|Indianapolis Monthly Magazine, December 2016|
I get it. I really do. The prevalence of social media has imposed a new kind of "wardrobe pressure." But to that idea, I say pshaw. I say bollocks. I say who cares. If you like a dress; if wearing it makes you feel happy, and beautiful, and gives you confidence, why on Earth would you want to relegate it to the back of your closet just because you've already been photographed wearing it?

As for that ensemble I wore in Indianapolis Monthly? It's one of my all time favorites. It is a quintessential Red's Shoe Diaries look. Of course it was the right call for the magazine's "My Look" feature. It was also the perfect outfit for ringing in the New Year with Bruno Mars for the 24kt concert in Las Vegas, being that it's covered in 24kt gold accents and all. And yes, I also wore the very same outfit for New Year's Eve 2016. Photos of me at both celebrations showed up in news coverage (Current in Carmel last year; the Las Vegas Review Journal this year). Should I be embarrassed about that? Do I wish I'd worn something else this year in retrospect? Nope. Nope. Nope.
