Can We Talk?

.

Can we talk??

Have you ever been applying  your make-up and thought that a very fine, stray hair from your make-up brush was stuck to your face and gone to remove it only to find it was a line??!

  Me neither.

(right by my your eye)

I was just wondering if that had ever happened to you.

.

So, speaking of getting gussied up…

We attended a stunningly beautiful wedding this weekend.

Now Santa Barbara, as most of you probably know, is a magical location for a wedding,

and this one was no exception.

.

.

Love was literally in the air :)

.

.

Of course due to privacy,  I won’t go into any details but…

‘Twas a Black Tie affair.

.

I wore an ultra-violet evening gown with hot pink suede Christian Louboutins (never to touch my feet again, such was the agony of the experience) and carried my hot pink patent Alexander McQueen oversized clutch.

(We’re talking borderline too big for ‘carry-on’)

I do love a clutch that you can actually fit $%#@ into though, don’t you?

.

The Satan Spawn Shoes (sorry Mr. Louby)

You know it doesn’t bode well when you’re applying band-aids before you’ve even left the house.

.

.

I wish I’d had these instead.

.

.

and while we’re on the subject of shoes

( I think we can all agree; a subject very near & dear to our collective heart :) )

Never have I been to an affair

.

.

where the men seriously gave the women a run for their money in that department

(no pun intended)

.

.

Wish I’d gotten a better photo of this gent’s wonderful zebra skinned evening slippers

.

.

And I so wanted these…

.

Gorgeous bespoke beaded gems (size 15 1/2 no less. Dude-that’s a lot of beads…)

.

Truth be told, I’m absolutely loving the resurgence of the evening slipper for men & women right now.

So much so I even convinced my husband to pay a visit to the Stubbs & Wootton website the very next day.

See? miracles DO happen!

it’s just all in the timing…

When love is in the air, anything is possible.

.

.
And is it embarrassing to say I still get a little thrill at a good cluster of Disco Balls?!
.
.
If only I’d had velvet slippers to dance in!
.
.
Congratulations Beautiful Newlyweds
May you trip the light fantastic for many decades.
xoxo
