young hearts spark fire

I remember wanting a pair of t-straps when I was in junior high and never finding the right pair.  The dream soon faded and I moved on, until the day I saw these babies.  That early infatuation was rekindled in my heart when I saw that lovely pointy toe again, and then the wonderful pink satin draping in the back appealed to the older, wiser me.  Ah young love, is there anything like it?

This outfit was for my buddy, F's birthday dinner at Ray's: The Steaks on Friday.  That place never lets me down.  I got the Brazilian Strip Steak and it was insanely delicious.  Wine list isn't half bad either.

  10. Goodness girl, that color of red is gorgeous on you! And satin pink wedges? Those shoes are magnificent. Also shame on you for always making me crave a glass of wine and a big hunk of red meat when I should really be slaving over my student's papers.

  67. Those shoes are beyond amazing and beautiful! What a great buy! I know if I owned them I'd be deathly afraid of puddles, grass, basically anything that would soil them. But that's what scotch guard is for! Anyways, Ray's: The Steaks sounds devine. I'll have to check it out next time I'm in DC.
