Pre-Fall Excitement and Blues


I have been enjoying my summer off. Fishing, sewing, cleaning, repairing, and yes, looking at heels and in some cases buying. It would seem our summer here has been short lived and when I say short I mean super short. Like two weeks worth. The end of July and start of August has been highs in the low 70′s and high 60′s. Throw in some clouds, wind, rain and it is now fall… The kicker is the warmth did not start till the end of June… ;)I have been trying to limit myself a lot as I need to get more of my shoes I currently own, worn out in public and photographed for all to see here. ;) I have been doing ok with all that but I still find myself finding a new pair I must have.I have been enjoying the action type shots for my blog. I guess I consider my shots of me wearing the shoes to dinner and have some sort of jeans on as action shots along with the ones I take while I am on the road at work. I have been trying to be more diligent about bringing some heels with me to the places I go to get some of these photos taken. It is adding a little more fun to the whole blog experience. ;)When I wear my heels out to dinner it is often a Saturday evening and to the same restaurant we always go to. One of our favorite servers asks often to see what I am wearing and does like them. The other staff has been observed checking out my footwear repeatedly. Not many comments from them but someday I am sure I will get some. ;)
Our server friend has told us about the gossip of me wearing heels and that has induced more views and even people walking past our table just for a glimpse. Again, someday things will move more towards the questions I am sure. ;)I have some new shoes to show you and some old ones. Many have been purchased some time ago and have been waiting for a showing.I was asked to also include more of my outfit when I take a picture of my dinner shoes. I have not been successful with that as of yet. I will need to ask the Mrs. to help with those and often she is not present while I am taking pictures.

One more note, I have been allowing my wonderful manicurist to go wild on the designs for my toes and in some cases offer ideas with multi color designs. Feel free to comment on those as well. My hands are always the same: a french style white tip, narrow and short. Not sure I will go outside that box much there. I have had a couple snowflakes last winter on my hands. Felt that was the limit. ;)

Hope you enjoy.

These Michael Kors sandals are dark brown and light tan with velcro straps on the vamp and ankle strap. I had to get some velcro strips to add length around the ankle strap and they fit awesome! Wore them to dinner and I would wear them often! Our favorite server loved them. Obtained these from eBay a few months ago. An awesome fit with the velcro. The pedicure is a design for the fourth of July. A combination of a type of yellow and covered with a type of orange to create the cool base color and the wonderful art of fireworks. ;)

I was asked to show more of my outfits I wear to dinner with heels. This is as good as it gets with me taking the picture. A simple ribbed white short and black jeans. I do not often get too crazy with the outfits and I will try to get better at getting pictures of them in the future. ;)

A pair Of Jessica Simpsons I have photographed in the past. Finally wore them to dinner. A great color and comfortable shoe.

An eBay purchase a few years ago. Something I have worn fishing and may not wear to dinner. The vamp embellishments make it a little feminine to me. I like the wood platform and the ankle ties are just awesome. They have the espadrille wedge and are a dark brown, made by Matisse.

I am sure I have put these up before. These are a cork wedge in medium brown T-strap sandal by Colin Stuart. The straps are braided and are very flexible. An extremely comfortable fit. I have fished in these often. I wore them to a medical appointment a couple weeks ago. I changed into another shoe before going in… Yea, I just could not do it that day alone. ;) The pedi was changed at the last minute. I had a cool blue color but the gale next to me liked it and got to it first. There was not enough left for me so the other colors I picked were these. I said do a two tone and at an angle. This is what I got. ;)

These are a black suede strappy upper with a back zip closure by Jessica Simpson. I obtain these a few years ago from DSW. The vamp straps are elastic so the fit is good for my larger foot. The Mrs. told me after dinner these made her more nervous for some reason. Not sure of the logic but she stated it was a very open shoe. I have worn brighter and more open ones before but I think it may have been different as I kept my pant legs rolled up a little this time exposing more of the shoes. ;)

A holiday gift from the Mrs. this last Christmas. These electric blue heel less wedges are by Styluxe. She acquired them from eBay. They are so fun. I am going to try to wear the out someday soon. They are a little snug fitting but I have a hard time finding them in a size 12. These are an 11. If you have ever wondered how it is to walk in these, I will say if you sit your weight back to much, you will get unstable. Other than that, they are no different to walk in. A very cool feeling. ;)

These are a purchase from eBay a couple months ago. My very first Christian Louboutins! A Dorse’ style open toe pump with a ruched vamp and heel cap. The classic red bottoms size 41. Not a size that works well for me!!! I will be selling these on eBay as there is no point in these sitting in a box. They should be on display with a happy foot in them. This is my latest pedicure. If you cannot make it out, is is the face of Ironman. I think it rocks! ;)

Another very recent eBay acquisition. These multi colored ankle strap sandals by Rouge are very fun to wear. I might get gutsy and wear these out someday. Very comfortable and roomy.

A pair of very light beige suede pumps by Steve Madden. I wore these out a few months ago. Learned something; the legs on tables are not clean at all!!! I got some marks on these shoes from that and I am not happy about it. I like the clean look of these and that is not going to be kept if I touch a table leg. ;)

Well, I think that is good for now… I have been taking a pair of heels or two with me every week to my work location as mentioned so it is possible I may get a few more blogs up quicker than I have been. So until next time, I bid you farewell. ;)

    • I cannot agree more on the sentiment for these shoes. They are awesome. For me the velcro vamp helps for my wider feet for comfort as do the ankle strap. The great thing is having the ability to get some velcro strips to extend the ankle strap. If I was not able to do that these shoes would be in a box and worn in the house for short times as the ankle strap needed to be very tight to fasten. ;)
      Other than all that they are great looking shoes and an awesome color. I am liking michael Kors a lot lately. Hopefully I keep finding great fitting shoes by this designer. ;)
      Thank you for stopping by and for the great comment. See you again soon. ;)

    • A wonderful comment and most appreciated.
      I have worn a few pair fishing. I may not have posted the others yet, but I will do my best to inform of those in which I have.
      Thank you for stopping by and the great appreciation. ;)

  1. I can’t believe summer’s almost over already! In the south, we expect at least another month or 2 :) I love your louboutins! they are amazing! too bad they’re not the size you had hoped, that is a real bummer. I really like your toenail art and hope you continue wit that, as it’s a creative way to add a little extra pizazz:) thanks for sharing your lovely collection- I really do enjoy seeing what new gems you’ve acquired:)xo

    • Summer is never long enough. In the south it is summer and than not summer… Winter is not like the north… But, it all has its appeal. ;)
      Thank you dear for the wonderful support. I am bummed about the Louboutins for sure. Perhaps the next pair will be better. ;)
      Keep an eye out. I have already photographed a few more pair. I just might get another post before the snow falls. ;)
