So I have been kind of in love with the J Crew Juliet heels, specifically the Peacock color. Oh such a pretty teal blue. Alas, the Peacock Juliet’s have eluded me all year…until now.
As I was walking by Nine West on Saturday a flash of teal caught my eye. I walked in and there they were. Same color, well Medium Blue, and same wood heel, well tapered not blocked, but so similar to not at least try on.
Nine West Ambitious – $69
I took a size 7 as the 6 1/2 was a smidge tight in the width. I’m so excited to finally have this color and at a great price. Online there are 8 different colors to choose from but this one was the best IMO.
Have a great day!
Husband and I usually celebrate holidays early – Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. It’s a lot easier to get a table at our favorite restaurants to go a few days before the “big day”. So tonight I was taken to Maggiano’s for Mother’s Day dinner.
I was planning on wearing my Impressionist pencil skirt and new “Charms and Kitsch” tee but I did a little shopping today after I created my Polyvore and pick up the Arribada Current Dress by Moulinette Soeurs from Anthropologie. It was on sale for $69.95 in-store ($99.95 on the website). I tried a 6 and it was too loose on top so I asked for the 4. Still slightly loose but there was no way I could size down to a 2. I love the cut, style, length, PRINT! I didn’t even notice the sea turtles on it until I tried on the 4! I grabbed it because of the green color.
So here it is. (Sorry for the non-expression. I’m not mad. And I need a haircut!)
Necklace: J Crew Salon Necklace
Shoes: Nine West
Look at the turtles!
It has pockets! I pinned the neckline. I think I can have it taken up at the shoulder seams to fit a little better. Also, my shoes are old. I didn’t realize I have no cute black sandals. I originally envisioned flat sandals with this dress but I had none. I pulled these from my ebay pile. I think I need some black slingback sandals with a kitten heel for this dress.
I’ll have a post tomorrow with my other Anthro sale buys and a new J Crew mini skirt (too cute!).
Here’s my OOTD for today. It’s different from my original Polyvore I created for today because the rain stopped and the sun came out, even though it’s still cold…and windy.
Sweater: J Crew Dolce Shawl Popover in Light Pewter

I forgot how much I like these boots and I couldn’t wait to wear these Denim Minnies!
