I am astounded to have found that my outfit pictures have been stolen and used on other sites. Really folks? You can't find better outfits, more model-like individuals? Anyway, I'll be toying with watermarks and such and such over the next week or so. I don't want anything to affect your experience, but it doesn't make me happy when other bloggers or Web sites steal my content. So if you find me doing anything that impedes your ability to read, access, or enjoy Wardrobe Oxygen – please let me know!

Okay, back to the fashion!

Yep, I wore this same jacket last Friday. But as my coworker said when I realized this, she couldn't tell because everything else about the outfit is different.  I just got these shoes back from the repair shop and am so excited.  I usually stick to black shoes because my wardrobe is black and I already own black shoe polish.  However, these shoes called out to me a while ago and I HAD to have them.  The thing is, it's a PITA to maintain gray shoes – hard to polish, easy to look scuffed.  Well one of the heel caps fell off so I took them in to be reheeled and my fabuloso shoe repair woman polished them up beautifully without ruining the distressed finish, smoothed down scuffed leather on the heels and made them look almost like new.  I swear, best $11 I have spent in a long time!

So I tried my hair casually wavy – in this morning's wind it looks a bit more casually disheveled.  Anyway, I have yet to master non-curly bangs with curly hair and not look circa 1991.  Think the thing is my hair is either curly or straight, not really in-between.  Have to keep playing with products and tools!

So what are your plans for this weekend?  The two things I am looking forward to most this weekend is my women's circle is meeting tonight, and tomorrow night my sister is having a party to celebrate her birthday.  Lots of fun with fabulous people – and I will be sure to take pictures Saturday night! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you later!

    I love this outfit, of course I’m a sucker for anything striped!

    Hi Ally, I’ve been reading your blog for some time now, and I just have to say that I really like your sense of style and your outlook on style and fashion. I’ve awarded you a Stylish Blogger Award on my blog, too:)

    The thing is, I don’t mind people using my photos if they link back or are referencing a certain item or style. But when they put it on a site claiming it’s them or by them, that’s awful. I think I’ll just let it be sans watermark because I hate photos that have watermarks blocking the outfit. 🙂 I guess I should be flattered they did it???

    My shoe place is a hole in the wall in a yucky strip mall next to a grocery store. Take a pair of shoes that just need something like a reheeling and try out a place. Many dry cleaners also do shoe repair. If they are great at what they do with your reheel, you can proceed with fancier shoe repairs. 🙂

    Oh wow, people are stealing your pictures? I’m so sorry to hear that. I agree with a previous comment – I suggest you put the watermark higher up because I’ve seen people crop out watermarks.

    I really need to find a good shoe repair person in the area I live in now!

    I didn’t even notice the watermark until you mentioned it so don’t worry! And you look fabulous!

    I love me some Ann Taylor. I am amazed at how their pieces maintain a level of “classic” and last longer than most other items.

    Oh my hell! Your hair looks fabulous! I really like it curly. My hair used to be crazy curly as a kid, but now it’s more frizzy, so I blowdry and use a large curling iron every day. I wish I had more curls.

    Sounds like you have a fun weekend planned. I was off today so I went shopping with a girlfriend at Banana Republic. Found two really cute sweaters marked down and then 50% off that. I limited myself to two sweaters and a belt and am very happy with my purchases. I can’t wait to wear them. As tired as I am of the snow (I live outside Philly), I don’t want spring yet; too many cute purchases I haven’t had a chance to wear.

    Have a great weekend!

    This is a great look on you!
    On a side note – if you use a watermark it needs to be bigger or at least cover a part of your body. The way it is now on the photo above someone could just crop the photo if they are determined to use it w/o your permission.

    Allie, you are looking fabulous! I love your new hair cut.
