Simply divine! A hot pink coat and cool silver peep toe heels
Yesterday I saw a lady walking by my window in our parking lot at work who caused me to become speechless for a minute or two. She had on an absolutely gorgeous pink dress coat (hot pink, mind you), black wide-legged trousers, and super cool silver peep toe heels. Eeeee! So cool! I've never met anyone else who's worn silver shoes like that besides myself! And since I work in the same building with another company full of corporate financial people who have an unfortunately bland dress code (khakis, navy, black, and brown shirts/skirts, black/brown shoes), it doesn't allow for many impromptu fashion parades. Our own company isn't too bad in the fashion department, especially since we have a lot of creative types employed, but this lady still just blew me away. And she was an older lady, too, not some young hipster or anything. She looked so elegant yet funky and cool, I just couldn't believe it. It's how I would dress if I were a corporate bigwig and I had the freedom to buck the khaki codes.
I should have taken her picture, but I'm sure she was already creeped out by me staring at her, slack jawed, through my window.
