It's 1985 Do You Know Where Your Shoes Are?

New Year's Eve 1984 I went on my first date with a very cute older boy. He picked me up in his beat up Toyota (he could drive!) and we went to see "Stop Making Sense" at what passed for the arty movie theater at the time (it showed Rocky Horror at midnight!). Afterward we went to his friend's house and sat around watching MTV and talking. At midnight, a very brief kiss.

Earlier in the day my mom bought me a new shirt - button down with electric blue and black vertical stripes which I paired with my black jeans that zipped at the ankle and my white high tops.

Unfortunately this date was the gateway to almost two years of an obsessive mostly
unrequited crush on the boy (and a few very bizarre dates) but this first date was magic.

Why am I boring you with tales of my past? Because today I am wearing these fabulous Diego di Lucca flats in the same electric blue as my shirt on that fateful date. I know I have complained about ruffles on flats before, but on these shoes the ruffles work. These shoes were also "free" thanks to a Lucky Magazine cash back card. Doesn't get much better than that does it?

You find the best shoes -- online, even. These are great. And the memory they conjure up is even better.
