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. 😉

Mossimo

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. 😉

Pulse

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.

The Highest Heel

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.

These are a ankle strapped sandal in patent black featuring a square heel (Not seen well here). These Pleaser heels were obtained  from eBay about 14 years ago. Very simple and sexy. 😉

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. 😉

Newport News

Another one of my favorite finds from Frederick’s of Hollywood; featuring a double ankle strap, these single strap vamp, clear platform heels in gold are just perfect to attract attention. Extremely comfortable and cannot see them ever go out of style. 😉

These strappy sandals can also be considered cage style. The best fitting as they tie entirely from the vamp to the ankle straps. Got these about 14 years ago and are by Frederick’s of Hollywood.

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.

These are a pair of gladiator style, single vamp strap sandals in bright yellow by Frederick’s of Hollywood. They are easy to get into as the ankle strap has a zipper. Obtained these about 12 years ago.

Frederick's of Hollywood

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 silver strappy mule by Frederick’s of Hollywood, obtained about 14 years ago. These were a little snug on my foot so I hardly wore them but they are a fun pair of summer heels. 😉

Frederick's of Hollywood

Frederick's of Hollywood

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 are an eBay find about 13 years ago. A strappy sandals made by Tahany, in pink and feature a printed insole. Very fun for the summer. 😉

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.

Coup D'Etat

Coup D'Etat

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. 😉

Frederick's of Hollywood

Frederick's of Hollywood

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. 😉

Frederick's of Hollywood

These silver spaghetti strap ankle tied sandals are from Frederick’s of Hollywood and obtained about 14 years ago. I really liked the unique vamp which split at the big toe.Very fun and perfect for the summer. 😉

Another favorite and yes I have a lot of favorites, are these holographic open toed backless pumps. I so wish they fit better cause they are an awesome looking pair of heels. Obtained them from eBay about 14 years ago they are made by Ellie.

Ellie

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. 😉

Newport News

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

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.

Frederick's of Hollywood

Frederick's of Hollywood

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. 😉

Sam & Libby

Sam & Libby

These animal print, pointed to pumps have an elastic ankle strap and a clear section of material in the instep straps. They are by Frederick’s of Hollywood and obtained about 14 years ago.

An animal print open-toed pump by Newport News; not a good fit as you may see here. They are a nice looking shoe but not a good sizing for me. Obtained about 13 years ago.

Newport News

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 .

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.

Worthington

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.

Stefani

Stefani

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. 😉

Bakers

I am getting closer to the end of the old and will only be featuring the new. 😉

I am very happy to be seeing so many people view my blog. I cannot thank you enough for all the support and fantastic comments. I also would like to extend a monument of thanks for the patience exhibited, waiting for this next post. Never know when I will be back but hopefully it is sooner than later.

Please like, feel free to comment and I will see you all again soon. 😉

The Eternal Wait


Here we are, the conclusion of February, the beginning of March and thinking “When is the warm weather going to start?” Perhaps the thoughts are a little more aggressive; “I have had enough of the ~bleep bleep~ cold!” 😉

How ever we express our displeasure with the winter temperatures we are all after the same thing; fun in the warm sun! 😉

Whether it is to conduct activities outside, wearing lighter cloths, dresses, skirts or to just enjoy the sun on our skin one thing certainly is on my mind… Heels! 😉 Yes, I am a little strange in that way. But here is the fun part; it is not only for me to wear them out more comfortably but to also see all the fantastic gals in their fabulous footwear as well. 😉

Took a little vacation earlier in the month of February and only brought along one pair of heels. I have a few photos of them in this post along with the others I have purchased recently; yes still with the shameful, poor conduct of purchasing more heels but I also have got through a few more pairs from the past.

