heels.

I went through a phase in my life where I went everywhere in heels. Everywhere. At the time I was working for a couture bridal designer/social staple in Memphis, and it suited. However, at this point in my life, if you want to see me in heels, you'd best be hosting a cocktail party or an evening wedding, and even then I'll try to find a way to wear flats. Wicked cool flats, but flats.

But.

Yesterday we got the catalog for the new LL Bean Signature line, and I fell in love with these shoes. Of course I won't buy them because I'm a stay-at-home-mom, and where the bejeez would I wear them?? However, I will stare longingly at them. Then of course, I got on the website and ran across this dress, which I also covet. I'm feeling very, very much like I need a big, expensive shopping trip. If anyone would like to donate to that cause, send checks...because you know you can't send cash in the mail.

And on the subject of fashion, the other night I got insanely excited about getting to watch the Oscars edition of The Fashion Police. The next day, when we turned the TV on, the episode was playing again, and I squealed a bit and said, "Oooh, M, look it's on again." He laughed and pointed out that my Achilles heel is shows about dresses. He might be right. I could watch Say Yes to the Dress a hundred times in a row.

I will leave you now so I can think about dresses...instead of important things...

But you would look so great prancing around Disney in that dress! And it would be very cool in the summer heat.

That's the only reason why I love to watch award shows: The dresses!

I'm sure you've noticed that the heels would look great with that dress...
I ALSO have a crazy love affair with dresses. I would like to wear only dresses forever. Ahhhh....
