Thank God it’s Friday. I just got back to Minnesota two days ago because school opens back up on Monday. Sigh. I almost missed my flight though because somehow I thought it was booked later than it actually was. My mother had been harassing me to check and see the specific date I was leaving and when I checked, I saw that I’d be leaving the following day. #ThankGodForMother.
Anyway, I have some new shoes to show you. I got a thang for chunky heels so I purchased these Pleated Cut-Out Platform shoes from gojane.com. They also come in black and mint green and I actually bought the mint green last summer, but that version of the shoe did not have pleats (click here to see the outfit I wore with them). They’re definitely not winter friendly (at least not Minnesota winter), but I did not want to wait because the mint green version of these are among my closet faves and of course they won’t be there when the weather is more appropriate. Besides, when parties roll around, it’s amazing the things I’ll wear, and the cold I’ll endure, just too look good.
I know that for some people these shoes are a lot to take in, but I’m extra like that 🙂 Meanwhile, I’m in the process of editing my senior thesis…#LordHelpMe
Until Next Time,
Her name is Leena, and she is the latest addition to my shoe collection. Altogether now “Hi Leena!”. The story: I was on Facebook minding my own business when I saw an advertisement for Sole Society, an online shoe store. The shoe featured was a leopard print and pink sandal that resembled the Zara sandal, and I lost it. After exploring the shoes on the website, I settled on these boots because they were more practical, appropriate for the weather, and thought they were just so damn classy. I had to have them. I’m also really into this leather trend as of late because as I”m graduating next year, I’m trying incorporate more mature pieces into my wardrobe. They’re called the “Aster Ankle Bootie” and they come in taupe, black, and charcoal (which features blue suede that I’m just now seeing as I bought these shoes a few weeks ago). The black is sold out, except for size 8 and most of the sizes in the other colors are still available.
I’m really proud of this purchase because they are my first shoes that are genuine leather and genuine suede. These are also my first pair of booties! I feel like a fashion grown-up and I’m content.
p.s. When I buy something, I immediately pin it to my “what’s in my closet” board on Pinterest. Check it out!