To make room for the better and more recent styles, I have been collecting the heels I do not fit into well or do not find myself in the position of wearing, to pass them on to others. I will be selling some I am sure but many are just going to be handed out to the good will stores. I have given some to a friend of the family recently who happens to find it difficult obtaining heels to fit. Discovered this to be true even with the selections I offered. But some were found to be a good match. 😉

 

On with the display! Enjoy. 😉

 

First up are the most recent acquisition from DSW are these strappy tie up sandals in a mate black are by Jessica Simpson. I do not recall but these may have been on clearance as well. I ordered them on line. I wore them a few times while on our vacation earlier in February. Very comfortable heel and hope to get them out to dinner. The best part is the tie up which allows one to adjust the upper to fit your feet perfectly. 😉

Jessica Simpson

These wedges by Steve Madden also from DSW are tan and black. The ankle strap has a velcro type closure and the cover of the wedges is a fabric. Certainly a fishing shoe this summer. I will admit I may have posted these before and I will further my admission to not checking to make sure. 😉

These sheer or mesh upper pumps have a gold rectangular shaped heel & gold bottom and a patent toe cap. Comfortable and sexy; most certainly an elegant shoe. I will wear them with jeans to dinner some day; they are an awesome find. I was worried at first thinking they would be to tight but they are comfortable. Obtained from DSW made by Two Lips. 😉

Found these in a local DSW and they come in some fun bright colors. These are by Mix No. 6; a nude platform pump. Slightly snug on me but not terrible. They have a unique pattern in the material; I was not able to get a decent shot depicting that however. A great Value as well; if I recall they were regular priced around $35.

Mix No. 6

Another DSW clearance item ordered from online are the Levity open toe Dorsey pumps in black and tan. The black is a smooth material where as the tan is a suede. A little snug around the toe box area on me but I find that ok so the shoe does not slip off while walking.

A Steve Madden Dorsey pointed toe pump that fits wonderfully! Love the cobalt blue to box; goes well with the snake skin texture of the heel cap. DSW sure gets a lot of my attention and when I can find a blue I like, I am going to have to get as much as I can. 😉

Found these Steve Madden Platform pumps on clearance in another local DSW. They have a quilted pattern and are comfortable. You may see a bit of loose stitching on one of the toe boxes; I think this was the reason for the clearance. I personally do not mind as they have no effect on the shoes. I like the semigloss finish on this particular style upper and black is always a good color. I felt I should try some of my legwarmers out while on my last job as the cold weather certainly was a good motivator. I think these went very well. 😉

My first pair of Material Girl heels ever. These patent nude sandals with an ankle strap was the discovery for this designer. They are comfortable and I do find them appealing. DSW online store was where I found them.

These are a pair of Spiky marbled blue open toe pumps with a bow embellishment by Herstyle. I found these on eBay. They look great, fit fine and feel extremely cheap when walking in them. They were very inexpensive on eBay and after this experience I am not sure I will purchase this brand again. A friend of the Mrs. sister loves them and I may hand them off to him.

Lastly on this post is a Christmas gift from the Mrs. this last season. By Pleaser are these purple platform pumps with an instep strap black, ribbon & frilly embellishments. The purple has these great pinstripes and I just love the look.

The End is Here


The end of another year. As we all ask; “Where did it go”? Well, it was not any faster than the last year, and it is never slower, as some days may feel. We get so busy the days seem to disappear quickly making the year suddenly come to an end. What is the down side..? We can miss the fun stuff or forget about the fun stuff we experienced. Well, I am here to bring the fun to the surface one last time before the year concludes. With that I also want to thank all of you who visit my blog. For those who choose to follow my blog and/or leave a comment, I offer an added amount of gratitude. I have been gaining confidence to go out in my heels and at times expose more of them in lieu of covering them up. More family members are aware of my desire to wear heels as well as some of the Mrs. friends.

I have obtained some more heels at the end of this year and that means I have not been doing a good job reducing my shopping. I may have to start finding heels I will not wear out and begin selling them on eBay. I am sure I will buy more 😉 but at least they will be in the hands of someone who will wear them.

Hope you had a happy holiday and I wish you all a very Happy New Year!!! High Heels for All!!! 😉

Up first are a pair of Betsy Johnson’s from DSW. They have a fantastic blue hue not depicted well in a picture. The bottoms have a great powder blue color as well. I obtained these from out of town and when I checked out, the gentleman at the counter was disappointed I was taking the last pair in his size. A little satisfying to know they are well liked. Found them in the Mrs. size but the style is slightly different as they have one open side. I would love those as well but they are not in available in my size.

