Wishlist for Heidi S., March, 2014
Urban, Edgy, Sophisticated & Professional
Hello Heidi! Per your request, this month I focused on sassy black shoes that were either a mule or had an ankle strap and a chunky heel. Plus, tops that can be paired with leggings were also on the list. Let me know how it goes. As always, so many options that you'd look incredible in. Aren't you inspiring?!

You could seriously throw this puppy on with the sassy black shoes you just requested. It's got maximum coverage and is still racy. Plus it shows off your tiny waist. The sizes go quickly on this site, so I didn't want to delay sending it over. You could also use it as a skirt by layering a pullover on top.
Sassy black shoes you say? Ankle strap with chunky heel were your words? Well, we are totally on the same page. I JUST bought these for myself and have been testing them out running around town. The soles are reminiscent of a pair of Docs, bouncing soles. Plus, the hardware gives them an additional edge. They are show stoppers, while still being functional, made in Spain and not available at Nordstrom.
I noticed that you liked them on Instagram, so that's a good sign. Solestruck is a Portland company, also a + for you. They run a little big and only come in whole sizes. A 7 should work, but you can always measure your foot if you are concerned. Also returns are easy. Finally, they offer two tone options. Those are all the rage right now, if you are interested.
I couldn't help it. I'm including these. Here's why: per your request, they are black mules and I'd say they are indeed sassy. They are clearly meant for summer. I love the interesting detail of the sole while still keeping them sleek and simple. Plus, they go with everything. And, since you are rocking the leggings, these would be a perfect compliment to those so I can see you getting a great deal of use out of them. They are TopShop but not available currently at Nordstrom. Shoes from the UK. That's good stuff.
Sophisticated, edgy, polished and functional. Bring the bootie into spring with an open toe mule. The other options are more casual, so if you'd like something dressy, I wanted to make sure you had these that also offer a little sex appeal.
The photos show that this one hangs longer, but I'm hesitant to say it would work with leggings. However, it's so YOU I couldn't resist including it. Also available in black, I could see this as a go-to.
A blend of silk, cotton and cashmere, this lightweight sweater transitions nicely into spring. I like it with a colored tank or cami underneath that is revealed in the back. I realize going braless isn't an option:) Long enough to be paired with leggings, it would also be a great canvas for a blazer and statement jewelry.
I know. I love leather jackets on you because you already own them. But, this one is different, I LOVE the cowl neck for you. It makes it feel like you can wear it all day long- inside or out. Plus, when you detach the top, it is a crazy flattering and current waterfall jacket. Again, great for your shape creating lines to elongate your frame. Plus, you could rock this with a longer top, leggings and boots.
I love this in either color for you. The muscle tee style adds a little alternative action while the sheer keeps things sexy but still effortless. You could pair it with leggings, jeans or skirts. It dresses up or down pretty easily and the color options play well with everything else in your closet. Wear it now with a blazer, cardigan or leather jacket on top. Take it into spring with ankle length pants or one of your super cute jersey skirts and sandals. It's a little on the high end price-wise because it is Vince. Might be worth saving in your Nordstrom cart until it goes on sale. After all, you get an alert!
Alternatively, there's this little beauty. More affordable, also Vince, and offers just as many options for mixing and matching. I like the body con options for you, but these sheer shirts are also great and totally in line with your personal style. It's a little longer to accommodate leggings, as well. As shirt lengths are shortening, it is going to be more challenging to rock the leggings so that they are really making you look your best. But, it can be done! I also like a fitted v-neck longer t-shirt on you with leather leggings to keep it edgy and effortless. Add one of your long cardigans and you are good to go.
Also, if you decide to purchase any of the items listed above, please start with the link on this page:) I'm excited to create these for you monthly and want to ensure they are always inspiring and useful. I hope that your personal style plan is a helpful reference as you build a wardrobe that is reflective of your style: sophisticated, edgy, urban and professional.
