In short, my weekend was incredibly busy, but spectacular. I've still got miles to go before I sleep, but let's talk about so far. Friday night I had tickets to see one of my favorite musicals, "Spring Awakening". I got really good seats, but I forgot about the fact that they also have stage seating... so while I was there, I asked if there were any seats available on stage. There were two left, so my fella and I got to enjoy the show up close and personal. As a side note, I've seen this musical three times, so I knew all the words... but if you're not as versed, stage seating makes it a little hard to hear the singing because of the band playing so close.
This is the second time I've worn these pretty shoes. I've had them nearly three years, but the heel is so delicate (made of "specchio" leather -- kind of a rubbed metallic leather?) that I was scared to wear them. Having beautiful shoes that just sit in my closet seems so silly, so I've been trying to wear them in all their fabulousness more often.
The dress was a great sale find while shopping when my dear friend Cecilia was in town for a wedding. After wearing it though, I think I may see if I can remove the ridiculous shoulder pads. Ignore that my face looks like I'm melting.
Fit on the shoes can be found here, but as an update I will say that after two wearings these have stretched out quite a bit. These are a 36.5 and while the toe box was pretty tight when I got them and I worried about whether or not I needed to size up, I'm glad I did not.
