The Scarlett Letter

Tonight I attended the Dallas Fashion Week at The Black Academy of Art and Letters with Kiah from The Rez to the City & Isabel from The Dallas Fashion Calendar.  The show included a plus size segment, so naturally I had to go.  As the plus size segment was not in line with my personal aesthetic, it did allow me to get all gussied up.  I must say that I am having fun at the events.  I feel it's a rarity to go to fashion events in Dallas and it's nice to be among people who have a similar appreciation.

I think I might have found the most fabulous $40 red shoes in the world.  Even though they were high and my feet hurt I made a commitment with them.  Through the night we were together for better or for worse.

I haven't red nail polish in years and I decided to bring a little sexy back.  I got "Big Apple Red" from the gel nail selection.  I feel all extra alluring with it on.

  25. I have a nice diamond ring on my finger like you. Do you feel like your ring and your other accessorize compete? Or do you not let it bother you?

    1. Congrats! I wear my wedding rings all the time. I picked a classic design that I feel goes with everything. Honestly I treat my wedding ring like my arm -- it's attached to me and I don't think about it when I am accessorizing.
