Did your shopping improve with practice? What do you do to increase the odds of finding something good?
I've always wanted sandals for Summer but never found any that work with my feet. Yesterday, at Nordstrom Rack (one of the few places that carry size 12), I saw a cute pair from Franco Sarto ($49). On my feet, they look better than usual. They're very comfortable (wedges feel so good) and I plan to wear them a lot.
Also, last Saturday I bought a nice top at my favorite tween boutique. The design of the top is quite unusual and neon trim is exciting. I don't think I've ever seen anyone wear vertical trim like this. It was on sale for $15.
To complete an outfit, I picked up a skirt on sale at Marshall's for $10 which adds to the top without distracting from it. Here is the total ensemble. Thoughts?
