Adrien: Occasionally, you win.

Online shopping can be risky but sometimes I find a bargain I deem worthy of risk. (And in this case, with free shipping/returns, not really that risky.) I bought the shoes I talked about in this entry without ever having tried on a pair of Coclico shoes, so I really had no idea if they'd work for me. Also, the online photos made them seem like they could go either way - there's a thin line between quirky and dowdy. Very thin. Anyway, I'm delighted to report that they arrived and they're GREAT. What hasn't been great is the weather, so the lighting in these photos don't really do them full justice:

violet trim!

dress: Merona Crossover (striped version here) (fall-friendly similar)
bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (inexpensive similar) (similar)
bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar)
belt: Target (similar)
necklace: Banana Republic (similar)


  1. Oh I love those shoes! I agree. It is a thin line. I have a couple of pairs of shoes that I think landed on the dowdy side, sorry to say.
