pound the pavement

pound the pavement

pound the pavement

So this is something you'll rarely see... a work outfit. Yes, I do not usually bore you with my mundane corporate uniforms, but I thought this one warranted a photo or two (mainly for the shoes' sake).

A couple of you inquired if the Margiela shoes in my last post were comfortable. It's funny you ask, because B was trying to figure out how the hell I was going to walk in them when they first arrived. They're actually well-balanced and perfectly fine to walk around in, but probably not across town without a cab - does that make sense?

...and in case you're wondering, this Proenza pair is unexpectedly comfortable. The sole is very well-padded.

Target button-down
vintage belt
H&M skirt
vintage LV purse
Proenza Schouler shoes
Hermes bangle

Looking super stylish. It may be a work outfit but it still looks fab! I think I know what you mean about the shoes...comfortable, but still not made for walking miles in. I wonder if there is such a heel that exists.

HiFashion said...

Suzanne Zappia said...

badass shoes: loving them every step of the way.

and I agree with the other commenters that you need to post more work-wear outfits! office attire is definitely right up my style-alley.

you've almost got a slight safari-inspiration going here with the leather accessories, and pocket/button details.
