sail away

These say, "I spend my weekends sailing off Nantucket." Who doesn't want to say that?

plea for publicity

Hi girls,

I am trying to build up the readership. Maybe we could get free stuff, giveaways, etc. if we had enough readers so, if you feel so inclined, feel free to add it to your links list (if you have one). Thanks for your consideration.

mint julup

I love, love, love the color on these. Your feet will be cool, your legs will look tan, you will look fashionable and classic and you will not have spent very much.

the romans are coming

Gladiators are big this summer and I have to admit I find many of them to be a bit much. These, however, I would love to wear all summer long. Simple, comfy and they make your ankles look skinny, not bad, if I do say so myself.

pretty perfect

These beauties were contributed by shoeshine reader Amber (thanks!). The feminine lines and classic construction make them appropriate for even the most formal of garden parties and the color makes your heart happy every time you happen to glimpse your feet.

pedicure required

It's the start of a new week and thus, a new theme. I know that we are already 2/3 of the way through summer but I thought we'd spend the week admiring sandals. Plus, since cooler weather is on it's way they will probably all be on sale soon.

shining stars- shoe of the week

Well girls, it's time for the ever popular shoe of the week. This beauty is by Giuseppe Zanotti, an italian designer who makes lovely shoes. They are satin studded with crystals. These would make almost anything feel just a little bit magical.

chocolate-covered croc

No actual crocodiles were harmed in the production of these adorable faux flats. Unique color combos and super affordable, fantastic.

Eloise, all grown-up

Just as pretty going as they are coming, maybe even more so. Simple and enchanting.

sophisticate with a bow on top

The detailing on this suede pair make a sophisticated color feel just a little bit flirty. Audrey Hepburn with a twist.

poppy pattern

I love the pattern on these! Modern and girly at the same time. Plus, I'm a sucker for a simple bow.

pretty in purple

Aren't these charming? The toe is cut lower to allow for the perfect amount of toe cleavage and they're purple ostrich!

ballerina girl

Admit it, at some point in your life you wanted to be a ballerina. I did. I was thrilled when ballet flats hit the scene. They are comfy and pretty all at the same time. They make any outfit feel just a little more feminine. So, this weeks' theme? Ballet flats.

fairy princess

Yesterday I finally got to wear the gold shoes I blogged about here. I wore them to church on a day when I took my two little boys-by myself. Taking my boys to church by myself is sort of like taking monkeys to church. My three-year-old is pretty good but yesterday he was feeling a little needy and grouchy and my ten-month old simply never stops moving, he climbs all over me and the pew for the entire meeting. They have a tendency to want to go opposite directions. I always finish the first meeting feeling frazzled and there are still two more hours to go. Luckily I was wearing what I have taken to calling my princess shoes (a suggestion from my three- year-old). They sparkled and shined through all three meetings and made me feel pretty even though I was a tiny bit overwhelmed. Thank heaven for pretty shoes. Sometimes they are the only thing that gets me through church.

Shoe of the Week-Yellow

The shoe of a week will often be a dream shoe, a shoe we sould consider purchasing if we were all movie stars. This weeks' is a Louboutin (sigh) it would be fantastic with a plain, neutral dress. That way everyone would focus on your fabulous feet.

stiletto brights

I love the wide ankle strap on these! They feel delicate and edgy all at the same time.

when only an allstar will do...

These make even grocery shopping or dropping the monkeys off at preschool fun!

golden trend

Usually I'm not much of a wedge girl, but for these I would definitely make an exception.

sweet saffron

Clean lines, a little shine and toe cleavage- what more could you ask for?

These are especially for Adri. An adorable flat with beautiful detailing. Lovely with almost anything and so happy on your feet!

polka-dot perfection

So feminine and flirty! I love the slightly pale color and the darling pintucks along the side. They demand a lovely pleated skirt and the perfect afternoon.

sunshine on my feet

I have been looking for the perfect pair of yellow heels. My girlfriend just bought a really fabulous pair and I am jealous. So, to make myself feel better and aid in my search, this week's theme is yellow. Here is pair one- aren't they lovely. They're not terribly expensive and they're faux, but I think they are adorable.
