black. blue.

It's definitely winter. All I want to wear is Uniqlo's Heattech layers under sweaters with an extra pair of socks. For Lindsay's birthday brunch back in December I wore this easy black and blue outfit to stay warm on the city streets. Though not quite as cold then as it is now, it was good practice for frigid days. It was also one of the first times I was able to wear actual heels since my accident in August and the first time I got to wear my new Vagabond boots outside of the house. Now that I'm a bit of an expert, my advice is that if you ever have a hip or a leg injury make sure you get rubber soled shoes, even high heels. The heel on these is sturdy but cushions your step on the sidewalks. As an added bonus, being able to lace them makes them even more comfortable when you can tighten and loosen them as needed.

ringing in 2015

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great night to ring in 2015. This year Rich and I went to Queens to have a fancy-dress slumber party with Remi and Sam. When we arrived there were multiple bottles of champagne to be drunk.

We had the most amazing take out tacos with champagne for dinner and a tostada for dessert.

Had on my vintage dress I bought with Sam about a hundred years ago at Loveday 31 and my new Vagabond boots. If you were curious, Rich had on Levi's from head to toe and a knit JCrew tie.

Keeping the lights low and settling in for the slumber party portion of the evening. We started by watching the wedding documentary episode that featured Sam and Remi, and moved on to Grand Theft Auto
