My blogger friends Jean and Valerie (otherwise known as The Idiosyncratic Fashionistas) sent me these cool comic strip patterned arm warmers. They were socks in their original incarnation, but the IF's envisioned them as funky sleeves to cover my ugly black wrist guards that I have to wear at work, so I cut the toes off the socks and voila! (they didn't run because they are a tight-knit polyester/nylon blend) I've been wearing them more often outside of work than at work, and I like how they add some snap to a solid colour t-shirt.
Even though I love the colour, I hadn't worn this thrifted red leather skirt for a couple of years because it was originally a very unflattering below-the-knee length. I decided to chop it off and now it's much more "me".t-shirt - The Gap

I am wearing heels! The pain in my right foot that has been plaguing me for months seems to be here to stay, and I have been wearing flats since it started, leaving my beloved pink ankle boots, and these El Naturalista ankle straps, to languish in the back of the closet. I decided to live dangerously and risk possible discomfort, but was pleasantly surprised when I was able to wear them for several hours before I had to change to flats again. They have a thickly cushioned insole and chunky rubber sole, so they are about as comfortable a heel as you can get. I've missed my "Girl Shoes".....
