Shoe crush: Oxford ankle booties

 Finally got a pair. Finally got around to taking some action besides just drooling over them. I ordered a pair of black lace up wedge ankle booties, and they came, and I feel on top of the world.
 I'm not going to take away from the suspense from providing endless detailing about them. I'll just show you. They are gorgeous, I'll just say that. Have a look at these amazing booties.

New series: Colored choice 1: Deep teal

 The reason for this creation of a new series is twofold. One, I've seen this done on other blogsm and what better place to get inspiration for my blog than from other amazing blogs? Also, it's an easy way to provide content for those busy, over-the-top days that have been coming my way frequently. And no, it's not sloppy or lazy, it's my way of bringing something to the table that's easy to blog about yet new and different.
 Now, onto a description of this new series. It's called "Colored choice" because it's a selection of different garments (the "choice" part) that all have, more or less, the same color (the "colored" part). And I plan to include one accent (because you know I love accents) clothing item of my choice that will go nicely with one of the other items displayed. It's hard to explain. So I'll just show you what I mean.
 Look out for the two different-colored items side by side and see their contrast. Juxtaposition is a great word for it. Because you know I like juxtaposition.
 Teal is my color for this post because... just because I like teal. And for the first time doing this, I figured sticking to my favorite color would be safest for now.

Polyvore recently 4

 I'm doing another Polyvore recently this week because I've been really inspired by Polyvore. Like always. But more this time. So many items, sets, and people coming together to make it a really good place to be on the Internet. And that's one of the reasons I love fashion. Not only is it an artistically positive world, but it gives so many opportunities to create, share, and inspire between like-minded people. And that is achieved in few other areas of life.
 So once again, I stress this. If you don't currently have a Polyvore account, it would really be in your best interest to get one. You don't have to create "competitively" and have the most followers (I certainly don't); you can use it as an outlet. A place for your creativity to be artfully dumped, for lack of a better word. And I've met so many cool people on Polyvore. What's the worst that could happen? I encourage all, men and women and boys and girls, to give it a go.

Top Five Faves: D'orsay flats

 Yes, I was inactive the past two months or so. Yes, without explanation. And I'm sorry for that. I was frustrated and stressed and out of content ideas, so I thought that it would be best to take some time off of Fashion teal and refocus. I want great content ideas, and they just weren't coming to me. Hopefully this break I took will be a great way to get my "mind juices" running.
 And I also made a decision. No more long, rambling posts about outfits. I think part of the reason I felt so uninspired is because I was afraid that blogging would take hours because I had to write a paragraph for each post. So, I came back to the world of blogging inspired. Fashion isn't about words necessarily. It's about the outfits that make us speechless. I'll say what I have to say and move on. No droning. If there are more things to say at times, sure, I'll say them. But not each time.
 With that being said, thanks to everyone who's still here. I apologize again. Now, let's get to it.
 I haven't done Top 5 Faves in a while, so I thought that it was the right time to do it. This time it's focused on d'orsay flats because I've always had a craving for them. You already know that I have a pair of black ones that I can't live without. I wear them all the time, and they're gorgeous, simply put.
 So, here we go.
