Who doesn't need a little whimsy added to their style? Fashion should never feel fussy, and I think a large part of wearing trends and statement pieces is not to take yourself to seriously. These dachshund flats are the perfect mix of elegant and goofy—which could be the trademark of my style in general—so I just had to have them.
We really dig Loly in the Sky, so when they reached out to us and wanted to collaborate on a couple of blog posts, it was a no brainer for us! We're familiar with Loly in the Sky because Modcloth has carried them for a while. Additionally, they have recently been chosen as a graduate of "The Workshop" at Macy's which mentors and fosters growth within up-and-coming minority and women owned businesses, which is definitely a program we can get behind. We are firm believers in developing women, especially in the business world. As part of being a graduate of this program, Loly in the Sky is now available at Macy's, which means you can go to your local store to pick up your very own pair!

Since I wanted to elevate the rest of my look, I thought this giant bell sleeve button down would be perfect. The black piping mimics the piping on the shoes, so they were a great match. Black velvet pants are elegantly comfortable and are cropped high enough to really show off the shoes!
Round sunnies and a red lip helped give the ensemble a classic feel. An updo and deco-inspired earrings lend a tres chic vibe to the look, which adds to the playful juxtaposition of elegant and goofy. Though if there were a pup that looked elegant, this would surely be the one.
I also love how the shoes are understated, so they'd be perfect for a super conservative look, until someone got close enough to see the little doxie.
