Lookbook: The Streets of San Francisco

10/21/2013

So I had a diva moment at iFabbo and decided to change outfits for the cocktail party. Who does that? I do. I really wanted to wear this particular Helmut Lang dress because it's so chic and effortless. I paired it with these awesome Nardith heels, which are probably some of the coolest shoes I own.

I had a refreshing cranberry gin fizz at the cocktail party and said hello to a few more bloggers that I hadn't had the opportunity to meet earlier at the conference, but I couldn't stay long because I had been standing in heels (without insoles) for 12 hours and my feet were threatening to take me out to a back alley and shoot me.

The left is how I was feeling, but the right is how my feet were feeling. Damn you, hills of San Francisco. FYI: The title of this post is from a Michael Douglas TV show from the '70s.

What do you think of this look?
