Friend or Foe

I've always thought of flats as a sort of staple in the wardrobes of the conservative and demure; those for whom high heels are considered 'special occassion' shoes, and most certainly not day wear. I understand that for many women, the issue is comfort- nothing more and nothing less so I'm speaking only for myself when I say that walking out the door in anything less than three inches is the equivalent of being bare foot, or worse yet, naked!

Which brings me to a couple of weekends ago, when the boy and I decided to peruse the racks at It's A Wrap. I don't know if it was the ombre, the reptile skin, the metallic, or the rose gold hardware, but something about the excess coaxed the love-to-hate relationship I have with flats right out of me- by way of my wallet.

Now, it's been three weeks since I took the plunge and I still haven't worn them but this Sunday's brunch-date might be their golden hour. I'm thinking of pairing a simple black romper with a black lace cardigan and something tells me that the shimmering wild of these flats might just be the light I need.

Rose Colored Glasses

Happy Valentines Day, Lovelies!! This weekend has been MOST fantastic in every way. The weather has been amazing, I attended the first annual LA Street Food Fest yesterday (photos to come) and I'm currently indulging in a plate of banana pancakes as I share these words.

The second week of February has been good to me. Dine LA, otherwise known as Restaurant Week, kicked it off- followed by a friends Birthday celebration and a couple of very enjoyable lunches last week at Sawtelle Kitchen and Bar Hayama. Given the Blessing of time well spent, I'm actually feeling peace about being one of the few people who has to be at work tomorrow. . .

It took me several weeks to commit to the thick, horizontal, black and white stripes on this most comfortable sweater dress. Fortunately the peaks and valleys have since softened it for me.

The Air Up There

Being one of the few people who prefers a cold-weather getaway to a warm one, I was elated when I got a chance to sneak off to Lionshead Village in Vail, Colorado last week. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so the photos I took with my Blackberry will have to do. It was sunny, the sky was clear and the air was clean. I can't wait to go back.

Departures & Arrivals

Good Morning! First of February 2010, already? It seems that the Holidays are farther behind us than a mere five weeks and I'll be the first to admit denial at the very thought of having burned through the first month of the new year so quickly. In any case, I did manage to slip away and rid myself of the funk I was in. *Photos to follow soon*

Late flight last night so I'm working from home today. I have a few things to get caught up on and hope to make it to the dry cleaners, post office and bank before the lunch-hour masses descend so I'd better get moving. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :)
