Do you guys remember Corey Hart? Have I just dated myself like whoa? No need to answer that. Suffice it to say, Mr. Hart would have been well equipped to deal with this outfit — any time of day — despite it being quite, um, retina searing. It looked really nice in real life, I promise. The colour of this blazer is impossible to photograph, but it leans slightly more orange-red than coral, and it does match rather nicely with this skirt.
Speaking of which, this skirt is so, so good. Definitely worth hunting down on eBay if you are so inclined. Just wait for a good deal — they come up regularly (especially if you’re in the US and don’t have to deal with an abysmal exchange rate). I paid about $40 CDN for mine, shipping included, and it’s totally worth that money.
Oh, and the shoes. I found this pair of *cough* Ivanka Trump *cough* gold pumps at Winners for $40 as well, and have been wearing them — to work! — non-stop lately. (Ok, not non-stop. More like 3 times in 2 weeks, but still — 30% of the time ain’t bad.) Turns out, gold substitutes for pretty much anything in a pinch. For example: no navy shoes? No problem! Gold’s got you (or, in this case, me) covered. Yay.
