A Long and Awesome year


I have been so busy for the longest time. Who is not ever busy, right..? 😉

I certainly did not avoid opportunities to obtain some new heels though. 😉

I have been working on photographing more of the heels from the deep past. I have learned, while taking these pictures, I used to purchase poor fitting heels or, I have been growing. 😉

Never the less, lets keep pressing for the wonderful warm weather! There are a few style shots in this post and I will admit, it is not always the best choice. 😉

So I say lets Spring on! 😉

These have become a go-to pair of fishing heels as they are quick and easy to get on and are very light weight. I got these from DSW in the spring of 2015.

These are a great comfortable pair of Mix No. 6 single strap vamp wedge heels also from DSW. I always like ankle straps and these certainly fit the bill.

Another pair of Mix No. 6 from DSW. They are a patent black, open toe d’orsay. A very pleasing style to me for sure; comfortable, attractive and sexy. 😉

Ok, another pair of fishing heels perhaps..? Well they can be; these great espadrilles are a comfortable wedge with an elastic instep strap. They had them in a tan as well and I may have to find them on a clearance rack at a DSW. 😉

These BCBGirls wedges are in patent black. Love the cutout in the wedge. I found these on eBay a couple years ago.

These are another great eBay find a few years ago. I like the orange suede uppers. They are a fun summer shoe not only for the color but also the cork heel and platform.

These are a laser cut wedge from DSW. I found them on clearance for just over ten dollars. The material under the laser cut is silver. Looks great when in the sun. They are made by Diba.

An aquisiton from eBay about 10 years ago. These are a brown T-strap wood wedge by Massimo. The wood is not real and other than the small sizing, they are comfortable even on my larger foot. I always go back and forth about getting rid of them but once in a while they are on the boat with me. 😉

These are a fun sandal with patent black uppers and a gold heel. I love straps and slingbacks are just awesome. This puts them together in a unique way. Found these on eBay about 10 years ago, made by Highest Heel.

A cork wedge sandal by Pulse featuring a bright yellow patent upper. I like the brightness of the yellow! Found these on eBay as well, about 8 years ago. I have had these fishing once or twice. They are a little snug with a non adjustable slingback strap. If it was a real problem I could take them to the cobbler and have the elastic replaced for more room. 😉

Here are a unique pair; they are called a ballet boot, in patent black and with a lock on the ankle strap. I have worn these 4 times, including these pictures. I tried walking in them once; 3 steps and I could not go further. These won the round of not permitting walking. I applaud those who can do it as it is certainly a skill to have. Made by Devious; I obtained these from eBay about fifteen years ago. 😉

A set of heels I also cannot walk in but love them for there looks and color. I also have some flats similar to these and I use them for slippers; they are a patent purple with those same buckles on the vamp. These are by The Highest Heel, found on eBay about 15 years ago. There are buckles on the heel cap and the vamp, a matte purple and are D’orsay style.

These sexy pair of Pleaser heels have a three strap upper and stud embellishments. A patent black and very fun. I wore these to a bar party once for eight hours; never sitting down. They are very comfortable; obtained from eBay about 12 years ago.

Another eBay find about 14 years ago; these have a jersey net covering a metallic pink upper and a pink heel. A shorter heel than I like but they were a great deal. A little snug on my foot but nothing to bad. They are made by Janis Nicole… I think. 😉

A favorite style are these clear platform heels with a double ankle strap; silver in color and obtained from eBay about 13 years ago. Very comfortable and a little stretched out. They were used by a drag queen for shows and were surprisingly in pretty good shape. Made by Sunset Strip. 😉

These next two pairs of mules have a clear upper; one in black and the other in gold. As they fit my foot on the bottom, those plastic uppers were not intended for a male foot; at least not my foot… I purchased them from eBay about 15 years ago. As they were so tight, I did not get a chance to wear them often. A very stable design however. They do not have a brand name on them so I am not sure of the manufacturer.

One of my first pair of thigh high boots; a patent red and feature a clear heel. I like the stretchy upper as it conforms to ones leg. Difficult to get them on but the stockings helped. I have larger legs as well which was part of the issue. These were made by Pleaser and purchased from eBay about 12 years ago.

Oh another favorite for spring time are these floral print platform sandals having an ankle tie and a single strap vamp. Very bright and comfortable, these were obtained from Frederick’s of Hollywood about 16 years ago.

