On a Pedestal

After being sick all week, I'm so glad to be wearing anything but pajamas! This look features an extra large white button-up worn as a dress, black biker shorts and a brand new online impulse buy - the shoes. What can I say? I was intoxicated by their massive faux wood platform. Sadly, I don't know if it was meant to be. They don't look quite as appealing in person, and the 5.5" stilettos make me teeter so much that they're impractical at best and a sprained ankle waiting to happen at worst. If they were wedges, it would have been a match made in heaven.
Dress: Thrifted, $3 // Shorts: Thrifted, $2 // Necklaces: Wildman, $13, gift // Shoes: gojane.com, $20

that dress is super cute! I love the wispiness of the fabric for the summer! And btw the shoes DO look super cute, though I understand the need to protect the safety of your ankles. Wish you had a side-on shot I would love to see the heels on those stilettos!

The shoes look great, even if you should probably put a closer picture on..! :)

They also do look slightly dangerous though... ;P
