Something New... Something New...

Have I mentioned how much I truly LOVE Ann Taylor LOFT?

Of course I have.

Hee Hee

Actually, you might even describe me as a bit obsessed.  I cannot help myself.  Their clothes are just soooo my personal style.  I get their e-mail solicitations daily and I cannot help but go look.

Is there ever anything new on the website?


Does it matter that I know that?

Not at all.

Is anyone else that obsessed with a specific retailer?

Anyway... today's ensemble...

What do you think of the color of this skirt?

Ann Taylor calls it Teal Night.  I prefer to think of it simply as gorgeous.  LOVE the color, whatever you want to call it.

I cannot tell you how much I like this skirt.  I do not have the words.

The only thing that is somewhat troubling... teal is not quite as flexible as black or white... my fail safe "colors."

Fortunately, all of my black and white tops will go well with it.

Hee Hee 

It is still available here if you like what you see?

Speaking of black and white...

I went with my striped blouse from Casual Corner today.

Do they "work" together?

This is a great blouse.  I have had it for years.  

I wear it quite often.  I just think it is quite sharp.  How about you?

One of my favorite ensembles is pairing this blouse with my black leather skirt.  I wear that combination at least once each Fall/Winter... probably more often than that.

To finish things off I finally got a chance to wear my new black patent leather high heels.

How gorgeous are these shoes?

I found these babies at Nordstrom Rack while out shopping with my dear friend Cindy a few days ago.

You may remember that her wonderful husband Rob gave her a "day off" to spend some time with me?

Franco Sarto high heels for $44.97!!!  I just HAD to have them.  Besides, how many different outfits go well with black heels?

Sometimes I justify needless purchases far too easily.

Hee Hee

And the finished look...

Just another standard ensemble for a member of both the Community of Girls Who Love Skirts and the Society of High Heel Lovers.

What do you think?

Well, lunchtime is over.  Gotta go!

Looking forward to reading your thoughts.  Your comments always make my day.  Yea... I really am that shallow.

Hee Hee

Have a Wonderful Day!!!

  4. I love Franco Sarto heels--they are so comfy!

  5. I don't think the shirt is too sharp at all with the skirt! I think they go perfectly! The teal of the skirt is gorgeous, understated elegance, and the stripes just add more character!

    Needless?! Those heels for $45 is NOT needless! In fact it was very much needed! Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog as well :)

  6. great post!

  7. I love ann taylor loft as well. The Petite section is azmaing! i find a lot of stuff in that store that would fit me perfectly. I purchase a lot of my work clothes there as well. i love that teal pencil skirt. I know you will get a lot of compliments for this outfit. its really cute!

  8. Love the teal skirt! I have a similar one from Forever 21 and I get so much wear out of it. It's great for summer and winter, and you really can't get much better than that.
    And I love Ann Taylor as well. They really have the best work clothes and the cuts fit me so well. I can definitely understand why you like it so much :)
