Oh My, Those Are High

I used to be one of those women who kept 2 pairs of shoes in her desk. I just wore them every day, until they wore out and then I bought new ones, same type, same colour: black. I have to credit Ruth for breaking me out of that habit! She asked me - after I'd told her for the tenth time about all the amazing shoes I had - why I never actually wore any of them.

She had a point. What was I saving them for, anyway?

I would never have worn these to work back then - too much of a going out shoe, I'd have said. But keeping my bottom half black, wearing a skirt just past the knee and making the top half interesting, I think I made it work.

This also marks the second wearing of the corset top with belt over a blouse. I wore this with pants and a necklace last time - I was tempted to do the necklace again, but I wanted to wear the bracelet I got at the silent auction last week:

Sorry, a little dark. For you crafty types, this is just a stretch elastic - I bet it would be easy to make. I love all the different shapes and textures on it.

Blouse (Esprit), corset top (Le Chateau, consignment), pencil skirt (Kensie), tights (Hue), belt (gift shop, NYC), shoes (JLo), bracelet (from a consignment shop), silver filigree oval hoops.

  1. Are these one of your "sex on sticks" shoes, because if not they should be, because they're absolutely fab! I also like how they can be toned down and sensible too.

  2. Sex on a stick! Yes!

    I saw these same shoes today in Towne Shoes for $99 on sale from $139. And I got them for $59.99.

    *does a happy dance*

    I wore these last Saturday for partying.
