On Saturday morning I made a trip into Dallas with my mom and my sister to Again & Again, our favorite consignment store here in Dallas. I've posted one of our trips to Again & Again before-Leslie Pritchard has an amazing eye! 

We fell in love with a lot…

 

My mom ended up getting these chairs. We're changing the look of our house right now, these will be great.

Last time I was in the store, Leslie told me how much she loved my Chanel ponyhair herringbone boots. So I wore them for her ;)

Worn with a Zara lamb fur vest, silk mens shirt, Urban Outfitters lace trimmed shorts, J. Crew bracelet and F21 tights.

 

Afterwards we hit up Northpark. 

It was time for me to buy a pair of flats. I don't really own any flats. I have three pairs of beautiful oxfords (a pair of sivler Yohji brogues, a pair of Dries van Noten faux croc metallic oxfords, and a pair of my mom's Salvatore Ferragamo brogues from the 80s that are falling apart) They are all very delicate so I don't wear them very often. I have one pair of Marni flats that I bought on sale years ago, but they aren't very practical either.

I fell in love with these Givenchy ballet flats though-what a beautiful color!

 

 

TTYS-thank you for all of your interesting arapaima emails!

If you're interested in checking out the Again & Again stores-here are both of their locations and info!

I wanted to post some pictures of my favorite fish-I love all kinds of underwater life. That's why I called this blog Sea of Shoes. I'm obsessed with arapaimas. It is one of the largest freshwater fish in the world…the largest one ever reported was 14.8 ft long. They seem very powerful and mysterious. And so prehistoric.

Arapaimas appear in my dreams a lot. Wouldn't it be cool to have a crazy piece of jewelry featuring the arapaima?

If you're a regular reader of Sea of Shoes…you may have noticed my penchant for animal jewelry. Animal jewelry is my obsession. The more obscure the species, the better. Everyone does owl jewelry and sparrow motifs…but antelopes, squids, monkeys, and sea monsters are a little harder to come by. Our jewelry cabinet is a very exotic zoo. 

My mom gets all the credit for finding the good stuff-she's an expert animal jewelry hunter.

 

My antelope friend is worn on a vintage cropped fur jacket, a vintage Yves Saint Laurent green velvet wrap skirt, Ray Ban glasses, Rugby Ralph Lauren Argyle socks, and my Proenza Schouler lace-up booties. 

This piece of jewelry is a big feature in the works-expect to see it posted soon. I cannot wait to share more!!

Animal jewelry outfit #2….the fox and the horses.

Vintage double horse head necklace and Christopher Ross fox belt buckle worn with a Marni skirt, random silk mens shirt, and Martin Margiela cut-out sandals.

Oh….I have some big news guys!

Check out the H. Chalayan boots my mom has just obtained….stopped your heart, didn't they? I have to borrow these soon! We are huge fans of Hussein Chalayan….here is a Hussein Chalayan 90's retrospective post I did a few months back.

Have a great week!
