High-Heeled Date: July 30th, 2010

Event: First fancy date night (my first night living in MKE): Swig & Kafevino

Outfit: Pink ruffled tank: Target; Cuff (gift from Stephy) & pleated skirt: Banana Republic; Metallic clutch: Payless; Belt & necklace: Forever 21; High heeled sandals: “Lucy” by Fergie—Courtesy of Fergie

Liza from Famous Footwear very kindly sent me these shoes awhile ago, and I finally found a reason to wear them! I’ll be honest—it was the heel height that kept them on the back burner for so long. In these 5″ heels I was a towering 6’4″, which I think I can fairly say is a rarity for my gender. I also wanted the option of holding Adam’s hand all night—my high-heel experience is limited and thus my balance is questionable. But the stars finally aligned and it was time to put these to the test.

I have to admit, wearing heels this high just makes you feel 10x sexier. I felt like my legs looked longer and that I could take over the world. Yes, those two are very highly correlated. The platform portion of the shoe made me feel like I was walking in much shorter heels, and I would definitely deem these comfortable! A man stopped to ask why we were taking photos and complimented the heels, so YAY for Famous Footwear. You made me be brave, and I thank you for it. Actually looking directly into Adam’s eyes was a whole new experience (we had to adjust how we held hands, kissed….quite the challenge ;)). Here are some current Fergie options over at Piperlime.

I really liked how this outfit came together. I finally got around to getting some of my skirts dry cleaned, so I was pretty darn eager to make an outfit out of one of ’em. I’m not a huge pink fan in general, but this bright shade with black is definitely a favorite combination. I also got a hair cut on Friday morning, which always adds a little bounce to my step!

In any case, I felt like it all really came together to make a nice look for our first date night as roomies! I suspect date nights will take on a different (perhaps more special?) meaning now that we see each other every day. This one was definitely a good/delicious start. We walked to Swig (where we went for my birthday in May) and enjoyed some outdoor dining. We ordered wonton-wrapped chicken curry to start, and I followed that up with the Rustic Pasta (MMMMMmmmm). Adam loved his Garlic Shrimp Tagliolini. We stopped off at Kafevino on the walk home to purchase a bottle of wine and enjoy a glass together there before heading home (they don’t have a corkage fee—-excellent!). Back at the apartment we enjoyed more vino out on our balcony and then came inside to play Rock Band with Beth & Jeff (remotely). Perfect mix o’ romance and fun.

Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! Sorry my posts are a bit behind as of late—-with us spending our nights unpacking/putting furniture together it will likely take me a little time to be updating day-of (or close to it). More to come soon.

P.S. The goofball picture is me trying to point to my nose ring. No internships/work for two weeks means a 24/7 reunion with my bejeweled nose! Boooyeah.

P.P.S. This just makes me grin. BUHBYE, PROP 8. I’m delighted to see you go.
