Daily Style...

My Orthopedist would not be pleased...
Specs: Spitfire via UO (14.00)
Dress: H&M (24.00)
Necklace: H&M (old)
Wedges: Kenneth Cole Reaction via Marshalls (20.00)
... Because of these babies:
Sorry for not posting anything yesterday, Monday night my knee locked up - which is painful- and I had to go see my doctor on Tuesday to figure out the problem. We still don't know what happened, I'm going to see an Orthopedic Trauma Specialist tomorrow. In the meantime I've been advised not to run, swim, or bike- which is terrible because I like to do all of those things- but they said nothing about wearing 4" wedges! So, ha!
I bought this dress last night and am really excited to mix it up. I really don't have any plain black dresses that are this versatile.Last night was date night, Chris and I went out for Sushi, took a quick stop at the mall, and then went to see Taking Woodstock. Have you seen the movie yet? It's getting mixed reviews, but I thought it was enjoyable and the visuals are wonderful:
And by visuals I mean Liev Schreiber rocking the ditzy floral trend!

That is hilarious! I have to get hip surgery in Nov., and when I went in for my consultation to meet the surgeon, I just threw on 3 inch heels with my jeans (which, actually do really bother my hip, but hey, I love heels!). It wasn't until my husband questioned my choice in footwear, that I saw a problem with it!

Elaine said...

Is that Demetri Martin!??If you say yes, I may have to run to the theatre right now and watch it....hahaha And boo to your knee!! I hope you feel better soon so you can rock some more 4" heels. You look amazing as always! I, like everyone else who reads your blog, am so completely jealous of your long beautiful locks!

I saw Taking Woodstock on Saturday and it was probably one of the best movies I saw all summer. I loved the pres conference scene the most.

@ Sarah: Thank you!

@Clare: Thanks!

@LeProust: It's funny, I usually don't wear heels and the day I went to the doctor I joked with my coworkers that I wasn't going to be able to wear any crazy shoes- lo and behold I'm wearing these the next day! Hope your surgery goes well, I'm scared that I'm going to need it as well.

@Elaine: It is Demetri Martin! Isn't he cute? Emile Hersch is in it too, who I prefer. Go see it! thank you for the well wishes and the love!

@Pretty Neat: thanks!

@EmilyAnne: I love that scene! and the one where his parents have eaten four brownies (!) each- so good!

Great dress!! Cant believe it was only $24. Oh and I completely agree... those shoes are SOO AMAZING!!!

I am sorry to hear about your knee. I hope everything goes well with the Orthopedic Specialist and you dont have to get surgery or anything. Fingers crossed and prayers sent! =)

Oh and I would have never guessed that was Liev Schreiber rocking that floral dress... even when I see the previews. Too cute!!
