Thurs, May 7/09 - Son of Dress Week - Black and White...and I Finally Get My Medal!

Last Thursday, Mom and I did our annual shopping/dinner date for her birthday. I like to buy her a new outfit or new clothes for her birthday and then we have a nice dinner. It's a good time.

With shopping in mind, I wanted to look nice, but be semi-comfortable, particularly in the footwear area:
My plain LBD that I have only worn a couple of times, my plaid houndstooth jacket, my groovy black and white "Harlow" Listen Up Fluevogs and hey, why not a flower and burgundy tights? Why not, I say!

And I got my medal from the race, finally! It is indeed a silver and it goes very nicely with my bronze from last year, so I think I'm going to have to train my butt off and go for the gold for next year!
Look, there it is!

The stuff:
Ah, John Fluevog, you make lovely shoes.

Dress (Esprit), jacket (Smart Set), shoes ("Harlow" Listen Up, Fluevog), bangle (The Cobbler), earrings (don't remember), flower (The Bay).


  1. Congratulations on the silver medal!! Such a gorgeous shopping outfit, you are way more dedicated than I. I do love to dress up more than I used to though. I find I feel better about myself when I do. So, now to get training for the gold! You can do it!

  2. Thanks! I will admit, my feet were a little tired when I got home. I totally feel better about myself when I know I look good.

    I will! I'll definitely train next year. Gold, baby!

  3. Congrats on the medal! i have to say i really like this outfit! Sophisticated and fun

  4. Thanks, Diane! I like the coloured tights with this.
