Blue School Daze:

Sunglasses- Betsey Johnson, Blazer- Forever21, Top-Express,
Denim- Vintage, Bag-Marc Jacobs (very similar here), Watch- Michael Kors (Get it here), Gifted Evil Eye bracelets, Sandals- Marc Jacobs

      I have to admit, I'm actually wearing this outfit now as I type this post! This ensemble is a culmination of everything I love in my closet. My over worn Betsey Johnson sun specs, bold blue blazer (previously worn here in my first ever outfit post!), vintage denim (I scored while I was visiting this travel destination), and finally some Marc Jacobs (the bag and shoes). I found these shoes on ebay over a year ago but they needed to have the heel repaired. I finally took them in to my favorite shoe cobbler and now they no longer keep the cobwebs in my closet company! Okay, I don't actually have spiders and cobwebs in my closet but these amazing shoes were sitting in there unloved for quite a long time! 

       Do you repair your broken shoes 
or do you replace them?



  1. Love blue, those shoes are precious! I have stuff from my teenage years that I still wear & if it's broke I try and get them fixed first before I think of replacing it!! You look great! x

  2. I love the pics by the school bus.... why do I envision you skipping school???? Love the attitude that jumps off of your pictures :) I did get a heel repaired once (although sometimes I use a broken heel as an excuse to buy new shoes)... you look great dear!


  3. Lovely post! You look great.
    Well, if the shoes are really broken, I tend to replace them!

    Shall we follow each other?


  4. Great outfit! Love the quilted handbag. I always repair my shoes -- it's a great way to save money and make a great pair last for years. xo style, she wrote

  5. You look gorgeous in this cobalt blue. It's one of my favorite colors and you're wearing it well.

    And I always, always try to get shoes repaired before buying new ones. It's less expensive and less of a waste.

  6. These pics came out better than I thought they would. You look good as always.

  7. I replace them :D I like your outfit a lot - it's very pretty :))

  8. Hi dear! I'm here! Love tour blue blazer and your shoes! I'll wait on my blog!

  9. Depending on how much they cost, I'll get them repaired. El cheapo's get replaced. HAHAHA Nico, I adore your outfit girl. Super fab!

  10. thanks for your comment!!
    i like your style :)
    i follow you !!

  11. You look amazing! Love your blog!!! invited to my blog <3

  12. It depends on the shoe but I am so bad about taking mine to the cobbler most of the time they are pitched! Nico, I read on another blog that there is a brand from the UK here is the link that sells 37" inseam jeans :) Thought of you right away. The blog is:

  13. Fantastic photos! Love the blue against the yellow!


  14. Nico, I LOVE this outfit! Cobalt blue suits you perfectly! And did you say Marc Jacobs? Yesss, please :) I always have my shoes repaired, it would be such a shame to toss them just because of the heel! A good shoe cobbler is equally important as a great tailor!

  16. You look amazing in these pictures! I love the blue blazer- it pops so well, making you look professional yet fashionable :)
    And I know where to take my broken shoes from now on! I love that you found a cobbler!

  17. If they're staples to my wardrobe, repair for sure!

    I totally would wear this outfit... I swear I have some of the same pieces. I love the classic cobalt blue and black wardrobe!

  18. I always repair my faves. I love this outfit. That blue is electric. It's my favorite color these days.

    Thanks for coming by and leaving such a sweet comment. It's nice to meet you.


  19. Love the bright blue blazer and Marc Jacobs bag! What a perfect outfit. I've never repaired shoes before but I have been investing in some slightly more expensive, classic pairs that I hope to keep around so I'm in search of a cobbler I can entrust with them.

  20. I really like that color blue on you!
