I love your shoes. They make me happy. I have yet to meet a pair of your shoes that don't put a smile on my face. These are no exception! I get compliments on them, and they are even comfortable despite the heel height.
I don't think so!
Hello all! Happy Tuesday!
I slept like hell last night! No, really, I did. I was awake until at least 11:45 last night; at least that was the last time I checked the clock. What would keep me awake? My clothing choice for today! Today's outfit did not come as a result of a restless night of sleep. It was a walk in the closet and make it work moment.
Who knows where the skirt I wanted is currently located. Is it in the dry cleaning basket? Maybe at the dry cleaners? Either way, it caused a momentary grrrr in the closet today. I settled for this...and dammit, I do feel like I settled. Ultimately, I will let you decide.
The skirt is a purchase from eBay last year. I love pencil skirts. However, I love pencil skirts better when they fit right. This was tight in the butt-ocks (remember put the accent on OCKS) last year, yet this year it is too big in the waist. I think it was sitting wrong on me. I felt like I was fighting the lining all day. Geez, Kel, it is a skirt. Get over it already!
The top? I love this top. Ben and I found it after a dinner in Uptown at Chino Latino (Asian Latin fusion with AMAZING cocktails) at a store I love - Heartbreakers. It is so much fun to shop there! You can buy a lot, and pay a little...or a lot, depending on what you find. I have found fun shoes at Heartbreakers, as I have shared before. The top has dolman sleeves, also known in my world as wings. I have this same top in a pretty blue. Remember I talked about balance? Pencil skirt on the bottom balances the wing look on the top. Or doesn't it?
The shoes. Ah, the shoes. As you can tell from my love letter to Betsey, they are from Betsey Johnson. Ben and I found these at Off Saks. They also had them in a deep forest green. It was a very difficult choice deciding on black or green. I had to have one of them! Look at the bottom of these babies! They are saying hi and winking at you with every step! They are platforms, and must be one of the highest heeled shoes I own. But remember, people, a platform offsets the heel! Height with comfort!
I will say, the combination of pencil skirt and platforms means you had better not have:
a. Meetings across town
b. Stairs to climb in a hurry
They do create quite the sashay, however!
The accessories? Matte silver earrings that I bought last year a Nordstrom on a trip to San Diego with the Hartunian sisters. My favorite necklace from Ben and a silver snake chain with a pendant from Silpada complete the look.
Finally back at home, today was a no workout day. I easily transitioned from work to relax by taking off the formal stuff and throwing on comfy cotton PJ bottoms. I was baking oatmeal cookies in this pic!
I have brought baked goods to the office both days so far this week. In order to protect my tupperware - I am notorious for not bringing it home - I have been transporting the items in a foil lined shoe box. Today after a meeting my friend Jennifer (Hi Jennifer!) said "Um, what's with the shoe box?" She totally thought she was busting me on a purchase! No,she wasn't, but it was an easy assumption!
BTW, yes, I am that person at your office that you hate because she bakes and brings it all to work. and YES, I do eat it. Half a cookie is on my food log tonight as proof at NM! I will plan for a whole one tomorrow! They were tasty!
Now, the dress results are in! By a 2:1 margin, the Red Dress is our Las Vegas winner! I will be strutting up and down the LV strip in that pretty number. Oh boy, that is going to be an interesting night!
Thanks for checking in! Please, leave me honest feedback on my wardrobe choice, and check out the vote at the bottom of the page!
