In Love With Litas!

Litas: c/o Style Recognized
I cannot begin to describe the surreal feeling that came over me when I found out I'd been one of the winners from the Style Recognized giveaway. I've had to wait for these babies to arrive since they were sold out, but Su didn't fail, and she got them out to me sooner than I actually thought they'd be here!

So first off, go read Su's story here.
Seriously, I know it's a wordy post, but it's worth the read. She's amazing and so inspiring. The reason why she does such generous giveaways? Its because she has a generous heart! 
Isn't it amazing how certain events can just change a person's entire view on life? I hope to one day experience something like what she did. A life-changing moment is unforgettable!

Now...prepare for a barrage of photos...I got a little excited about showing off my gorgeous new Litas!
I can say I officially own a pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Its been my dream! :D 
For these photos, me and Kirsten explored at the local fair grounds and to our delight, found it utterly abandoned and open for our investigation. I had a fun time feeling like that entire stadium was mine! Haha

Outfit Details:   Shirt: Vanity   Skirt: Rue 21   Bag: Rue 21

Now when I started researching these heels, I read the reviews and didn't fully believe it when some said they could run in them. I mean, come on! It's almost a 6" heel! 

But ladies...they were right. I tested the theory myself.
Oh, and of course, did a little spazzy jump in them. Didn't roll an ankle or even fear about tipping over. They're that stable and well-made.

So to bribe Kirsten into joining in on the modeling fun, I loaned her one of my favorite tribal tees. This fun little fringed number! Its one of my faves, but funnily enough, I haven't worn it yet for the blog. 
So I had K model it for me, and I must say, she looks smashing in it. :)

Then we found a tree stump and balanced the camera on it so we could take a few together!
It was quite humorous because of the height difference. Haha, normally we're about the same, but my Litas boosted me past her.

Which is ironic, because look at a photo we took together last year:

Haha, heels are a girl's best friend!

Once again, thank you Style Recognized for my marvelous gift. I will treasure them and will never fail to be inspired by your generosity!

WOW LINDA!!!! Everyone wants Litas at style recognized haha if you look at all the posts, that's what most people chose! I must say, you ROCK them girl. Good color choice, too. If I were you I'd be wearing those ERRYDAY. You just look so HAPPY. I'm really hoping I win style recognized, but I'm okay if I don't. It's just fun to see how happy Su makes other people! If I win though, I'm going to find some way to thank her. Writing thank you cards is a personal value of mine, but i suppose an email will suffice. She seems so wonderful :)
ANyways, back to your outfit:
