Pounding Pavement

(Urban blazer, Gilt Groupe top, Joie leather skirt, Matt Bernson boots, Vintage Versace bag)

Skirts and HEELS...rarely does this happen. I thought I'd bring out the "i'm taller than you" girly girl I was born to be, naturally. But really, I don't think I've worn heels (on purpose) let alone exposed bare legs in months. It's just been too cold! Cali warmth has allowed me to reveal all though hehe. I pounded the pavement in killer booties, one super cool leather skirt, and a furry blazer that could pass as something made from an old carpet. Dressed as if I were ready for a late night dance party, I was actually more content making my way around your cul-de-sac.
