Burgundy nude beige red

Yesterday I received a box from DSW containing some shoes I purchased earlier in the week. I figured in the meantime while I work on getting to the point where I can afford to purchase high end designer shoes (if I so desire), I might as well go ahead and add a few new pairs of low end shoes to my closet so I can have options for my Style Practice posts.

Among the shoes that arrived in my DSW box are these nude Beige Qupid Ravish-83 ankle booties. They were $30. I wanted to get the red but they didn’t have the red in my size so I got the taupe instead. I’m calling them nude instead of taupe. I don’t know what accounts for the differences between taupe and nude.

The boots are nice enough. They’re high and I still can’t walk in high heels. I’m trying; but I’ve been trying since I was a teenager and I still can’t manage. So I think I’m just hopeless when it comes to high heels. Either that or I just haven’t found the right heels yet.

Had a little fun playing photographer.

Not as much fun trying to play shoe model. It’s a chore trying to pose and taking a picture of yourself posing.

As for the style practice…

I’m still trying to build up my wardrobe so I can get more creative with my styling endeavors. For now I am sticking with thrifted clothing purchases. Since this is just for experimental purposes there’s no need to go out spending money on something new for every idea I want to try out. I wanted to go to the Goodwill this week but it’s been cold and snowy.

I envisioned a burgundy nude beige red scheme while trying to think up some ideas for styling these boots.  I was thinking more along the lines of a red mini skirt with a burgundy top and a beige leather jacket. But I do not have a red mini skirt in my closet. I also do not have a beige leather jacket or a burgundy top that would have been suitable. So I settled for a pair of burgundy cropped skinny jeans and a burgundy cotton button down sleeveless shirt. I picked up both of them from the  goodwill on one of my visits.  With that I wore my several years old beige three-quarter sleeve cotton jacket from Old Navy.

I did not actually take a trip to Burano Italy to pose for this amateur photo shoot. I did the posing in my living room and used Photoshop to pop myself into the gorgeous background of Burana Italy courtesy of a photo found via pixabay.com.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