Betsey Johnson

These are Steve Maddens from DSW. I had to return them as the vamp was to tight. You might be able to see that in the picture. They are a fantastic heels and I would have loved to keep them as I enjoy ankle straps and the color is great, but someone needs to enjoy them in public. 😉

Steve Madden

Another pair of Steve Maddens from DSW. These have a very elegant sparkly back and heel cover. The satin material; I find often are very unforgiving and make for a stiff upper and a little snug. These were obtained a few years ago on clearance.

A great pair of almond toe suede pumps by Jessica Simpson; obtained about four years ago from DSW on clearance. They are very comfy. The Mrs. liked them. 😉

 A great pair of patent white strappy sandals by Jante. They have a clear platform and heel. I got these about nine years ago from eBay. This designer is hit and miss for me; the sizing seems to be sporadic. These fit very well and they are comfortable. 😉

Jante

A pair of boots I obtained this fall from DSW are these work boots by Dirty Laundry. They also had them in black. I have not worn them out other than to the air port yet. Very comfortable and although the heel is shorter than I like, I do like these. They will be good for shoveling light snow. Love the neon yellow fishnet socks. 😉

Again with my awesome socks, this time in some great heelless electric blue round toe pumps by Styluxe. I got these from eBay about three years ago. They are a little snug and I am hoping to get them stretched out so I can wear them out to dinner sometime. 😉

Styluxe

I obtained these strappy black and white platforms sandals by Jessica Simpson from DSW this fall. They are very comfortable and they look great with the white heel; I am hoping to wear them out to dinner soon. It is a little cold out but I enjoy heels enough to tough it out. 😉

These cork strappy platform sandals by Enzo Angiolini were obtained from eBay this fall. They had a double instep strap but I had to remove one so they would fit better. I have had to do this from time to time and only do it to heels I cannot return; so often it is on heels obtained from eBay. They are some great looking heels and I may get them out to dinner this next summer. 😉

Another acquisition from eBay are these BCBG Generation wedges with a white knot vamp. The straps are very soft and comfortable. These are going to be a shoe for the boat next summer. 😉

BCBG Generations

BCBG Generations

Another boat shoe are these wedges by Sketchers. They look like a nautical theme with the blue and white strip straps and the style of the sole and cork wedges. Love them and they are comfortable. The only thing I dislike is the difficulty putting them on. The straps are ribbon like; although comfortable it makes it necessary to use your hands to put them on. 😉

Sketchers

These platform sandals in a taupe upper with a wood heel and snake skin buckle straps, were obtained from eBay this fall. They are made by Circa Joan David Luxe. A fantastic deal for sure and I love all the details. The instep straps are a little tight but not to bad.

These black patent, red heel and animal print heel cap pumps are by Torrid. The heel cap and heel are a suede material. I obtained them from eBay for a great price. Very comfortable and they look fantastic. I have not had a lot of luck with the quality of Torrid shoes but these are not bad. 😉

I obtained these wood sculpted heels with a green strappy upper from eBay for an extremely good deal. They are unique and unusual. I think they are going to be another fishing shoe. They are made by Ashro.

I love orange and these open toe suede pumps with a wood stack heel are by Steve Madden. I got them from eBay late this summer. I have a similar pair by another designer but they are a little different. Some day I will have the nerve to wear them out. 😉

Another eBay purchase are these espadrille wedges with a denim sandal upper are from Calvin Klein. These are certainly a fishing shoe but I think they will go well with some jeans for dinner. 😉

I obtained these BCBG Generation wedges from eBay this fall. I like the rugged tread and the cork wedge. The nude vamp is great and with the additional color of the white ankle strap makes these very flashy and universal. I was a little leery about the insole but when I put them on, the look certainly is intriguing. 😉

These Pleaser open toe patent black heels have a red detail around the ankle strap, vamp and sole. I obtained these about ten years ago from eBay. They are going to need some repair as one of the elastic straps is starting to come loose. I think they are certainly one of the sexiest looking styles. 😉

These Zigi Soho heels in brown have a tie instep and ankle strap. The round toe is very comfortable. The platform and heel is a wood looking man made material. I wore these DSW finds to dinner this last fall.

