News Brief: 2

Well, classes certainly have started up again. It also certainly is snowing again. And, if you put those two factors together, you will come to the conclusion that I am walking to school in extremely unpleasant environments.

Just thought I'd update for the sake of updating in order to emphasize that I haven't forgotten and I will be posting some exciting outfits once the weather will allow it.

This is what I looked like today: pink striped polo shirt, black jeans and my off-brown (I have never known how to describe this color) jacket complete with Watchmen button straight from last year's WonderCon.

I'm hoping for attractive-outfit-appropriate weather sometime soon! Stay tuned.

Get up, get-get-get down.

Alright! As I have been promising for weeks, without further ado, here are the crazy shoes I recently purchased (no regrets!):

You may recognize these as the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa wedge booties that I mentioned in my last post. They are tremendously comfortable despite not looking it at all, which really characterizes my favorite type of shoes. I try not to wear outfits out of the house without being willing to experience a crazy emergency situation -- up to and including the zombie apocalypse -- in them because you never know what can happen on a night out on the town.

I hope to get a chance to post again soon, but classes at my university have officially started as of today. Also, it's snowing again! I am displeased with this development. Anyway, I'll update [hopefully] very soon!

Walking tall.

For many months, I have had a huge thing for wedge booties. As you know, I desperately love outrageous platforms and heels, so these are right up my alley. It all started with the Acne wedges:

Upon seeing these shoes for the first time, I came to the conclusion that they were (a) unbelievably attractive and (b) out-of-the-question expensive. However, I was not deterred as the style became rather popular and many more options surfaced. Observe:

These are Dolce and Gabbana/suede/even more expensive, but they're not thoroughly bad-looking, right?

I then noticed these Jeffrey Campbell 99 Zip Wedges that were dramatically less expensive. Now we were starting to get somewhere.

These are called "The Dancer" by Illex Kinni, although they are not my first inclination when thinking of dancing shoes. However, they are fantastic and I really love the blue lining and little side bows. Tempting, I must say.

And then, when all hope was nearly lost, I stumbled upon the Jeffrey Campbell Alexa wedge booties. Why, Alexa, has no one told you that you are a dead wringer for the Acne wedges? And far, far less expensive? And the answer to my prayers?

Let me just say that I may have purchased one of the aforementioned pairs of shoes. And I do not regret it because I love them, they are fabulous and we all are entitled to a few extravagances now and then. ♥♥♥

I will post photos of them very shortly!

All I see are stilettos.

I am back home, finally, after a most excellent vacation! And I come bearing a shoe post!

I bought both of these shoes before I left town from the shoe clearance rack at Charlotte Russe, which is swiftly becoming my favorite place to shop. They always manage to have one pair of amazing shoes, just in my size, for extremely low prices.

I was thrilled to find these fabulous blue heels, as blue heels were high on my list of Items I Must Have in My Wardrobe for a few months. And these were six dollars. Six dollars. They're tremendously high, but the fact that the front is also on a platform makes them much easier to wear when walking. I wore them with red tights to a play and managed to walk all over Santa Monica Boulevard in them with ease.

Now, these fabulous gold glitter heels came into my life back in October. They have much less platform than the blue heels but make up for it by being covered in gold glitter. They are the absolute definition of the word "fabulous." And these suckers cost eleven dollars. I have yet to wear them out, because one must have a fantastic opportunity to debut such golden shoes, but I'm sure their time will come.

Also, have you ever noticed how difficult it is to take a picture of the side of your own foot? It's pretty difficult and I will be enlisting some assistance in the future. And, if you click on these pictures, they will get humongous and you will be able to count the specs of dust on my floor. I hope you don't do that. My next outfit documentation will be far less pitiful. Stay tuned!
