Shoe Straps

I'm sort of in blogger limbo right now.  It's possible that my camera has been located by the cab company (grand sigh of relief), but I won't celebrate until it is safely in my possession once again.  And who knows how long that could take. 

Until then, I have to work with what I have.  It's not much, but there are a few posts in the pipeline that will hold us over for a little while.  I wore this outfit a few weeks ago and really loved it.  First, because it's pink and brown.  It's the color combination that gets me in a girly, shabby-chic kind of mood and makes me think of my wedding.


I also have a new appreciation for these shoes.  They're the ones I was referring to when I said I love the Madden Girl brand.  They were a whim of a purchase at DSW a long time ago and are rarely featured...which is sad.  They have a nice, chunky heel and are quite comfortable.  Ankle straps aren't typical for me.  I prefer to have that elongating leg line down to my toes - the kind of visual effect that is most likely viewed sans-straps.  But I do believe I'm venturing back over to the strappy side, even if it isn't the most flattering.  Straps can be fun too.  "Give straps a chance!" the voices in my head cry out to me as I save yet another shoe to my endless cart.
