At First Glance

I called this post At First Glance because at first glance I feel like I could be perceived as buttoned up and proper, but then you see the tangled mess of a necklace, the holes and rips in my old jeans, my chipped nail polish, and (utterly fabulous) python print wedges, and then you change your mind.

Continuing my series of posts in which I partnered up with Kmart to create some of my own styled looks from their spring collection, this peach colored sweater cinches at the waist which is really flattering. I’m also collaborating with Payless shoes (see previous posts here & here) and these wedges are to die for: comfy, easy to put on, easy to walk in, and something fierce. [houston] even commented on how cool my shoes were. They’re Christian Siriano for Payless and an easy way to get your hands on his design for a fraction of the price.

    Love your shoes. I still can't believe the things you have from Kmart. They have really stepped up their game!

    I have been loving kmart lately. You look great, and casual chic. I have a dress from Kmart that looks like something from modcloth. It's my favorite dress right now, and it was an incredible deal.

    I absolutely LOVE your outfit! A co-worker and I were talking about how we feel like we don't look cute in jeans on days-off from work since we HAVE to dress up and play the cute role! Well done!

    Drinking my coffee and sighing over those shoes all at the same time – morning bliss!
    Love your new lay out by the way – minimal chic! x

    Adorable! I love the color of the sweater and great necklace!

    I love how you added an edge to this sweet look with those amazing shoes and ripped up jeans!

    I have always been a fan of "cute" styles from Payless. Especially boots. Why? They are not leather–so I get Michigan cruddy yucky winter salt and snow all over them, wipe them off, and viola–they look new again. My Payless boots in this post are 5 years old:

    I agree with HB, these shoes are really cute! Look very nice with your jeans.

    Super cute Kmart shirt! And I couldn't tell what the shoes looked like in the first few pictures, but then I saw the closeup and thought "I've been looking for sandals just like those!!" with the front also having a little height for us shorties… πŸ™‚

    Okay, I'm loving how Payless and Kmart are really stepping it up. I think they're taking a few hints from Target, getting designers to design for them. Love the outfit!

    Cannot believe these are Payless! The sandals are so cute for spring.

    Seriously? Kmart? That top is just lovely! Looks like I need to hit up the mart!

    Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Vanessa H was wearing when I ran into her last week and find out what her go-to fash item is. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.

    And don't forget to follow on Twitter for all the latest celebrity fashion news, from an LA stylist.

    I'm a new reader and follower, hi! I love that top and never would've guessed it was from Kmart. We have a Kmart down the street, but it's pretty ghetto. That top is so cute, though.

  17. 03.25.2011 / 3:39 pm

    I can't believe that's a Kmart shirt! We need some sun here in Toronto, I'm getting sick of the snow and super jealous seeing these pictures in short sleeves.
    Cute black toes!
