the half of it.

a fitted, knee length pencil skirt is a staple in my work wardrobe. along with well-fitting slacks like these here, it's what i feel most comfortable in at the office. and some super high heels give it just the right amount of oomph.

i was thrilled to get this tiny little package in the mail today. again, in a record three days. the box, which isn't much bigger than my hand, contained a couple sunglasses and a necklace. if only everyone could ship as economically and efficiently as this. yes, i'm still bitter about my lost asos package.
i suppose these glasses are inspired by chanel's half-tint glasses, but i first saw them on a blogger and thought they were quite comical. in a good way.
i couldn't resist.

  6. The outfit is very powerful. Love the silver heels under. Love the style of the glasses but I don't get the lenses so are they covered half way? And you can still see clearly?

  8. I LOVE your sunglasses! Where did you find them? I have totally been looking for that style but haven't been able to find ones with the Chanel half-tint.
    And the first time I ordered from Asos, they lost my package too and refunded the order, and then a month later, my package showed up! So keep checking the mail!
