I originally planned this outfit around wearing my new Michael Antonio wedges but they were so impossible to walk in that I ditched them for what Hubbs and I call my "nurse" shoes. Can I get three cheers for slouch socks?

I've been meaning to photograph this sheer red dress for a looong time. A Kaboodle friend had mentioned that she wanted to see it a few months ago and, well, I just got around to it.

|Better view of the headband. Love it, love the lady who made it for me!|

And, because I'm not actually completely insane, I didn't leave the outerwear at home:

Question: Does anyone else find capes hugely annoying when you actually need to carry things? I love them (and they're pretty abundant at tag sales so I've amassed quite a few), but I'm left wondering how to toss my bag over my shoulder without looking like an idiot. Anyone have the secret? So far, my only secret is to wear something else when I'm picking up the groceries, haha.
