You can get red zip soles for Louboutins. I have pair that I'm planning on having that done too, mainly because the toe looks worn and needs extra protection.

I have a new laptop and haven't figured out how to save a photo from a website yet, since it is my first Mac, but I think I have my first spring items picked out.

DKNY silk crepe and chiffon top. The most perfect blush pink and because it is layered I don't need a camisole with it. Also, has a slight black detail at the neckline. I've been looking for a nice blush pink top for years now. I tried it on with a jacket that I really love but haven't been wearing and it breathed new life into it! Net a porter already sold out of two sizes, so I went ahead an ordered at full price.

Second item is the Valentino cage rockstud flats. I ordered them, but they sent me the wrong shoe! The heeled version - not the flats.

My goal for 2013 is to limit my purchases to 1-2 a month except for replacements. There is nothing else that I want right now.

bought some black socks last night. recently had one of those wardrobe needs altering changes occur ... fell last week and broke/dislocated my thumb, leaving me with one good hand. this makes things with elastic waists, which i typicaly avoid like the plague, very desirable.

thinking of going shopping for some pants--but the shopping process is a little daunting. can't manage tights, which is almost all i have for the winter, thus the socks. i think i also took out my jimmy choos when this happened ... leather on both is scraped pretty badly. dropped them off today to see if they can be repaired. have a couple pairs of velour pants i bought when i was working from home, and a couple knit skirts, that are good. i can zip a zipper & button a button, but getting the zipper completely zipped is a challenge. tying a bow can be done, but not that easy. other closure ideas welcome any alternatives to the horror of the elastic waist? :p

Tata: Oh no!!! That sounds painful!! How long do you expect to have problems with it? Do you have dresses without zippers, things like knit dresses? That would sound like an alternativ... Any news about the sandals btw?

Salomelovesjohn: That sounds like two awesome items! Any pics of the blouse by now? Or a link? I would love to see it. And what color have the Valentino shoes? Did you get them by now? The cage shoes are such a classic and yet with a trendy look, excellent choice!

Color scheme: I think I'm improving in terms of my color scheme. I plan to have mustard and golden yellow tones during all seasons. In fall / winter I want to pair them more with burgundy, terra and brown. And in spring / summer more with turquoise, teal and white. Tata, since you have the link to my pinterest board, would you maybe have a look to see what you think of my "fashion dreams"? Do you think that could work? If anyone else wants to have a look, just pm me :p

Limiting my purchases: Honestly, I have a hard time focusing right now. I see soooooo many things I want. I really have to try hard not to order five pieces right away I remember I felt similar last year in January. The combination of winter sale, start of my beloved spring/summer season and having some Xmas money on my account is quite dangerous... I'll really try and wait till February now though. Argh.

Tata, Hope you feel better soon! Ouch. And yes, it feels good not to really be craving anything.

redandnavy, I will have to check out your board. I think I have the link. Those colors sound very classic, IMO. I'm always looking for taupe and dusty rose colored items for spring. Maybe even a bag in that color this year.

Re. the cage flats. No exchange yet, I still need to contact customer service. They are sold out so I'm worried this is going to take awhile. And thank you! I think they will be a great purchase. Very pricey, but since I'm planning on only 2-3 shoe purchases this year I decided to splurge.

Here is the DKNY top & a Prabal Gurung top that I bought on sale in December. I don't usually wear silk tops so this is new for me.

not sure yet on timeframe ... i'm sooo excited because i finally got a specialist appt today (work injury--why taking so long), so i'll find something out on wed i hope. considering another pair of flats as i can't really wear tie shoes right now--just have 1 pr of flats left for cold weather & they have polka dots.

i mean the zipper on a pr of jeans i can't really get all the way up if the zipper is on the left would never attempt a back zipper now, but i like the idea of a knit dress. right now the sleeve has to be stretchy to fit over splint--don't know what the cast will look like. Sandals--no change. but she said she would ask manager to allow me to return for refund.

looks like you have some good accessories picked out! oprah is wearing the scalloped chloe ballets in her magazine this month--like those, & pretty good price too.

found out today that recovery time will be 11-15 weeks from now (surgery to insert pins next week), so the rest of winter into spring. planning to buy another pair of ballets with elastic. will work on this over the weekend. prolly also need more hosiery that aren't tights. the 2 prs of sox have worked out well. will see how it goes on the clothing end ... need to experiment a bit after i get some more versatile shoes. probably they need to be basic black ... hopefully i can find some with non-boring detail.

^Oooh, ta-ta, I feel for you. Having gone through a similar experience recently, I definitely understand the importance of a functional wardrobe in times like these.

^ thx, r&n. well ... i've looked back at several shops, and i'm wondering if the teal wasn't a trick of my other laptop's monitor, and what i really saw was turquoise or blue. it comes in a bunch of different colors, but now all i can find is these. neiman's has both, and barney's has what looks to be a darker blue??

Yikes! Tata! Almost 3 months!? =/
SLJ Nice tops.
R&N I love the idea of having color schemes.
A few updates from me. My favorite hat. A pendleton cowboy hat; flew off my head about a month ago. It was tragic. It anchors a lot of my outfits that I would consider a little more bold. So I had to replace that. I wore it so much over the year I had it that it sort of needed replacing anyway.
A former manager of mines is considering me as a candidate for a job at Steven Alan. I have not been working for anyone but myself since October so I had to make a trip to the cleaners. I had a lot of clothes that needed work done to them and if I got this job those were the clothes I would need to be wearing. It also made me realize how much I miss dressing up for work. I feel like I had been waiting for a job to drop in my lap and now I want to be a little more active about it.
