Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Get on your dancin' shoes and your bobby-socks!


So the day seems grey? 
Well, you just let it know that--for you and me--there is no such thing as a boring, dull, grey day! 
Take that middle-muddle of a puddle-y grey day, and
show it what it really is meant to be:


It's not really just an in-between,
muddle-y shade of grey

~but actually ~

snazzy 
BLACK and WHITE
mixed together! 





This was the first outing for these shoes, but they were a huge hit with everyone who saw them.  I'm thrilled about them!  They make even my humungous feet look relatively small.
And they'll be great for fall: menswear is still going strong as a trend (I think that--for the truly stylish--menswear will always be around), and the fall runways/magazine spreads are mostly BLACKonBLACKonBLACKonBLACKWhat a change from the neons and brights we've been seeing! 
But anyway, I have a feeling that these shoes will look fab poking out from a black wide-leg trouser.


I'm also looking forward to paring them with a floral print dress (on the comPLETE flip side) with lacey bobby socks (like I have on in these photos). 
But for this day, my fave burgundy shorts served me well yet again.

Posing for my mom at McDonald's.
Yeah: we's classy.
Had waaaay too much fun editing all my "bobby-soxer-meets-schoolboy" (how do I come up with these things???) photos...Hope you enjoy!
