Weird to think that I've had this sweater for so many months but never thought to debut it on my blog. It's undoubtedly the best knit I've got in my wardrobe -- woven with silver strings, dress-length, loose, and accented by a boat neck. I've worn it a million times on days when I couldn't be bothered to think of an outfit theme. Maybe this sweater is a cop-out for me, but what's so wrong with needing an off day to recoup your inspiration? I like the flexibility my sweater provides, both physically and creatively. I can wear it with shorts and boots or a polka dot collar, cropped leggings, and loafers. If you're gonna look comfy and care-free, may as well do it with some sassy metallic threads.

PAUSE EVERYTHING. I have a terrible habit of expressing myself overzealously when I receive a new pair of shoes, probably because I'm subconsciously a shoe hoarder who casually pretends to have zero dependence on wearable possessions. The problem with my constant gushing over new shoes and dresses and wrist cuffs is that you can't actually tell when I'm legitimately DYING over how amazing some garment is. Kind of like the Boy Who Cried Wolf, except for me there's no tragic outcome except you guys rolling your eyes and saying "yup, I'm sure you're reaaaaally fading in and out of consciousness because that detachable collar is so great." Tragic, because I really do genuinely fade in and out of consciousness when a spankin' new detachable collar enters my life. Like a child, or pet, or sexy movie star boyfriend. So I wanted to present a disclaimer today about my hyperbolic enthusiasm to prepare you for the fact that OH MY GOD THESE SHOES ARE REALLY SERIOUSLY THE BEST THINGS EVER ASDFLKJASLFJSADL;ALSDFJLASDJ I LOVE THEM BEYOND VERBAL EXPRESSION!!!!!! To you, they seem totally average, but to me... they open up five hundred million new doors to summer outfit ideas. Finally, I can wear outfits like Madeline's here and Jessica's here.
I hope you love them as much as I do. They've got a tough sole (like me! Get it??) a platform heel, and a subtle buckle for tying all the metal accents together. Forever indebted to you, Yes Style, for making these black bootie beauties available to me!! Black bootie beauties... great, can't wait for that annoyingly catchy phrase to be stuck in my head all FREAKIN DAY LONG *line on EKG monitor goes flat as I fall to the floor* (9 times out of 1o I can be summoned out of cardiac arrest by someone holding a yogurt parfait under my nose. Chewy bars -- the new chicken wings.)
Everything is infinite,
