The LBD of shoes

It’s Wednesday and I’ve made it through three fairly painless days of heel-wearing to work. I honestly didn’t expect this to be quite so simple. (Which I am sure now means I will take a nice good tumble tomorrow!) I rebounded from my wedges yesterday and wore my go-to black heels from BCBG. I honestly do not know how long I have had these but I have worn them to numerous weddings, gallery openings and probably a holiday or two. They are my most comfortable pair of heels ever! In fact, when I had to do a few pick up shots today from yesterday’s photo shoot, I did not even care that I was going to walk around our studio setting up lights in them. I really do love the feeling I get when I walk around in my heels and I’m feeling less and less self conscious about making THE LOUDEST NOISE walking through our studio. It’s like ‘Hey! I’m walking around! In heels!’

I did not do you honor of taking a photo of myself today. My photographer is MIA for the evening but I’ll try and get one up tomorrow. I did photograph the shoes and put together a quick little graphic. I will say this, while I do love the heels, it is really hard for me to put them together with jeans. I know I need to get over that, it just feels like I’m dressed for the opera. (Or how I would dress for the opera) I felt like my trousers were so dressy with the heel that I toned it down with a basic Gap tank. I guarantee you, a year ago, I would have worn this with flip flops, which I still love cute flip flops paired with wide-legged trousers. I love the look of having no feet. Weird I know and this blog is therapy for that. Happy Wednesday

Shop It To ME!!! Yes, please

Okay, I’ve been scouring the web feeding into my shopping obsession, when I discovered this:

Have you heard of this????? A website dedicated to finding sales based on your size (worth it’s weight in gold!!!), designers, items and places you like to shop. And….It’s FREE!!! So Shop It To Me is acting as your free personal shopper, they point you to the sale and then you take it from there. I’ve pretty much halted all work I’m supposed to complete for the day in order to focus on this. I’ve already created the perfect wish list. Plus, the more friends you refer to the site, GIFT CARDS are involved. Holy Cow!

I’m so excited to share this with you. And if I’m the last to know, well I am psyched to be so informed. I feel like I’ve joined a secret club!!! So here are a few items that I’ve discovered only within the last hour and I’m CRUSHIN’. I’ll be going through this site with a fine tooth comb and hopefully making a few purchases very soon. Just have to get two monthly student loan payments out the door. But I think some stuff might be worth starving over until next paycheck! Whoo HOO!!! What a great day. Off to DC tomorrow morning for a Saturday wedding. I’ll give a full report on the wedding fashion I observe.

Check out what I plan to wear too!
