Erm, thanks, cat! Get out of the way!
Try again, the shoes:
The blue sweater is also new - it's silk and cashmere, paper thin, and the front is covered in rows of tiny sequins, each one hand-sewn on. I felt a little Roaring Twenties in this flapper-esque silhouette.
I had to photograph and dash, as we met up with friends to see "Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans" (hilarious, over-the-top Nic Cage, and duh, it's a Werner Herzog movie, of course I loved it). Anyway, I quickly threw on my jeans and boots:
The stuff (the sweater colour is closer to the right blue in the shots above than here):
There, that's a better idea of the glorious burgundy/ruby red of the shoes. They are piped in grey and are made of leather. They were totally comfortable - lots of padding on the ball of the foot.
You can see all the tiny sequins on the sweater above. It was $15 in a thrift store.
Proof of my awesome deal on the shoes. Check it out: Town Shoes is a kryptonite store for me - keep me away from there! I'll spend all my money! Although, truly, mostly I just look, because I'm now spoiled by thrift and consignment store prices. I'll only pay over $100 for Fluevogs now.
