maniac

it’s wintery mix-ing here in chicago.  ick.  BUT!  tomorrow is friday!  hoorah.  times a thousand.

french connection embellished shoulder sweater dress | eggplant tights from target | metallic belt from target | brian atwood maniac pumps | michael kors rose gold chronograph watch | michael kors glass bracelet | forever 21 black pyramid bracelet | j crew gold and rose tone jeweled bracelet

according to reviews on the internetz, these pumps (“maniac” by brian atwood) are supposed to be super comfortable.  i disagree.  they’re not the most heinous shoes that i’ve ever worn but definitely a far cry from comfortable.  abe lincoln once said that everything on the internet is true.  LIES, honest abe, LIES!

unrelated.  stallion and i are headed to a black tie event tomorrow night.  unfortunately, i never managed to find fiona’s elusive black dress, but i found another suitable option.  i have my shoes and accessories all ready, but i’m kinda stressed out as to what to do with my hair.  given that the top of the dress is quite busy and that my hair is currently reverse ombre-d, i have deduced that my hair needs to be up, but beyond that, i’m at a loss.  sigh.

another boring day in celebrity fashion.  double sigh.

fancy pants and funny shoes

hi guys!  hope the week is treating you well thus far.  again, a thousand apologies for my e-flakiness as of late; work has barely left me with any time to breathe.  phew.

black turtleneck sweater by wilfred from aritzia | black and white ikat printed skinny jeans by bdg from urban outfitters | j75 men’s spiked red patent leather sneakers | random spiked necklace from stallion | marc by marc jacobs gunmetal chronograph watch | anthropologie woven blue bangle | forever 21 spiked bracelet | turquoise rhinestone bracelet from target | j crew neon yellow bangle | michael kors glass bracelet

miscellaneous musings:

these shoes STILL squeak like crazy.  and it’s driving me crazy.

david burke’s primehouse was a horrific experience last night.  they tried to pass off some chuck-esque cut of meat as their restaurant week filet mignon.  way to insult your diners, david burke.  absolutely would not recommend.

celebrity fashion has been boring the (fancy) pants off me lately, which explains my lack of red carpet-related content in the past couple weeks.  come on, celebs.  wow me!  disgust me!  just….something….me!

Kicked off restaurant week with dinner at little market. Neither the best nor the worst meal I’ve ever had.
