Kourtney Kardashian definitely inspired me to buy my first pair of knee high gladiators last year- guilty! However, even after having them for so long, I finally pulled them out for the first time just just a few days ago! After buying them, I started feeling a little too dominatrix-y for my liking, so until I figured out how to style them, I wasn’t comfortable wearing them out in public. I decided to go with a peach shift dress and black/gold accessories to style the gladiators, and I loved the look!
I wanted to match the gold hardware on my handbag, so I chose trendy gold jewelry
Dress: ASTR from the Nordstrom Savvy section
Gladiators: Steve Madden also from Nordstrom
Necklace: America’s Mart
2014 was the year of high waisted skirts for me. I picked up this gem in Singapore, and I love the pleating! It makes it a bit fancier, and gives a definite shape. If you have smaller hips like me, look for something like pleating to help give you shape! I paired this metallic cropped sweater to jazz up the black a bit, and make the outfit a bit more festive. The gladiators were added to give the look a bit more masculinity with the feminine pieces. I love how it turned out!
The metallic sweater really helps to make the look a bit more glitzy for night time!
The turtle neck of the sweater made me immediately reach for a statement necklace
The side slit of the skirt makes it so easy to walk in, and adds just the right amount of drama
Close up of the gladiator sandals! I chose a style that has a full back zipper as well as adjustable straps so that it fits my legs the way I want them to
How impossibly feminine is this skirt?! Lots of room for movement and the waistband keeps it in place!
Top: Nasty Gal
Skirt: Department store in Singapore called Robinsons
Necklace: Wantable Co (monthly jewelry/makeup box)
Gladiators: Steve Madden
