As I have been relentlessly trying to make some progress reducing of the stacks of shoes not being photographed, I can say I feel a dent has been made. The past few weeks I have been bring two to three pairs of heels with me on my business trips and photographing them. Some of the shoes I have to show you are recent acquisitions meaning in the last year and some are from several years ago. I also have been wearing a few out to dinner as usual but I have been restricting myself, ever so strongly and nearly failing, at not acquiring many new purchases. As an example just before writting this post I went to DSW.com and filled my shopping cart with nearly $500.00 of new shoes! Currently there is a double point offer and $40.00 off purchases over $200.00 and to make it even worse I have a free tote offer I can get for the Mrs. I think they know I am vulnerable to the need of new heels.
So, here is the show.
One of the many DSW purchases last winter. A purple sandal with embellishments on the heels by Mix No. 6. Very comfy.
A eBay purchase this spring by Styluxe. A sculpted wedges heels in patent black. Very fun to walk in. This designer does run a little snug. I will have to get a stretcher to accommodate many of the shoes by Styluxe.
A color block almond toe pump in black and white with a cone shape heel by Fredericks of Hollywood. I obtained these about five years ago. Comfortable and fun.
A cork wedge with a plaid slingback, open toed upper and ring embellishments on the vamp by American Eagle. Obtained these a couple weeks ago from eBay. Certainly a good shoe for fishing.
Wore these to dinner last weekend. Patent black ankle strap slingback open toe sandal by Steve Madden from DSW last year. If I remember correctly I found these in California. Real comfortable and attracted some attention for sure.
Styluxe from eBay, a green spike embellished heel less wedge with an instep strap. The Mrs. gave me these for Christmas last year. Not sure I will get out in these but I want to.
Another Styluxe Christmas gift, multicolor patchwork platform pump.A couple small patent details and suede patches.
Super high heel sandal with embellishment details on a clear vamp by Jante. An eBay purchase roughly eight years ago. The clear vamps are usually a tight fit for me. I find them more comfortable with a nylon sock of some kind.
One of my favorite acquisitions from eBay this spring. A spacy looking silver heel with suede uppers and holographic attachments, zipper back by Bumper. I might get these to the cobbler to add some elastic to the back sides for more comfort. A lot of fun to wear. I will point out one of my favorite pedicure paint jobs in these photos.
Steve Madden spike backed satin ankle strap sandal from DSW. Last year I found these in Michigan. A little tight fitting for me but fun to wear. Satin is not very forgiving and can cause a little cutting-in around the toebox areas.
A purchase from Fredericks of Hollywood about eight years ago. A mule style pointy toe pump with a tie fit around the vamp. Not a real fa of the long toes but for the time they were fun.
A purchase from eBay a month ago, this wedge by Dolce by Mojo Moxy has a patent black vamp, elastic instep strap and a sling style back. And extremely light and comfortable shoe. I also got the Mrs. a pair with a violet purple vamp. She loves them! Do not think I will get these out anywhere but the boat for fishing with the pink but I might get daring.
One of a favorites from ShoeDazzle, a cork wedge with a gold heel tip cap with a T-strap upper in visual green by Scene.The material is stretch and soft. It conforms to your foot well. That being said it feels like a very cheap material. Happy I got them for a low low price.
An eBay purchase about five years ago, a two strap sandal by Pierre Dumas in blue satin with a diamond embellished buckle on the instep strap. The heels have a unique look to them and I do not think I got a good shot of them. Again the satin is not very forgiving and makes for a tight fit on me. A nice color and certain fun to wear for short periods of time.
Thank you for your time. With my commitment to get pictures taken of my heels by bringing them on my trips, I may have another post sooner than I will have an idea to write about.
I appreciate your comments. See you again soon.