I will end this year with a reminder to take a moment and observe the pedicures I had in this post. Some of the great art of a wonderful and spectacular local nail shop. 😉

Hope you have enjoyed this years posts and I look forward to seeing you all in 2015.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉

THE FALL has FALL’N


It has officially arrived; yes you know it, I know it, we all know it. Fall is here! In some cases it is fantastic and in some cases it is not. How is it not, well if you are in Minnesota you know why; it gets cold, it starts to freeze, the snow starts to fall and seems like it never stops! The good stuff, well as minimal as it may be in the eyes of some, the color changes are fantastic.

An added not so fantastic thing is the change in attire; the skirts get longer and become pants, the high heel shoes get lower in height and eventually turn into boots. Sometimes the boots are not too bad and have a great heel. I say keep those awesome sexy high heel shoes out. Let’s be a little real here. Most often you go from door to door. As long as the snow is not falling, watch for ice & puddles and perhaps get dropped off close to the door. All will be fine! Here are some more of my collection and many new acquisitions. Yep, I have started buying more heels. I keep saying it; I need to slow that down for a while. 😉

These are a recent acquisition from eBay, I wore them fishing this last year as well as while working in the garage. Very comfy wedges in a unique blue. Made by Aerosoles. Have to point out this is one of my favorite pedi’s this year. 😉

These are some black patent pumps with a section of mesh on the upper. Obtained from DSW this summer. Wore these to dinner a couple weeks ago. Loved them! Made by Zigi soho.

Obtained these Steve Madden cork wedges with a matte black upper from DSW this summer as well. Did not get them on the lake but I sure will next year. They have a crisscross elastic strap which makes them easy to get on and off while keeping a secure hold. The down side is they are a little tight and can reduce the circulation in the foot from time to time.

An eBay purchase earlier this year are these shimmery black pumps by Carlos. They have a unique fabric covering giving them this awesome look. It also makes it a little tough to get them clean as you may see in a couple photos. Very good find. 😉

Another eBay buy are these Snake skin open toe pumps by Dollhouse. They have some awesome embellishments on the heel cap area; rhinestones and pointed studs. They are a little tight which makes them a pair for short term wear only. 😉

These next heels by The Highest Heel Collection are a fantastic color blue not well captured in a picture. They have the bullet stud embellishments around the platform and vamp strap. Another purchase from eBay this summer; absolutely love these and will need to find a place to wear them often. 😉

This eBay find was astonishing; it is hard to believe I found these for such a great deal. These Coach wedge slides with athletic trim have an adjustable vamp with buckle detail. They are made of the maintenance free material used on some of their bags. Extremely comfortable. I have worn these to dinner a couple times as well as fishing. I will use these to the end of their life for sure. 😉

These are a pair of DexFlex by Dexter. They are a matte black upper with a patent toe cap. The heel is four inches even though they look shorter. A lot of cushion and the uppers are very flexible. They are however a little short in length and thus cause a bit of discomfort. A bargain on eBay and may have to go back. 😉

A fun find on eBay this last spring. I wore them to work for some of these pictures. These are a gold shimmery upper with velvet covering on the platform and heel. Very comfortable fit; they have a pattern on them and I am not sure if they were suppose to be there or if they just happened to develop from wear. These are by Forever. 😉

These are a pair of sling back open toe pumps in patent black by Bass. Certainly a great deal from eBay; I have many like this style but not by this designer. They run a little short on me making them just a little snug but nothing unmanageable. I would classify them as a lower quality heel but they still look nice. 😉

These are an open toe slingback pump with a unique shaped heel. Hard to capture it but it tappers in on the sides and appears as a blade. They are in a patent black and have a large buckle embellishment along with a little added edge detail on the open toe. Obtained them from eBay this summer for a great price. 😉

