Welcome a new classic to the closet.

Hmm. If someone would have said the classiest plain black pump you’ll find at Nordstrom would be by BCBG, I might have laughed.

After deciding to try on women’s shoes more than juniors shoes, I found these. Totally classic, plain and versatile. No weird trendy embellishments, no crazy square toes, not pointy, and pretty damn comfortable.

They actually replace the last pair of classic black pumps I had… the ones my mom bought me in 1997, when I was a senior in HS. Hopefully, I’ll take amazing care of them and I’ll have them for 10 years as well…. until I’m 40?

No zoot suits.

Last night Kevin informed me he needed a suit for Friday. Um, really? We are going to a future insurance agent thing, and we’ve known about it for about 2 months. Yesterday he got an email about things to bring and expect, a suit was second on the list. Gee, you couldn’t have said something about this when you told us about it in June?

Last night we were also waiting for someone to call us back and let us know if we had to run out to Monroe to get a dog. The call came at 7:55, the little lady that came to look at him before us fell in love and took him. We’re fine with it, we just wanted to know if we still had a chance…

So we went to Men’s Warehouse. Kevin got this amazing suit. The best part is, it will be ready by Thursday night!!

I have to look fairly formal or put together as well. I’m off to buy a pair of basic black heels to go with my fancy black trousers. Fun.
