I was out of town.
And maybe shopping (a little).
There is an "Outlet Mall" halfway between Austin & San Antonio. We all know that there is rarely anything "outlet" about "outlet malls" but that doesn't keep me from stopping.
I WISH I had photos of the 100% silk dress I got at Jones of New York for $10! Or the LINED suit -- $45! And the white patent leather open toe pumps -- $19!
Did I say white? I meant cream. I mean bone.
OK. You caught me. I bought white pumps.
I SWORE up & down I would never buy white pumps. They're so. . .tacky.
My friend Christy & I used to amuse ourselves for hours by people guessing the profession based on the outfit.
Shapeless grey suit, no makeup & flats? Attorney. Maybe accountant.
Loose t-shirt, broomstick skirt and birkenstocks? Teacher.
Dockers & an oxford? Engineer.
And our favorite? Big hair, black hose, white pumps. RECEPTIONIST!
Now Christy is a stay at home mom. She still looks like a million bucks. And her clothes are very casual. . .but so pulled together.
And I bought a pair of white pumps.
But they're CUTE pumps.
And I PROMISE not to wear them with black hose.
