Doing it with "Dignity"

I love my Carlos Santana "Dignity" shoes. I love them so much I would write a sonnet about them if I actually understood what a sonnet was. I think everyone should have (at least) one pair of shoes that makes them feel like a goddess and these are mine.

The box describes them as "Old Silver." I think they are more of a faint gold with bronze accents -- but then, maybe that's what "Old Silver" looks like. These shoes are leather, but shimmer. I don't know how they do it, but I like it! I always have to explain to people that that metallics are neutral. As such, these shoes have been worn with a variety of outfits. I even wore them with a pear-green bridesmaid's dress in November. Talk about getting your money's worth!

The top-knot and bow gives these shoes a bit of a party vibe, but I don't need a party to wear them.

Today I wore them with my purplish-mauve button-up blouse from Banana Republic. The blouse's buttons are gun metal. I wore my pearl and crystal 3-strand necklace that has gun metal accents and a gun metal bracelet (all Cookie Lee, of course). The skirt is also from BR. It is a great skirt with a varied, brown weave (much like Beyonce).

I'm not joking when I say that I have instructed Joe to "memorialize" me in these shoes. Now, while that may sound dirty, it really is the equivalent to saying "bury" me in these shoes. And since I have opted for cremation, a memorial is what we shall have. Talk about dying with "Dignity"!
