The 2nd & 3rd Days I Owned Louboutin Pumps

Remember the first pair of Christian Louboutin black pumps I ordered from Tradesy? A size 37.5 was too small that I couldn't even get my feet into them. Luckily Tradesy lets you return any order for any reason, and they even pay for the postage to send them back. So I sent those back, and when my credit was back in my account, I ordered size 38 in a slingback pump. I really wanted a classic pump, but the slingback pumps were a size larger and less expensive than the classic pumps. But … [Read more...]

Open-Toed Boots Take Center Stage

Remember all the old fashion rules? Well, forget everything you mom taught you. The new rules...there are no rules. It’s more than okay to wear white after Labor Day. You should mix patterns. In fact it’s encouraged. Yes, you are allowed to don open-toed shoes with tights (just make sure there are no toe seems or reinforcements showing).

The Day I Owned Louboutin Black Pumps

I ordered the above beautiful Christian Louboutin black pumps complete with original bag, box and packaging. I had Tradesy … [Read more...]

L.K. Bennett Monique Cut Out Leather Pumps

Recently I was a guest on the Steve Harvey show (details to follow). They had strict dress code restrictions. My dress had to be a solid color (not black or white) with no stripes or patterns. The dress that I had brought along was too similar to the guest in the segment before me, so they gave me a red Calvin Klein dress to wear. The guest before me turned out to be Bethenny Frankel, who obviously has great taste! The wardrobe guy didn't like the shoes I had brought along either. I had … [Read more...]

Fancy For Flip Flop Wedges

Remember when I started this blog almost a decade ago, and I hated flip flops? Well, I must be getting soft in my old age or else my feet are callousing that the divider between my toes doesn't bother me near as much as it used to. In fact, I've been wearing my Coach flip flops religiously as of lately. I prefer shoes, all shoes, even flip flops with a bit of heel as flat shoes sometimes now make me feel like I'm falling over backwards. So when I ran into ShopKo for some errands, I had to … [Read more...]
