Velvet + Stripes Featured timadame I found these yellow velvet shoes at a thrift shop, in Cary. Imagine my excitement, when they fit perfectly and fell within my budget! I had been looking for statement clothing and these shoes were right inline. My favorite part is that they can be worn throughout the different seasons. As I walked to my car with my knew shoes, I day dreamed a dozen different outfits. It had been a while since I was this excited about shopping or finding something I loved. I couldn’t have resisted these shoes, if I tried lol. Soon I found myself strolling downtown Raleigh, in my fancy new heels feeling fabulous. The lighting was on my side and this brought on an improdue photoshoot. I love walking, and I now have so many restaurants, bars and shops on my list from my stroll. I spent the whole evening looking for inspiration and admiring the buildings, downtown. I had a wonderful dinner and ended the night exploring more of the city before heading home and putting my velvet shoes up. All was well in my world.
