Wardrobe upgrade part 4

Okay so this is not the brown slouchy bag that I promised. Genuinely I could not find a single one that I liked. As soon as I do find out I'll be sure to post about it.

Among many other items I am in major need of a stylish black flat shoe. I love flat shoes as an alternative to the tennis shoe. Don't get me wrong the tennis shoe has its place. But the cute flat shoe can Punch up an outfit. It can make jeans and a polo shirt acceptable in the office on Fridays. At least in my office. I have gold flats and silver flats but I am missing that go to pair of black flats.

I love the snake print. Just a little added interest but still dark and very versatile. These are on Zappos.

Zappos snapped the picture of these shoes at a very odd angle for the shoe. Check out the other views on the website. Totally adorable.

Technically these are not black but there were too cute to not mention. They are not the most affordable option. These are from J. Crew and the good thing about J. Crew is that they have sales regularly.

I am not sure what to think of pointed tow flats. I am more of a round toe girl. But I could be persuaded to make an exception for these from Banana Republic.

Now for the gold. This has been harder for me than the silver post. I have put off buying a good gold necklace because I thought it would be out of my price range. The more I research and find out what I am drawn to I have noticed that gold can be affordable.

This is from an Etsy seller by the name of michellechangjewelry. I love how simple this is and that it can be customized with your initials.

I love how this is a spin on the standard single pearl pendant. I think this would get a lot of use.
This is from Bluenile.

This is from another Etsy seller, ANORIGINALJEWELRY.

Next....the slouchy brown leather bag.

We chimed in a new year, why not start a new wardrobe or at lease upgrade your old one.

I am in the market for all kinds of new additions to my hum drum daily wear. Since one of my resolutions is to lose 20 pounds I am going to hold off on looking for cloths. Accessories always fit no matter what the scale says. Today I am in the mood for a simple silver necklace that I can wear with just about anything. I would like it to be unique but not weird. I have a few in mind.

This one is from Khristinn's shop on Etsy.

This is from James Avery. I love this jeweler. The craftsmanship insures that this is a piece you will have for the rest of your life.

No search for silver would be complete without a stop at Tiffany's. This is the famous Elsa Peretti Bean Pendant.

Decisions decisions.....

In Wardrobe Update part 2 I will explore the options for a gold necklace.