Another great pair of heels by Pleaser are these strappy sandals featuring stud embellishments on the heel cap straps as well as the vamp. Patent black fits the tough look well; obtained from eBay about 15 years ago. 😉

These mirrored beauties are by Colin Stuart. Found on eBay about 15 years ago for a good price. The strappy upper is covered in little square mirrors, together with the silver, color changing instep and the clear heel makes these just super fun to wear and look at. For my foot, the instep cross straps were a little tight and so they sat for a long time while the mirrors started to fall off. Wish they fit better.

Here are a fun pair by Newport News the Mrs. got for me about 13 years ago. The ankle ties are fabric as well as the vamp. The animal print wedge is just awesome. 😉 Not always the easiest to slip into as it takes some finesse but are comfortable no doubt. 😉

This pair of sandals have a satin vamp as well as satin ankle ties. The diamond buckle on the vamp was not in the best place for me as they rubbed a little but I attribute that to my male foot. 😉 Made by Anne Michelle and found on eBay about 12 years ago.

A black two strap suede sandal by Frederick’s of Hollywood, obtained about 14 years ago. The suede started to shed and I wish the instep strap had a little more adjustment; other than that they were so comfortable and universal. 😉

A sexy white platform sandal with mirror embellishments on the vamp and instep strap. The instep strap needed some elastic for a better fit for me but I am sure they would fit the ladies better. Obtained from eBay about 12 years ago, made by Jante.

These sexy patent black platform sandals are made by Pleaser. Obtained from eBay about 14 years ago. The vamp was always tight which deters me from wearing them often. All though they are very tall heels, they were very stable.

These Coup D’Etat slingback, pointed toe pumps have a patent pink toe cap and a tan printed upper. A shorter heel than I care for but they are cool looking. I am not all that fond of the long pointed toe with these but they are a bright a fun heel. Obtained from eBay about 13 years ago.

Another long pointed toe heel with a tie style ankle strap are these patent back closed toe heels by Frederick’s of Hollywood. I obtained these about 14 years ago. They were always a little narrow for me in the toe-box which is common with the pointer styles for me. 😉

These are another wonderful pair of Frederick’s of Hollywood heels, purchased about 14 years ago. A strappy mule in beige on a platform for extra comfort. The strap’s again were a little snug on these feet which prevented them from being worn often. 😉

these are a silver sandal in a matte finish with a single strap vamp and a heel cap. The strap on these made them a less than desired fit. But they still look great. They are made by Frederick’s of Hollywood and obtained about 14 years ago.

Another pair by Newport News given to me by the Mrs. are these black suede tie-up, open toed pumps; very fun looking. A poor fit for my foot (once again the male thing). Received about 13 years ago. 😉

One of the rare times I obtained a pair of heels from Target; these Xhilaration velcro sandals have a matte finish, chunky heel and small platform. They were great fitting as the vamp was also a velcro adjustable strap. They were worn very often; obtained about 14 years ago. 😉

Xhilaration

These were an eBay find and completely purchased for the appeal of the wood heel. These ankle tie-up sandals are a fabric upper with bead work on the vamp. Purchased about 14 years ago and made by Report (I think). The canvas was not a comfortable fit for me with these.

Resort

These split toe sandals are by Frederick’s of Hollywood. They are white, semigloss finish and have a small platform. If they were just a little more comfortable, I would be caught in a type of flip flops, I would find acceptable. 😉 Obtained these about 14 years ago.

These are a dull red, block heeled slingback pump by Sam & Libby, Found on eBay about 14 years ago and purchased cause of the extremely low price. The vamp was not a good fit for me and they are certainly not that attractive. Yes, I can admit that. 😉

These are a metallic green split toe sandal found on eBay about 14 years ago. They are a very attractive heel and fun color but not a great fit. I like the zipper detail and they did not like me. They cut in a little which resulted in them not being worn. Made by Renica .

Here are a pair of Worthington slingback, open-toe pumps in patent black with a pewter panel. Very attractive and slightly sexy. They fit well and were a great find on eBay about 12 years ago.

Another pair I would admit to not being attractive; not to say you might think differently, just not as appealing to me. A real cheap find on eBay about 14 years ago, these shoes are by Stefani and are a crocodile printed black patent upper with a long almond toe and slingback strap.

And finally for the conclusion of this post we have a sneaker inspired sandal by Bakers. Found on eBay about 11 years ago they have a velcro enclosure on the ankle strap and a single strap vamp. The fit was not the best or I would have worn them out a bit. 😉
