My new skirt --

I don't wear jeans -- but I love how versatile denim is -- so my goal for the year was to find a denim skirt.  I already have 1 denim skirt but it's pencil cut -- and not that flattering on me.  (But I still wear it.)

When I found this skirt on Etsy, I didn't hesitate to get it.

It's a denim full skirt -- and my sister describes it as having a life of it's own.  I love it.  I love the 50s vibe. ^_^

I got it from a Polish seller and that's an extra thrill for me to have something made by someone living in a place I would never be able to visit. ^_^

Her Etsy shop is here.

Gold on my feet --

I wrote about these shoes last December as part of my Christmas wishlist -- but I've had my eye on them since I first saw them online months before that --

I hesitated buying them -- gold shoes are not really the most practical pair of shoes to buy -- and I'm a Crocs Prima in Cotton Candy Pink girl.  (I have been living in this model of shoes for the past 4 years.)

I decided to take the plunge on my birthday -- and ordered myself a pair.

The wonderful people at We Are All Soleil were very efficient in sending out my order -- and a few days later, I was wearing my gold shoes.

And I wore them for 3 weeks straight -- I wore them to church and when I was dropping off my kids at school; I wore them to the bank and when I went to Globe to ask something from Customer Service.

When my dad first saw them on my feet, he said, "Your shoes are gold." -- to which I replied, "Yes, they are."

And I am so, so happy to have this pair of shoes.  I like seeing them on my feet.  And I wear them with everything!

Like having my own private disco~
I love it best when the light hits the shoes and the sequins reflect the light -- it's whimsy and magic -- and gold!
