a pop of pink

When I was about 10 I really wanted to be a cheerleader-give me these pom-poms any day! Aren't these lovely?! The lines are delicate and simple. Joy.

wearing muppets on your feet

So I am out to lunch the other day with my dear friend and the woman behind me is wearing these on her feet. In her defense, hers were black. She was wearing them with one of those velour lounge outfits from Victoria's secret with gold writing on her behind. She was also sporting a black velvet headband with a bow. Lets start at the top. I occasionally pull a Blair and wear headband but a headband (especially one with a bow) is a lot of accessory for a grown-up and everything else you are wearing had better be understated. Second- those lounge outfits are called that for a reason- they are for lounging and no adult should ever leave the house with anything written on her behind. Especially when said lounge outfit is tucked into a pair of Muppets. What did the Muppets ever do to you?! I personally boycott anything made out of a delightful children's character as a matter of conscience.

feeling a little wild

I love these- I want to create an evening out just so I can wear them. I know I would feel VERY sexy and just a little bit wild. Who doesn't want to feel that way every once in a while?

The lines on these Calvin Kleins are simply perfect. They are a staple, you must have a shoe like this in your closet- they come in black but you all know how I feel about metallics.


OK- so I know I sort of disappeared last week. That toe surgery turned out to be a little bigger deal than I was expecting plus I had all that family and needless to say the blog fell by the wayside. Sorry. So to make it up to you we will continue the open-toed theme this week. Also this week I have decided to add a new feature to the blog. It will be labeled " what not to wear". I just see to many absolutely crazy things that people wear in public to not make snotty comments about it on my blog. Look for the new feature tomorrow. Happy New Year and have a great week!

back view

These are simply delightful- I love the open back and the always welcome bow detailing.

annie, get your gun!

Calvin Klein knows his way around a shoe. Let's be frank- the man has a pefect sense of line and balance. As evidenced by these-plus I love almost anything in that gunmetal color.

on fire

LOVE these! The color and snakeskin texture have me swooning as I write. Truly lovely.

a little fresh air

I am having toe surgery this morning. For several weeks my poor little piggies will be quite swollen. To accomodate them, this week we will celebrate the open-toed shoe.

Sometimes simple is best-sigh.

my fair flat

Remember that scene in My Fair Lady when Audrey Hepburn goes to the horse race in that unbelievable black and white outfit with the fabulous hat? That's what these remind me of, but they are appropriate for lots of places besides fancy horse races.

bowed boots

Lovely tall boots all tied up with a bow? Perfect.

Thursday, December 18, 2008

thou shall not covet

Oh, but I do! These are absolutely delightful! Love the two tone palette and the perfect lines make me swoon.

creamy caramel

These make me hungry for caramel. Great color and studding detail ,make them a little less sweet. Thank you, Betsey Johnson, thank you.

fucshia fever

Very disco, no? Perfect for anything you want to celebrate like New Years or the end of Chritmas vacation.

dying for spring

Oooooo- aren't these lovely! My toes would be purple with cold if I wore them now but it would be totally worth it.

my favorite adornment

You all knew it was coming. This week my obsession with bows will rear it's pretty head. Am quite excited.

pearlescence-shoe of the week

Aren't these lovely?! Love, love, love the pearls! Love.

Saturday, December 13, 2008

en pointe

Don't these totally feel like toe shoes plus a high heel? They totally feed my need to play ballerina and elongate my leg all at the same time.

romantic rust

You all know how I feel about a great bow and the delicious color of these make them oh, so desirable.

Thursday, December 11, 2008

bronze age

It's velvet ribbon again, but isn't it delightful! These would make your feet feel fancy no matter what you paired them with. Love them.

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

boudoir baby

OK- so technically these are mostly satin, but the ribbon is velvet and the luxe, feminine flavor is perfect for the spirit of this week.

turning japanese

These have a sultry, oriental feel to them that I adore. Very sexy, in a flat.

Monday, December 8, 2008

the final touch

Ooooo-aren't these delightful! Must find a fancy party or wedding to wear them to-must! May have small obsession with bows....

velvet underground

Yesterday Amber wore lovely velvet peep toes to church. They are perfect for this festive season and I was inspired-and so we have velvet week.

green with envy-shoe of the week

I have lusted after a classic Tory Burch ballet flat for many a month now. They are, quite simply, the perfect ballet flat. And they come in this delightful green. Still working out a plan to get a pair...

patented satin

So cute. Casual, but feminine and pretty. And, currently on sale for $10!!!

