Purple Shoes.

I found a dress last night at Ross Dress for Less. I love Ross for new bargain shopping. The dress was cheap, like $11 cheap (so well under my $20 guilty spend). I got it home and tried it on and it fit perfectly and planned to wear it today.

I got up this morning and realized I had NO idea what shoes to pair with it. I could go with black, but that would be overwhelming. I could always go with beige, but that seems like such a compromise. Then I remembered I had some purple heels. I rummaged around and found them and they matched perfectly.

So kudos to me for (1) remembering I had purple heels, (2) finding them in less than 30 seconds, and (3) that heels I bought 2 years ago and have never worn match a dress I bought last night.

I may never wear them again because they’re not that comfortable, but I think I look pretty good for the moment!

(Dear Grace, sorry for the toes.)

(Dear readers, sorry for the awkward picture, but wanted you to see the dress.)

    I’m with Grace on the toes. hee! But, they are hardly apparent AND you’re wearing purple, which in my eyes, makes up for all the feet! πŸ˜‰ Those are some heels! You must be at least 6’5 in them? πŸ˜‰

    • Oh, yes, purple! One of the best colors in the color palette! Purple can fix most anything. Honestly, I didn’t even think about how tall I was in them… probably 6’3″? hehe

  2. I love that dress! Looking FAB dahling~!

  3. lol. very cute! (despite the toes. hehe.) well, it wasn’t that bad. i barely saw the toes. hehe. πŸ˜€ i’ve been a little more tolerant of feet now that i have a kid, though. as long as i’m not being touched with feet, it’s mostly okay. hehe. you look great! πŸ˜€

    • I worked very hard to angle that picture to minimize the impact of the toes JUST FOR YOU! ha
      Kid toes are different than grown up toes, you do have to admit. hehe


  4. You look fabulous! I love the dress and the shoes! You do realize, now that you’re a mom, you’re going to wear heels less and less right? My wife used to wear shoes like that all the time and now lives in flats.

    • Thank you! I guess we’ll see about the shoes… I’ve always been a dress-up for work kind of gal, so I’m not sure I’ll be giving that up anytime soon. Also, I don’t mind heels as long as they’re well made and comfortable, and I *do* have a few pairs that fit that bill. PLUS, Tony is 6’6″ and God knows how tall William will end up being, so I have to keep up, you know? hehe
