I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings


The Maya Angelou novel " I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" came to mind when I opened up the box from Aldo two days ago. While the novel is vastly different from my life, these caged up shoes screamed beauty and vivacity (much like the book).
I am quite literally dressed up with no place to go today. My sister and I had plans to go to a home brewer's night at a local brew shop and sample some home made beers, but she called me to say that she was sick. I'm not all that dissapointed as it is hot as hell here and I just want to go jump in a pool (which, coincidentally, is my Plan B).
Also, sorry about not commenting back on my posts lately. Unfortunately, I can only blame it on pure laziness. I promise I will get better. Promise!

your dress is so pretty!

and thank you for your kind comment on my blog. it IS nice to know that i am not alone out here. i realize that a lot of the reason i feel like the only one is because many others do what i do: not mention it on the blog! i think that's a totally reasonable move, but i decided to be a bit more transparent in the hopes of adding a bit of diversity and and creating community.

love your blog!!

xo,
the little violet dress

Skechers are not exclusively for celebrities. They are favorites for other professionals and can be worn in different occasions. This is because they maintain a body’s posture while providing comfort to the feet.

a perfect pair of Ladies Shoesdefinitely helps in augmenting their appearance. Shoes that are not only comfortable but conform to the beauty standards can also be had from the shoe stores!
