Red Dress Emoji In The Wild

Hey, Darlings! I spent last weekend in Tennessee living it up with a lot of my favorite people. We had many sorts of "a fantastic time" with a murder-mystery party Saturday night and an engagement and follow-up party Sunday, Valentine's Day! I was able to maneuver the hideous ovens and make 50 + cupcakes for the happy couple's party, hobbling about the cabin on a sprained ankle. See, directly before the murder mystery party, I stepped on the top step on the hardwood staircase in my blingy high-heeled sandals, my ankle buckled, and I banged down six or seven stairs on my shin. Obviously the idea of any shoes whatsoever was abandoned and I attended the murder mystery party in an evening gown, barefoot.





(shout-out to Jordan, my excellent fake husband for the evening, who - though a complete stranger till that evening - let me keep his arm and supplied me with ice and cheesecake when necessary.)

The red gown was found in a rush for $7 at Goodwill and though it wasn't a purchase based off of how excellent it looked on me, I did end up liking it pretty well. I feel like the red dress emoji and that's pretty fun, actually. Thankfully I don't have a fracture and my main complaint will be that I cannot wear heels for the next eight weeks. And I had just bought my single self some Ivanka Trump leopard-print specimens for Valentine's Day. NO HEELS FOR EIGHT WEEKS. My gosh, what a blow. That being said, actual style-posts might be slightly hampered in the next two months by the fact that I'm wearing a huge old gel-pack brace. Or you might just see "real life" posts including my darling gel-cast, glaringly un-stylish against the rest of the outfit. Just a fair warning. For now, this is my life at work:


Kids understand traffic cones so their mother put them out. They go with me everywhere and this keeps the girls' Tigger tendencies at bay on my bad leg. Ah me. No heels for eight weeks. No HEELS for eight WEEKS. I think I will go cradle my new Ivanka Trump heels and weep a little weep into the shoe leather.

  1. Oh no! I hope you heal quickly!

    And you look gorgeous in that red dress! :) Murder mystery parties are always such fun- my high school NHS group would have one every year and everyone always looked forward to it.

    1. Did you ever solve the mystery? That's the part I'm horrible at.
