walk like an egyptian

Perhaps now and then you find yourself wondering, “What should I wear to an Egyptian-themed ‘three-quarters birthday’ party (planned only 4 days in advance) for which costumes are ‘strongly-encouraged’?”

Well, I don’t know what you’d wear, but I wore this:

I don’t know why this top (Express: size M) read vaguely Egyptian to me, but I didn’t have a lot to work with. I’d say it’s not bad for 4 days’ notice, right?

happy 2011!

Hope everyone had a great NYE! My night was, uh… eventful, to say the least! But I did rock the good old gold dress. And I made a post for it anyway.

From Express, years ago. It was just too perfect a party dress to pass up. And despite feeling like a stuffed sausage when I tried it on earlier in the week (ladies, you know it happens), I ended up feeling great in it.

fakesgiving 2010

Hello there! Today was Fakesgiving (fake friends Thanksgiving), and it was a total success. Last year we had 4 people; this year we had 14 people! And so much wonderful food! We try to dress up because it’s just more fun, and that ends up making Fakesgiving more classy than my regular Thanksgiving, to be honest. Here’s what I wore:

This is almost head-to-toe New York & Company. Top: NY & Co. (size 6), pencil skirt: NY & Co. Collection (size 12).

reminder: livetweeting Emmys 2010!

Happy Emmy Awards 2010! Just a quick reminder that I’ll be livetweeting the preshow(s) & ceremony over at http://twitter.com/ShoesKid if you care to follow along at home.

Until then, however, here’s a look at one of my favorite party dresses:

This is, obviously, completely inappropriate for the likes of the Emmys (though I could see it being rocked at the Grammys). But isn’t it awesome?

metropolitan party chic

Oh! –

You caught me. I was absolutely eyeing that Honda Metropolitan and may or may not have sat on it. [Files not found.]

As you can see, I took some pics outside yesterday before my friend Tate‘s 25th birthday party. I really wasn’t sure what to wear since it was a casual BBQ early on & a cocktail party later – Tate himself had a costume change! – but I decided I’d just dress for the cocktail hour early. Because, let’s face it, it’s fun.

in bloom – sine hollyhock, take 2

I have been in such a good mood today – it’s Friday! it’s my friend William’s birthday! and I love my look today! And this one is a genuine day-to-night, office-to-out ensemble, too.

You’ve seen this dress before, but that was in a most ridiculous, staying-in-on-Friday-night silly post. Not so today. No, today I feel I am done up right, if I may say so myself!

Sine hollyhock dress (size 8): Anthropologie, ruffled grey cardigan: Express, braided sandals for comfort and bug-bite-avoidance: Mossimo.

sparkly accessories, please

Nothing super special in this jeans, top & cardi ensemble today; it’s really the accessories that make it shine – literally.

Top: Mossimo (size M), sequin-trimmed oatmeal cardigan: Express (size M), jeans: American Eagle (size 10). The really fun parts, however, are the headband, necklace, and all the sequins.
