Slinky, Sassy, Strappy or Sexy?

Looks to me as if the designer for this Cleopatra Sandal  from Touch Ups enjoyed playing with Slinkys as a kid. Note the sassy silver  ankle strap resembles the coil. The big difference would be the shoe is adorned with a vine of Rhinestones. Another thing the two have in common is that both could make you fall head over heel down the stairs. Slinky Shoes available from  ($72.95); Slinky Toy available from  ($2.99). [phpbay]silver sandals, 2[/phpbay] … [Read more...]

Little Leopard Paws

Is this little leopard print cute or what?

Go Blue. Go White. Go Team. Go Fight.

Summer to Fall, Sandals to Boots

Is it just me, or does anyone else have a hard time trying   to figure out what to wear between  sandals and boot season?   Spring / Summer= Sleeveless tops, capris  and sandals. Fall / Winter = Turtlenecks,  jeans and boots. Today is a perfect example as  it's 70ish degrees, yet it's September. I am going to consider this Kin Ship  style from Aerosoles as my in-between shoe. The peep toe and rope wedge lean to warmer weather yet the soft leather, antique hardware and lined suede give it … [Read more...]