These are a pair of Michael by Michael Kors open toe pumps in patent black. Love the little button detail on the top of the heel back. A little snug as many of the Michael Kors pumps are for me but a great deal on eBay for me to excuse the slight discomfort. Wore these out to dinner to a place I had not worn heels before. Everyone loved them! 😉

These were an eBay purchase this late summer. A shimmery holographic pale gold slingback platform pump. They are by Christian Siriano. Who would have thought Payless would have some awesome heels like these. I may have to start looking more closely at there shoes. They may be going out to dinner someday. 😉

These vintage wood heel mules are by Coach. They have a bow tie detail on a pleated polka dot vamp. Another great find on eBay and certainly a favorite for running out to get the mail in. I always love wood heels! 😉

Yet another great find on eBay are these open toe block heel with a black satin upper and gold piping detail. I would say a little snug for me, but not to bad. This material is always less forgiving. These are by Christian Siriano.

These are a find from eBay I have been watching for a long long time; finally a winner! 😉 These are a keyhole toe slingback with giraffe print canvas uppers with cork covering the heels and platform. Very fun looking and exciting. I have not worn these out yet but might have to do a Halloween thing with them. They are by Tallulah Blu. 😉

Spring is trying to spring


As the earth makes it repeated journey to the area for which we, in the northern hemisphere, more specifically the mid westerners of these united states of america,  and more precise those in the state of Minnesota, most enjoy, are particularly happy for this to be happening this year. Now, I take nothing away from those who also have had a rough/not so good/ dreadful winter but I can only speak from my experiences. This winter was horrible; one and a half million inches of snow, everyday the temperature was nearing absolute zero and as the spring equinox approaches, and even after the official point of spring being passed, we get some more snow and cold weather. I have entertained the desire to move. To another planet even… 😉 The worst part of this kind of weather is the difficulty in wearing heels. Not a big fan of tracking through snow and ice covered parking lots or sidewalks. We traveled to Arizona for a few days and I was able to bring some heels with me. I did not chance taking them out in the public areas which was a good choice as I happen to run into an acquaintance from my professional life. This would have not turned out well for me. I also obtained a few new pairs. I have many pictures again and I even have some from my recent job. I tried to include parts of my outfit so there are a few odd looking shots. Enjoy the show. 😉

First up are a pair of slingback sandals with a wood heel and platform; made by Mossimo. Obtained the from eBay several years ago. My Pedicure has a shamrock for the St. Patrick’s holiday. 😉

Next is a recent acquisition from DSW to use an expiring rewards certificate. These are by Calvin Klein Jeans. They have a great zipper detail and are a unique color green. At first they were a little snug but I think it might have been the barometric pressure that day… 😉 they are much more comfortable now. I plan on wearing these out to dinner soon. 😉

These London Rebels are from DSW. Clearance item, an attempt at getting some heels kinda like a boot but something I like. They are a little tight on my foot but I think I can stretch them out. Wore these out to dinner. I am not sure this designer is going to be a good fit for me in the long term as they are a little short in the arch area for the male foot. Still a fun boot/shoe. 😉

Another eBay find and a great deal. very low cost. I really like wood heels so grabbing these were an impulse. They are from Jessica Bennett; a brown/bronze mule with stud detail certainly make for a unique looking heel. A little loud for me to wear out even though I did wear them to work for these pictures. If you have noticed in many of the pictures in this post, I have on some work attire. 😉

Certainly another one of my favorites. These Steve Madden turtle shell pattern patent slingback cork wedges are wonderful. The awesome open toe I enjoy will be fun on the boat this summer. Found these on eBay this winter for an awesome low price. I think they went well with my sage green suit. 😉Steve Madden

 These suede pumps by Rocket Dog have a great knot detail on the vamp. I have several of these by this designer with the same or similar detailing or material. This blue looks kind of purple at the same time; depending on the light. I obtain these from DSW a few years ago as well.

