Rooftop Views and VANELi Shoes

Before the weather here in Phoenix gets a wee bit too toasty to be taking pictures in the middle of the day, I called in a favor to my good friend and photographer, James H. of Aspex Photography. Lucky for me, the one thing I know about men is that bribing them with food always works....So, after the promise of a tasty lunch at The Vig Uptown, I got a Thundercats are go on my little photo shoot

 Pineapple Sunday Martini and Prada Sunnies

Smoked salmon with capers, pita and chive-lemon cream cheese

Sunglasses: Prada
Necklace: Vintage
Dress: Voir Voir
Belt: Vintage
Cocktail ring: Forever 21
Convertible Bag: Kooba (My Sister's Closet)
Shoes: VANELi (thrifted)

 I picked this outfit to feature one of my favorite dresses and this sliding gold vintage belt I recently thrifted. The large neutral-toned, floral print allows the dress to be mixed with neutrals or bright accessories. Gold heeled VANELi's seemed appropriate on a bright Phoenix afternoon and the Prada sunnies were a necessity. Another favorite of mine that made it into this outfit, is my black patent leather Kooba bag that is convertible. It can be carried as a clutch (as shown), with a short black strap for over the arm or a long chain and black strap for over the shoulder. Gotta love an investment accessory that gives you variety in styling!

Thank you for reading Naked n Hungry, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
