I’ve worn this dress dozens of times but on this particular afternoon I put it on for a little local photo shoot. Here’s how I styled it:

Dress from Anthropologie, Tarina Tarantino heart necklace, cardigan from Rodarte for Target, grey knee highs and Vivienne Westwood for Melissa plastic dreams pink shoes.

Wearing: little purple dress found at Red Light in Portland, black Foot Traffic tights from Sock Dreams, grey knee highs, Vivienne Westwood for Melissa pink shoes, my favorite charm necklace, red Prairie Underground coat and J.Crew kids headband. In my hand is my heart shaped Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet.

Vintage showgirl outfit from Flutter, Black Milk galaxy tights, same shoes as above!

I had my friend, Ann shorten this little cute dress from Flutter to make it a mini, I love it! Wearing it with Black Milk wet look pantyhose, same shoes- again! Cardigan from Target and the star in my hair is from Giant Dwarf on Etsy!

I love Sock Dreams and was compelled to head out to their brick and mortar store last Saturday. And on Sunday I wore these beautiful new tights. Here are my photos:

When I first saw these shoes I fell in love. They are so fitting for me. They are whimsical art for your feet by the incomparable Vivienne Westwood. Westwood teamed up with Melissa Plastic Dreams shoes and I own a few pairs of there conjoined artful efforts. Thank you to my husband who had these sent to me from New York in time for my birthday last Friday. Love these shoes!

Minimalist footwear for running is exploding on the internet- or have I just found it? NPR, Reuters, Harvard and bloggers are all talking about "barefoot" running. Am I just catching up or are they? Funny. Either way, my calves are sore, I'm running faster and my toes are happier! I'm 2 1/2 weeks in and haven't put on my New Balance running shoes (which I always ran in as a hard and heavy heel striker) and I see no reason to wear them. Now on to clothes!

This is a fun little outfit I wore last Easter:

I love writing about clothes and I'm trying to blog more. I wrote the post below late last night to post this morning. Then I wake to read Haiti has gone through another earthquake, an after shock measuring 6.1. My heart is breaking for Haiti. I am so very sorry. I want them all to be safe and well. Blessings to Haiti and all who are working so hard to help them heal.

In September 2009 I was so excited to go to NYFW (New York Fashion Week)! And this is the lovely vintage dress I wore that I had bought over a year before at the Xtabay in Portland. A beautiful store! A memorable day…
