work it wednesday!

It's been a while since we've done a Work it Wednesday, no? And in usual WIW form, I am a day late. The internet would just not cooperate yesterday. Sorry folks!

Today's "work it" is for a reader that emailed me about these boots recently...

(Minnetonka Fringe Bootie, Urban Outfitters, $58)

Here's her note:


My name is Angie and I am a 28 year old project manager for a progressive ad agency in SF. My wardrobe is very fashion forward and slightly trendy with a nice mix of vintage items and a penchant for skinny jeans (I just bought the same dark destroyed gap jeans you have) and heels. I have fallen head over heels for these moccasins from Urban Outfitters. I really want to buy them but I am not sure how I would wear them without looking like I should be panhandling in the Haight or pairing them with a plaid flannel and looking like Jackie from Roseanne.

Any ideas or suggestions?

So in true Work it Wednesday form, here are three options Angie!

Keep it casual and chic with this fun look. I am loving grey jeans these days... they seem to be a great compliment in just about any outfit. Fun pops of orange keep the look interesting.

These boots exude a certain boho look... but keep it fresh and modern with slim cords and fun accessories. I absolutely love this look!

Angie mentioned she likes a vintage feel to her outfits... this one has tons of vintage appeal while still fresh and modern.

Thank you so much for your email Angie... if you have a fashion related question for me, send them to goodlifeforless @ - I'll do my best to answer them all!

I've been lusting after a pair of suede shoes like these but minus the fringe but have also been hung up on how to wear them without looking too grungy. Love the idea of the cords! I would also tell your reader to skim through some Sartorialist posts because I've seen similar shoes on there with dresses, etc. Just to get a glimse of them in action.

I love your WIW!! Cute shoes-I wanted a pair of mocs this winter but never got any. Love the second outfit with that gold watch and orange tote.
