Tough Love

Tough... because these shoes are fierce. And love... because I just adore this dress...

Photobucket
I have had this dress for well over five years. It is the dress I pull out when I'm having wardrobe dilemmas and I don't know what to wear. I know I will always feel good in it, neither too under-dressed or over-dressed with it's now classic one-shoulder Grecian style that I so love.

When my latest Blue Inc purchase arrived, what better way to accentuate the jewel around the waist of the dress than with these studded beauties. Oh, and hot pink nails and lips of course.
