Last night as the thunder and lightening shook and lit up my whole apartment, I needed to keep my mind busy. Its not that I dont like it, I actually do, but when it is that loud and bright, it can be just that little bit scary. I decided to think about what to wear to work. Of course, shoes were on my mind given the challenge put forth by a colleague to wear every pair of shoes in my closets.
I thought black dress was simple enough given I had no idea what the weather would be like and added to that I was meeting friends for dinner. Anything goes with black and it is very easy.
I searched high above my shelves and low down on the racks as well as the pile of shoes I have under my bed. I found these little black and white satin Joey O’s in a random shoe box that had nothing to do with the shoes. I do remember buying them and I believe it was actually at Marshall’s or DSW. If memory serves me, my friend Lauren was looking in there at lunch time and noticed a pair of size fives. She immediately called me and I immediately ran out of my office and made the purchase. That was about six years ago. I have worn them multiple times but had forgotten about them for the last few years.
Well, today is the day to wear them again. They do pinch a little bit (maybe a lot) but they are adorable. I am wearing my black dress and layers of fun pearls. I feel very vintage and a bit Jackie O in my Joey O’s. Perhaps I will wear them again once my new blisters heals a little.
