This is from a couple of months back, but I was quickly reminded why I loved this pic.. and well it is the shoes! RED! I didn’t remember or realize the power of the RED shoe, but honestly they make you feel instantly sexy and well as cliche as it might sound POWERFUL, to do what though I am not truly sure!? Maybe give your man that come hither look? or maybe take on the WORLD? 🙂 I have a couple of things that make me feel strong and powerful and one is a button down blouse? not sure why it just does! Don’t know if I should try and figure it out or just let it be, either way What makes you feel STRONG & POWERFUL? would love to know.
The shoes are no longer available in case your wondering, they are from STEVE MADDEN and called lypstick. They have a beautiful Red shoe available called DEJAVUE, LINK HERE DEVAJUE PUMPS

I love monochramatic looks are all neutral colors with something crazy like a awesome pumps like these are a bold lip to pull the look together. For some reason I prefer prints to be on my feet? and love pieces that are unique but plain in color. I like to look for awesome shapes but like a beautiful bag or my shoes to do the talking so to speak! Just what I have always tend to gravitate too and the above is no exception.

Just a quick post, all the outfit details above. Not a whole lot to post right now, or not much new. Well I did
just start a new job! which I am excited about, not in fashion 😦 but for now I will settle for a job that pays my bills!
The top is new from topshop.. I love there tops!! all of them and I am just a little obsessed right now! yikes!! the only I don’t like from their itty bitty tops
is the too high prices for half a shirt >:/ but… I get over it! This particular top is a little short for my taste.. I ended up wearing a higher waist pant in the end
sorry no pics.. However if your okay with exposing a little belly then go for it. Oh by the way in case you need to know size reference, I am 5″2 and 1/2 🙂 and my torso is short and last but not least I bough a large.
On to the jeans.. these are wonderful and stretchy.. the thing great about their leggings is they don’t lose their shape, which is typically what us girls are looking for in a jean, am I right? couldn’t find these exact ones available but I posted some similar ones with link, just click on pic! The purse I wore, sorry not shown is black american apparel clutch that I have used before, see previous posts.

Hi, I’m Melanie Cortez! I am a freelance photographer and full-time college student based in Mesquite, TX. I was mentored by Dallas Morning News staff photographers in 2008. I have recently received my Associates in Arts with an Emphasis in Photography. I have photographed commercial work for local businesses. For the past couple of years, I have been a contributor for NeighborsGo, the community news operation of The Dallas Morning News. I am actively involved in my community. Throughout the school year, I speak to local high school journalism/photography students about art and photography. I admire every detail in photography! I love to capture memories for others to cherish on paper. I absolutely adore the thought of producing photographs for clients knowing the photographs will become part of their family history’s keepsake for future generations to come.
