I've often joked about the difference between dressing for men and dressing for women. I love wearing things that are different and that, while not necessarily the most flattering, make a statement and express who I am. Men, not so much. If it were up to Andy I'd always be wearing short, tight dresses, which isn't very statement-making (or comfortable). Nonetheless, I'm always game for short, tight, interesting dresses, and this one fits the bill. Add a funky cape and suddenly the outfit is just as satisfying to me as it is to Andy.

As for the shoes, I'm not the sort who buys a pair of Louboutins lightly, but I was in Paris a year ago and the price + exchange rate + tax back at the airport = too good a deal to pass up. And no one does a perfect shade of nude like Louboutin. (In fact, they're kind of obsessed with it.) If you're ever in Paris, make it a point to go to one of their stores, if only for the eye candy and people watching. (Warning: there will be a line to get in.) 

Thanks for stopping by!