Another winter eBay find are these tie up platform wedge sandals in black with a canvas heel cap by C Label. Very comfortable and they have that height I love. Going to be fun fishing in these but may be a bit high for rougher waters. I am also wearing a pair of thigh high stirrup stockings. I like these a lot. I may have to wear them on another cold day; of course hopping those go away soon.  😉

I have had these Michael Kors open toe black patent sling back wedge sandals for a long time. I obtained them from eBay with broken elastic straps and had to have them repaired. They are awesome. Hoping to wear these out to dinner soon. I took these to Tucson Arizona. It was after the Superbowl and if you can see, I have Denver’s logo on my toes. yup… I know.  😉

Another shoe I brought on vacation; slingback sandals patent black and white from Newport news. I got these over ten years ago. The vamp strap can sometimes not sit in the right spot and cause some over hang of the pinky toe. But they look great besides that. 😉

Newport News

Another great eBay find; These spiky open toe pumps have clear uppers with a patent black heel and piping. Made by Sheikh. I got these at a very low cost as the heel tips need to be replaced. If you ever find awesome heels needing heel tips, find a local cobbler and price them out. Most often it is a very low cost to add to the price of a shoe for a great deal. I hope to get these out this summer to dinner. In these pictures I am also wearing a skirt I got in NYC and some leggings I obtained from the eBay.  😉

These Jeffery Campbells are my first. I have other heelless shoes but not by this designer. I like the Mary Jane strap on the vamp and they are very comfortable. The color is a little pink. Not sure I will get out in these but I like them for sure. I am wearing one of the body stockings I have as well. 😉

These suede open toe orange pumps have a wood heel Very fun and comfortable by Diva Lounge. Got these for less than ten dollars on eBay this last winter. I might get out in these if I am lucky. Now that I have seen these pics, I think I need to get that purple again on my toes. 😉

I got these for a special treat from the Mrs. and her sister this winter. They found them in a local store call Dots; also the brand name. They have some great embellishments. I am not a huge fan of the pointy toes but these are comfortable and not exaggerated. If I get the chance I will wear them out to dinner.

The Mrs. gave me these as a Christmas gift this last season. Obtained them from Target on clearance for eight dollars. They are a little tight in the toe box. I might be able to stretch them out. These are by Sam & Libby; a nude heel & ankle strap sandal with a gold vamp and detailed platform.

A pair I had photographed a long time ago but had not remember the name. These pewter sandals by Delicious are very comfortable with a uniquely textured material and a somewhat elaborate strappy design they are very versatile and attractive. An eBay find many years ago. 😉

So that is what we have to show thus far. Hoping to wear many more heels to work for pictures. Please offer those positive comments as I always enjoy and appreciate them. 😉

Dear Santa, All I want for Xmass…


Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is one or two hundred pairs of new heels. 😉

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, high heels were clicking, very pleasing to the spouse.

The stockings were hung after washing with care in hopes to be worn with heels placing me high in the air.

The children have rustled up their own homes and beds, so visions of whatever dance in their heads.

The Mrs. in her lingerie and me in my skirt, enjoying the night with booze and a flirt…

I did re-write the entire poem but I was not happy with the final results. As time is drawing near I felt I needed to get this post going before the end of the year.

This post may be another long one; I have obtained a few new pairs of heels again in the last month or so, but nothing I would be shamed for.

I am done traveling for now so I have the possibility to get a bunch of new photos taken of my collection. It might get out of hand. 😉

Well on with the fun. Enjoy and keep an eye out for the final words in this post. 😉

These are a patent Maroon Mary Jane style pump by Sofft. A heel slightly lower than I like but I enjoy the color. I have worn these out to dinner and may have posted them in the past. This designer seems to be comfy and room; certainly wearable for a long period of time. A DSW purchase a couple years ago.

A black and beige suede platform pump by Jessica Simpson purchased at DSW several years ago. I wore these to dinner. These were the first pair I wore out with the Mrs. I also wore a pair of wide leg pants and a sweater. These are extremely comfortable. I feel I may have posted these in the past.

A patent red mule from Fredericks of Hollywood. I obtained these from Fredericks online about ten years ago. They are certainly showing there age as the shine has worn off. The vamp is a little snug but other than that they are comfortable.

