B and I decided to do "date night" on Saturday instead of going out with the crowd like we normally do.  Sounds like something that only happens on Real Housewives, but there's something to be said for spending quality time together every once in a while.  I deemed it an appropriate time to finally break out these magnificent Miu Miu carved wooden heels that I found online a while ago.  I'm sad to say I didn't wear them sooner.  Love them.  Want to wear them always.

Of all the bloggers I love, you are the one I always know will have the most kickass shoes. I mean, kickass to my taste. I think pretty much every pair you have, I want. Some of them I would even steal off you, and I say that in the kindest, gentlest way possible. :)

Here, you look so chic, put-together and expensive. Glorious!

The shoes are great - you get tons of height, but they don't look uncomfortable. Your locket is gorgeous, too.
