Yesterday I looked like an Easter egg, so today I thought I would tone it down a bit, and dress a little more conservatively in black and white. I'm not sure that I succeeded in toning "it" down all that well though -- I think the zebra stripes on my skirt jazzed up what would have been a conservative look had the dress been a plain black. Oh, but did I ever feel good in this outfit.
sweater -- Gap
camisole -- Vassarette (Kmart)
skirt -- Express (thrifted)
tights -- Leggs / shoes -- Steve Madden (DSW)
Here's a close-up of my shoes. I think they're very pretty, and they definitely don't look like witch shoes.
I don't know what's gotten into me lately when it comes to shoes. All of a sudden, I can't get enough shoes. I love shoes -- I adore shoes. I can't go into a shoe store or, for that matter, into any store that sells shoes because I can't resist buying a pair. And not just one pair -- I end up buying multiple pairs! And these impulses are not relegated to shoes only -- I've also been buying boots. Luckily, there's been some amazing sales! Do you think that I can get away with blaming this new footwear obsession on menopause?
What surprises me though is that the guys -- I work with almost all guys -- seem to notice my shoes much more than my clothes (and I've been wearing what is considered to be kind of crazy, attention-getting outfits for my office). I even jokingly said that it was no surprise that I wasn't married, I had been concentrating on the wrong thing all these years. I always thought that the way to a guy's heart was through his stomach. Nobody told me that it was my shoes that would get a guy! I probably should have known though -- after all, that's how Prince Charming found Cinderella.
