OOTY: a hint, and a score.

Sorry about the lack of fun posts lately! Inspiration seems to be waning this week. Ya'll were so helpful on the shoe decision, and I think I've also made the purse decision too, so thanks! But I know that's not all that fun for you... just bare with me. My inspiration will find its way back soon. I think it's related to this cold thing I have goin' on. It was bad on Monday, then got better, but now I have this gross snotty/coughy thing going on that's just not cuttin' it in my books. Oh well... the show must go on.

Yesterday, if you follow my Twitter feed, you may have heard I went on the typical wild-goose chase for the Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges. (Quite frankly, I'm getting sick of this, Targhetto! Just produce more than you usually do 'cuz you know they'll get bought! I'm done with the whole "sold out" crap!) After searching a few stores and calling a million, I walked into the North Irving Target (for any of you DFW'ers) and got there juuuuuust as the lady was opening the shipment boxes! I waited in fear as she opened them, knowing there were only one or two styles that came early.... and lo and behold, there were the brown wedges! Yippee! Now, I have been debating between the brown and black, especially seeing how cute the black ones were on Wendy of Nitrolicious. But the decision was made for me, and that's ok. They're really pretty in person, and definitely very comfy. I found them to run slightly big. Not by much-- I'm normally between an 8 and 8.5 and typically just have to size up, but I definitely had to size down on these. That's also because the ankle strap was way larger on the 8.5 and I have teeny tiny ankles. They're still a little big on the 8s, but not noticeable enough. Anyway, here's my OOTY (what I wore to play Wits and Wagers and watch the BoSox on TV at a friend's house last night):

(Not many pics today-- my time was short and my lighting was really, really bad.)

Shirt: UO shoulder detail silk top
Jeans: AE super skinnies
Necklaces: Nordstrom BP, and a mystery designer...
Belt: F21
Shoes: Cynthia Vincent for Target gladiator wedges in Cognac

I'm being a little sneaky here, did ya see? See the "love" necklace in my photos? It's courtesy a certain Etsy designer who will be hosting a giveaway on my blog on MONDAY! I know I promised this week; there were some technical difficulties with getting it on time, but the item is here and ready to be given to a lovely who deserves it. :) Can't wait, and stay tuned! 

And have a faboo Saturday. I'm working on that inspiration building, don't you worry...


  1. I'm so happy you got your shoes! I've been eyeing that UO top. I haven't seen it in my stores. Have you seen the blue one? If so, is it a really nice Prussian blue like it is online or just drab? I really like the pink/blush one on you, and that's the color I initially wanted, but out the last 6 things I purchased, 5 were nude/blush.

    Sypre cute and SUper Jealous! I Heart my Cynthia Vincents and really want to score a couple of the Target version to compare (and rock!) but mine haven't gotten them yet. I too, was Target last night. I love your outfit today!

  4. Wow, I LOVE those shoes. They are awesome, and now I'm totally drooling over that top because it looks so cute on you and because it's my favorite color blush!

  5. Fab shoes! I saw them at my local Target today and wanted them something bad, but they only had a few pairs out and they were all too small for me. Stupid size 9 feet! Oh well, they were on a random end cap so my guess is they haven't hit in full force at my store yet so hopefully I'll get lucky later. I was however able to grab some super cute Miss Trish sandals that I went searching for! Yay for Target shoe payoffs!

  6. I am so upset that my Target isn't carrying this line yet. I asked about it and I think the sales lady thought I was speaking Latin. No light came to her face to have a clue what I was talking about. I may be road tripping to another. They are too cute.

  7. Love them! That cognac color is fab! And I agree, c'mon Target, get with it and quit trying to be so exclusive! You're target after all ;)

  8. Just because she didn't know doesn't mean much. A lot of times they
    have no idea even if they are getting it in! Check on Sunday, def.

  9. I went to FIVE targets today and finally got the 6.5. I also got a pair of the flat ones in yellow. I'm loving both pairs; I'm so glad I first saw you mention them!!

  10. keep buying AE jeansss ;)

  11. Those shoes are totally HOT!

  12. One of my less online shopping/crazy girlfriends is out of town this weekend and enlisted my help in tracking down a pair of these for her this weekend. I'm debating between staying up really late and trying to get them online or driving to the store in foolish hopes that my local store will have actually put them out on time. Ugh.

  13. i may just have to go and check these out...and I hope they have them in black too! :)

  14. I got the same ones and am in Love. <3

  15. I LOVE that you wore this outfit to play Wits & Wagers! :-) I just wish that the picture had my game in it.
