Dressember #3 and Shoe Challenge #64

Day #3, and the dress had to wait until night-time to come out and play.

I wore this to celebrate Little Brother’s 13th birthday.  We went out to a delicious dinner, and I will give more detail on that in a later post.

This also happens to fall in my sub-catagory of Party Dress #1.  I am curious to see how many party dresses I will end up wearing this season.

The dress is a Jones Wear Dress that I found at JC Penney.

I wanted to show the back, because The Husband really likes how this dress looks from the back. 🙂

These are my Christian Louboutin NIB Pumps.  I am so glad to have been able to “save” these last night. I love the low side cut on these.  I have not worn them with tights before, and I enjoyed how that turned out.

Dressember #2 and Shoe Save #63

Hello fellow Dressember dressers!  Today is a good example of why I am attempting to do this challenge.  This is a dress that I was feeling bored with.  I was even thinking about letting it go, but once I knew I was going to try to wear 31 dresses this month, I thought better of it.

See more dresses here.

This is the dress on it’s own.  It is not a bad dress, I was just feeling tired of it.  I like it so much more with a bit of styling.

Bing had to make sure he was alright with my jewelry choices for today. 😉

Here is a close-up of the shoes if you care for that sort of thing.  🙂 They are a Nike G Series by Cole Haan.  Comfy!!

Dressember Day 1 and Shoe Save # 63

Wow!  Is it already December?  And… am I really wearing a belt over a cardigan?  I feel so clever about that idea, as it is not something I normally do.  I am also happy to be wearing a dress that I would usually save for a dress up event, but I just thought, “Hey, self, wear your dresses on even casual days.”

To see more dresses, visit the Dressember Facebook page.

The shoes are an old pair of Via Spigas that are just plain great.  I can wear them dressy or casual and they never seem to hurt my feet.

Here is the dress with different shoe ideas and options, and a close-up of the shoes.

Shoe Save #62 – Stuart Weitzman Black Boots

These are my favorite boots!  They rock because they are stretch suede, and that makes them have the unique ability to fit over my huge calves.  I say “huge” not to be down on myself, but simply to note the fact that I can barely ever find a boot that will zip up over my calf.  It makes me wonder, every time, “Is it me, or is it the boot?”

These boots are by Stuart Weitzman, and I wore them to church and out to lunch.

Shoe Challenge #60 – Gold Christian Louboutins

Wow! I am so glad to have made it to Shoe Save #60.  To recognise this small milestone, I thought I would post my gold Christian Louboutins I wore the other night to a holiday party for some people from The Husband’s work.

These photos are from the end of the night, so my feet were very tired and a bit swolen.  Oh, well, a great pair of shoes helps any situation. 😉

Inspiration Monday and Shoe Challenge # 59 – Kelly Rippa & Black Pour La Victorie

Hello reader(s)! 😉

I am doing double duty with this post today.  This will be for Inspiration Monday at the TwoBirds blog and it will be a shoe save for the Shoeper Shoe Challenge at the Shoeperwoman blog.

Once again, I seem to be inspired by the colors that our “stars” have been wearing.  I went for the yellow top with a blazer look.  I am happy with what I ended up wearing.  I went to church and to lunch with the family.

Here is the original photo of Kelly Rippa.

I love her jeans in this picture, but since I was going to church, I chose to wear slacks instead.  (Is that word cool?  Slacks?  I felt like such a grandma writing that just now…)

The shoes are Pour La Victorie.

All photos posed and shot by Big Brother today. 🙂  Good work bud!

Shoe Challenge #57 – Black Patent Wedges

 Another shoe save for the Shoeper Shoe Challenge.

This is the first of two or three “clog” shoe saves I will be posting.  This time of year in San Diego is the perfect weather for clog wearing.  We get some rain, and I like to continue to wear my longer jeans but not wreck any “nice” shoes in the water.

I love wearing these shoes.  They are warm and comfy and they keep the hems of my jeans dry. 🙂

I can not share the designer of these shoes with you, however, because I do not know what/who it is.  The shoes are about seven years  old, and have no markings on them except the size.  I am sad about that because these would be a pair I wouldn’t mind replacing when they get to retirement age.

I wore this outfit out “hunting” for a new pair of jeans.

Shoe Challenge #56 – Marc Jacobs Metallic

Here is a quick shoe post.

I wore these out today taking Little Brother to the eye doctor and then to the grocery store.

The shoes are Marc By Marc Jacobs.  I think they have the best color.  They are somewhat between gold and silver.  I’m not even sure what to call it.. maybe Gilver, or Sold??? 😉
