This Foolish Aesthete is having fun.

It was so chilly today, I had to throw a coat on over my pajamas to take some pictures.  I also decided to risk life and limb -- ok, just limbs -- to get the shot.  How perilous do you think this is?

This post is really about shoes.  I have a wedding to attend this month -- no, not Kate and William's.  I'm heading to a cousin's in LA.  I'm in a Platform quandary.  Invitation says "Formal", but my auntie kindly said that we "younger set can wear cocktail dresses."  How thrilled do you think I was to be included among the "younger" ones!  Besides, cocktail dress means shoes are VISIBLE!

The Vera Wangs are more glamorous, and Nude is always about leg-lengthening style, imperative for the vertically-challenged like me.  But these Coconut wedges can be fun too, especially with the fringe swaying like a Roaring '20s skirt.

Hmmm ... maybe I'll jump in the pool and think on it.


  1. Vera Wang. =) Do post pictures of your wedding outfit!

  2. Great, one vote for the Vera Wangs! =) I'll work on posting the wedding outfit when it's warm enough ...

  3. I'm thinking it sorta depends on the color of your dress~~b/c the red does looks mighty fine with the black, but if you're going to do a yellow, green or pastel then the Vera's babyyy~
