Jesus saves, I spend

A year ago I flipped through an issue of Lucky Magazine and spotted an adorable outfit inspired by the singer/songwriter St. Vincent. I fell in love with the look, and especially the cute cutout oxfords - so much that I wanted to go and buy them that instant.
They weren't available at the time, and after months of waiting, finally appeared in black (no brown ever existed). So I got them in December, but I hadn't forgotten about this outfit. At long last... does it live up to my expectations and a year of anticipation?

Those are so cute! I scored a great pair of oxfords at Goodwill this afternoon but I love the little cut out details on yours.
And I love the bird necklace that you're wearing as well.

Cutout oxfords are awesome, I've been eyeing a canvas pair but I doubt I'll get them (Stuart Weitzman, $$$$... sigh). I think this outfit came out great and I'm glad you finally got to wear it!

Vanessa said...

I'm impressed that you 1. kept the Lucky inspiration sheet for that long 2. recreated the look nearly a year later and 3. captured it so perfectly!

Lovely outfit! I don't know what St Vincent isn't more famous (here in the UK, at least) because she's an amazing singer.

you seriously copied it perfectly. except I hate the word "copied" more like you made your own rendition. yeah I like that better. but really, you look fantastic.