A black patent pump by Steve Madden from DSW several years ago. I got these on clearance as I do many of my shoes. A very comfortable heel with a hidden platform. The picture does not show the unique style of the toe very well but they are a little different from the regular point. I am sure I will wear these out someday. 😉

These sandals by Miss America Pageant are from DSW. They are a tan suede and the ankle/instep strap is a full elastic band. These have a wood stacked heel and platform. Very high feeling heel and certainly something one must be used to wearing to go for a long distance.

A unique style strappy open toe bootie wedge by Steve Madden purchased from DSW on clearance a few years ago for about fourteen dollars. I think most people do not find them attractive or something. I am not a big fan of them but they were a real good deal. The bottom two straps are not elastic like the others and make the shoe a little tight. They have a back zip enclosure for easy on and off. I would wear them out if the comfort was a little better.

A purple open toe platform pump with a black cylinder shape heel by Michael Kors. These are a little tight on me but I have worn them for a few hours around the house. I might try them out someday as I think I can manage. They are fun to wear. I obtained these from eBay several months ago. The uppers are real leather and I might have some luck stretching them for a better fit. I took several fun pics with these but I maintained discipline so not to over share.  😉

These are a new purchase from DSW in November. A patent black dorsey style open toe platform pump with elastic instep straps by Jessica Simpson. I have been watching these for a long time and found them on clearance so I had to have them. Extremely comfortable and I think these may be my next dinner pair if the snow stops falling. 😉

These are another pair I purchased at the same time also on clearance. I wanted these since the beginning of the year. I could only find them in white and resorted to buying them (Posted earlier this year). When I found these in black I was not going to hesitate to get them. A patent black open toe slingback also by Jessica Simpson. The toe area is squared off adding to the unique style and giving a little more room in the toe-box. 😉

A recent acquisition from eBay these faux wood notch wedge patent black sandals are by Rockawear. Very comfortable and flashy. I joked about wearing them out sometime and the Mrs. was a little concerned as they certainly attract attention. 😉

A dark beige squared off open toe platform pump by Steve Madden. I obtained these a few years ago from DSW. I actually had to return the first pair as they had a lump in the toe box and caused great discomfort. It was fun explaing to the staff how I knew it was a problem. After that I have worn these out to drive places but not yet to dinner. Sometime soon I will as they are very nice. 😉

An orange slingback sandal by Type Z having a buckle accent and perforations on the vamp. I got these from eBay a couple years ago. Not the most attractive shoe but when they are on a foot they look much better. I think with shipping they were just over four dollars. 😉

A sneaker inspired wedge by BCBGirls in patent white and having a silver emblem on the open toe vamp, these were purchased from eBay several years ago and I have worn these fishing several times. The wedge is a little lower than I like but on the boat it certainly is helpful. 😉

The patent black baby-doll round toe, thick half round heel pumps are from Fredericks of Hollywood. Extremely comfortable heels. These have had some of the highest level of wear by me. I wore these to work almost everyday roughly ten years ago. I would walk to the doors very early in the morning, No one was around so I could get away with it. Sometimes I would wear them during the day as I had them with me and nobody but the Mrs. knew about it. These are a great pair of heels. 😉 I purchased these online just over ten years ago and it is awesome I still have them! 😉

Fredericks of Hollywood

Fredericks of Hollywood

These are a sexy dancer style heel, with clear soles, and a glitter upper. If I remember correctly they are seven inches tall. I can walk in them just fine and it is certainly fun seeing things from that height. I obtained these from eBay many years ago. Do not think these will ever get out of the house… well may be for a Halloween costume. 😉

A red patent pointed toe pump by The Highest Heel are detailed with clear sides. Not a style I like much, the extreme pointed toe makes the shoe look extremely long. I obtained these from eBay several years ago and the pictures did not look as though the toes were as long as they are. I do like the color and they are a little tight from the shape of the toe box. I am also wearing my glitter open toe & heel socks from DSW by Jessica Simpson. A little added fun. 😉

These cork heel and platform slingback sandals in patent black have a web style vamp. I got these from DSW several years ago on clearance. They are by Kelly & Katie. The cut of the vamp does rub the big toe a little odd sometimes but I think I can stretch that to a more comfortable position. 😉

These are a gold sequin wrapped wedge with a gold crackled vamp by Colin Stuart purchased from eBay a few years ago. The vamp is a little tighter than most Colin Stuarts and make these a little tough to wear. Other wise they are a comfortable shoe. I planned on wearing them fishing but the tight vamp makes it undesirable to do so.

