Super Stripes Week: Day 1

Top - BCX, thrifted
Skirt - H&M, thrifted
Pumps - Attention Paris Fluevog
Headband - DIY project

Woo! Time to kick off Stripes Week! And what better way than having some Fluevogs show up in my mail box. I got a ton of great recs on curvy pumps. I settled on hunting down a pair of Attention Paris pumps, expecting to wait around on ebay for them. But it turned out endless had pumps on sale with a code, bringing these well below my self-imposed "Not going to spend $200 on black pumps". The best part? There's a hidden platform allowing my knees to handle that tall curvy heel. I'm forever amazed at the construction of Fluevogs.

The top I found while puttering around Goodwill trying to kill some time. It was a great match for the headband and belt I covered. And since this is a challenge, I decided to do some pattern mixing to kick things off. Be sure to check out all the participants of Super Stripes Week. Feel free to join in late - Just drop a comment on the main post letting me know.



Edited to add: I'm sorry for those of you with snow still on the ground, or even falling from the sky. I'm experiencing 80+F weather today!

  1. Love those shoes! I totally forgot about Super Stripes Week, and scheduled a post for early this morning (12:01AM!). I did remember this morning as I was putting together my outfit in my head, so I'm wearing stripes. I will do a double-outfit post tomorrow! I'll grab your button while I'm at it.

  8. Cute, cute, cute! Love the whole look, esp. the Fluevogs.
    I own only a few stripey things, so I busted out the socks last week, and posted them today. Does that count? Probably no...
