wearing: black velvet and Jeffrey Campbell Litas

The first time I saw a style blogger rocking a pair of Litas I didn't care for the appearance of the shoes at all. It looked like the girl was trip-trapping about on hooves! But then I saw them again and for some reason it was like Cupid emerged from behind two clouds and shot the hell out of me. I fell in love. It was almost as if the boots were so ugly that they were pretty. So, as a girl who can't just drop incredible amounts of cash on a pair of shoes (or anything, for that matter), I admired them from afar. Every so often I searched for them on eBay and was astounded that the prices that were still way out of my range. But then a few weeks ago it seemed as if the eBay fairies were smiling down upon me. I found them for a mere $65.99 (which is still high for me, but was the lowest that I'd ever seen the Litas by far!)! Plus I was able to buy them immediately instead of bidding on them, which never seems to go well for me anyways. They arrived at my door a few days later. You guys. These are the most amazing shoes I've ever owned. They are BEAUTIFUL. I am totally hooked on Jeffrey Campbell now. (I even scored a pair of O-Wildes on eBay a week later for only $24.99!! Eeep!) And the best part is that they were pre-owned so they already have scuffs and scratches on them and I won't have to be devastated when I accidentally bang them up a bit, which I am definitely wont to do.

Today was the most perfect day, weather wise. It was about sixty degrees with a sweet cool breeze. If every day could be like that I'd never ever complain about the weather! I decided on all black, all velvet, big hat, and big shoes. I guess none of that is really out of the ordinary for me, haha. I found this gorgeous Marc Jacobs blazer at a thrift store for around $5 and I am in love with all the details! The shoulders, the buttons, the cut, and even the sweet bow in the back are all just excellent. And then there's the fact that it's black and it's velvet, I should really just never take it off. I love how it looks with this long velvet dress. So delightfully witchy.

Hahaha, oh yes, the Lita effect. Many people initially hate them, but they grew on me too. I have three pairs (2 of which are knockoffs, but hey, they look just like the actual brand, so I'm not complaining too much).
Love these ones you're rocking with your witchy ensemble. You look amazing! :)
