This One's For Ady





This blog isn't quite a year old and though it was started with me (sort of) kicking and screaming, I have to say, it's been fun and a nice outlet. And, whenever someone who's not a friend or not being paid* to read it chimes in, I just get all warm and fuzzy inside. It makes me feel honored and thankful and all Sally Fields-ish ("You like me! You really like me!" even if you really don't and you're just mindlessly trolling the Web). So when Ady — someone I don't know but took the time to post a message — commented on Friday's Shoe Haiku that she needed to see the Simple Satires styled, well, how could I not?

So, Ady, this is for you.

Outfit No. 1: J. Crew ruffled cardi, Victoria's Secret tank, J. Crew necklace and J. Crew chino shorts. The blue checked Simples finish off a casual look.

Outfit No. 2: Young, Fabulous & Broke hooded tank dress, thrifted Guess tuxedo blazer, Converse for Target scarf. It's a little punky, a la Kristen Stewart at whatever awards show she attended and threw on Converse with her Yigal Azrouel red dress.


Outfit No. 3: T Luxury wrap tee, Forever 21 cami, The Battalion "veggie fur" vest (I dearly love this even though it looks like skinned Muppet), J. Crew matchstick jeans. The black Simples add edge. I think my pink checked Simples would look cute, too, and would soften the ensemble.

Best part of all: wearing sneaks means your feet feel fine all day long.

*Don't get any ideas — I'm just kidding. I'm not paying people to read this stuff. Although, there are plans to start some nifty giveaways, so if you haven't fanned Some Hot Dishes yet, you should. Oooooh, such blatant marketing. Yes, I am trying to plan for a second career should the bottom really, truly fall out on the newspaper industry tomorrow. Which, I would not bet against.

Aw, shucks! Just for me!
I love how these shoes worked with outfits a little dressier too... and make them instantly more casual. You may have convinced me to buy some...

Ahhh...I spoke too soon in playing catch up, I missed the "looks" for these Simple tennies. These are very cute and fun! I would love the pink with the "muppet" vest which BTW, I adore. I will check these out..where's the best deal to be had?

i ended up scoring the best deal from endless.com - via bing's cashback program. have you heard of this? go to the bing search engine, and it'll show you which stores offer cashback. if my addled brain remembers correctly, the simples were $53, but i got $13 off by clicking onto endless from the bing cashback site. the hitch is you have to wait, sometimes two months to get your refund (although, i have a friend who bought and got immediate money back into her paypal account). but, you won't regret buying 'em! oh, and if you didn't know - endless does free returns and is pretty snappy about refunding, in case the size doesn't quite work.
