It’s similar to a Michael Kors bag that I own and haven’t used in a couple of years. Hmmmmm…I guess I’d better drag that out of the closet this spring. Well, actually… I already did…so I could take this picture.

Now, I certainly couldn’t wear that dress (not anymore, anyway. And well, to be truthful, probably not ever!) but I think I own those shoes…almost.
|My Stuart Weizmann’s from 2011|
I love a pointy-toed, low-heeled shoe! They look great with pants and skirts… and I love these patent, black and grey ones of mine with my leather pants and in the spring with cropped pants.
This summer I might even wear these cream Stuart Weitzman sling-backs again.
They are from quite a few years ago, at least five. I haven’t worn them for several years, but I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of them. I love them because they are so feminine and comfortable. And have a kitten heel, which I am seeing all over the place this season.

In fact, there are a ton of looks for spring that I could manage with a remix of items from my own closet. That way I’ll get more mileage out of items I already own and save some money.
So I go virtual shopping, again.
I love “window shopping” on Netaporter.com. They always style their clothes into such cool outfits. It’s a good place to go for ideas. I’ll search the site for a skirt, a pair of pants or a sweater that is similar to one I own, and then see how they style it. And how I might update what I already own.
My rust and pink, floral skirt (knee length with big, box pleats and a print that is a bit like a watercolour painting) and which looks kind of like this…

Or I could wear my tan, pencil skirt with a casual sweater and flat sandals to make it look less business-like, kind of like this…
