mean about feeling a little funny wearing things that might be knockoffs but in all honesty, I did not even think of the Louboutins when I saw your shoes. Super cute!

Those flats are still some sort of fierce! And they're a fantastic memento from Brazil, what can be better? I love wearable souveniers!
