So here's where I wore the second pair of red shoes from my last post:
And here's what I wore with them:
Red and turquoise, my favorite colors! Shoes from DSW, purse on 75% off clearance from Target, earrings from Kohl's. This was my dress, in case you're interested (only I got mine for half that price! Ha!). I even got my first-ever spray tan, which was gross in process but I loved the results. I'll definitely be doing that again. (I had intended to wear my sari but changed my mind when I realized going to the bathroom without a helper to re-wrap me was completely impossible--how on earth do Indian ladies do it?)
The Major Hottie and I got to attend a ball celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the formation of the Colorado National Guard. It was fun--kind of like prom for grown-ups, since all the ladies were in formals and the guys in their fancy uniforms. Heck, we even got a keychain as a favor (did anyone else's high school give keychains as favors for all the dances?)It was a pretty big shindig--attendance somewhere around 900, including the top general for the Ntl. Guard bureau for the whole country and a Jordanian prince. The governor of Colorado spoke as well.
We rarely--okay, never--have an opportunity to dress up like this and do something fancy, so it was such fun. My shoes were gorgeous and didn't even hurt as much as I had anticipated (although I got smart and brought cute leopard-print flats for the long walk from the parking garage to the venue). We left Porter with a babysitter for the first time that night and he did great. It couldn't have been better!
