Red Bottom Love

Don’t go thinking kinky thoughts on me now from the post title – well, unless you want to 😉  I’ve been absent from this blog for so long because I’ve been very busy with other endeavors which did not involve me looking too terribly post worthy.  Since my last post I’ve become a grandmother again and have spent much time loving on the little one, running around in either hiking shoes or Chucks and then there was that one day when the older grands and I all wore fleece onesies.  But for Valentine’s Day I got from my sweetie the present of three new pair of shoes that work work work work work for my “this ain’t your average Nana” look.

Here is one pair and let me say that while they aren’t sky high (how some of you can stand let alone walk in So Kates is beyond me; you have mad skills there) they are still sexy as heck and I can walk and dance and be comfortable in these.  I’m about this close to returning one of the other pairs for these in nude.  The Christian Louboutin Iriza patent leather D’Orsay pump found here.  Similar here and here.

Until next time ♥

Here it is the last day of August and I’m not ready for the end of summer or the end of wearing sandals and dare I say it, flip flops too! I know there will still be plenty of warm weather to go but it never ceases to get to me when I’m dressed for one season but the stores have all things out for the next season.  In this case it’s these pumps by Aquazzura.  I wasn’t exactly feeling the block heel trend initially and then I hurt my knee jogging and higher heels had to be put on the back burner for awhile 😦

I tried these on at the store and fell in love with them but besides the price ($725.00) I can’t purchase anything fall/winter when I’m still running the air conditioner because it’s so hot and humid outside.  Maybe around October if I save my pennies I might get them.

 

Until next time ♥

Manolo or Choo?

Once upon a time in a land far far away…  Actually, back in 1998 a show called Sex and The City premiered and my eyes were opened to all of the amazing fashions out there that I did not know about living in the Midwest.  When SATC first came out I was deep into being a mommy and basically wore what worked and was easy to wash.  But watching this show I had dreams of being like the ladies of this show.  Let me rephrase that, I wanted to wear clothes like them not have sex escapades like them.  I did try a Flirtini once and the drink wasn’t half bad.

When the first SATC movie came out I went to see it with a friend of mine and I fell in love with the shoes that Carrie eventually married Big in.  Those gorgeous blue satin Manolo Blahnik ‘Hangisi’ shoes which now come in a rainbow of colors.  Nobody to this day that I know of calls these shoes by their name, they are always referred to as “Carrie’s wedding shoes.”  We all dreamed of owning these shoes and being romantically swept off our feet – blah blah blah.

Today I went shoe shopping at Saks and I HAD to finally try them on.  I needed to go up a full size in them because of the cut and pitch of the shoe.  I feel as though I have finally fulfilled that fantasy of wearing “those” SATC shoes.  The pair I tried on were navy colored but what the heck!  Close enough.

SATC Manolos

While I was there I noticed they had their pre-sale racks out.  Uh oh!!  And look at what I found on them.  Normally I cannot wear Jimmy Choo shoes because they are just too narrow for me and I don’t have a wide foot.  But there they were and on a 30% off sale too.  Yeah – had to try these on too and they fit just great!  A first for me and this brand.

 

Sorry if the image is a bit fuzzy, forgot my camera and cell phones were being a bit temperamental.  But I think the pink shoes go quite well with my rolled up boyfriend jeans and my striped pink shirt.  While I could rock these shoes with the jeans I was wearing,  I think I’d wear a silk shirt instead or wear this shirt with some skinny jeans and the shoes.

In the end I came home with a new pair of shoes but which ones do you think I picked?  Which one would you choose?

 

Until next time ♥
