That’s as good as it gets, my friends. Me and my milk-white skin, glowing in my purdy brown, definitely not a day dress. It’s also a good peek at my new ‘do, which as one party guest put it “…is just an edgier version of the before.” Me?! Edgy?! Whoda’ thunk it?!
Since you can’t see our feet, yes, we’re all wearing heels. Aileen and I really are just that much shorter than our tall friends. And my dress was just above the knee; I don’t know where my legs were going! I really did look good that night. I think the only things I’d change would be my necklace and shoes.
I wore a simple yellow gold and diamond heart pendant. I think I’d like to find something like this to wear next time with this dress:
Shoes. I wore the dark brown suede pumps from my own rehearsal dinner outfit. Keep in mind that makes the shoes more than 12 years old. They looked fine, but they lacked the support and comfort I’ve come to expect, even in heels. I might scoot out to Target today and see if they still have these:
And now you know the rest of the story, as they say…
The above shoes are “online only” at Target. The lovely Marjie, who introduced me to these shoes in the first place, has confirmed that they are comfy (trust me, that busy woman is on her feet and shares my post-surgical back) and run true to size. I also ordered some shoes very similar to the fab plaid wedge I coveted last summer, since the shoes were buy one, get one 50% off. This is my first Target online experience, and I’m shocked to share that I was able to log in with my Amazon account, AND still got their “bullseye” free shipping with a $50 ($50.47, if you must know) order. Yet somehow, at checkout I only paid $44 something. Love me a bargain, and if it arrives before it’s too cold to wear sandals, I’ll be a very happy Target online shopper.
See… podunk’s Target is a full 40 minutes from me. You do the math. With free shipping, I was already money ahead. Add in the other discount – I think they let me have free shipping THEN applied the buy one get one 1/2 off deal? – and I’m on cloud nine. Doesn’t make up for the impulse buys at Sammy Snacks today, but… hem.
Ironically, a trip back in time finds that the similar plaid wedge from Target last year seemed to be the impetus for my fashion blogging. I’ve told you before, I’m a prep at heart. Some women swoon for silk, cashmere, the turn of a collar or what have you, but this lifelong prepster is mad for plaid.