Colin Stuart

These very sexy black patent open toe slingbacks by Pleaser have an added clear portion to the vamp and uppers. I purchased these from eBay several years ago and just love them. I might get out in these some day but I have worn them many times around the house. 😉

A silver sandal by Club Zone obtained from eBay. A very cheap find and the shoe is a fun style to wear. After taking the pictures here, the ankle straps on one of the shoes broke. I was not happy but I think I can convert them to a mule. 😉 They are a great shoe as the vamp straps are also adjustable. A great way to enable comfort for all types of feet. 😉

These fetish ankle cuff sandals are by Ellie. I found them on eBay many years ago and had to have them. I love this style shoe. The down side is the extremely small toe-box making for a very small strap and that is not good for a large male foot. I am sure females have this issue from time to time as well. I still love them. 😉

These are a notch wedge sandal with jewel embellished buckles on the crisscross vamp in a patent white by Ellie. I got these from eBay many years ago. Very comfortable when you get the buckles in the right place. They do float on the vamp and I think that is good as every foot is not the same. 😉

These mule sandals feature a cage style vamp in patent black from Fredericks of Hollywood. I got these on line several years ago. They are a little snug and leave there impression on my foot which can be uncomfortable after a while. They are attractive when worn however. 😉

These BCBG Paris sandals in a mustard yellow were obtained from eBay earlier this year. I have these in a couple other colors as well. These are a little smaller fit than the others which I am displeased with. I really like the color but they are hard to wear for a long time. I might be able to stretch them a little to help. We will see. 😉

A very dark purplish brown colored open toe platform pump by Paprika were obtained from Burlington Coat Factory several years ago. A very snug fitting shoe.

These nude open toe platform pumps are by Fredericks of Hollywood. Purchased several years ago and very comfortable. The color is extremely light as you can tell by the pictures washing them out. I think these was when the hidden platform was becoming a bigger thing. 😉

Fredericks of Hollywood

These platform sandals are also a dancer style heel, about seven inches tall, a clear strap vamp with an added jewel embellished strap and an hourglass shaped wide heel. The clear straps always get a little tight for me. I have tried the blow dryer method and have not been successful. Perhaps I need to do it more than a couple times to get the shoes to conform to my foot better. These were an eBay purchase several years ago. 😉

I realize I mentioned these above but here they are. These are the black version of the Fredericks of Hollywood twisted vamp mules. Certainly a fun shoe and I think a little dated nowadays. 😉

Another Fredericks of Hollywood purchase several years ago, these metallic dorsey single strap vamp pumps are a bright electric pink. They have a ribbon bow on the vamp and a short heel. I like this style so much a I was willing to get what ever color was in my size. At the time I was not as concerned with the lower heels. These are comfortable but I do not think I will get out of the house in them. 😉

These are another one of my fishing shoes, a pin-stripe satin upper, round toe slingback espadrille wedge with bow accent by American Eagle. Purchased from eBay several years ago. They are easy on and off for the fishing crowd. The wedge covering has a twisted rope look.

A pair of Rocketdog pumps in a black suede featuring a difficult to see pleated vamp. The heels are just a little shorter than I like but they are very comfortable with the almond toe. I wore these to a weekend getaway with the Mrs. Almost went to dinner in them as I had them on while driving, and the Mrs. was a little worried being we were in a strange place. Wore them around the resort very often though. 😉

I have a few more but am missing some names so they will be on the next post, probably next year.

I want to thank everyone for your views, comments and support this past year. I have been getting out in heels more often and with more confidence.

I wish you all a very happy holidays and a spectacular new year!

I look forward to seeing you all again soon. 😉

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! 😉

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!!!

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. 😉
