These Shoes FAIL

This is what I wore this weekend in Austin. I actually got the concept from a pic of Victoria Beckham. I figured, I could pull the look off. It's nothing special but this blog is about my personal style, right? Somedays...it's a khaki and t shirt kind of day. Keep in mind that right before this picture, I just completed an eight hour test from the pits of hell. I felt blah in this but I'm sick of blogs where the girl is chasing bees in perfectly crisp clothes and smile to boot! Right after this, I ate some chicken tacos and the best queso dip I ever had in my life! So there:)

Now, let's talk about these freakin shoes! Comfortable? Check! Cute? Check. Evil Shoes? CHECK! I freakin fell in these shoes! I was getting out of the car to get take a stupid test  to prove that I am worthy to be a principal and was so busy trying to figure out how long the line was to sign up that I completely missed a step and fell from grace! I swear it felt like it was in slow motion. I just remember landing on all fours and purse falling after I did! The whole line turned around to look at me!

Can we say EMBARRASSED!! OH MY GOD!

So I just laughed at myself and wobbled to the line. I am pretty sure everybody was saying "That's what she gets for coming up in here with those heels when we are about to take an 8 hour test!"
You know what I did? Strutted my ass in my seat and pulled out my snacks and lined up my pencils on my desk and looked straight ahead! Most people showed up wearing jogging suits and flip flops...but not MOI'! I am trying to channel Victoria Beckham and busted my ass!

If you are a veteran follower, you will note that this is NOT the first time that I've fallen from grace...atleast I didn't go get a hamburger to soothe my ego this time:)

Don't blame the shoes. Blame the parking lot, that's what I do.

This is a GREAT look on you. Just perfect. Casual but chic.

I love the shoes! Where did you get them from? And about the fall...I am sure you rocked that test looking all chic and stuff and when that is proven the fall will be obsolete

Corie said...

Every single time I read your blog, you have me crackin up! lol

Sorry you fell but you are a trooper girl! You got right back up and continued on. Love it!

The shoes are really cute too.

Christen said...

Oh no! I have definitely fallen on my face at the most inopportune moments. A number of times. So you are not alone.

And although they failed, those shoes are still fabulous! Hope the test went well!

Lady, it happens to the best of us...you just get up quick....smooth it out (like one of those Beyonce moves where you act like it never happened) and keep it moving. You still keep the Diva going because that's what is expected of a Diva honeychild! The show must go on! LOL

Karla said...

Posh looks like she could use a taco or two! Love her style, though!

Nothing to say to you, you always look fantastic.

CaneWife said...

I agree with blaming the parking lot!

And you look fantastic. I actually prefer your outfit to Victoria's - much cuter.

Who are you Weesha? said...

don't blame the shoes, they're too pretty to be evil! Bad parking lot!

Kyla said...

Oh, man - I just had a bit of laughing fit - much to my husband's confusion, of course. You manage to crack me up practically every day! I love it!

And those shoes are the bomb! Ass over tea kettle and all - they're totally worth it!

Moni @ CL Journal said...

Girl! I KNOW you were too through!

Emily Kennedy said...

Oh whoa! Those shoes did you wrong! Wrong I say!

Girl wasn't that weather nice. That was a really good walk Reiko!

Yesterday was so stressful I really needed that walk to clear my head.

Tomorrow you wanna meet at Step and Sculpt? or are you going to bible study?

Marion Renee said...

Those shoes just might be worth a fall. They are gorgeous! I hope you rocked the test!
