The Big Guy took me into the city for dinner and to see Les Miserables (my all time favorite show) last night. I thought and thought about what to wear and ended up wearing a tan and black wrap front dress with a satin ribbon around my waist. It had a kind of toile pattern and with the the bow tied in the front, it looked French-ish to me.
I had on my black wedge heels when, suddenly, I realized that my Sex In The City Shoes with the ribbons would look perfect with the outfit! It was my first appearance in public with them. I accessorized with my satin evening bag with satin roses on it and my black chandelier earrings and I was off!
In the short amount of time I was in public, not sitting at a dinner table or in the theater, 6 different women approached me to talk about my shoes! About 10 others pointed and whispered or made passing comments (usually quoting Carrie Bradshaw). Each time I raised my foot and said, "I made them!" and explained how to do it. After awhile, The Big Guy said "Is someone else talking to you about your shoes?!"
So, I call our first outing in public together a success. Boy, do I love a cute pair of shoes.