Friday, December 5, 2008

green mamba

I really had no idea that there would such fun things this week. I really want these to wear with my lbd to Christmas parties. The perfect unexpected, and yet seasonal, touch.

apple dumpling gang

Aren't these adorable. If you, like me, live in a place with only minor amounts of snow you could totally wear them on those nasty, slushy days. If you hail from colder climes, you should buy them for spring- they're on sale!

peeping at a croc

Talk about a fabulous animal print! I had no idea that all you needed to make a croc sexy was a peep toe.

mj loves green

The mottled finish on these is so interesting and non-boring! I also am quite fond of this modern take on the mary jane.

letting the moss grow

These look soft and comfy and effortlessly chic. Love the tassel detail and the delightful moss color. (Also a fab price)

ever green- theme of the week

I put up my Christmas tree this week and what with the pines boughs and all I am feeling rather fond of green. It's a lovely punch of color on an otherwise dreary day.

cinderella's dream- shoe of the week

What kind of party do I have to be invited to in order to justify Valentinos? Hmmmm. Who do I know in the French Riviera? And how do I contact my fairy godmother?

Saturday, November 29, 2008

high society

These are sophisticated and perfectly understated but definitely still very special.

Friday, November 28, 2008

chocolate satin

I have featured a similar shoe before but I adore these in the brown. They feel rich and definitely unexpected. Plus there is the whole "wrapped up like a present" vibe.

Thursday, November 27, 2008

disco darlings

Ok-it's important that I state up front that I despise Paris Hilton and anything to do with her but obviously whoever she has designing shoes for her line knows what they are doing. I love these! They feel very Studio 54 which is never a bad thing. Seriously, you had to be pretty awesome to get into Studio 54.

for the brave and beautiful

I don't know if I would have the guts to wear these. I hope so, I think I 'd need to try them on. I would however pay homage to any woman who did. They look like a lot of fun to wear.

silver slippers- better than glass

I really, really want these. So perfect with almost anything! Sparkly and sleek. I will be coveting these all day.

Monday, November 24, 2008

fancy footwork

Aren't these fancy- they're like jewelry for your feet. I think they are lucious!

party girls

It's getting to be that time of year again. I know you are all attending many fabulous fetes and are in desperate need of appropriate footwear. Here you are. Enjoy.

twinkle toes- shoe of the week

Really, if you were a little girl you would never, ever want to take these off. Never.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

just like a celebrity

All the rage among the stroller set in Hollywood are Lelli Kellys. You have to admit they are prettty adorable. Tomorrow I'll show their other classic style. They are far too fussy for an adult but I know several little pricesses who would do backflips for a pair of these. I would have.

Friday, November 21, 2008

just a note

If you happen to live near a Von Maur or possibly Nordstroms (they are the same company) all those great Betsey Johnsons that we featured last week for polka dots are in the clearance room. Hooray!

junior polka

Perfect. Simple with adorable, clean details. Not too fussy but plenty of girly.

Thursday, November 20, 2008

on fire

These are for the little girl who is jsut a little bit more exciting than the average. Check them out for you little rocker chick. (Special thanks to Marissa for the site suggestion-click the link for lots of great potions)

chocolate kisses

Ohhhh- these are soo cute! Quick-someone buy them so I can admire them on your lovely daughter's feet. I would have done very naughty things (you know like decorating the furniture with nail polish or something) when I was a peanut had these been the reward. As it was I was very good and no one gave me a pair of these lovely boots.

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

no place like home

I think these might be required attire for girlhood. I really love my little boys but they never get to wear perfect red mary janes.

Monday, November 17, 2008

running and jumping

These Merrells are so perfect! They are great for your kid's feet, comfy, weather-proof and they come in pink. What more could you ask?

this ones's for the girls

Since the fans of this blog, though devoted, are few I still take requests and this one has been mentioned several times so here you go. This week we are admiring shoes for girls, you know, little girls. For those of you who are howling in frustration to have to spend a whole week with shoes that do not fit you, be patient, next week is party shoe week.

PS If you have a request of your own feel free to shoot me an email and I will definitely consider it.
