It's Friday, I'm feeling a little edgy, and what else makes a girl feel better than having her soles feel good!

I snagged these babies last yr and found that I rarely wear them; I may have only worn them ONCE. I forgot how comfy they were too! Pulling these kicks out of my shoe closet and dusting its' shoulders off I paired it w/ dark colored skinny capri jeans and a dark grey and white sleeveless blouse that ties a bow around my neck.

These are DKNY Rachelle's (Barrington) with the Insolia technology in a metallic midnight blue color.

While researching these shoes I found a little more information. Actually very cool information about the inventor of the Insolia technology. A world renowned Podiatrist, Dr. Howard Dananberg, invented the Insolia, a geometrical pad that can be worn with high heels to shift the weight back onto heels. DKNY adopted and picked up this technology into some of the shoes in their line.

Shirt Dress Shirt

Is it a shirt? Is it a dress? Or is it a shirt dress? I can't decide! It's too short and sheer to be a dress alone. It's too much for a shirt with pants. So, I paired this shirt dress w/ a pair of shorts and a tank underneath to make myself not to sheer and exposing but also still not too much to be all hot and bothered. It worked out to be a fun loving outfit for an afternoon downtown.

My shirt/dress, agh! whatever it's called was a new find during my NYC July 4th trip. I found it at a sale store that had everything under $20. I loved this shirt so much because of the soft cotton that I got 2! One in blue and white pinstriped and this one in black and white pinstriped. I love lil' sis' so much I gave her the blue one. HA! Makes up for her never have worn the coral dress before.

Jumping for good weather

We have been so lucky the past few weeks with great weather. Being in our nation's capital, on a Friday afternoon, made me jump with excitement. My buddy, M. Silber, captured me in this coral strapless dress and my cream multi stranded bib necklace. Muchas gracias to my sister, K. Pham, for letting me borrow this cute lil dress. I think I've worn it 3 times since she's purchased it. Too bad she hasn't worn it once. Score!

Top it off

Everyone is sweatin' the hat movement. For the record, I've always adored putting a hat on and calling it a day. It used to bug my mother so much for new hats ;-) Merci maman!

I have a good assortment of hats and recently found 2 snazzy hats on my NYC trip. Pictured here is not one of hats from my trip but this is getting you geared for what's to come. (Can you tell I still miss my Cancun vaca)? Enjoy the summer and keep the sun rays out by looking good while wearing something everyone will notice.
