Multicolored and My First World Problem.

Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  Hope you are all winning with whatever plans you had and are also doing great.  Firstly, thanks for all your lovely comments on last weeks post, I really appreciate the love and support you guys show me every week.  So beautiful Tatiana M of Hekyma.com asked what my height was (which I should have stated last week, since I wrote about it. DUH). Anyways, I am 5 feet 10 inches or 1.7 meters tall.

I put this outfit together and was quite happy with the results up until it was time to choose which shoe to wear. This first world problem is getting to me o chai, seriously consumerism is not good. In fact it creates big time problems ehn, look at me, owner of a few $10 shoes complaining gosh I feel sorry for the celebrities, they must live in hell.  Anywho, so I eventually went with the red loafers but I thought it looked oh so fashionable with the silver heels so I had to get a photo in that one too.

So we went for the shoot and I was totally in the pouting mood, you know the one where you do the dull eyes and push the lips out to look posh? Eheeeem, that's the one.  Well I can tell you its not for everyone.  Hubby kept saying "the pose is okay but if you don't like the look of your face in the photo, I will not be held responsible".  How interesting that he would do a verbal disclaimer even before taking the photo.  I totally married a wise man.

Thanks for visiting and reading.  Let me know what you think in the comments box.  Have a lovely week and HAPPY EASTER IN ADVANCE.

  1. The outfit looks fabulous with both pairs of shoes, and it's interesting that changing the shoes changes the total look.

  2. can´t say how much ich love this outfit!!! with both shoes! and speaking of - i would take the silver and the red ones if i found them in a shop. you have a gorgeous taste - in shoes especially.
    and on the other side - how many people do not have any shoes to wear and only one set of clothes..... we all should recall this from time to time - and should do our little contribution to change the world into a better place.

  3. This is such a great read! Very lovely photos too. Happy Monday dear! :)

  4. Is that the pouting look? It looks great to me. You have such a joyful face though I don't think you know how to make it look miserable. I love both pairs of shoes though if I were choosing for my own feet comfort always wins. The silver ones are sitting pretty shoes. LOL Have a great week, Elsie! xoxo

  5. Just seeing your colorful and lovely images made me smile. Then your write up made my smile even bigger. Don't you just love the pouty face? I get in that mood sometimes too. Wise hubby indeed. Darling you never looked better! Both the silver pumps and the red loafers were great choices. You carried this look off very well. Kudos and have a great week love. http://fashionablyidu.blogspot.com/

  6. You look amazing, like sunshine yourself :)) Wonderful smile my dear, the print on the top is perfect :)) Happy week to you xx

  7. The red loafers look great. the silver shoes look fantastic... But they're really bad, aren't they? Can't walk in them? Then it was the right call to make.

  8. You look great girl...Those colors are amazing!!!!! Very vibrate..



  9. Hubby is so very wise. I love the outfit with the silver shoes. So fashionable too.

  10. Hi Elsie, how are you?
    Thanks for your comment on my last post, the Yellagonga Regional Park is really big but the litle corner we went to is about 20-30 minutes drive from the CBD (between Woodvale and Pearsall).
    Your outfit is lovely, so colourful and perfect for the bright sunshine in the pictures! The silver heels do look very stylish, however I love how the bloodred shoes pop, suvh eyecatchers!
    Wishing you a good week! :)

  11. really a lovely combo, love all the colors and that wonderful top!

  12. Hi Darling,
    I really love your outfit, you look so elegant! I love your pants!!!

  16. Hello Elsie,

    What a lovely outfit...and you look radiant! You have a very nice blog, and such a beautiful smile. Thank you so much for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  17. Colourful and beautiful look!

  18. In my world of 5 feet tall people, you're a giant...albeit a pretty giant :). Love your cultural outfits. The colors are so vivid. I choose the silver pumps!

  19. Don't even get me started on the shoes wahala, sister. I've over 20 shoes and still don't know what to wear sometimes. I think its a ladies problem. Lol!! Having said that, both shoes compliments this outfit so well. -Ofcos the silver pumps takes the outfit to a dress up level. I'm coming for that top. :)
    Gorgeous!! Happy Easter..


  20. Such a wonderful bright outfit, perfect with either shoe , red for comfort and walking anywhere, the silver shoes for looks as long as the car is closeby. I laughed at your husband comments, sounds so familiar. He does a great job but he has a gorgeous subject to work with. I hope you are enjoying your Easter, Elsie.
