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.



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.


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:
