Style Imitating Art Day!

"Illumination" by Colette Calascione

Shirt - Torrid, Dress - Target, Shoes - Bait Footwear
The second I saw this week's SIA I knew exactly what I was going to wear. I just wish I had remembered to throw on a string of pearls, though! Gah! I love the inspiration this week. It's very compelling in an unusual way. I'm definitely drawn in by it and I was happy to have a dress that evoked some of the color and allure.





Have you guys met my birthmark yet?


Sidenote: I'm really enjoying these shoes from Bait Footwear. I knew going into summer that I wanted to invest in a pair of good brown sandals. I have out grown my former summer shoe of choice, the flip flop, and  I wanted something casual and easy but more mature. These really fit that bill. At first I was afraid they were way too narrow and they were going to cause me a lot of comfort problems but, even before I broke them in, they didn't cause me any problems. Now they fit wonderfully.

I can't wait to keep growing my Bait Footwear collection.

    1. Thanks! I thought the pattern was perfect but then the corset top was a little tongue in cheek reference to the nudity.
