Time for something serious.
I have a dress! And I also have some shoes. But I'm not so very certain about the shoes.
But first, here's the dress:
It's a strapless, navy blue a-line with silver thread in the design across the bottom. I looked for navy strappy sandals for four months, and guess what?
They don't exist.
So I decided to go with silver. And here's where I need some help.
I already bought these:
But I saved the receipt, because these are coming in the mail tomorrow:
Don't worry, I get free return shipping if I choose to send them back. (confidential to Zappos.com: Liz + Zappos = LOVE 4 EVA) (+ BFF!!!!!)
So, whaddayathink? I realize that to give you a truly accurate picture of the ensemble I should take pictures of myself wearing the dress and both pairs of shoes, but my husband isn't here to play photographer and I don't have any full-length mirrors.
(I know! How do I ever know that I look okay from the waist down?)
(my dog tells me. he's generous with the compliments and harsh when he needs to be, and I love him for it.)
So help me out. Please. It has to be one or the other, due to fast-approaching deadline, and I'm at a total loss. The rejected pair will be returned immediately, because I also bought these totally unnecessary black heels just because my husband loves high heels that have ankle straps and a tiny little back to them. And because he's a good man, I like to surprise him:
And now, friends, it's time for the Little Shoe of Horrors. Avert your eyes if you have a weak stomach.
A couple of weeks ago I purchased this velvet blazer in chocolate brown from a catalog:
I bought a pair of matching shoes from the same catalog, because they looked adorable on the model.
Okay, here are the shoes:
Not so bad, right? A 2-inch wedge heel with a faux flower on the toe. Cute!
(is it just me?)
Alex goes in for a closer look and almost impales his eyeball on the gigantic, phallic stamen:
"BUTT UGLY. Not to mention dangerous."
Thanks, Boo. I'm sending them back tomorrow, minus free return shipping. Bah.
