NEW SHOES! Remember when I returned those ill-advised floral wedges? These babies were the exchange. I think you'll agree, it was the right thing to do:
Leather platform sandals with zipper heel by N.Y.L.A. The platform and heel are stained wood, and the body is a beautiful caramel-colored distressed leather. I'm in love.
Also, NEW EARRINGS! You may know that my favorite place to buy jewelry is Etsy.com - the one-of-a-kind handmade stuff with a story... blah blah. Well this wonderfully talented jewelry designer named Rachel made these for me, and I couldn't be happier about them:
Rachel called them 'Goddess' earrings, made with guinnea feathers, pheasant feathers and some others. They conjure images of some sort of tribal queen or temple dancer. Every time I've worn them out (which is about 3 times since they were delivered), I've gotten mucho compliments. And I always get the 'OMG where did you get those?!' question... to which I answer Etsy and plug Rachel's craftsmanship. You're welcome, Rach.
I made an appearance at Kidd Kraddick in the Morning for work yesterday, and by the end of the show, I had every female at 106.1 ordering a pair. Again, Rachel - you're welcome.
