Another Shoe Sunday has arrived. Yay! The past few weeks I’ve made half-hearted attempts to amuse and entertain the boys during my shoe swooning, but this week . . . not so much. No 360 shortcuts to contemplate, no vid of sexy kitchen cows, and no promises of shrimp-centric posts . . . this is a blog for women or perhaps for men who want to know us better; you don’t have to want the shoe, you just have to understand that we do. Okay, that I do.
Last Sunday, I posted my pink ruched stilettos and got such fabulous matching suggestions that I decided to tap into your fashion expertise again this week. I bought the above pictured fabulous pair of brown cork platforms for weekend stuff . . . shopping, hanging out, grabbing drinks, lunch, dinner, whatever. Definitely not a work pump, but fun. So it gets here–I ordered it from zappos.com, quite possibly the best website on the entire internet. Seriously. I ordered it one day, and it showed up the next day (free shipping, both ways, easy returns … mmmm, lovely site.) Where was I? Oh yes, so it gets here–and is just the teensiest bit . . . well, satiny looking, shiny. But I’m so in love with the cork platform part and the cute little round toe that I think well, I’ll just try it on, if they don’t feel and look good, I’ll send them back. I slid my feet into them and was in total heaven. This shoe is sooooo comfortable I think I might have done a bit of a happy dance right there in the kitchen.
Sending it back was out of the question. But that satin shiny look gives me some problems; it’s bad enough the cork platform is (arguably) far too young for me, but that satiny shine . . . it’s so midlife crisis on the verge of reversion to adolescence. So, my challenge to you all . . . how do I wear this pump without looking like I think I’m clubbing around town without my panties ala Britney and her posse?
Here’s a better shot of the shoe, one that gives a sense of the color and texture of the upper:
(and yes, that’s my cat . . . come to see what all the excitement is about; I tried to crop her out, but her little feet were in the shot and uncroppable–is there a way to crop that isn’t straight lines?)
And now for your viewing pleasure, a fun and funny vid of crazy shoes found at zappos.com:
Oh, and Ang (inventor and inaugurator of Shoe Sunday) wanted to see my “hammer” from my previous post:
I used only one of them, of course. And yes, again with the cat feet. At least this is a different cat. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
