This is the freshest take on a t-strap I have seen in a long time. Adore the bow. Adore.

in defense of the strappy

Oh Mr. Choo-you have really done it this time. These are absolutely perfect strappy sandals. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

I have long desired a pair of Tory Birch thongs. They are such a classic statement without being too fussy. ( I also really, really wish for a pair of her ballet flats)

hot blush

Love the blush color, the delightful shape and the fabric look of the suede.

wishful thinking

After our sojourn into the world of discounts last week I thought we'd head on over the forbidden land of luxury at Nordstrom's. Even if no one can afford any of these shoes in this economy, it turns out that drooling over them is still free.

worth the wait-shoe of the week

Usually the shoe of the week is a prohibitively expensive dream shoe but not this week. Thanks to the good people at Target you can now own this shoe for ... drum roll, please..... $6.25, that's right folks, $6.25. I have been waiting for these babies to go on sale and now can't wait for them to arrive.

raindrops keep falling

I have been after cute rain boots for a while. I can never quite justify them because it doesn't really rain here all that often. I am guessing, however, that at $24.99 my guilt about these would be minimal.

hangin' tough

These make me feel tough and sexy at the same time- not a bad combination.

flowers for angela

Pretty, pink, flower detail- what could be better for spring?

would you like mustard with that?

I can think of few colors that say summer better than yellow. Combine that with an of-the-moment shape and I am sold.

the bronze age

I am so digging these -way more exciting than plain old brown.

pretty pewter

I just ordered four pairs of sandals from Target (I have a serious shortage in the sandal department due to my very strong feelings for ballet flats) and I think these were one of them-am super excited, had already forgotten how delightful they were.

right on target

In these tough economic time I thought we would celebrate my favorite discout retailer. Vive la Target!

to be worn with a red hat

My Mom is a Red Hat Lady. I only kind of know what that means but apparently they dress up in red and purple, incorporating bright hats of course. These might be lots of fun with one of her fancy hats, after all why shouldn't her feet get to be as fancy as her head?

There is a fence along my parents property. Every summer one entire side is covered in roses. I love them. I grow them now because I loved them at home. This way we could have roses all year.

for feeling fancy

My Mom adores dressing up and I know that these would be just perfect with the cream number she wore to my wedding.

can't go wrong with a bow

I know she'd just love these, feminine and lovely pink.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


My Mom loves yellow and these are jaunty and fun and HOLY CATS! only $7.49- pardon me for just a moment while I order them..........Done. Anyway, my Mom will totally love them.

for my mom

My Mom has been staying with me and last night was lamenting her lack of fashion so this week is all about comfortable, cute shoes that even my Mom could wear.

Original Barbie

No one know a classy pin-up like Mr. Blahnik. Thank you, sir.

green with envy

Any soldier boy returning home would be thrilled to have his girl Friday show up wearing these.

red and rosy

Betcha Marilyn would've loved these. I do.

blue moon

So solid that they shouldn't be as fun to wear as I am absolutely sure that they are. Perhaps it's the blue?

modestly blushing

...because you feel so sexy in your pale pink peep-toes.

bronze baby

Perfect with a full skirt and a fruity drink.

velvety smooth

I think these are so lady-like and well- behaved, but never boring.

pin-up girls

I am completely obsessed with fifties and sixties silhouettes lately. Nipped-in waists and full skirts, feminine details and lovely high heels worn even for vacuuming. I am loving all the shoes inspired by this aesthetic and all week we will admire them.

and the winner is...

We don't yet know what Amy will choose so just in case she recently became a wealthy heiress here is Mr. Louboutin's version.

cross my heart

Criss -cross details and great shape make these a fantastic option.

a warm cabernet

Love the double strap and deep shade of these. As always from Via Spiga, beautiful lines.

getting closer

Well, Amy, how about these? They are oh, so lovely? Beautiful, feminine lines, shiny leather, pearly buttons. Sigh.

Wednesday, April 1, 2009

perfectly lady-like

I think these are a little closer to what Amy is looking for , althought she wants a heel. Aren't they lovely and polite. I want to wear them to a tea party.
