FRAUDULENT: I'm clearly taking these photos not in an authentic GNO type situation, but in my wild and crazy . . . backyard. During the wee CEO's study hour (his daily "Curious George" dose). Sans nighttime hair & makeup, not to mention a cranberry vodka.

Speaking of - yes, I do have a wildly impractical shoe and clutch or three on hand. They don't come out often anymore, but oh, is it ever fun for me when they do:
