Well I am back from Montreal and I can surely say that I missed my
little blog. I will be posting pics from the trip soon. Remember how I
like to take a week or so to digest a trip? And Montreal is no
exception....I saw so many amazing things and I look forward to sharing
These pics were taken before I left. Jerrmaner and I stumbled upon this amazing graffiti on Broadway in Denver. Isn't it magnificent?! Oh how I love great street art! Wow, Denver...could it be true? You are actually becoming a cool city?!
Jerrmaner and I discovered this lovely area close to our homes. This is about as close to being in nature as I can be. Seems crazy, I know, but something about me hanging out in the mountains seems very awkward...as in, I actually look awkward in the mountains. This particular location is the perfect combination of city and nature; and therefore, my Prada pumps and I felt completely at home.
P.S. It's not everyday I attempt to scale rocks in heels, but these lovely shoes are like my sneakers. They are super cozy and make walking in the summer heat a snap.
It has been so hot in Denver lately that I don't even consider wearing jewelry...as few items as possible, please! On this particular evening, I opted for a Zara dress that I purchased in Switzerland. It is quite possible that this "dress" is a tunic that I am wearing as a dress....wouldn't be the first time this has happened...I mean, what can I say? I'm short, so this type of devious behavior is something that I can easily pull off.
Voila! They are here...the shoe of the year! Feeling so lucky that I was able to score a pair of these beauties on sale. I was practically salivating when I saw them on the runway, but seeing them in person actually took my breath away. Oh, Miuccia Prada...you truly can do no wrong.
Wearing my Marc Jacobs glittered beauties. I haven't ever successfully worn these shoes out...I could, of course, but it would require lots of ibuprofen or at least the help of a strong dude like Jerrmaner, who would have to carry me for most of the night (both very doable options).
Also wearing an Ashley O'Rourke skirt that I purchased way back when I was a young sprout. Yes, I could wear it as a skirt too...but turning long skirts into dresses has become one of my favorite pastimes.
and I attended a wedding this past weekend at Red Rocks. It just
happened to be the same night that Bassnectar was playing
there...holla! (Stupid I know, but just seemed oh so necessary...in fact, I don't even know what that means.)
Anyways...I know that there's a lot rules when it comes to wedding attire, but again I believe that you shouldn't think about it too much. As long as you don't try to wear white, you're good. White is something for the bride only...at least give her that...I mean it is her special day and all. As far as wearing black to a wedding, I see absolutely nothing wrong with it and I can say that I wear black to 95% of the weddings that I attend.
In fact, the odds of me wearing black to my own are pretty good.
All in all, it was a fun night....Bassnectar, some of the best wedding cake that I have ever tasted and yes...a dramatic Foley + Corinna dress to top it all off.
Ohhh, the mullet cut clothing trend...how I love thee. Something about having extra material blowing behind me just makes me giddy! I found this particular top at a local boutique calledCommon Era.
The pants you have seen before and the shoes...well...the shoes are something entirely special. I was worried that I wouldn't even get these...I mean they sold out everywhere in a matter of days (like I said before, it's been a very competitive shoe season). Luckily, I was able to place a pre-order for a pair from Neiman Marcus. Seriously...my life was a lot less expensive prior to the success of Alexander Wang. Seems like every season, I want at least several pairs of his runway shoes. Can you blame me?! The dude does no wrong and has made looking "effortlessly chic" oh-so-easy.
P.S. Kinda having a Mr. T moment with all the arm glitz. Nothing wrong with going overboard with jewelry...don't fear it, embrace it.
