Trying on shoes

Had some free time to kill and stopped in Famous Footwear one day last week.  I spent a good 2 hours trying on shoes.  Took pics of these cause for a good thirty minutes, I thought I wanted them.



Steve Madden p-roxi in blush

I was contemplating these for a while because of the light rose color and the rise of the heel.
I didn't get them though. I still might go back, I have to marinate on the shape of the toe some more.Yeah, I don't think I like them anymore. I don't think I'm going back for them they did hurt my pinkie toes.  DECISIONS

Had to try on sandals to keep me enthused for the "Yes We Can" warm up that's coming sometime in the near eventually:

 Still wearing my thrifted cord military jacket that I got from the thrift store. Scarves are NY&Co / TJ Maxx. And the military skinnies are Old Navy. Wedge boots are from Sheikh Shoes.

yay. football.

That was sarcasm.  Can't say that I enjoy watching football too all.  But what I do think is exciting about football is the commentary before, after, and during 1/2 time.....also cocktails. Hello.  But on a serious note, I have been fixated on men's  hairpieces.  Football commentators have some of the best toupees in the TV business next to news anchors and weather men.  They beg to be touched, prodded, and inspected....and stared at sometimes. 
Women's weaves aren't as interesting as toupees because I have weaves figured out for the most part.  Still trying to figure out the art of a good lacefront wig though.  Anyway!  Hair weave quality, skill and technique of the hair stylist are usually easy for me to look at and determine what look the weaver wearer was going for. Toupees are fascinating to me because with all of the advancements in hair weave technology, the men have don't have comparable access to quality hair pieces. 

If anything, I'm a hair weave weave fan. And the below pics are evidence:

Happy New Year World.



Had a pineapple and ? martini to bring in the new year with a homie. If anyone can eyeball this glass and remind me what kind of martini this is, I'd totally appreciate it. We had a good time.
 Had been craving cheese and bread for a little while so I made it happen.  Had some pizza and hooved it to Navy Pier.  It was FIFTY degrees in January so I figured why not. I needed to walk off some of this anyhow:



Chicago is so beautiful when the weather is agreeable!  I mean really.

Check out the layers.
The highlight of my outfit is under all of the coats I have on.
BAM! Just wore it with a fitted T and some wedge boots and kept it moving. 

Old etsy purchase.
