trying something new

I’ve decided to finally give Dresslily a chance because I had to have these dresses:

Even with expedited shipping, the total cost was $49.

The catch? They’re made in Asia, and so the sizing can run super small. I actually measured my waist and ordered accordingly. I had to order one to two sizes larger than my normal size.

The reviews were all positive. I’m excited!

walking in my shoes

I just ordered my first pair of Tieks. (I say first because I already have my eye on the pop pink pair, which will be mine if I end up liking the pair I just ordered.) I bought this pair in obsidian black, because I love the patent black and the croc imprint combined. Matte black just seemed very boring by comparison.

I’m super excited for them to get here. They are pricey, I know, but I’ve read so many good reviews. Eek!! So excited. There are sooooo many color/print choices. I could see myself becoming obsessed.

Speaking of shoes, I recently saw that Keds has a new line that was designed by Kate Spade. There are a pair of silver glitter Keds with white ribbon laces that are super adorable. They’re only $95. I’m considering ordering them, though I just don’t know how often I’d actually wear them. I’m not really a Keds girl. I don’t typically rock the tennis shoe look. I know with certainty that I would wear a pair of silver glitter Tieks, however. Besides, you can’t wear Keds to court. Well you could, I suppose, (I once saw a female attorney wearing Crocs in court, istg), but eww.

Oh and speaking of cute shoes: I have an absolutely adorable pair of pale pink Mary Jane heels that I am dying to wear, but I need this fucking rain to stop already.  I’ve been living in my $20 black wedges (from Payless) recently because those things are basically indestructible.

I could keep talking about shoe fashion forever. I love, love, love shoes.

I recently had a male colleague comment on my stiletto heels and ask why women wear shoes like that just to impress men. I laughed, and informed him that, if I’m trying to impress anyone, it’s definitely other women, not men. Men don’t know shit about cute shoes.

$280

for two dresses, two blazers, and an envelope clutch. All from Nordstrom. Not bad, Jenn. Not bad.

Gotta build up that work wardrobe. I’m going to be in a lot of courtrooms over the next several months.

Shoppy

Yesterday, I had several packages waiting for me when I got home. Mostly clothes, which I immediately tried on. It was one of those rare and glorious moments where it was all perfect. Everything fit. Everything looked really cute.

I bought two Maurine dresses (LuLaRoe) and omg they are so cute. D walked in while I had one on and immediately started complimenting me. I’m going to wear it out for our dinner date tomorrow night. We’re going to our new favorite restaurant/winery.

The Modcloth stuff was really cute, too. Especially my new hat. I already have plans to wear it to Microfest.

Now I’m in the market for a new jacket. I have my eye on this one:

I’m also looking at some spring style shoes. These will probably be happening:
