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.
You gotta love early Christmas presents—
—especially when they involve ruffles.
Yesterday was a bit of a rough Monday for me, to the point that I began to feel the need to something drastic, like dye my hair dark brown or get a tattoo or adopt a puppy. While some of those might work ok, the feeling mercifully passed (for the moment), thanks in large part to good fun with good friends later in the evening.
I woke up this morning feeling good, too, and once I got dressed, I felt great. When you like the way you look, you carry yourself completely differently; you walk with confidence, hold your head higher, stand up straighter, and maybe even strut.
“Confidence, Cohen!” (Oh, how I miss The OC!)
Anyway, check the look:
Don’t worry – I really do have 2 legs. I’m just standing like a crazy person!
In response to my last post (the results are pretty evenly spread out right now, so please go vote!), a few people got talking about colorful, hot heels – and Divadoll21285 and I discussed red shoes in particular. As I told her, for a while I became obsessed with the idea of red shoes, I think back in college. I didn’t have any, and it was my quest to get some. They are just bright and bold and strangely empowering. They add kick to any outfit and are, let’s face it, rather sexy.
I now own 4 pairs. Ahem.
But, like she said, you need different types of red heels for different occasions. It’s important! With that, I present you my red shoe collection…
Just the basics today, folks:
These may be a bit more autumn-like colors, but with the weather as bipolar as it is, I don’t mind so much. Maroon cords: Ann Taylor Loft (size 12), sequin-trimmed oatmeal cardigan: Express (size M).
Oh my word, would you look at this thrifted dress I scored for $14 at Crossroads Trading Co. this weekend?
