Power Dressing and Big Girl Shoes

This is a very special outfit for me for several reasons.  First being that these shoes are 11 years old and were my first pair of pointy-toed stilettos, aka Big Girl Shoes. They really started my evolution from tomboy/punky/gothy/grungy college student to sophisticated lady.  And second, of course is that this dress was designed by Diane Von Furstenberg!!!!!  I also have her classic wrap dress in a leopard print.  Sometimes I am of the mind that expensive "special" dresses should only be worn for events/occasions, but that's not practical in terms of cost-per-wear ratio and even though it's just another day at work doesn't mean you can't bust out an outfitting big gun. I also am enjoying the 80's power dressing vibe of this look.  Happy Friday!
