Downtown St. Paul is a really lovely place for picture taking. I hired my husband to test the new camera out on me during our lunch break. This outfit is rather special to me because the was free. I picked this little number up at this clothes swap a while back and I happen to think it's just dandy.

When I spotted it in the pile, it needed a little work. I removed the original elastic tie that was the same as the dress fabric, and replaced it with this little maroon one. Looks much better.

The shoes were my very first purchase experience with I paid $40 regular price (gasp!), but they've earned their keep. I had to replace the liner within the first year, they got so much use. Even at 4 1/2 inches, they serve me all day with little or no discomfort. Whoever thought of platform soles is my hero!

Dress: Bisou Bisou, Free!
Cami: TJ Maxx, $6
Shoes: Madden Girl, $40
