Actually, I haven't worn these for the past two weeks because it has been way too bloody hot (and humid). I've been fine for the most part because I'm off work and have been avoiding bending. Then for one foolish moment I did the unthinkable for someone who is suppose to wear knee braces.
I wore heels.
Or maybe it was because I came across these lovely previously loved Anne Klein sandals that I thought I would try one more time.
They have a three inch heel. I didn't get very far before they starting hurting. My knees took a beating all in the name of fashion and this evening I'm paying for it.
And now I'm thinking about doing the unthinkable (again). No, I'm not going to wear them again. I'm going... to... cut them. I was having a difficult time with the realization that I really must get rid of them before I am seduced back into extreme foolishness and try to wear these three inch heels. And then it occurred to me that these leather straps might be re-fashioned into another project. Sew, that is why they are on my cutting table.

And a pair of one inch heeled black shoes that would put a granny to sleep. It was perfect.
Until I was asked to come back the next morning. Darn, I had nothing to wear was my initial reaction. I opted for the green Rachel Comey skirt and the Angel shirt. Not as conservative as the first outfit but it was the most conservative thing that I could wear that was ironed and wouldn't cause me to melt in the heat and humidity.
I need more business-friendly clothes after working at a school for the past five years my wardrobe has become way too casual and fun. I certainly couldn't wear this Vogue shirt or this one. I really need to reassess my wardrobe choices that are hanging in the closet. I picked up a couple of Burda blouse patterns and some white cotton / polyester fabric so that I can add a classic white shirt. How do I not have one of those? Oh yeah, I thought they were boring. Well, no more. I need to balance out my wardrobe with some
