You know it, you love it - Dress Week is back!
|Customized by me - the original stars Ava Gardner and is called "My Forbidden Past"|
For this week's Dress Week aka "My Forbidden Dress Week", I'll be featuring shoes that did not get worn in the 2012/2013 "30 For 30 for 12" Capsule Wardrobe Challenge.
And the dresses are not really forbidden, but I have a penchant for using movie titles (usually horror movies) for my Dress Weeks. You can check out some of my previous Dress Weeks here (scroll down to "Dress Weeks", duh) - I've been doing them since 2008, making this my 5th year! Holy moly, where does the time go?
Feel free to participate! Wear a dress this week!

I had a few compliments on the lovely robin egg blue of the dress with it. Who'd've thunk it? Such a unique colour mix and pattern.
I may have gone with a skinnier belt if I'd realized how short this skirt actually is! Yikes, I felt like Legs McGee at work all day (and yes, my legs are bare).
But let us now consider today's shoes, which I haven't worn since I found them in a thrift store back here in January for $18.50.
And I was right! They have broken in beautifully. I'll be wearing these a lot, I'm sure.
