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?

high society

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

party polka-shoe of the week

Oh Betsey- you have perfected the art of the polka dot. I am aching to wear these to a holiday party. ACHING!

power polka

It's Betsy J. again and I have to tell you this isn't the last time you'll see her this week. The woman knows her way around a polka dot. As evidenced by these, they make me wish I was some sort of high powered exec. I would wear these with my suits. Still, I'm sure they'd also be fab for Friday's date night.

polka in blue

We all know I love blue but the bow and lacing on the back of these makes my heart go pitter-patter.

Thursday, November 13, 2008

hot for dots

Love these. They would fall into the rotation often at my house because they would be the perfect, unexpected element to lots of outfits. Heaven forbid we ever be boring.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Oo-la-la polka

Ooooo- look at the pink! So simple and pretty and girly. J'adore!

pin-up polka

Do these not make you want to slap on a little red lipstick and wave your hair? Perfect 40's pin-up shoes. I want to wear them to a stuffy party with a grown up lbd.

betsey's polka

Oh, Betsey Johnson (via her Betsteyville line), how do I love thee, let me count the ways. These make me so happy. They are just delightful, you know like creme brulee done exactly right.

polka craze

Lately, I have had a craving for polka dots. Maybe boring winter is making me wish for something a little whimsical. At any rate welcome to polka dot week!

red hot-shoe of the week

You must, must, must have a great pair of reds. Any shape you want but I recommend a heel. They are remarkably versatile, they'll go with anything, given the right attitude. You will never feel as sexy as you do wearing a great red shoe.

needing nude

Nudes are a requirement. They can be worn with anything and make your bare legs look a million miles long. This is never, ever bad.

bold brights

I realize that this is a personal preference but I think it's necessary to have lots of bright colored ballet flats. They are practical and oh so delightful, all at the same time. Even better with a few special details. They are the love of my shoe life.

Thursday, November 6, 2008


This is new to my must -have list but I stick by my decision. I think you must have a great flat boot. It's a little more casual than a heeled boot. They are more comfy and let's face it, more practical.

party on

Next on the list, a metallic party shoe. The metallic neutrality guarantees that they will match just about any fancy outfit you can find and add just a touch of sparkle at your feet. Always sexier and more interesting than basic black for a special occasion. (Carrie these are perfect for your red dress!)

booted out

We all need a great pair of tall boots. A pair with perfect lines and soft leather. We just do.

back in black

Every woman must have a great pair of black pumps (or three). These are lovely. Sleek, shiny and perfect. They make almost any outfit feel chic.

back to basics

Well girls, it's time to get back to basics. This week will feature shoes every woman should have a version of in her closet, according to me. These are the building blocks of a lovely shoe wardrobe.

how to break an ankle in 3 minutes or less-shoe of the week

Umm, k, Alexander McQueen, I don't really know even where to start either these. I am, however, pretty sure, that my life insurance policy doesn't allow me to wear anything like this. Pity.

my favorites, destroyed

I had no idea that you could ruin a a ballet flat but apparantly, given the right amount of effort, you can.
