Audience Participation Friday (it's been too long!)... Shoes!

I hope everyone had a great, long holiday weekend. And second most important to remembering our fallen soldiers, I hope everyone took advantage of some deal-laden holiday shopping.

Since it's been WAY too long since the last Audience Participation Friday, the special installment will return this Friday!

For this week's APF, send pictures of your favorite new shoes or favorite summer shoes by Thursday night 9ish. Include the brand, where you bought 'em... and if you have the info and/or feel so inclined, include the price and style name. E-mail me at

Here's a sneak peek at the shoes I picked up this weekend...

Taking a Risk: <$50 Outfit Post

Every time I wear white, I take a serious risk. I am the most coffee spilling, makeup smearing, accidental pen writing person that I know!

I feel a little less nervous about ruining white clothing when I pay under $10 for it...

  • Orange/red lucite necklace: eBay ($8)... I always have fun searching "costume jewelry" on eBay
  • Black tank: Old Navy ($5)
  • Black elastic/art deco belt: Salvation Army from ~6 years ago ($2)
  • White lace skirt: Marietta, GA, Goodwill ($5)
  • Black buckle pumps: $20 Fitzwell (
  • TOTAL: $40
Forgive the pumps — wore this to work today with a little 3/4 sleeve jacket over top.

On a side note, I think my camera takes fine photos outside (like these) — but the indoor ones are awful. Can't wait 'til I have a better camera! This is hint #4 or 5.
