Did you notice the sad face next to OOTD in the title of this post? It’s there because, this is an Outfit of the Day, that I think is really cute, but the pictures just don’t do it justice.
My favorite color is black, and in the fall and winter, I wear black almost everyday. I like this outfit, mainly because of the boots. I got these boots from Alloy, which honestly is a site for teens and young adults. I found Alloy a few years ago, because I was looking for some cute, trendy apparel for my daughter. When I found it online, I noticed they carried extended sizes and lengths. It was love at first sight.
Anywhoo, these boots are the first shoes I have ever ordered from Alloy and I was a little hesitant, because being a store geared towards the tweens, teens, and twenty-somethings, I new they had a tendency to run small in apparel. They kept sending catalogues and coupons, emailing special offers, until finally I could take it no more. I had to order these boots (Along with a really cute blouse. Welllllll………don’t judge me! It was the only way I could use the coupon.).
I got the boots in a size 10, my true shoe size, but I had the “run small” concern. They fit great, looked good on, and……….*wait for it*…………….are really comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfy they were. I wore these all day at work and all evening, the day the pictures were taken.
Now, back to the photos. I was not satisfied with the setting, lighting, my hair, nothing, but this was a rush job for me and my photographer (shout out to Gayle). It was just………..*sigh*…… one of those days. *shrug* Here they are, my OOTD pics for 11/09/10. Tell me what you think.
