Design a Day - Day 5 (Silver Moire)

Photobucket
The weather in Houston was perfect today at a comfortable 75 degrees and sunny. Robert and I took the kids into the city and had lunch al fresco at a little cafe. Afterward, Robert was patient enough to let me swing by a fabric store before we left for home. I had about five minutes to take a photo before the sun set. It's a general rule that you need good light for good photos, so I am sorry I didn't get more/better photos of today's shoes. They are very similar to the Piper shoes, but in a beautiful moiré silver with little fleur de lis. They have soft and sheer slate-colored torn satin bows and a cluster of sequins at the center. They are called Levia; I have one pair, available here. I love the idea of these little flats with distressed skinny jeans {oh, yes, they make them for toddlers--Mia has a pair} and a sweet little ruffled grey top. That's probably my favorite combination, something dressy paired with something casual... like a beautiful sparkly chandelier over a beat up, rustic farm house table. Love that.

Anyway, if mom wants to coordinate, she could pick up this adorable little ensemble by Nicole Miller.

Just a reminder that all Design-a-Day shoes are one of a kind, but I will have the best designs manufactured. Also, at the end of the 30 days, we will be ready for pre-orders for our manufactured shoes! Happy Saturday!

Thanks! I am excited, too... and a lot nervous! I have quite a bit of work to do to get us up to pre-order ready!

Hi Jessica,

I love the Nicole Miller outfit pictured above! I tried to follow the link but it only brought me to her main page and I couldn't find where this particular blouse was available. Can you help me? I love your style!!

thanks,
Elena
