Crayola

I'm pretty sure you can tell from my blog that my eyes are drawn to pieces with any type of beautiful detailing, but lately I've been really into patterns... the bolder, the better!
This silk jacket is vintage Saks Fifth Avenue, I love the colors and the silhouette!
Wearing a Topshop bustle skirt, Givenchy heels, Super sunglasses, vintage jewelry, and nude python Coach clutch.

Your blazer totally reminds me of an MIA music video though I know it predates her. Digging the heels.

Those shoes are to die for. I am kind of sloooowly getting over the whole "every shoe by every designer must be platform" thing. Whatever happened to gorgeous, DAINTY stilettoes!?!? Those shoes are so sexy, feminine, muy elegante.....no need for that chunky ostentatious look-at-me platform....all class!

Are they new or old?
