Ah, another late night. I stayed a couple of extra hours at work to get some stuff done, then met up with some friends for a "12-12-12" drink. And now it's late and I'm so tired...
But let's move on.
That's my same burgundy velvet top, grey jacket and shoes that I last wore together here with my wide-legged high-waisted pants. Not exactly creative, but I wanted to showcase this gorgeous wool plaid skirt. I like this outfit better.
here in September (scroll down and check out that vintage 70s label!). I paid $7.50 for it - such a score. I loved wearing it all day - the only thing that would make it better would be if it had pockets.
One thing that I didn't love wearing all day were these shoes. Arg, these are just too high for me to wear all day. However, I love them and I don't plan to get rid of them after this month's capsule, but they will move up into the "party shoes" section of my closet. Strangely the other Fluevogs that I have with this heel don't hurt my feet as much as these ones.
All day, I was singing Patty Griffin's "Burgundy Shoes" while I wore this. Do yourself a favour and listen to this YouTube clip (there's no video, so just listen). I am a big fan of hers, so I'm linking 'cause I love. It's a beautiful song about a little girl with burgundy shoes and her mom, riding the bus.
