What I'm Sproutin': Ruby Re-mix

Dress: Urban Lotus Boutique at Etsy, shoes: Re-Mix Vintage shoes, belt: Forever 21

I am very excited because I just bought a new flash for my camera from Big Camera (相機王), my favorite photography equipment store in Taipei, and can now take indoor photos on cloudy days. Woohoo! Now all I need to do is figure out how to take good indoor photos. My dress is from Urban Lotus Boutique on Etsy. I'm not sure how old it is, but it has a very cool print and a Peter Pan collar. Here's a close-up from the seller:

The hem looks uneven in the photo above, but it isn't. Here's another view. You can also see how much my cat loves me.


My shoes are the highlight of my outfit -- they are from Re-Mix Vintage Shoes and are reproductions of 1940s wedges. I bought them at The Bee's Knees on Piedmont Ave. in Oakland when we were in California for our wedding last May.


They are very comfortable, but I keep falling off of them when I walk because of my over-pronated feet (they roll inwards). I bought motion stabilizing New Balance running shoes that are made specifically for over-pronators, but I still get shin splints in the inner front of my calves when I run, so I have to watch my gait. I guess I just have to learn how to walk/run correctly!


  1. You have the best shirt dress collection ever Catherine. Love you and your cute kitty!

  3. I don't know about my gait and always wondered, I need to visit one of those specialty stores to have them check! Love your little red shoes, tres precious.

  4. Fantastic ensemble as per usual. And per usual, I learn something new from you: over-pronated. I'm sorry you ail but I thank you for the new vocabulary!

    P.S. I love remix. They are a little steep for my artist's wallet, but are so incredibly comfortable. :)

  5. those shoes are fabulous! i love the cris-crossing straps. and your vintage dress is really pretty as well- love the pattern. ~joelle

  6. Whenever I pick my cat up and try to take a photo with him, he assumes I have some nefarious purpose (possibly that I'm trying to kill him) and puts on an expression of horror. Cats are weird.

    I love that dress! Am addicted to collars.
