red hot embers-shoe of the week

These are from the Ralph Lauren Ember collection. Aren't they lovely? Feminine and simple and the perfect shade of deep red. I am just going to gaze at them for a little longer.

if only it was spring

Aren't these delightful? I wish it was June.....

satiny and sweet

I love the satin in conjunction with the casual design. I need some new red ballets and these might just be them.

The shape of the heels on these is delightful. I am digging the perfect lines and the perferation detail.

Don't you want to wear these for your Valentine?

polka, polka, polka

The polka dots are so cheerful, they might make me forget it's still January.

These are a picnic for your feet. LOVE the ric-rac!

seeing red

I am not fond of winter. Once Christmas is over, I really see no need for it. I am oh, so tired of being cold. I know that we had red week last fall but I think it's time again. It will make me feel better about the fact that winter will continue for a couple more months, even if I stare at red shoes all day.

shiny, pretty things- shoe of the week

Beautiful! Classic, understated and definitely unique. Sigh.

from the back

Admit it, Mr Kors totally knows what he's doing when it comes to shoes. I love the stripe detail on the heel. One more reason to watch you walk away.

way to be understated

So simple, so perfect. Just the perfect touch of interesting.

Dear Betsy,

Love, Me

good monkey

Oh, these are wonderful. Graphic and feminine. I am loving Naughty Monkey lately.

striped darlings

Delightful- love the color (also available n lime green), love the soft, simple shape in contrast to the sharp stripe.

a bad case of stripes

I just ordered a pair of striped ballet flats and they got me thinking. Stripes are kicky and young and fun and make me feel like spring is right around the corner. Welcome to stripes week.

buyers' remorse-shoe of the week

So last spring I bought designer strappy, yellow platforms. I like these much, much better and they are $10.99!

forever in plaid

I must say that Lela Rose's line for Payless has been hit-and-miss. These are definitely in the hit category. The peppy, clean print will be delightful for spring-$29.99.

clubbing fever

These feel like they made for Studio 54-very disco-licious. In four colors for $17.99.

emerald isle

Aren't these enchanting?! They also come in purple and are on sale for $12.99! You probably need them in both colors.

sparkly sigerson

These are Sigerson Morrison-for $18.49! I can't see how you could possibly do without them.

bronze baby

Love these- lots of pin-up sex appeal. Neutral color makes them totally versatile. On sale for $15.75!

Monday, January 12, 2009

shiny and snakey

These are absolutely delicious. They are also $12.49-must have!!!


What with all the delightful sales going on, I thought it was about time we had another discount week. Woo-hoo!

dainty female-shoe of the week

I love the delicacy of these. So feminine and beautiful. I sort of want to swoon in public so that some large, handsome man would have to fan me and bring me smelling salts and eventually carry me to a fainting couch, all the while I would be showing my lovely shoes to their best advantage.

peonies in January

Purple silk. Sigh, that by itself would really be plenty but, then, if you add in the polka dots. Sublime.

Friday, January 9, 2009

made to be broken

I love the super-deep peep-toe on these. Very sexy toe cleavage. Also, I have this thing with pink and orange together, something abou rule-breaking I think.

Thursday, January 8, 2009

it's a bird, it's a plane....

I want to be Lois Lane so that I can wear these while exposing corruption and evil in Metropolis and during little evening flights with my favorite caped avenger. Sexy in a powerful, modern woman kind of a way.

pretty baby

J.Crew has several different shoes with this fabulous crackle metallic finish and I am beginning to adore it. It's almost pearlescent with a very modern, rich feel. And aren't these in baby pink delightful? I think so too.

drive me crazy

These are driving mocs. I love the idea of a lifestyle that requires adorable green suede shoes just for driving. Obviously, you would also need driving gloves and an enormous silk scarf.

Did you know they had pythons in Italy? Me neither, but apparently they do because some lovely Italian person made these. Aren't they pretty?

join the crew

Lately I have been finding all kinds of fabulous finds over at J. Crew so this week I will highlight seven of them- and believe me we could go on a lot longer than that- these people know how to make a delightful shoe!

vamp it up, baby-shoe of the week

These are by Barbara Bui- with whom I admit I have not been formerly familiar. Obviously she is extremely talented. Sigh- these are delectable.

Saturday, January 3, 2009

print it

I have to say I am digging J.Crew lately. Loving the quirky print and classically beautiful design.

Friday, January 2, 2009

like water for chocolate

I didn't think I'd care for this sort of shoe but oh how I do- I am already building whole outfits around them in my brain. I always wanted to play sexy secretary.

party like it's 1999

There is no party that you are going to that wouldn't be made better by these sparklies. Happy New Year!
