Fur and open-toed shoes?  Queen of Practicality, that's me.

death is not the end of this song

I found this adorable purse at thrift store a while ago and it's been staring at me forlornly from it's lonely little spot on what has become "the purse shelves."  Have you found that after you wear something once, it kind of "breaks the seal" and all kinds of possibilities immediately open up?  That seems to happen to me all the time.  I'm not sure why it takes me so long to wear cute things like this neglected little purse.

Forever 21 tee

Fur and open-toed? Whatever, you are always gorgeous! You can wear a sack and still look adorable. xoxo

Open-toed? The first thing I thought was
aren't your feet cold? heheheh...it's not really a big deal to me because I went barefoot few days ago even it was chilly outside. I love your fur jacket, E! i hope i can find a fur jacket in a thrift shop soon.

I love that you are wearing open-toed shoes with a fur coat. That's totally something I would do. By the way, that coat is stunning. The color is just divine!

cute! most ppl would have instinctively worn boots but i actually really like it w/ open toed heels!

Julia said...

Amazing purse. It has a old lady feel to it that pairs perfectly with the fur, and then I just love how you've kicked it up with the open toes. And THAT looks like real fur, too. Gorgeous. The cream color is beyond classy, E!

Leslie aka "MissusSmartyPants" said...

I'd totally wear your outfit! So cute. Open toe shoes and fur jacket...good combo girl :)

Yes, once you give something that was stuck in the back of your closet a chance...you'll suddenly find ways to wear it! Love that.

Elizabeth Marie said...

Being practical is overrated...I'd do the same damn thing.

I always do that-buy something, never wear/use it and then discover it again and wear it everyday for like 2 mos. Thats kind of how I am with boys. ha

Cozy and amazing outfit! I love that floral purse! I totally know what you mean about "breaking the deal" on wearing something! I recently did that with a pair of shoes...I would try them on with an outfit and then at the last minute change out of them before I left the apt. Then one day I wore them and I have worn them about 5 days a week since!!

FashionAddict said...

Adorable purse, and that vintage fur coat is TO DIE FOR!!! It looks great with the modern jeans. Wish I was in a non-snowy climate so I could wear hot shoes like that again :)

The Style Rider said...

I love the whole outfit so much! That coat looks so stunning on you. It looks like snow fell just on you to create the prefect coat!

Geez, girl, what's wrong with you:)))?!? It's winter time, it's freezing and I can't open the door to my house because of a snowdrift and you're wearing sandals!!! Is there any justice in the world? :)))

Christina said...

I love a nice fur coat to spruce things up. That purse totally seems like the kind of thing that could get neglected, but really opens up with the right outfit. It looks great here. I love your blog.

Etrapar said...

Talia said...

This bag looks like a little present ;) Very nice. I like the combination of fur and high heels sandals ;)

Maybe not the most pragmatic combo, but MAN, is it chic. Such great proportions with the coat and those slim jeans.

The cold never stopped me from rocking open toes in DC!

La Historiadora de Moda said...

That purse is just fabulous! I could never do white fur, as I would have spilled on it or slipped in a mud puddle within five minutes of putting it on.

Jessica said...

That little bag is so adorable!

Leproust Vintage said...

That is such a gorgeous faux fur jacket, and I do love the peep toes paired with it! :)

piglet said...

That bag is darling! I'm terrible with purses. I use them once then go back to my trusty gigantic bag.
Oh and fur and heels are the perfect combination!

The F Word Online said...

Erika said...

Your bag and jacket are literally sending me into cardiac arrest - so incredibly gorgeous! I've decided that there is no celebrity wardrobe which could compare to yours - I want to raid your closet!! :)

this purse is sooo cute. I know what you mean with buying things and not wearing them for a long time. That happens to me a lot. I buy things which I find cute and stylish but when I get home I'm not so sure how to combine them and then one day I try and never want to take it off again! ( which lasts for one week or so!! )
XOXO
ps. must haven been freezing with your sandals! :)

Lexi Colby said...

i always enjoy a visit to your blog :)
i'm such a fan of your style!
