Initially I was not fond of the lucite trend. Every time I see clear shoes I think of a stripper and it is not exactly the look I am going for. I fell in love with the Lanvin heels when I saw them though. Although the heel it lucite it is smoky so to me they don't scream stripper. Well at least I hope they don't. As for the dress it was another great find. I found it at the clearance rack at Necessary Clothing down in the village. Set me back a whole $10. I can live with that. How do you feel about the lucite trend?
