take this day into the night

TNA sweater, eBay blouse, Club Monaco skirt and socks, Mackage jacket, Banana Republic purse, Michael Kors watch, Jeffrey Campbell shoes

Is everyone sick to death of these shoes yet? I honestly thought that I had gotten over the blocky, insane platform Lita fad until I finally tried on a pair and realized why they are so loved. Much to my surprise, these are probably more comfortable than my more sensible heels. Anyway, I'll save you the boredom and torture of having to read about another blogger raving about how amazing these shoes are. I'm sure y'all are cringing just having to see them again.

My last day of work before my "vacation" (its technically a faux-cation as I'm expected to be studying at least 8 hours a day for two weeks) is tomorrow. And while that should signal confetti and loud dance music, I've been put on a form of academic probation, the whole concept of which is so totally foreign to me. This is all a roundabout way of saying that yes, its going to officially be the holidays but in reality I will be burying my head in three binders full of multiple choice questions. Try not to be too envious.

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

Those shoes are so gorgeous. I've been lusting after a pair like those for the longest time!

Pretty skirt also. It looks so delicate and dainty, but I like how you paired it with a tough leather jacket.

Nina said...
