Blue Plate dress, Ross, old
Michael Michael Kors sweater and Style & Co. studded sandals, Macy's
earrings, Thai market in Seattle, gift
These sandals also need replacing - I like that they're studded and have a small wedge, but unfortunately, they lack any kind of support (how do so many people wear shoes without a padded footbed?). Also, I never use the back zip closure since it cuts into my left ankle (but not the right, oddly enough). Now the sole is starting to fall apart, which means I need to save my pennies to get an equally cute, more comfortable replacement (I'd be happy to add these or these to my closet.)
Random news: I was texting a friend the other day to see what she wanted me to bake for our get-together, and she suggested "your brownies with choco chip cookies." Hmm. They sounded vaguely familiar ... I checked the Pinterest board I use to document recipes I've tried. Not there. This must have been baked before I started using Pinterest. At this moment, I'm kind of impressed that she remembers them years later, and anxious to find the recipe. If you type "brownie with chocolate chip cookie" into Google, you get, oh, a mere 3.15 million results, so I'll have to look through my paper recipe file to see if I kept a copy. My mom swears she had the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe years and years ago, and then she lost it ... I hope my brownie-chocolate chip cookie has not met the same fate!
p.s.:There are two types of echoes in this outfit: first, the earrings are similar to the dress pattern, and second, I was inspired by Jen of Librarian for Life and Style, who paired black with her gorgeous pink dress.
