For me, especially this year, the month of October is crazy busy. With parties & celebrations! My brother West and my brother Doug both have birthdays (a week apart), followed by best friend Melissa (this past Sunday! Brunch was yum!), my Dad is turning 65 and we're giving him a dinner party, my cousin is this Saturday and I have a company event on the 23rd. Like I said, b-u-s-y. With all the celebrations, of course, a girl has to look great. And what better place to start then with the shoes. For me, I always, I mean always start with a great pair of black pumps, like these Tory Burch Wilshire Pumps. Perfect for every single occasion, and I just love the hint of satin with suede. If you're looking for pop of color, these are the one!
