#fashionistacon2017 | the whitby

on october 28, i took a chance and entered a giveaway hosted by Dapper Dan to attend fashionista.com`s fifth annual fashionistacon. i typically avoid giveaways because i never win, but i didn`t want to shoot myself down before i even tried. i`ve also been having a great week, after also winning a mall giveaway (that i declined) and getting the opportunity to interview with a company i liked, so i figured why not? so... i did what was required of me, submitted my entry and kinda forgot about it. however, on november 1, i checked my e-mail at around 6am and discovered that i had won. i was so shocked, ya`ll. i couldn`t believe i really won.

bloody shoes, no louboutin

i was on the search for a red boot and i thought i was out of options until i discovered these babies. i tried on a pair of stuart weitzman boots, but my ankles were too small (the struggle!), so it was a no. i tried on a pair of kenneth cole, but the pointed toe of the boot really made my feet look long and awkward (unless they really are just long and awkward). however, when i tried these on, i instantly fell in love.
