I have problems. Big fat problems. I ordered these shoes, because I honestly just wanted to touch them, but that's very much like going to the animal shelter and saying you're just going to pet the puppies and kittens, but not bring one home. Needless to say, the shoes now have a home. Damnit.

Ok, I know I've gone hog wild with the bike shorts, but they just seem to have endless possibilities! This was another dress that had a tendency to go all Marilyn-Monroe-on-the-air-vent at inopportune times, but now the bike shorts have freed me from skirt-flipping anxiety. I should start a support group or something.

Major thanks to Daddylikey for the shout out. I'm such a fan of her sartorial musings, so you can imagine my surprise to hear she's a fan of my blog, as well.

  3. you pull off bike shorts in such a sophisticated way! and really, if i ordered shoes "just to touch them," i *know* i would never give them back. to a cold, lonely warehouse somewhere? i just couldn't. ;)

    those shoes are killer. they look all tough...if that makes sense. haha. like if you put it beside a simple pump, those shoes would destroy the simple pump...anyways, lol. love the overall look.

  42. Hahaha omg E, your "I have problems" comments made me laugh :) Shoes are always problematic, right? Gotta make room in the closet for them!
