$36 (faux) leather & lace

Hi! We actually had some sunshine this morning! Which made me start to break a sweat taking these pics, no lie. But was it nice and toasty warm outside, too? Noooo, of course not!

Oh well! Happy with this, which has quickly become one of my new favorite outfits – and it seriously cost $36.

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.

happy holidays! & happy 1st birthday to hlask!

With the craziness of the holidays, I haven’t been around much again – oops! Bad blogger! Hope everyone had a lovely time with friends and family. I sure did.

Here I am on the porch with our second Christmas tree (there were 3 in the house), wearing a beautiful ecru (basically white) sweater from White House Black Market (which doesn’t seem to photograph as lovely as it really is), Target jeggings, and Bandolino leather boots.

owl be home for christmas

Oh hey, poor little neglected blog! I haven’t forgotten you. I have simply gotten way too boring and comfortable with my clothing lately. It’s been lots of sweaters and jeans, which just didn’t seem worth posting.

But my brand new owl earmuffs – owlmuffs, if you will – are definitely worth a look. Let me give you a better view.

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?

office diva

I feel like I’m a little overdressed today, sort of. But I sort of don’t care. It’s still entirely office-appropriate, if flashy.

And sometimes you need some sparkle to make it through the week, am I right?

gypsy, tramp – thief?

Good morning! Tough to say what’s good about it, though, as a) it’s Monday, b) it’s a glum day, and c) I was wide awake at 2:30 am and tossed and turned for a good while after that. Then I forgot my coffee at home and felt stabby on the ridiculously stop-n-go (emphasis on the stop) CTA. As my beloved friend Kate would say, there is way too much Monday in today!

But whatever, at least I’m having a little fun.

I feel like this is, quite obviously, the sister outfit to my last post – but while that girl was the preppy cheerleader, this one is the boho art student. Or something.
