Heart of (mostly) Darkness

Yahoo, home before dark! Barely. 

I had planned to wear my Miista galaxy shoes, but my feet were very tender and the insoles didn't sit right. So then I was going to wear my Crocs, but I didn't like the look for my appointment. So then I peered inside my Reports to see if an insole might fit and found that I'd worn a hole into the bottom (again, did this on a previous pair) and had basically been walking on the hard shoe base for who knows how long. Put in an extra cushy insole and got on with it. 

It's been a tiring week... counting down until Tuesday.

    Rae I would love to see a better photo of the wrap. This looks wonderful on you:)

  • Adelfa replied 7 years ago

    I'm struggling with lack of light, too. Your wrap top looks really nice!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    Your wrap looks amazing, and I love how your bag is the beacon of light in the photo.

    Love the Zella wrap! I do the same thing to my insoles - wear a hole through at the ball of foot. That's actually also how I end up destroying many pairs of shoes for good - I have worn holes from the inside down. On thin soles I've actually worn them through to the ground.

    The wrap is gorgeous as are you!

    Love the wrap! Very Helmut Lang.

    Apparently I got a killer deal:

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    Rae, I have that A&O one, but I got it at the consignment store for $40.  It's nice, but I'm sure yours is just as nice.

    Hey "Precious" - I see you - but I can hardly see anything else!  Bummer!  When you get a chance Rae, take a pic of you wearing that Zella wrap in the daylight, ok?  I am so curious how you are styling it!  Love the snake necklace!  Tha'ts crazy about your Reports!  I mean, that's a LOT walking, turning, twisting, etc.!  I feel for you feet!  I'm assuming that you are working through Monday?  Hope you're enjoying it - even though I bet you're beat!

    Love you in the Zella wrap!  Stunning look on you.  And I'm a fan of snake jewelry myself.

    I adore that sweater. I think you've perfectly set it off with the black basics and elevated it with the purse. LOVE! 

  • rachylou replied 7 years ago

    I like that sort of top. I have one in *circus stripe*. I admit I have trouble getting into it. It's configurable.

  • rae replied 7 years ago

    Deborah and Marley, here are the original pics I posted when I first got it. I think I found a couple more ways to wrap it since then, after Una linked a very helpful video. One of these days I'll find the original thread. 

    Diana, that tears it - I just ordered your EF booties... after learning your ankle size and ball of foot walking type, I could not stand it any longer. I only found a half size bigger than usual, but some of the reviews said to size up. *fingers crossed* At least they were 20% off with free return shipping...

    Okay, couldn't help brightening you up a little! 

    I swear, Rachel, you are hitting it out of the park each and every day!  This is just streamlined and super fab!

  • Mochi replied 7 years ago

    So dramatic, and you've styled it just right by keeping everything else pared down to the most basic silhouette. Gorgeous.

    Really lovely -- hope the new booties work out!

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Top is a hit!

    The Brahmin satchel is everything!! LUV
