alloween has long been one of my high holy days. And while I prefer the holiday most when it lands on a Friday or a Saturday, one advantage of having it fall in the middle of the week is that there's the possibility of pertinent parties on both the weekend before and the weekend after. Such is the case this year. Though I didn't get out for anything more scary than a music rehearsal on the 31st (I suppose a case could be made that digging into the finer nuances of Genesis, Yes, and Pink Floyd songs could be considered frightening to some people), I did receive an invitation to a costume party for tonight. Oh, my! I haven't dressed up in a couple of years. This should be fun. Especially since I have plans to put those Shadow Stud heelless booties from Jeffrey Campbell to good use. Though considering what I'm planning to pair them with, there'll be plenty of conversation starters when I make an entrance. Wish me luck!

[On my feet as I blog: spent my Friday entirely at home and working in my studio or at my dining table. Which meant I didn't have to make myself presentable to walk out the door (though I did tidy up a bit when I went downstairs for my mail). The upshot of it was that I lounged around in a pair of stirrup leggings and a thigh length knit top...with my Arielle2 lace up booties on my feet. Discussing them with a fellow footwear fanatic, we decided the adjectives that accompany these shoes are these: competent, capable, fearless, and fierce. I'm glad I didn't send 'em back like I was originally planning to!]
