So, I am on a short assignment in a place not known of by the population outside of this town unless you have left this town in search of other things.
There is something to be said about small towns. Slow pace of life, people express greetings everywhere you go even if they have to yell it across a parking lot; even to strangers, healthy cooking is not common and fine dining is certainly lacking…
People are very nice. I have not seen many high heels. The only shoe shop is a Payless and there was not much to see in it.
I came prepared by bringing four pairs of my older heels needing yet to be photographed and a outfit to do it in. As there has not been much to do here and the weather is still resembling something closer to the end of winter / start of spring / start of fall, I have been able to sit in my uncomfortable room and take some picture. ;)
So here we go. ;)
First are some Colin Stuart Sandals. These have a suede cover on the platform and heel. Brown straps and some awesome stud detail. They had other straps around the instep; I had to remove them for a better fit. I obtained these a few years ago from ebay. They do not look like they ft well in a couple pics but when they warm up my foot settles in and they fit nicely.
Here are some black ribbon tie booties with cutout detail & they have a little shimmer to them. If I remember correctly, the Mrs. obtained these for me from the Mall of America a few years ago.
Another Ebay purchase roughly 5 years ago. A pair of Nine & Company black sandals, a matte finish to the leather, giraffe print on the insole and cutouts on the vamp straps. These are very comfy and a quick pair to put on.
These next ones are by Ballistic; another pair from ebay several years ago. Black patent with a silver instep and very strappy. The heel is chunky and have a great shape to them. Here you can see the outfit I chose to take some of these pictures in. It is a black and grey zebra print skirt from Macy’s and some Jessica Simpson blue footless tights.
As an added bonus, I found some pictures I already took from a few new pair I recently obtained. So here are those gems… ;)
First is one of my new favorites; Coach open toe pumps in tan with their signature logo print fabric and a thicker heel covered with a patent material. They are a little snug as Coach certainly did not intend these to be styled on the male foot but nothing I cannot deal with. Wore these to our favorite restaurant with jeans. Certainly was a challenge as they do stand out. ;) A DSW purchase.
These are by Rocket Dog, a pair of their wedge sneakers with velcro straps. Purchased from DSW. Very comfy and the Mrs. likes these a lot… As you can imagine they do not look like a heel… Well at least they hide well… ;)
Another pair of wedge sneakers; these are by Coach. Again very comfortable. Tie up with a leather lace. The heel is a little lower than I prefer but I could not pass up on some Coach items. Obtained these from Macys online.
From DSW a pair of Jessica Simpson Square open toe slingbacks with a gold instep. They had them in black and every store I visited, even online, they were out. I really liked the style so I had to get them in white. They may get out in public some day… ;)
Another great DSW find in New york, on clearance are these black almond toe platform pumps by Enzo Angiolini. Very comfortable. I have worn these to dinner, sat outside, it started to rain and from all the extra moving around several people had the opportunity to see me in these awesome heels. When I took these pictures I was wearing some red thigh highs and a garter belt. I do wear them sometimes but this is the first time I have them in a picture. ;)
The last ones I will add in here are the Steve Maddens platform sandals with a zipper back in black. Another clearance item from a DSW in New York. For my male foot they are a little tight in the area of the instep. As many of this particular style are for me. ;)
Thank you for visiting and please leave some more of your wonderful comments. ;)
Until we meet again. ;)
