Note to Self

Ugly shoes = Ugly dress. Seriously, your shoes can ruin the whole look of your outfit. I came across this lovely while browsing the Couture In The City blog. This dress was a winner from Project Runway, Rami Kashou. The shoes and the dress are both quite nice on their own, however, together the ensemble is a disaster. The chunky front strap and heel distract your attention away from the beautiful draping and also make the model look a bit planted. Maybe the stylist was going for the Grecian sandal look. I would have paired this goddess dress with a sleeker heel or at least one with a smaller strap. And, I would rock those heels with a mini. But then again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Speaking of beauty - our weekly sweepstakes drawing is tomorrow for that fabulous red dress. Good luck to everyone (we are going to give away two this week!) and there is still time to comment and win!

Couldn't agree more about the shoes. I would have done a silver or bronze strappy shoe with a delicate heel. Those shoes just make the whole ensemble seem bottom heavy.

Thanks for dropping by smiler - we are in total agreement!

Sassy - Wish I would have thought of that - hooves! You are so right.

Thank you so very much for the thoughtful comment you left about my son leaving for Iraq again. It is literally killing me to know he has to go back for 15 more months.

Wishing you and yours a safe and bountiful Thanksgiving holiday!

Love the shoes .. but not with the dress, whoa!

I couldn't agree more either. I think both items are too "clunky" to go together and neither seem to fit just so. I'm really not sure what I'd pair the shoes with....to be honest, probably a pair of jeans or slacks so that the strap wasn't seen in the first place, lol....but the dress definitely needs something slimmer/more stream-lined!

This is very unfortunate. The shoes are so bad.
