The pants I am wearing are a recent eBay purchase, I can't stop wearing them since they've arrived. Also, I am wearing my new basket weave Givenchys, and holy moly, they are by FAR the most painful shoes I own. I wore them to go shopping and they totally lacerated my feet-oh well, better suck it up! I'm in love with these gorgeous shoes.
2008 was great! I'm sad to say goodbye. 
But the new year looks bright! The future holds exciting things!!
What were you dancing to last night?
I can't get enough of this song!
(Raquel is such a babe.)
Thanks to everybody who takes time to read Sea of Shoes and thank you to the people who write me such sweet Facebook messages and emails-you guys have made my year really amazing and I hope all of your new years are filled with wonderful things :)
xox Jane

    the givenchy basket weave wedges are weirdly tiny and narrow and KILL. the givenchy peep toe wedge bootie with double strap is the same basic construction but super-comfy. it’s very strange how they vary! hang in there with your beautiful shoes! both styles are so lovely to look at.
